Our botanical ingredients are just as effective as their synthetic alternatives, but are better tolerated by the skin and less likely to cause irritation. Botanical active ingredients are not developed in the lab, but are extracted directly from the plant and contain many other valuable components such as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

We use pure botanical mat bean extract (Vigna Aconitifolia) as a retinol substitute for example, which studies have shown to have an equivalent effect to retinol, but does not sensitise the skin. The Glow is therefore also ideal for those with sensitive and inflammatory skin conditions.


All our plant oils, plant butters, essential oils and hydrolates come from controlled organic cultivation. This makes The Glow an absolute exception on the market, which we are very proud of. We even go above and beyond organic cultivation: we use ingredients that are wild harveted. Wild plants come from uncultivated land that contains all the nutrients of uncultivated, fertile soil. The plants are more resilient, they are not cultivated but adapt naturally to their conditions.

Our cupuacu butter from the Brazilian Amazon and prickly pear seed oil from a Moroccan co-operative are grown in the wild. This makes them the 'star ingredients' in Wonderbalm and Master Elixir.


Our raw materials are left in their natural state so that they can develop their full effect. All oils and plant butters are gently cold-pressed to preserve their nourishing, caring and cell-regenerating properties, which would be lost through heating/refining or deodorisation. This ensures that our ingredients are maximised and none of their natural power is lost through processing.
