About Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera Plant

The Best Aloe for the Best Products

Aloe Barbadensis Miller. It’s a mouthful, but it’s a name worth knowing.

There are around 400 species of aloe plants. They are all succulents found in arid regions throughout the world. They’re each beneficial in their own ways, but there is only one species that has been recognized for millenia for its magically soothing abilities—Aloe Barbadensis Miller.

Records of this plant exist on Sumerian clay tablets from as early as 2200 BC. Aloe’s cosmetic and medical benefits were prized the by ancient civilizations of Egypt, China, Greece, Rome, India, and Arabia. Just like these ancient civilizations, Forever Living reveres aloe for its soothing, nurturing properties.

We rely on the most valuable, most exclusive aloe vera to enhance our health and beauty products. We own all the aloe plantations used to make our products, so we can guarantee the purity and potency of all our products.

Our aloe vera products were the first to be awarded The International Aloe Science Council’s Seal of Approval. Look for their seal of approval on all of our aloe products.

We insist on the best—and that’s exactly what you get.

Our farmers harvest our Aloe by hand, treating it with great care. The leaves are processed within hours, so you get the purest, freshest Aloe Vera gel intact with all its inherent qualities.

 

More Than Just a Burn Balm

You probably know aloe to be a cooling botanical that soothes burns and other skin irritations. While soothing burns is one of aloe’s amazing abilities, there’s so much more to aloe. As a succulent plant that thrives in even the driest of deserts, aloe’s graceful sword-like leaves are filled with hundreds of nutritional compounds and life-sustaining moisture that benefit the body on the inside and out.

Forever Living provides dozens of products featuring stabilized aloe vera in its purest, most potent form. From nutritional drinks to soothing lotions, and beautifying treatments, you’ll notice the aloe difference right away. Every product we offer nourishes and soothes, helping improve your overall wellness and health.

 

Why Drink Aloe?

The essential goodness in Aloe Vera makes it an excellent health drink. Our exclusive aloe drinks are made only from the inner-leaf fillets of the Aloe barbadensis plant with nothing filtered out. Even the pulp is included, just as with other natural juice products. Only the outer rinds containing the bitter aloin-containing sap are left out and are later trilled into the soil.

Our Aloe drinks were the first to be certified by the International Aloe Science Council (IASC). Enjoy the healthy goodness of Forever Living’s Aloe Vera Gel and other Aloe Vera drinks today – the first to be certified, and still the best!
