On July 25th 1997, Curaçao Ecocity Projects NV was incorporated and the company started developing the plantation in December 1999.
The plantation covers an area of 10 acres, 5 of which are used to cultivate the more than 100,000 specimens that are growing at their plantation at this moment.
It takes 2 years for an Aloe Vera plant to mature to the point at which it can be harvested.
The average time span for harvesting is approximately 10 years, during which we will collect 6 to 8 leaves from the bottom of the plant per harvest.
In 2002 we received financial support for the construction of the production plant through Senter, a Dutch governmental institution that subsidizes development projects that involve Dutch companies.
In 2003, the construction was completed and they ran their first trial production sessions.
Since 2004 they have been producing commercially and their annual production level has increased steadily every year.
They use specially designed and patented machines which have been developed especially for them and do not damage the active substances in the Aloe Vera gel.
They can therefore guarantee a constant and excellent quality for every batch they produce.
Initially they released a line of skincare products in cooperation with BioClin, and since 2006 they are developing and producing their own products under the name of CurAloe. their main objective is to offer high-quality products which contain a high concentration of aloe vera and other biologically active and natural ingredients.
