Why Aloe Ferox?

Aloe Unique brings you a range of skin care treatments containing the powerful active ingredients of the Aloe Ferox plant. Containing almost twice as many amino acids as Aloe Vera, Aloe Ferox is ideal for skin care as it has been scientifically proven to penetrate the skin to the deepest layer. The Aloe Ferox plant is rich in amino acids, the powerful agent Aloin, as well as polysaccharides and other plant metabolites so it contributes to a soft and smooth skin that is hydrated, nourished and rejuvenated.

Active ingredients

Cape Aloe Ferox Gel

Has a dilatory effect on the capillaries and the veins. This results in an increase of the amount of nutrients being transported. With more nutrients available for growth, nutrition and repair, the process of rejuvenation and regeneration can occur more rapidly.

The growth rate of cells is dependent on the amount of African Cape Aloe gel used – the higer the concentration, the higer the growth rate of the cells.

Aloe ferox also stimulates normal lymphocytes and possesses enzymes which stimulate the growth of new cells.
The skin is also composed of polypeptide chains that form aggregates of collagen fibrils, which influence the swelling and water uptake by the skin ( plump-up effect ). The diffusion of water through the skin is limted and ontrolled by the skin surface, that is in equilibruim with the atmosphere and underlying tissue. Since Aloe consits approximately 99 % of water it penetrates through the Stratum Corneum to the vascular dermal area, thus hydrating the skin. Aloe Ferox is also known to form a cover that prevent the escape of moisture in the skin.

Free range Farming

Aloe Ferox grows wild and is harvested using ancient methods. This provides sustainable jobs for members of the local community.

The aloe leaves are placed in stacks in a circle around a hollow
in the ground. The juice from the leaves drips down and is collected in the hollow.

After the juice has been collected, boiled and cooled down it is crystallized. It then gets crushed to produce bitter crystals.
