Creating a sustainable world from the core is what makes us tick.

At Glow Naturals, we have chosen the highest quality organic and GMO-Free ingredients paired with sustainable and recyclable packaging to give you the purest skincare line possible.

Glow Naturals was born out of a societal regime, pushing through the muck of mass produced skincare products that are not only bad for your skin, but bad for your overall health and also the well-being of our planet.
My name is Chayilah Oldham. I have spent the last 10 years on a roller-coaster journey down the path of healing and of a healthy lifestyle, gleaning information as quickly as it can come. I choose to dig deep inside every label, every ingredient, questioning it’s availability in my life.
Working in the “natural” skincare industry I was shocked at the ingredients people were o.k. with putting on their skin. I wanted a product that had as few quality ingredients as possible, no animals or animal cruelty involved, and something that would actually work. No distributor fit my bill.
I was raised in the back country of  Missouri. Surrounded by beautiful wildlife and the freedom to roam about; taking afternoon dips in the creek, drying out on the limestone flat rocks close beside. Playing with our horses, my dog and a few chickens, created a great appreciation for the purity of nature. I have taken this appreciation across all aspects of my life, comparing and contrasting. What doesn’t fit in nature, doesn’t need to fit into my life. This is why simple and effective ingredients have been chosen.
Now for the method to the madness. Using soap on the skin strips vital oils and creates an imbalance of sebum production. Sebum is the oil our body produces that is excreted out the skin as it’s protectant. By using an oil-cleansing method, it allows the old facial oils to be pulled off and replaced with the new cleansing oil paired with healing and restorative essential oils. Now that the body isn’t in shock due to the oils being stripped, the sebum production will regulate. This method is beneficial to both oily as well as dry skin types. We have paired a silky oil with the cleansing, restorative and healing properties of  Helichrysum, Lemongrass, Roman Chamomile and Rose Geranium essential oils. Every product is a proprietary blend as to benefit not only the appearance of the skin, but used as aromatherapy to create a serene sense of  pleasure with every wash 🙂 .

Glow

I have created this skincare line with the hope of spreading awareness about how important sustainability is to our future generations. So they can thrive in a world of utmost purity.
Let us come together and create a clean and peaceful world.

 

The labels printed for Glow Naturals are made from plants, primarily corn grown in the mid-west, manufactured in the USA and European Certified Compostable.  If you’d like to see these or other types of compostable stickers check out our sister site:  CompostableSticker.com

 

 

The Center for Ecoliteracy promotes ecological education and seeks to educate schools to teach and model sustainable practices to our children.  They sought sustainable, temporary use stickers for their state wide school food program. Plan It Green Printing provided labels made from wood cellulose with a plant-starch adhesive.  The labels could be refrigerated or frozen but would dissolve under a steady stream of water.

 

The program is a planning framework for improving school food, supporting sustainable food systems, and teaching and integrating curriculum around food issues.

By addressing school food, we affect public health, academic performance, economics, justice, national security, the environment, and community well-being.

Explore the “Levels of Authority for School Food Systems” from the Center for Ecoliteracy book Smart by Nature to understand where decisions affecting school food are made.
