The effect of Aloe vera blossom nectar

Powerful antioxidants make the aloe vera blossom nectar an ideal anti-aging active substance. So far unique in cosmetics, we use this power of Aloe vera blossoms.

The valuable blossom nectar of the Aloe vera blossom protects the skin from oxidative stress with its antioxidant effect. Oxidative stress is caused by free radicals and is considered to be a key skin-ageing factor. The polyphenols in the blossom nectar are a group of powerful antioxidants that can neutralise free radicals and thus strengthen the skin's cell protection naturally and effectively.

Extraction of blossom nectar

At our Finca in Estepona, in southern Spain, our Aloe vera plants are grown under controlled organic conditions. Once a year, from January to April, the Aloe Barbadensis Miller produces a bright yellow flower. Each flower has several sepals which contain the antioxidant nectar.

The sensitive sepals are harvested by hand and are then taken directly to our modern production laboratory in the middle of the Aloe Vera fields. By processing so quickly, we ensure that the active ingredients of the Aloe vera blossom are preserved. In the production laboratory, the sepals are sorted, washed and pressed into an antioxidant elixir on site.

The Aloe vera blossom nectar is the key ingredient in our anti-ageing range "age protect", which has received multiple awards.
