COMMUNITY TRADE ORGANIC ALOE VERA FROM MEXICO
Sourced from Mexi Aloe (Campeche farmers) since 2015
The expert farmers we work with in Mexico really know their stuff and with their help we’re able to source high quality aloe while giving back to the environment. Our soothing aloe vera, one of nature’s most resilient plants, is from Campeche in the Yucatan peninsula of south-east Mexico. The aloe leaves are hand-harvested and hand-filleted within 6 hours to help preserve maximum freshness, ensuring the highest-quality aloe in our gentle formulas.
As well as being cruelty-free and vegetarian, many of our fragrances are made with Community Trade alcohol, created from ripe organic sugarcane grown on regenerated land in São Paulo, south east Brazil.
We work with the Campeche farmers to help develop and support indigenous female farmers living on the edge of the rainforest, who could otherwise face discrimination and limited work opportunities.
Our aloe plants are cultivated on organically-certified land, close to three precious rainforest biosphere reserves. Earning a sustainable income from aloe farming reduces the need for the community to chop down trees and compromise local resources.
