We get this question frequently and it is something we pride ourselves on.
These products are grown on our owned and operated farms in southern China, where we have been operating for over twenty years. Our farms are certified USDA, EU, and China organic by ECOCERT. We were one of the first farms in all of China to be certified organic by ECOCERT. Our farms are one of a very select few in all of China that has also been designated as a Certified Eco-Origin Products due to the environmentally sustainable methods we use on our farms. Our farms are actually frequented by nearly 250,000 visitors annually and held up as an example of Sino-American cooperation and the proper way to integrate sustainable operations into the community in which we operate.
A combination of unique geography, volcanic soils, and sustainable agriculture lead to aloe with some of the highest concentrations of Acemannan, aloe’s most studied active compound, in the world. Furthermore, our factory where we process and package our aloe drinks and skin care is located within 5 minutes of our farms, which allows us to process all our aloe and turn it into finished products within 12 Hours of Harvest without the use of any harsh chemicals, high temperature treatment or charcoal filtering, which would diminish the natural biological activity found in aloe. This process has been patented and is unique to AloeCure and ALODERMA products. Our factory has also been ISO and GMP certified.
Contrary to most people's understanding, China is actually the primary source of most skin care ingredients amd much more common than most U.S. consumers realize. Most skin care companies have zero connection to where the ingredients that go in their product are sourced and instead rely on a commoditized ingredient market that provides little to no visibility into where the actual ingredients come from.
We are extremely proud of the fact that we are vertically integrated and full line of site visibility into where our products come from and believe that we should provide that same level of visibility to our customers.
