Aloe & History

The aloe (Aloe) is a plant known to us under the same name. It is found on several continents and has its origin on the Arabian Peninsula. The plant is characterized by its large, thick and fleshy leaves. The leaves are usually point-shaped and the edges are protected by distinctive thorns. Its colour varies from gray to bright green.

It stores juice in its thick leaves to keep itself alive during the dry periods. The aloe plant has red or yellow small flowers, which are present in large numbers on the stem in the center of the plant. The leaves are filled up with pulp and juice. The plant juice from the leaves can be used for cosmetic purposes.


Aloe & South Africa

The aloe is found in large numbers in South Africa. In total there are ± 600 different varieties, of which ± 400 varieties are found on the mainland of Africa and ± 155 varieties in South Africa.

The plant grows in almost all regions; from dry semi-desert areas to the savannah and in the rainforests, such as in the Blyde River Canyon and on Table Mountain.

The aloe plays an important role in the traditions of many African nations and has been used for centuries because of its fantastic properties, to recover from skin burns, and to moisturize and protect. Especially among the Bushmen and Xhosa populations, nations living in South Africa.
