Albertinia is a quaint little town in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Albertinia lies at the foot of the magnificent Langeberg Mountain range, and is known as the home of the Aloe.

The indigenous Aloe Ferox, or Cape Aloe, grows wild here and the leaves are collected and drained for its bitter-tasting sap used in the health and skin care industries. Albertinia is probably best known for the two Aloe factories: Aloe Ferox and Alcare Aloe.
Aloe Ferox gel and products are a major export product of this area. The sap of the Aloe Ferox plant is an important ingredient of several medicinal products, many of which are also manufactured here in Albertinia. Agriculture still plays a major role here with the cultivation of grain (wheat and oats), dairy farming, sheep and cattle farming.
