Aloe Vera Juice is derived from the Aloe barbadensis plant, containing over 200 active components including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids, and is also one of the few plants that contains vitamin B12. Aloe Vera plants are selected for harvesting by age and according to the drop of the leaves, indicating the maturity of the leaves, in order to keep all the active ingredients in full concentration. The leaves are inspected, and only the highest quality leaves are accepted and used. The leaves are then cleaned, rinsed, and filleted to separate the gel from the skin. The aloin is removed to begin the process of decolorizing the Aloe Vera. The gel is also inspected for skin cuttings, which are removed. The Aloe Vera is then filtered to remove pulp and any foreign matter, and deodorized by filtering the Aloe Vera through an activated charcoal system. Lastly, the Aloe Vera is tested for pH and temperature accuracy, to ensure a high quality product.
Aloe Vera has both internal and external applications, including beverages, food, dietary supplement formulations, personal care, and cosmetic products.
