Giving Back and Advocating for Change
Desert Harvest started in 1993 to help a family member with her chronic bladder pain condition. Our mission has been to educate about the scientifically studied benefits of Super-Strength Aloe Vera to help relieve the symptoms associated with Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome.
We work with organizations and healthcare professionals to help educate and advocate for all those with IC/PBS worldwide. We offer our Compassionate Assistance Program (CAP) for qualified individuals to receive free or discounted Super-Strength Aloe Vera Capsules and Reléveum®.
In addition, Desert Harvest works with the following non-profit organizations who align with our mission. Proceeds from your purchase of Desert Harvest products helps support the important work of these organizations.
Dear Desert Harvest -
Thank you for the many sample packets of Aloe Vera Gele, Releveum, and bottles of Aloe Vera Capsules that you donated to our mission. From my experience, your pain relieving and healing aloe gels are the best on the market for severe vaginal atrophy, irritation, burning and pain! As I have discovered in my practice over the past many years, Desert Harvest products are not only amazing for the vagina, but your Aloe Vera capsules are my go to “over the counter tool” for bladder lining healing! I have found that when a Painful Bladder Syndrome patient is doing well, they tend to want to switch to a cheaper substitute product. It always fails! They always return to Desert Harvest products! That is why I requested samples from you. Very glad I did because the most amazing surprise in Africa was needed to help so many boys and men with bladder pain issues! I suspect there will be even a greater need for the aloe gels and capsules when I return to Africa to focus on treating victims of Female Genital Mutilation. These women suffer greatly with vaginal pain and most likely bladder issues. Thanks again for your generosity in serving the African people!

The Pelvic Whisperer
Desert Harvest has partnered with the Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) for the past 25 years. The Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) advocates for interstitial cystitis (IC) research dedicated to the discovery of a cure and better treatments, raises awareness, and serves as a central hub for healthcare providers, researchers and millions of patients who suffer with constant urinary urgency and frequency and extreme bladder pain called IC. The ICA was established in 1984 to put a face on all those affected by IC and remains today as the only non-profit health association solely dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare and lives of people living with IC. To fulfill its mission, the ICA pursues three core functions: advocacy, research, and education. https://www.ichelp.org
