To preserve fully the properties of Aloe Vera is necessary to press the pulp in cold. Adding alcohol, perfumes and dyes such properties are lost.

The best climatic conditions for optimum growth of Aloe Vera can be found on Fuerteventura; high temperatures, low rainfall and plenty of light.

To ensure the purity of the final product, the organic cultivation of the plant is an important factor. Crucially, however, that the production is carried out on ecological foundations. In recent years, more and more organically grown plantations of Aloe Vera developed. From this point of view, until now exists only one processing factory in Fuerteventura. This is in Tiscamanita, Tuineje.
