About

Organic Aloe 247 Juice and Gel are part of a range of products by Totally Wild, also encompassing a selection of Totally Wild branded, Super Aloe Juice Blends.

Totally Wild UK was founded in March 2016, to bring Aloe Ferox to the UK, from Totally Wild (Pty) Ltd based in Cape Town, who specialises in the development and marketing of high-end products that use South Africa’s indigenous and endemic Aloe Ferox as the key ingredient – known for its excellent immune boosting capabilities and proven healing properties.

 

Made using South Africa’s miracle plant – ALOE FEROX, Organic Aloe 247 is available in two, pure and natural products that soothe and heal inside and out, to relieve and refresh around the clock:

Organic Aloe 247 Gel 100ml

Organic Aloe 247 Juice 500ml

 

Our mission

Our mission is to share the benefits of Aloe Ferox with as many people as possible, using South African expertise and our passion for this natural wonder.

 

Our philosophy

Nature is a wonderful thing.

In the wilds of South Africa in the Little Karoo region, home to our Super Aloe, the Aloe Ferox plant protects itself from herbivores with its ferocious thorns. This is a wonderful thing because it’s such a nutrient-rich superfood. Like centuries of indigenous tribes before us and still today, we respect this natural wonder. That’s why we take care to retain each plant’s unique goodness, and because it grows nowhere else in the world, to harvest it sustainably. 

How it all started

Whilst on holiday in South Africa in June 2015 in a Cape Town shopping centre, Tim happened upon a leaflet about the country’s local Aloe plant, ALOE FEROX. He was so enthused by the so-called miracle plant that he visited a local Aloe Ferox business, only to become even more excited by what he found out. With 50 years business experience to draw upon, he recognised an extraordinary opportunity to bring the benefits of this SUPER ALOE to the UK and to introduce more people to a wonderful alternative. He returned to South Africa in November 2015 to develop a better understanding of raw Aloe Ferox harvesting and the amazing products it makes.

Tim’s ambition became reality when he was awarded exclusive rights to import from Totally Wild (Pty) Ltd, based in Muizenberg, Cape Town. Established in 2007, its founders Barbara and Nic have many years of expertise in the Aloe industry and have created an exceptional range of Aloe Ferox products, manufactured in South Africa.

Aloe Ferox in the UK

Tim established Totally Wild UK in March 2016 and has come a long way since attending NOPE (Natural Organic Products Europe) in April 2016, joined by Nic and Barbara. At the show, Totally Wild’s products attracted the attention of Deborah Meaden of the BBC’s Dragon’s Den amongst many others. Indeed, it was at NOPE that Waitrose agreed to list Organic Aloe 247 Juice arriving on-shelf in October 2016.

With much work to be done, Tim has since enlisted John and Alison to help grow the business. The Totally Wild team has one thing in common – an absolute belief in the super natural goodness of Organic Aloe 247 as both a remedy and defence, and a commitment to making the benefits of Aloe Ferox accessible to as many people as possible.

Meet the Totally Wild team

Tim Southcombe – Director

I began my working life in the mid 70’s in the family business – Southcombe Brothers, Somerset’s leading glove manufacturer. I worked my way up, starting in the loading bay to become Managing Director in 1992. Moving into Property Development after leaving glove manufacturing, still ongoing today. But my discovery of Aloe Ferox mid-2015 set me on a new course, establishing Totally Wild UK to bring the natural wonder of South Africa and the healing power of Aloe Ferox to the UK.

Alison Hutchings – Social Media

I’m a people person and have always enjoyed working ‘front of house’, in estate agency, recruitment, social housing and the civil service, as well as taking on a voluntary role to work at St. Margaret’s Hospice local charity shop. Returning from a career break to raise my three young children, I am delighted to be part of Totally Wild UK, and to manage the social side of the business. I feel privileged to chat to our customers and share our news to spread the word about the wellbeing benefits of Organic Aloe 24/7.

John Southcombe – General Manager

Since leaving school, I’ve turned my hand to many opportunities from university to estate agency, labouring to ladies’ fashion (in the family business). During my time at Retail Therapy, I enjoyed a variety of roles managing on-line sales, the website and fashion shows, as well as rolling up my sleeves to fit out shops. It is fair to say I am versatile, and that’s why I am so excited about Totally Wild UK. No day is ever the same, and the opportunities for Organic Aloe 24/7 as a natural cure-all seem endless.
