Where to find the best Aloe-based products

The ecosystem in which the Aloe plants grow is essential to exploit all the active ingredients in an optimal way, in full respect of nature and the environment. Precisely for this reason the AloeVonderweid group, direct growers of Aloe Arborescens and Aloe Vera since 1997, has chosen to grow these plants under the Sicilian sun only with organic farming methods.


AloeVonderweid , a company founded by Maurizio de Vonderweid who was the first to start an experimental cultivation of Aloe Arborescens on the Trieste coast, is involved in making completely natural products based on Aloe.

The natural remedies offered through the e-commerce portal , in fact, are created with carefully selected 100% organic ingredients. Once the plants have reached maturity, the leaves are harvested manually, trying to use the freshest possible raw material.

Just to give a few examples, AloeVonderweid has been producing the Aloe Arborescens preparation in the classic recipe of the Friar for more than 20 years, better known as Father Zago’s Recipe.
