We work in conjunction with Mexican farmers in accordance with the OperAequa fair trade charter to obtain the raw material.
Certifying body Bioagricoop performs regular checks on the ground to ensure that the relevant requirements are being adhered to.
Our hand-picked aloe vera is grown in Mexico in accordance with organic farming standards to protect all of the active components of the plant, ensure the absence of heavy metals and pesticides and monitor water quality.
We ensure that the aloe vera extract we produce onsite maintains its original properties by not heating it. It is processed and stored at a controlled temperature of 4°C.
We do not use powders or concentrates for our products because we do not believe that adding water to a powder allows the actual gel of the original plant to reconstitute properly.
That said, organic food and cosmetics charters do not distinguish between reconstituted aloe and actual juice taken directly from the plant, meaning that it is simply impossible for the consumer to know the truth!
For the purposes of clarity, our products bear the Native Aloe logo.
The sulfates contained in conventional cleansing bases can be very irritating to the skin, eyes and hair, so we have chosen not to use them in our products.
The Cosmébio charter requires cosmetic products to be at least 10% organic whilst the Cosmos Organic charter requires them to be at least 20% organic. We don’t believe this percentage is anywhere near high enough and therefore ensure that our products are between 4 and 9.8 times more organic!
We always seek to ensure that our products resemble the plant’s natural state as closely as possible.
