Where I can find physically the product in Tenerife?

You can find Vivita Aloe products in pharmacies and herbalists of the island of Tenerife. You can also find us in our physical store of Aloe Park, our theme park on aloe.

Are there 100% Aloe Vera products?

We are afraid not. Aloe vera, in contact with air, oxidizes very quickly. That's why it requires a preservative. At Vivita Aloe we use preservatives and natural thickeners to avoid, as far as possible, this oxidation. We recommend you always consult the list of ingredients (INCI), since their components must appear in order of content. Check that the products you are going to buy have Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice in the first positions. This is the variety of aloe vera that has greater properties in cosmetics.
