The Beauty Chef


We create bio-fermented, nutrient-rich, probiotic formulas for gut health, glowing skin and wellbeing. Founded in Bondi in 2009 by Carla Oates. ✨
When I started experimenting with lacto-fermented foods in my kitchen back in 2007, I never thought it would lead to the creation of a whole new category in beauty: inner beauty. I first developed GLOW® in 2009 merely as a passion project to help support myself and my family’s skin concerns. But when my friends started asking what I had been doing for my skin, they also wanted in on this strange probiotic powder. Educating consumers about a whole new concept - that beauty begins in the belly, was challenging, but I was passionate and determined to spread the word 😊 I am very proud that since then we’ve helped over one million people improve their skin health, gut health and overall wellbeing with just one teaspoon a day... ✨ Carla x

Born in the '80s or early '90s? It might be time to start taking collagen. From as early as our 20s, the levels of collagen in our skin start to slowly wind down. Without this structural protein to act as scaffolding, skin loses its plumpness and bounce, leading to fine lines. Explore our range of collagen at the link in bio.
