Our History

The story of Prosit started in 1999. Gert Schoonbee Sr., one of the original founders of Prosit, had been in the Aloe ferox industry since the late 1960’s and was well aware of the multiple health benefits that Aloe possesses.

Aloe on its own, however, is limited to certain types of benefits and the idea formed to develop a herbal product that would combine the excellent properties of Aloe ferox with other herbs to obtain a product with multiple health benefits. And so, Prosit was born.

In 2002 the company, operating under the name African Cures cc, was bought out by Gert Schoonbee and has since been owned and run solely by the Schoonbee family.

As the retail footprint expanded to pharmaceutical groups, the company obtained ISO 22000 certification, followed by Halaal and Shuddha certification for selected products.  

Since late 2017, the company is manufacturing and supplying its own bottles for the Prosit liquid ranges. The liquid range is manufactured and packed at its facility in Port Elizabeth.

The Aloe that is used in the product is harvested on the family’s own farm and surrounding farms in the Karoo of the Eastern Cape. Click here to learn more about Prosit.
