Atlantia

Raw materials of excellent quality

To make sure that our products are of maximum quality, we take care of the whole process from the initial phases:

Cultivation

Our first raw ingredient is the Aloe vera cultivated in the Canaries. The climate of the Canaries assures us that the plant grows in an optimal environment and that it contains a high amount of active ingredients and minerals in a natural way.

The Aloe vera used by Atlantia is "organically grown" name awarded by the C.R.A.E. (Regulatory Council for Organic Farming). This Aloe vera is one hundred percent organic, not transgenic, and in its cultivation synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides were not used.

Harvest

The leaves are harvested when the plant is of 4 to 5 years. The main reason for this is that it has reached the optimum size so that all substances that the plant contains are of the right quantities.

After careful hand picking, the freshly cut leaves are taken directly to the laboratory to begin the juice extraction.

Extraction and pressing

How is Aloe vera juice obtained?

  1. Harvest and wash the fresh leaves
  2. Cut the thorny side edges of the leaves
  3. Peel the green outer layer that covers the leaf and discard the yellow substance - the aloe juice– that appears between the skin and the gel. It is a substance rich in resins and anthraquinones –aloin and aloe emodin– which has a high laxative effect.

Pulp, filtration and cold settled

Once the aloe vera leaf has been peeled, the following step consists of extracting the transparent and jellylike pulp, also knows as fillet. These fillets are crushed and ground to obtain a whitish jellylike mass which is then filtered to remove impurities and unwanted elements. The filtering converts the jellylike mass into a liquid or Aloe vera juice.

The last step is to store the Aloe vera juice in refrigerated stainless steel tanks to ensure the maintenance of all its properties.

Product development

To make our products Atlantia uses pure cold settled Aloe vera juice. Our juice is stored cold in steel tanks, and from when the juice is made very little time passes until it is packaged. Thus we are preserving all properties and freshness in the final product.

Under no circumstances are concentrated or powdered aloe used to make the products, since the processes the gel is subjected to, to obtain such concentrations and lyophilisations, they eliminate much of the active ingredients naturally present in the plant. Many of the products you find on the market use this type of concentrated or dried aloe powder (lyophilised reconstituted aloe).

Our products are made directly with pure aloe pulp and our manufacturing processes make the aloe maintain their biological characteristics.

Atlantia products contain natural ingredients:

  • FREE of Parabens. These chemicals are often used as preservatives in multiple products. Atlantia does NOT use these components in any of its products.
  • FREE of added water. We use fresh Aloe vera pulp, to which we have not added water, only the already naturally present in the plant. In no case is aloe powder or concentrate used.

  • We have designed our containers so that they are easy to use and you can easily get the amount of product that you would like to apply or directly consume.
  • On the labeling we have opted for simplicity, to provide clear information on the product properties, how to use and how to preserve it.
  • The materials of most containers can be recycled. Please, when you finish using the product, properly deposit containers so they can be recycled.
