We create bio-fermented, nutrient-rich, probiotic formulas for gut health, glowing skin and wellbeing. Founded in Bondi in 2009 by Carla Oates. ✨
We’re so obsessed with fermentation that we built our very own state-of-the-art fermentation plant where we work with a team of microbiologists and scientists to ferment our inner beauty formulas. But what exactly is the benefit of having our own manufacturing plant? We’re so glad you asked... —it allows our formulas to reach peak potency —ensures greater quality control at every step —a more sustainable process as it reduces waste

#MICROBIOMEMONDAY Are we more microbial than human? What role do our genetics play in our overall health? Ever hear people say: "I inherited my thin hair from my Dad" or "My Mum had bad PMS symptoms and I do too"? We have 150x more microbial genes that human genes. So while our inherited genetics do play a significant role, our ability to influence them is even greater. By looking after our microbes and feeding them the right nutrients, herbs and probiotics we can unlock our health potential. 💥 📷 Microbes by @under.the.scope

Did you know, looking at your phone or being around bright lights in the evening can impact the circadian rhythm and cause melatonin (the sleep hormone) to decrease? Natural melatonin secretion starts at 9pm, so use this time as a guide to put away devices and dim the lights to help keep your natural body clock regulated. Still struggling to wind down? Take two capsules of our SUPERGENES™ Sleep Support capsules 30 minutes before bed to relieve restless nights. Please note: The Beauty Chef SUPERGENES™ are listed medicines. ALWAYS READ THE LABEL AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE.
