Default Aloe Vera lotion

So I noticed my hedgie had a little dry spot on his snout so my first thought was to put some natural unscented lotion on it. I got Banana Boat lotion which has aloe vera added in it and I rubbed in a small amount. It didn't occur to me that aloe could be poisonous. I'm always so careful with him and I've never accidentally done anything like this. How toxic is it and will he be okay? It wasn't a lot, and the lotion isn't super potent with aloe..I'm just worried. It just happened about 30 minutes ago and he's acting fine. TYIA
