I saw some in the supermarket and here is the list of its ingredients:

Water, Aloe Vera (35%), Grape Juice (24%), Fruit Sugars, Lemon Juice, Natural Flavourings, Vitamin C

Is this suitable for soaping? If it is, can I replace 100% of the water with that?

I wouldn't use it. It doesn't have much aloe and the amount of sugars is likely to cause overheating issues. You want 100% aloe juice, check the medicine isle or a pharmacy. You get get a 1 gallon jug at walmart for around $6 and it can be used for 100% water replacement.

Thank you for that. I'll check the pharmacy section as you suggest. Unfortunately, I live in the UK so I cannot go to Walmart.
