We supply the recommended suckers to farmers at a regulated cost, supervise the planting and offers extension services as well. On maturity, the company trains farmers on quality harvesting and delivery to the factory for processing. In 2009 it developed the Aloe vera soap and Aloe vera natural extract/juice from aloe planted earlier and launched them in the market. The country was going through economic turmoil following the post election violence and so growth was very limited.
The company was in industrial incubation at Kenya Industrial Research & Development Institute for close to two years up to September 2010. During that period it developed aloe vera shampoo, Aloe vera body cream, Aloe vera hair food, Aloe petroleum jelly and pruna herbal tea.
In October 2010, the company relocated to Kasarani and has since developed Aloe vera body lotion, Aloe vera Pink lotion, Avocado hair food, Aloe vera hair gel, and Aloe glycerine soap. All these have been launched and are selling in supermarkets and other outlets.
In the year 2015, the company moved to its current location in Kikuyu in search for more space. Here, a new and unique range of Aloe barbadensis based products have been introduced to the market, they include; Aloe barbadensis powder, Lemongrass Tea, Alobar Lotion with Milk and Shea butter, Alobar jelly with Shea butter, Alobar conditioner, Aloe vera Shampoo with Tea tree and Avocado oil, Hand wash with Lemongrass and tea tree, etc.
All our products go through rigorous testing procedures before submission to Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs) for certification.
With decades of combined Research & Development (R&D), experience in product formulation and the manufacture of herbal consumer products, the company has started offering contract manufacturing services to individuals and startup companies who would wish to grow their private brands in manufacturing. We are strategically positioned to provide you with seamless supply and support.

Description of production process
The main aspect of our production process is the extraction of aloe vera gel which is the key ingredient in all but one product. The raw aloe vera leaf is received from the farm early in the morning and processing begins immediately. It is taken through washing, sanitization, filleting, washing, crushing, pulping, pasteurization and preservation, then cooling and storage. For aloe vera natural extract, our main product, the gel is flavoured (and sweetened if necessary) and bottled. Great care is taken to prevent product contamination.
