Once a year, between January and April, our aloe vera barbadensis ‘Miller’ plants produce vibrant yellow flowers at our Santaverde Finca in Andalusia. Each of the lanceolate perennial plants grow numerous small calyxes containing precious nectar. As soon as they are ripe, the flowers are carefully harvested by hand, sorted and pressed to produce an antioxidative elixir in the Santeverde Laboratorio, surrounded by aloe vera fields. Carefully harvesting and processing the flowers ourselves by hand is the only way to guarantee that the aloe vera flowers retain all of their precious active compounds.
Aloe Vera flower nectar is the leading active ingredient in our multi-award winning anti-ageing line age protect.
