It all started 20 years ago on an Aloe Vera field in Curacao. Curaloe was born out of an ancient island remedy called "Sentebibu" or "hundred lives" in Papiamentu and is the source to youth and healthy life.
Curacaoans eat the plant and apply it topically to cure burns and other skin irritations, which may explain why the island has so many centenarians.
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."
Brought home by tourists all over the world, Curaloe is now available in 55 countries and growing.
With the growing desire for Organic Aloe Vera products, Curaloe South Africa was born, a modern Aloe Vera farm that can produce skincare products according to the Curaloe standards but with the Organic Certification.
With everything we do, we think back to that ancient "Sentebibu" island remedy and create products solely with the highest possible percentage of Aloe Vera to keep skin happy and body's healthy!
