About Our Aloe

Owning 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!


Natural Fertilizers And Weed Control

Healthy Plants grow in a healthy environment. At both our Texas and Dominican Republic farms we use free range goats and sheep to naturally control weeds and provide 100% natural fertilizer. This allows for us to grow a superb crop without compromising the health of the Aloe or the environment.


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.
