Forever and its affiliates are the worlds largest grower, manufacturers and distributors of aloe vera products. Founded in 1978, the company is dedicated to supplying products that help people.
Rather than just adding just a few drops of aloe vera to our products in order to get customers to buy them, we start fresh, potent aloe vera and then add just enough of the other ingredients required to create a whole range of health care, make up, and skin care products. In other words the number one ingredient in most of our products is stabilised 100% aloe vera gel
Our Aloe Vera…..
We own extensive aloe vera plantations in the Rio grande Valley, southern Texas, as well as in the Dominican Republic. Every step of the growing process is tended by expert and caring personnel, from the nursery where the pups are nurtured, through to the meticulously cultivated fields of mature aloe vera plant, and on to the carefully timed, hand harvesting. Only mature aloe vera plants are harvested, when they reach their full potency after four years of growth.

Our sister company, Aloe vera America (AVA) stabilises the gel and formulates the products, so that they are made on a timely basis.
They do not order a big batch of aloe once or twice a year and let it sit around getting old. You can be assured of getting fresh product, made only a matter of weeks before arriving at your door. This “vertical integration” is a key benefit of our products.

Aloe Vera Has Many Names Around The World!
Often referred to as the “Burns plant”, Aloe Vera is unlike any other plant. It flourishes in warm dry climates, and it looks similar to a cactus with fleshy thorny leaves. It is In fact a member of the Lily family. It stays moist where other plants wither and die; it achieves this through closing its pores to prevent moisture loss.
Species of Aloe Vera;
There are approximately 400 species of Aloe, but it is the Aloe Barbadensis Miller is the (“true Aloe”) a plant which has been of most use to mankind due to its beneficial properties. Ancient records now show us that the benefits of Aloe Vera have been known for centuries. With its therapeutic advantages and beneficial properties it has been used for more than 2000 years.
The earliest record of Aloe Vera being used is on a Sumerian tablet dating from 2100 BC.
Testimonials have been made and recorded through history by great individuals such as Mahatma Gandhi, who stated that Aloe Vera sustained him during his fasting periods , Alexander the great and the ancient Queen Cleopatra of Egypt all used Aloe-Vera in some manner, it is said by many that the Aloe Vera benefits are nothing short of a miracle…
There are only four Aloe Vera Species that are beneficial to humans and animals and yes the “Aloe Barbadensis miller” is significantly at the top of those four species.
So Who Discovered the Benefits of Aloe Vera?
George Ebers first discovered its antiquity in 1862 in an Egyptian papyrus dated 1550 BC. It was used to great effect by Greek and Roman physicians as a medicinal herb. Researchers have found that both the ancient Chinese and Indian cultures used Aloe Vera. Egyptian Queens associated its use with their physical beauty. Aloe is also referred to in the Bible, and the legend suggests that Alexander the Great conquered the island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean to secure supplies of Aloe plants to treat the battle wounds of his wounded and dying soldiers.
Aloe Vera Bounce’s Back
Aloe Vera remained a prominent herbal remedy but as the Northern European countries expanded their colonization of the world, Aloe Vera started to decline from grace.It is not clear why this was so, but a possible explanation is the difference between the use of Aloe Vera in tropical climates, compared with the temperate north. In tropical countries where Aloe grew naturally, there was an abundance of fresh Aloe.
However, Aloe Vera had to be imported to the temperate north, but inevitably degraded in transit.
Physicians in Europe therefore never got to experience the true benefit of Aloe Vera, and sabotaged reports of the wonders that the Aloe Vera Barbadensis plant could do for human health.
As a consequence Aloe Vera never really “took hold” in the knowledge of European Physicians and the “remarkable benefits” were felt to be nothing more myth than fact.
As science developed Aloe Vera was shelved and discarded along with many other natural herbal remedies of an earlier age which were considered to be “folk lore remedies”, not worthy of any further scientific examination.

“Stabilised Aloe Vera Gel”
So What Is Stabilisation..
- Stabilisation is a method of preserving the gel in a state close as possible to its original form, without losing the original potency and effectiveness of the fresh leaf.
- Aloe Vera is popular in tropical areas, and during the 1950′s the interest in Aloe Vera benefits re-surged and was refreshed, but the main obstacle to it being used outside of tropical areas was the need to prevent the inner gel from oxidization.
- The use of Aloe Vera in climates where it does not grow is only made possible by a process called stabilisation, for example if you slice a banana or an apple and leave it open to oxygen, the fruit quickly discolors, this is how it also is for aloe.
- In the wild the inner leaf gel is protected by the fleshy outer rind that prevents moisture loss and protects it from the atmosphere once the leaf is cut the process of oxidation begins which if left would deplete precious gel of many of its beneficial properties.
- Many attempts were made to stabilise the gel, but this failed as excessive heat destroys the essence of Aloe Vera gel through oxidization, also higher than acceptable contents of Aloin remained which is a potent laxative. Indeed it was the laxative powers of the un-pure Aloe Vera gel that helped Aloe Vera maintain a toehold in Western medical science.
Without stabilisation the product would degrade even under refrigeration.
