Our Story

Founded in 1890, by Cornelis Eman, Aruba Aloe Balm N.V. is the oldest Aloe Company in the world and one of the first companies to formulate and manufacture aloe-based Skin, Hair & Sun Care products and growing the Aloes at the cosmetic production plant.

We pride ourselves on creating products with a plant that is so prominent in our island’s culture and heritage. Not to mention so unique in its countless benefits. Aruba’s Code of Arms even features an aloe plant in one of its quadrants-nicknamed ‘Island of Aloes’ in the 1920s. Aloe Vera marked Aruba’s first source of welfare and the quality of the Aruban Aloes have been the best in the World for more than 150 years already.

Aruba’s desert-like environment intensifies the aloe plant’s natural healing qualities and produces the earth’s most potent Aloe Vera Gel.

We hand cut the leaf within hours of harvest to protect its rich and powerful nutrients. Our Aloe Vera Gel will help nurture and improve the overall health and well-being of your skin.

Aruba Aloe Balm N.V. opened up its first retail location in 2000; the shop is on the premises of Aruba Aloe's vast aloe fields in Hato, Aruba. Our collection of stores has now grown to 16 stores throughout Aruba.

You can also order our products online from the USA, Canada, Puerto Rico and Europe.
