We use "Made from + material" (when the material changes its nature, i.e., the original substance can't be seen or left:

The lotion is made from aloe Vera.

But I have read : "In short, "made with X" means that X is one of the ingredients or materials that went into the object." https://tinyurl.com/yddlxx2f

It means we can use : "Made with + ingredients" :

The lotion is made with aloe Vera.

Are 'from' and 'with' interchangeable in the given sentence?

  • @ColleenV, I know the difference between "made from" and "made of". But my question is different. It's about "made from" vs. "made with" in a given sentence. – Sandip Kumar Mandal Jun 2 '20 at 15:49

    My mistake for rushing. there are a number of overlapping questions but I think this is the relevant one ell.stackexchange.com/q/24535/9161 and frankly, I'm going to go ahead a downvote because you could have done that search yourself before you asked. – ColleenV Jun 2 '20 at 16:14

  • Ok, I have edited my question. I have seen that usage of 'made with' in one of the comments here : tinyurl.com/yddlxx2f – Sandip Kumar Mandal Jun 4 '20 at 3:01
