Get Gutsy with Carla: “Why I Supercharged GLOW!”

Category Icon filed under Skin | 2 Min Read

It’s hard to believe that the first-ever iteration of GLOW powder was created in my kitchen in Bondi over 10 years ago… 

And now we have an ever-expanding team of bright and creative minds, a wonderfully loyal community, and a supercharged version of the product that started it all.

And while The Beauty Chef has grown and evolved dramatically over the past few years, our mission remains the same: to help people be the happiest, healthiest version of themselves. Doing this to the best of our ability means providing you with products of unparalleled quality—which is why we continue to innovate, seeking out new technologies, refining our processes, reimagining our formulas, and scouring the globe for the purest ingredients.

GLOW Inner Beauty Essential has always been a product powerful enough to change people’s skin, gut health and overall wellbeing for the better—and we’ve had such amazing feedback from you, our lovely community over the years—but we’ve learned a thing or two in the last decade, which has enabled us to create our most potent and powerful formula yet.

Are you ready to take a closer look?

Our Next-Generation Fermentation Process

Alongside our team of microbiologists, we’ve worked hard to get to know our beneficial bacteria even better and have tailor-made our fermentation process, FloraCulture™, to suit their needs. This has meant adding in more nutrient-rich wholefoods and tweaking GLOW’s base formula, thereby allowing our beneficial bacteria to reach peak concentration. We’re also better able to control everything from the temperature, oxygen and pH of each fermentation and closely monitor this process—even checking on it in the middle of the night—to ensure that we reach optimal bacterial counts. This means that GLOW is now more potent, more bioavailable and contains more probiotics and postbiotics!

Our New And Nourishing Ingredients 

GLOW now contains more antioxidants, polyphenols and phytonutrients to provide comprehensive support to your skin and to nourish your microbiome. Plus, we’ve upped the level of our favourite microalgae, Dunaliella salina, in order to double the formula’s provitamin A content. This is important for the cellular turnover process and supports healthy immune function. You’ll find also extra zinc to support skin integrity and structure, plus more vitamin C for collagen formation.

But perhaps what I’m most excited about is the addition of a complete complex of B vitamins, produced from organic quinoa sprouts. This broad-spectrum complex contains biotin for healthy hair, skin and energy production, as well as niacinamide, which is integral for normal skin function and structure and helps with the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. What’s more, these B vitamins are activated, or ‘biologically active’, meaning they’ve already been converted into a form that the body can use.

Another exciting addition to the new formula is Lactobacillus rhamnosus GUT5Y™, our very own probiotic strain that supports digestive wellbeing and skin health. Lactobacillus rhamnosus is one of the world’s most widely studied species of probiotics and comes with a wealth of research.

While the newest iteration of GLOW is amazing for your complexion, it’s so much more than just a skin supplement. Containing a powerful selection of food-based nutrients, prebioticsprobiotics, postbiotics, fibre, phytonutrients, antioxidants and so much more, GLOW is a true multitasker, designed to elevate your wellbeing, nourish your gut and help you to glow ever brighter.

Whether you’re new to The Beauty Chef community or you’ve been with us for years, we hope that you’ll love the new version of GLOW as much as we do.
