Company History

Aloecorp founder and Chairman, the late honorable Yun-Ho Lee, was the first to introduce the amazing aloe plant to Korea after experiencing its life-changing benefits in helping to fight his own chronic illness. To further his research on the effects of aloe use, Mr. Lee developed 3 acres of greenhouses in the early 1970s. His research proved to almost single-handedly change the population’s perception and appreciation of high‐quality, all‐natural health supplements. In fact, Mr. Lee quickly became Korea’s recognized and celebrated pioneer in the cultivation and growth of aloe. With unprecedented focus and investment in the research and development of natural medicines, Mr. Lee stood solidly at the helm of the company that soon became Aloecorp.

Aloecorp continued to experience a sustained increase in demand for high‐quality, meticulously grown aloe which eventually far outgrew the production capacities of Mr. Lee’s domestic farms. To meet this growth, the original Aloecorp farms in Korea were soon complemented by an impressive 520 acres of prime aloe-producing farmland in the verdant Rio Grande Valley of Texas, USA. With rich, sedimentary soil that produces ultra high quality and large, succulent and abundant aloe leaves, this exclusive farmland — Hilltop Gardens — is where Aloecorp has revolutionized the commercial production of aloe and quite literally changed the entire industry. As today’s undisputed leader in bioactive Aloe vera ingredients since 1988, Aloecorp’s extensive and increasing number of farms in Texas, Mexico and China continue to painstakingly grow each premium Aloe vera plant without the use of pesticides, then carefully harvest and gently process the leaves into world-class aloe ingredients and end products.
