History of NATURALOE Costa Rica

History Of NATURALOE Costa Rica

Over 30 years ago, Carrington Laboratories Inc. initiated research to develop a product which had characteristics and benefits similar to those of fresh gel from Aloe vera leaves. With an investment commitment to develop, and to prove this technology, a product that kept the beneficial properties of the Aloe vera was produced. This product originally known as Manapol® was manufactured at Carrington’s plant in Costa Rica. The FDA recognized pharmaceutical grade Manapol® as a “product by process”. This means the product is produced batch to batch with the exact same process. All this know-how and technology was put into practice in the 1990’s with the establishment of an Aloe vera plantation and an onsite manufacturing plant in Liberia, Costa Rica. Carrington produced the drug known as Acemannan Hydrogel, this product was used in their branded wound care products.

Additionally other bioactive raw materials from Aloe vera were developed. The widely-known and highly-regarded NATURMANAN® Aloe Vera Extract Powder has its origins in this manufacturing facility.

In 2009 a group of committed and successful agro-businessmen acquired Carrington Laboratories Inc. Costa Rican assets. Hence, the know-how developed to produce NATURMAN® extracts and other pharmaceutical grade-products from Aloe vera,

Under the ownership of Natural Aloe Costa Rica, the manufacture of pharmaceutical grade Aloe Vera Extracts continues. These are the same widely-known and highly regarded products from Aloe Vera that were successfully developed by Carrington and, based on years of applied research and human clinical trials, carries DSHEA Claims.

Our products do not require and do not contain preservatives. No enzymes or elevated temperatures are used during the process. Instead natural ethanol is used in a proprietary process that removes Anthraquinone, denatures natural enzymes in the gel, destroys any microbial contaminates and removes unwanted low molecular weight salts. Thus no charcoal filtering, diatomite earth or heat is needed or used in the process.




NATURALOE Costa Rica is devoted to provide health and wellness products of the utmost quality, integrity, consistency and value using state-of-the-art technologies in doing so, improving the quality of life of our customers, collaborators, suppliers and communities which we serve in.

The NATURALOE Difference

We manually harvests mature leaves from its farm and expeditiously processes them assuring that only fresh, hand- washed and manual process is used, thereby protecting the therapeutic properties of the plant. We are the only company that is able to extract the highest concentration of the active ingredient, Acemannan, from the Aloe plant leaving it in its most natural form.

Costa Rica’s tropical climate and fertile volcanic soils guarantee year-round Aloe Vera production, enabling us to source excellent quality leaves from both its farms as well as from surrounding growers. The best Aloe Vera is grown on Costa Rica’s volcanic soils in equatorial sunlight yielding Aloe Vera plants with higher acemannan contents, a key component related to effectiveness of final product.  These are the exact reasons we carefully selected the volcanic soils of Costa Rica near the equator for our farm and factory location.
