Aloe instead of water: Unique formulation with the full active power of Aloe vera

Close-up of an Aloe vera plant.

Most skin care products consist mostly of water. This is why "aqua" is found first on the ingredient list (INCI) of most creams and serums. Water is important for the fluid balance of our body but has little significant effect on the skin. Therefore we replace this main ingredient with pure Aloe vera juice from our own certified organic cultivation in Andalusia.

The effect of Aloe vera

With over 200 valuable ingredients, aloe vera has an impressive range of effects. Our goal is to bring out its full effectiveness in our cosmetics and thus achieve the best possible effect for skin care.

Our secret is the Aloe instead of water principle. This means that in our product developments we rely on a special cosmetic formulation based on pure organic Aloe vera juice (Aloe Barbadensis Miller) from our finca in Andalusia.

You can find out more about the effects of pure Aloe vera juice in the encyclopaedia of active ingredients on our website.

Unique formulation and effect on the skin

Pure Aloe vera juice from the inside of the leaf, the Aloe vera gel, is a powerful complex of active ingredients for the skin and the entire organism. It supports the natural process of constant regeneration and is a great reservoir of nutrients for young skin cells.

That is why we replace the main ingredient in cosmetic formulations, water, with our field-fresh, pure Aloe vera juice, supplemented by valuable plant oils and extracts. In this way, our natural cosmetic formulation achieves a uniquely diverse effect on the skin: regenerating, providing and binding moisture, soothing and protecting – aligned to the different skin needs.

Aloe vera juice is our first priority

Normally, a cosmetic product consists mainly of water (INCI: Aqua) - to be read first in the list of ingredients on the product packaging. In all Santaverde products, the self-produced Aloe vera juice (INCI: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice) forms the largest ingredient share and leads the INCIs.

Unlike water, the pure juice contains all the ingredients of fresh Aloe vera leaves, of which specific polysaccharides (aloverose), essential amino acids, enzymes, mineral salts, vitamins and antioxidants are particularly valuable and effective for skin care.

In the mild climate at the southernmost point of Europe, we have been cultivating the Aloe vera plant organically for more than 30 years and harvest leaves with an average minimum content of 1,200 mg Aloverose per litre. The reason for this lies in the consistently organic cultivation, the sustainable soil care, and the strict selection of harvestable leaf fillets during processing. We monitor the purity and quality of our products from the cultivation of the plants to the finished skin care.

Pure plant oils and extracts, adapted to individual skin needs, complement the effect of Aloe vera and complete the Santaverde formulas. In this way, we create intelligent active ingredient compositions and a unique effect for the health and beauty of the skin.

We do not use any mineral oil derivatives, synthetic dyes, fragrances, preservatives, or anything that could damage the skin.
