Aloe barbadensis Miller is the richest aloe species in terms of its nutritional and health properties and this is the type that grows here.

Aloe vera is becoming increasingly popular in both the beauty and health industries, and is used for its healing and beautifying properties. The aloe vera plant is one of the oldest recorded botanical crops dating back to 2200 BC.

We know our aloe vera best
FOREVER is the world’s largest manufacturer and marketer of aloe vera products. We own the plantations in the USA and the Caribbean – where the climate is ideal for this purpose. Therefore we can say exactly how and where the plant was grown and guarantee that there were no pesticides or chemical fertilizers in our aloe fields. Over the course of four decades, FOREVER has grown to be the most important manufacturer of aloe vera products in the world by striking the right balance between tradition and innovation.
Proud of a long tradition
We have been growing and harvesting our aloe vera leaves using the same method for over 45 years – each plant is carefully nurtured and harvested by hand. It can be easier and more profitable to use automated machines to harvest the aloe vera leaves quickly, and rely less on human touch. But this shortcut, in the guise of progress, has a real price. It crushes and destroys larger parts of the plant, leading to environmental damage and mediocre quality in the finished product. There is no substitute for human touch when it comes to choosing the perfect leaves.
Innovation in action
After harvest, the next stop is an off-field factory where each leaf is manually decanted to use the maximum amount of the leaf’s inner gel. The piloting is done with smooth and flowing movements that require a combination of speed and precision. After the gel is tested, it goes through the stabilization process , which uses a flash heating method to preserve the benefits and freshness of the inside of the aloe vera leaf while safely reducing the amount of bad bacteria. In this way, the need to use preservatives is eliminated.
Studies have shown that this process preserves 300% more of the aloe vera’s natural vitamin content. To ensure the highest nutritional value is preserved, FOREVER’s aloe vera is always processed within six hours of harvest.
The people who make it happen
Investing in the right processing processes cannot work if you don’t also invest in the right people. This is why the FOREVER company pays its employees in the Dominican Republic a salary that is 40% to 50% higher than other companies operating in the same region. The workers employed in the company’s fields and processing plants know that the quality of work they put in every day is essential to the production of Forever products that people all over the world rely on.
Fresh straight from our fields
It all starts in our aloe vera plantations in Texas and the Dominican Republic
The stabilization process - our unique patent
FOREVER’s aloe vera is not boiled or pasteurized, which are cheaper and faster preservation processes. Too high a heat, destroys the active ingredients. We only use temperatures below the Pasteur level – a process also known as the “cold process” – in order to ensure the preservation of the activity of the enzymes and other components that are sensitive to high temperatures. The cold process locks in the nutrients immediately after harvesting and allows the product to retain its fullness for a very long time. FOREVER’s aloe vera is not reconstituted from a frozen wave or from its dried powder. Freezing the wave or drying it makes it possible to reach a higher “concentration” and “strength” but not necessarily a higher activity. FOREVER products are made from 100% stabilized aloe vera gel, straight from the plant into the product, and to you.
