Aruba Aloe Celebrates 125 Years

·
Written by Jessica Posner

In 1890, Cornelis Eman embarked on a journey that would have lasting effects on the island both economically and culturally. Although the Dutch introduced the Aloe vera plant to the island in the 1840s, it was Cornelis’s initiative to cultivate Aloe vera commercially that put Aruba on the map as “The Island of Aloes.”  Today Aruba Aloe now celebrates its 125 year anniversary and has 17 stores in Aruba, one in Indianapolis, one in Amsterdam, a webshop in the U.S. and Europe that generate impressive Internet sales, and more than 80 employees locally. Read more about the history of Aruba Aloe and the significant role it has played on the culture and economy of Aruba.
