The Farm at Aloecorp de Mexico Gonzales, Mexico (120 km from Tampico) Finishing & Packaging Facility Lyford, Texas ü Aloecorp is a Vertically Integrated Aloe vera supplier Processing • Processing capacity tripled since 2000 • Progressive Research Investment • Patented processing methods • Product & Process Innovation An ECONET Family Company
Time, Temperature & Sanitation üTTS Quality Control takes into account all aspects of growing, harvesting and processing Aloe vera raw materials to retain biological activity in the finished product. Time • Minimal time from Harvest to Stabilization • Minimal time of Processing • Minimal Heat exposure Temperature • HTST pasteurization followed by cold storage Sanitation • Quality Assurance and Control on production floor • In-process QC at every step
The Patented MAP Process ü Bioactivity Guided Process Development Unigen Pharmaceuticals investigated the biological role of polysaccharide molecular weight in order to develop a processing method that would retain and enhance the biological activity of native aloe… resulting in the patented processing method now used exclusively by Aloecorp. U. S. Patent 6, 436, 679 Our Patented Aloe vera Processing • Activates macrophage • Restores the UVB suppressed immune system • Stimulates fibroblast proliferation Publication Modified Aloe barbadensis Polysaccharide with Immunoregulatory Activity.

The Patented MAP Process ü Further studies on MAP bioactivity Abstract conclusion Aloe polysaccharides of 5 – 400 k. Da exhibit • Most potent macrophage activation • Most phagocytic activity • Most potent antitumor activity in vivo G 2 E 1 – Aloe vera crude methanol extract G 2 E 1 D – Protein free MAP* G 2 E 1 DS 1 – Polysaccharide fraction < 5 k. Da G 2 E 1 DS 2 – Polysaccharide fraction 5 k. Da – 400 k. Da (MAP**) G 2 E 1 DS 3 – Polysaccharide fraction > 400 k. Da Publication Identification of Optimal Molecular Size of Modified Aloe Polysaccharides with Maximum Immunomodulatory Activity. Sun-A Im et al. : International Immunopharmacology 5, 2005 * MAP contains <5 k. Da - > 2000 k. Da PS with 3 X increase in max active PS fraction ** 1999 MAP paper identified a specific PS MW max activity of 80 k. Da. 2005 paper did not determine specific MW max.
The Patented MAP Process ü Bioactivity Guided Process Development q It has been noted that diverse results are reported in clinical studies using Aloe vera. This may be explained in part by the observation that researchers commonly do not determine the composition of aloe used in studies and, in particular, the content or molecular weight distribution of acetylated mannan polysaccharides. q Aloecorp is unique in this respect. Researchers using Aloecorp products are provided with extensive analytical characterization of the test material. As a result, consistent results have been published by these researchers. q Most importantly, all Aloecorp products are manufactured by our patented processing method based on the results of our bioactivity guided processing research. The polysaccharide content and molecular weight distribution of every batch of aloe produced by Aloecorp is determined by HPLC size exclusion chromatography

Topical Indications q Calcium and the Skin Calcium plays a critical roll in epidermal cell differentiation, turnover and wound healing. There is some evidence that cell turnover can be up-regulated by increasing calcium availability topically. Calcium has also been shown effective in treating dry skin due to its role in regulating lipid barrier processes. The National Cancer Research Institute has reported that people with low skin calcium experience greater premature aging of the skin and incidence of skin cancer. Aloe contains approximately 7% calcium by dry weight and this content is thought to play a role in the accelerated wound healing properties of aloe, moisturizing effect and anti-carcinogenic effects. For this reason aloe should be a critical component of cosmetic and cosmeceutical applications such as: • Stimulation of post-dermabrasion wound healing J Dermatol Surg Oncol 1990 • OTC exfoliation products (wound healing and moisturizing) • Anti-aging and skin cancer protection
