My name is June Copeland de Jager.  About 18 years ago I started using  Aloe Ferox products, when the products I had used for sensitive skin were withdrawn from the market.

I had tried and given away so many products over the years, because they either made my skin feel like I had put acid on it or I would break out in an allergic rash.

I was in the pharmacy one day, looking at what was on offer, and the salesgirl came to help.  There was nothing there that I hadn’t already tried and she said have you tried Aloe Ferox products. I hadn’t. I had never heard of them.  She quietly informed me they were only handled by agents and she gave me the name and number of one in town.

I got hold of the agent tried two or three of the products and have been using them ever since.  My sister who was visiting from Canada said I’ve never heard of the products, if they are so good why not put up a site on the internet, which I did and which she helped me get started.That was 13 years ago. This is a new site and with a new look so feel free to comment.

The Aloe Ferox Story

Aloe Ferox is indigenous to one province in South Africa, and nowhere else on earth! There are over 100 species of aloe in South Africa, but Aloe Ferox is the one that had been used by the indigenous people long before the arrival of Europeans, to what is now the Cape Province. The settlers soon learned from their native labour the value of this plant. It wasn’t until the very recent past that it was harvested, processed and packaged for local markets, and more recently to overseas markets through strategically based agents.

In an era where more and more people are turning towards natural remedies, the natural Cape Aloe Ferox from South Africa is fast becoming one of the top natural remedies for a variety of skin conditions and various medical ailments. Testimonies stream in every day from grateful users  of  the products  which have helped them with a variety of complaints from arthritis, skin cancer, burns, eczema, psoriasis, digestive problems,enlarge prostate, blood pressure problems and many more. Some of these testimonies make  one shake their head and yet the healing properties of the humble aloe have been known for millenia. Aloe is mentioned in the Bible as a healing herb and it is known that the ancient Mesopotamians used the sap from aloes against skin infection. Spanish Explorers kept the cut leaves on board of their ships for burns and cuts. After the Atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War 2, a South African aloe was used on large scale for the healing of burns and wounds by the Japanese.

One of the most wonderful things about the Aloe Ferox aloe, is that it is harvested directly in the wild in its natural state. Thus the plant has not been exposed to pesticides, fertilizers or any chemical additives and is absolutely pure and organically grown. There is more than enough of this renewable resource to ensure that it does not need to be cultivated. It is a robust aloe that grows to over 2m high. Seven to eight leaves are harvested from the bottom of each plant each year without damaging the growth tip of this spiky, succulent plant. This harvesting method has the advantage that harvesting can be done in the wild without doing any damage to the plants.

These harvested leaves are then packed in a circle around a plastic-lined hollow in the ground to allow the dark bitter sap to tap naturally from between the green peel and white jelly of the leaf in an age old method. This bitter substance is slowly boiled and reduced, so that it hardens to a crystal when cooled. Traditionally the bitters are used as a laxative, and for their anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities. The rest of the leaf is then taken back to the factory and processed into juice and jelly which is used in a wide variety of creams, lotions, health and beauty products. The affordability of the beauty range, together with the wonderful anti-aging qualities of the aloe have made this a growth industry in South Africa’s Cape Province.

All manufacturing and product development is done on the premises of the factory in Albertinia. Today Aloe Ferox has over 1000 agents worldwide. Modern machinery is used for manufacturing their wide range of high quality, affordable products.

Since starting  19 years ago we used “parabens” as a preservative to give the cosmetic products a shelf life, like almost all other cosmetics.  Several years ago some “greenies” started a campaigne saying negative things about the use of parabens.  We followed the debate for and against parabens and one after the other cosmetic house had to switch over to preservatives other than parabens.  Not that there was any truth in what they said and still say but the seed was sown.  In November last year we also followed and decided to go “preservative free”  and started switching over to SENSIVA PA40.

1.    SENSIVA PA40 is a highly effective multifunctional active ingredient for sensitive skincare products
2.    It has a mild moisturising agent from naturally derived propanediol
3.    It softens and improves general skin feeling
4.    It has an advanced antimicrobial activity
5.    It inhibits growth and multiplication of germs and bacteria on the skin.
6.    It has a faint flowery scent which can mask possible unpleasant sweaty odours.

The SENSIVA PA40 placed our products into another category because the products are now even better than before.   Some people do experience a tingling effect for a short time but no harm is done to the skin like in the case of an allergy.

To discover a new level of health and wellbeing, you need what is undoubtedly the most powerful of all aloes, Aloe Ferox
