The Pure Aloe Vera Story
At Curaloe, we're inspired by nature's problem solver: Aloe Vera
Following an ancient island remedy called "Sentebibu" or "hundred lives" as the people from Curacao refer to Aloe Vera. The Curacaoans eat the Aloe Vera gel and apply it topically to cure burns and other skin irritations.
Sentebibu inspired us to use the pure Aloe Vera plant as the main ingredient in every Curaloe product. A concept we call "the plant in a bottle."
Our hand harvested aloe Vera from our own Aloe Vera fields is processed to the pure Aloe Vera products in our on-site factory.
Our mission is to keep your skin happy and your body healthy!
