It took about a month and a half for my damaged areas to fully heal, which I didn't mind since my lips stopped peeling gradually throughout the process. The ingredients listed are aloe vera, soy bean oil, glycerin, and gelatin. The other ingredients could have been why I only needed to apply every few hours. I didn't try the plant yet, but the capsules are awesome, for just five bucks too. I've spent thousands already and the solution was a plant gel capsules for five bucks wtf haha oh well.
