It’s here! SANTAVERDE’s best-selling Age Protect range lands in the UK this week
Santaverde’s best-selling Age Protect range lands in the UK this week at Santaverde.co.uk and if this clean, green German brand is new to you, there are a lot of reasons we think you’ll love it.
Water-free and drenched with plant juices, Santaverde harnesses the healing, hydrating power of aloe
Here are 5 – for starters:
– Santaverde products are 100% water-free (which means no need for preservatives to combat water-borne bacteria/extend shelf life), and because they use pure aloe juice and natural extracts the products are more concentrated and 100% naturally active
– The brand is multi-certified organic and cruelty-free by Natrue, Leaping Bunny, EU Bio and others.
– Santaverde’s star ingredients are aloe vera juice and aloe blossom nectar (among other naturals such as avocado, thistle and apricot). If you’re thinking “aloe blossoms?” and getting a blank picture, they’re those red and yellow upward-pointing succulent “flowers” you sometimes see growing next to the thick green aloe stalks.
– Considering Santaverde’s products contain such a high concentration of powerful natural plant and fruit actives, the Age Protect range is nicely priced.
The Santaverde difference:
Water-based or synthetic skincare v. Santaverde’s pure aloe juice/plant/natural actives formulas
– All of Santaverde’s aloe is hand-harvested at founder Sabine Beer and her husband’s finca in Estepona in southern Spain while the organic aloe blossom is processed at Santaverde’s own laboratory to produce a powerful antioxidant elixir to strengthen skin’s own defences and help stave off free radical damage.
Their aloe is up to 10 times more “naturally active” than most, if not all, other aloe used in skincare, on the market, meticulously extracted and harvested on-site.
25 years ago, after finally finding the answer for her over-reactive skin, Sabine Beer founded her own aloe vera-based beauty range Santaverde
The Santaverde Story
25 years old this year, the Santaverde story has simple roots. Sabine’s neighbour in Spain gave her a fresh aloe “leaf” to soothe her red, inflamed skin and while nothing else had helped, the aloe was like a calming tonic. Impressed and surprised by how well the cooling, liquidy gel oozing from the aloe leaf had worked, Sabine searched for aloe juice skincare but found none, so she invested in creating her own.
WATCH: THE SANTAVERDE DIFFERENCE. Founder Sabine Beer explains why the range is so “active” and why the range contains pure plant juices instead of water.
WATCH: We’ve never seen aloe being harvested for beauty before – fascinating and worth a watch! Click here to see the video on YouTube: Harvesting Aloe Vera at the Santaverde finca in southern Spain

AGE PROTECT MOISTURISER £46/30ml (WIN ONE! – see below)
WHAT: This fresh, brightening, regenerating, velvety anti-ageing facial moisturiser strengthens skin’s structure and helps even out hyper-pigmentation. Pure aloe vera juice, aloe vera blossoms (the red and yellow aloe “flowers” of the aloe plant), hyaluronic acid and root extracts make this a moisturiser that all skin types will be happy with but sensitive or redness-prone skin will really love this gentle, calming product.
Pure aloe vera juice and hyaluronic acid intensively hydrate and bind moisture, leaving the skin looking more “dewy” and plumped up. Antioxidant-rich aloe vera blossoms and cell-protective oils from evening primrose and apricot provide protection against the harmful effects of free radicals – omega-rich evening primrose is one of the best “skin food oils” you can feed your skin with, particularly good for minor irritations or tendency towards dryness.
