How is it  used in our products ?
We use aloe vera in powder or juice form, depending on the type of cosmetic products in which it is formulated. We formulate it mainly in our skincare products for its moisturizing benefits and in our after-sun cosmetic products for its moisturizing and soothing properties. Sunburnt skin is soothed.
With our responsible sourcing program, in collaboration with Pronatura and MexiAloe, we plan to enable 30 households in 5 villages to grow aloe by 2022.

What is Aloe  vera ?
Aloe vera is a plant from the succulent family. Full of water and rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids, it is known for the moisturizing properties of the gel extracted from its leaves.
In our cosmetic products, aloe vera appears in the list of ingredients on the packaging under the names ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE POWDER, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF WATER oder ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF POWDER.
What is it  used for ?
Where does it  come from ?
Aloe is a plant that can grow up to 5 meters high. Its leaves are grey-green, thick, tight and fleshy, edged with small prickles, or serrated. They contain a translucent, gelatinous pulp. They are harvested by hand and only the fleshiest whole leaves are selected. Within 6 hours of harvesting, they are sent to the nearby MexiAloe plant in the state of Campèche. The transparent pulp is then extracted manually by slitting the leaves. It is comprised of 99.5% water. It is filtered, stabilized and pasteurized to obtain a gel. The gel can be dehydrated to produce a powder.
We mainly use aloe vera in powder form, which limits the CO2 emissions linked to the transport from Mexico, where the aloe comes from (either from the solidarity sourcing project in Yucatan, or from a certified organic and fair trade supply chain).
