THE LIFEBLOOD OF FOREVER
Aloe Barbadensis Miller. It’s a mouthful, but it’s a name worth knowing. There are around 400 species of Aloe plants found in arid regions throughout the world. They’re each beneficial in their own way, but there is only one species that has been recognized for millennia for its magically soothing abilities… Aloe Barbadensis Miller. As one of the oldest recognized botanicals, records of Aloe exist on Sumerian clay tablets from as early as 2200 BC; Aloe Vera has long been lauded throughout history for its natural soothing, cooling and moisturizing abilities. It is known for soothing minor burns, comforting and moisturizing stressed skin, and even helping to aid in your skin’s natural ability to regenerate itself. With science, innovation and our devoted research and development team, Forever is dedicated to bringing the best Aloe Vera directly to you
Forever Aloe Vera is grown at our plantations in the Dominican Republic and in Texas. The Forever Aloe is carefully grown and cultivated, ensuring the highest possible plant quality. Aloe is often referred to as nature's best gift due to the proven health benefits derived from the gel found inside the leaf. Growing Aloe with care in the best possible climate and conditions, guarantees that you receive the best products available. From plant to product to you!
OWNING OUR PLANTATIONS
At Forever Living it is often said “anything less than the best will never do,” and we believe that there is no better place to begin setting the bar for the highest standards in the industry than right where it all begins, the Aloe plantation. Aloe Vera gel is the primary ingredient in many of our phenomenal products and we take great care in making sure that we harvest only the best. In order to maintain complete quality control over our Aloe, Forever Living owns and controls 100% of its Aloe plantation in the Rio Grande Valley of southern Texas and 100% of its 6,500-acre plantation in the Dominican Republic—the largest in the world. By controlling 100% of our plantations we control the planting season, plant selection, methods of fertilization and weed control, seasons of harvest, processing, storage and delivery. Most importantly, it means that when processed Aloe Vera gel arrives at our manufacturing facility there is absolutely no question – what-so-ever – as to the quality of the source. At Forever Living we always know that we’re using the best Aloe Vera on the planet for our amazing products. Why? Because we grew it ourselves!
HARVESTED BY HAND
From planting to tending to harvesting, our Aloe plants are carefully nurtured with the same level of care and standards that we put into to every one of our final products. 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.
PROCESSING THE BEST
When it comes to the examination and processing of our naturally farmed Aloe, nothing beats hands on quality control. Like vigilant chefs in our kitchen, only the best of ingredients make it to the table. Our state of the art facility allows us to seal in the freshness within hours of harvest so the purest Aloe can be shipped to our product labs without losing any of its powerful properties!
ONLY THE BEST
When Rex envisioned the dynamics of what was to become Forever, one of the fundamental aspects was the ability to provide the highest quality products on the planet. Rex’s devotion to quality has never changed or been compromised. It is exactly why we will accept nothing less than 100% control of our process from planting to finished product. You’ve heard it before, but at Forever Living, “Nothing less than the best will ever do.” And that’s just the plain and natural truth. Forever Living demands nothing less than the most exemplary quality at every step of every process to insure the quality of our harvested aloe. We remain equally diligent in making sure that it arrives at our manufacturing facility in pristine form. Leaves are processed within hours in order to insure that the freshest Aloe Vera gel arrives intact with all its inherent qualities so that at no point in time are we working with anything less than the best source material on the planet. And when it comes to manufacturing our final products, you can rest assured that every single one has been just as carefully nurtured into existence with the same level of care, diligent attention and exemplary standards that we put into to every one of our so carefully tended and harvested Aloe plants. That’s the Forever Living way – that’s the Rex Maughan way.
