Fuerteventura has several natural treasures. One of them is considered among the best of the world: Aloe Vera, a plant with many health benefits. On the island’s arid and semiarid soils, Aloe Vera finds the perfect conditions for its growth, and the volcanic environment Fuerteventura is so rich in offers the ideal habitat for this plant to thrive and develop all its properties.
Beneath the shadow of Gairía volcano, in an inland area of Fuerteventura known as the Monumento Natural Caldera de Gairía, stands ANTICUA, the most important organic Aloe Vera farm of the island, with more than 25 years of history, and one of the biggest organic Aloe Vera plantations in Europe.
ANTICUA makes high quality Aloe Vera natural cosmetic, is eco-friendly and takes special care of our skin and health. For these reasons, we can easily say that ANTICUA is our Aloe Vera reference brand in Fuerteventura and the Canary Islands.
ALOE VERA AND ALOE HONEY from the Canary Islands
Moreover, promoting their environmental awareness and interest for innovation, at Anticua they developed a pioneering project: they saved the islands’ native breed of honeybee, the Canarian Black Bee, and now they boast more than 60 honeycombs around their plantations. These bees collect nectar from Aloe Vera flowers and make this gold-like honey, used as an ingredient in many of ANTICUA’s products.
ANTICUA uses the organic Aloe Vera from its plantations in the making of its products and combines it with different active principles and natural ingredients, offering a range of exceptional skin care products.
