Why Aloe barbadensis
Aloe barbadensis is also known as the True Aloe (Aloe vera). Is the main ingredient in most of all our products and the most researched of all the aloes worldwide. It is well known for its medicinal, pharmaceutical and food properties.
It is important to note that not all aloe products are made from the aloe barbadensis plant and that some aloe plants are poisonous. Aloe Vera contains amino acids, minerals, vitamins and enzymes that provide various health benefits to our bodies.
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.
