From the manufacturer's website:
Our Fleet® Glycerin Suppository now formulated with Aloe is a convenient alternative for those who prefer not to use liquid enemas. The suppository is easily inserted rectally, allowing it to act locally in the colon without having to go through the entire digestive system. Doctor-recommended glycerin works by attracting water into the stool to promote a bowel movement.
