As the pioneers of the inner beauty industry, The Beauty Chef is built on the philosophy that ‘beauty begins in the belly®’.
Bio-fermented wholefood nutrition for gut health and glowing skin.
Carla Oates discovered that beautiful, glowing skin begins with a healthy gut after healing her family's skin issues with a gut-healing, wholefoods diet.
Carla spent the first 10 years of her working life as a fashion stylist before turning her attention to beauty writing. But the allure quickly wore off as she became alarmed by the synthetic substances and toxins contained in many commercial beauty products. When her daughter began to experience similar skin issues to the eczema and allergies, she herself had experienced as a child, Carla put her family on a gut-healing protocol that included probiotic-rich, lacto-fermented wholefoods. Very quickly Carla noticed a profound difference in her daughter’s skin, as well as the improved wellbeing of the whole family.
When friends and family began asking why her skin looked so ‘glowy’, Carla realized the power of the gut-skin connection and the importance of beauty from the inside out. She began experimenting with lacto-fermenting skin-loving superfoods in her Bondi kitchen and that’s how GLOW—The Beauty Chef’s first inner beauty powder—was created.
The Beauty Chef now has a range of bio-fermented, probiotic-rich wholefood supplements and organic topical skincare products. Carla works on her unique formulas with a team of leading microbiologists, naturopaths and nutritionists, employing cutting-edge research to develop products that support gut health and glowing skin—beauty from the inside out.
