Ask Carla // What’s the difference between Glow and Cleanse?

Q: I’ve just started using The Beauty Chef CLEANSE, can you tell me what the difference is between CLEANSE and GLOW? How do the ingredients differ?

CLEANSE is great for when you are feeling a little toxic, your skin is congested or you feel like your system needs a good cleanse. An alkalizing greens blend, containing bio-fermented fruits, vegetables, seeds, roots, algae, grasses, liver-purifying herbs as well as digestive enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics, CLEANSE is designed to support digestive balance and therefore improve detoxification.

If your skin is congested, I would recommend you start with this product and ideally follow the 14-day Cleanse Program that comes complimentary with the purchase of Cleanse.

You can also enjoy CLEANSE daily by mixing 7g with either filtered water, coconut water, or blended into your favourite smoothie or a sweet treat.

GLOW is an excellent all-around gut and skin boosting formula that we recommend as your ongoing daily essential gut and skin support and maintenance formula. GLOW is designed to support gut health, collagen synthesis and beautiful skin, hair and nails from the inside out. In a clinical trial, women observed GLOW enhanced their skin luminosity, clarity, hydration and texture.
