How it Started
I am a Hong Kong native, and like most others in this city, led a hectic lifestyle, until 2015 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The subject of cancer was quite alien to me at the time, and when battling the illness and dealing with the side effects of treatments, I started to research extensively into the skincare products that I use. It was quite a shock for me to discover the amount of harmful chemicals our skin (the largest organ in our body) absorbs like a sponge on a daily basis. These cumulated chemicals can potentially cause long term damages to our health. In Europe, the European Union has banned over 1000 cosmetic products due to concerns that their ingredients causes cancer, birth defects, or reproductive ills. By contrast, the US has only banned 10.
I took extensive classes to learn more about mineral, essential oils and herbal remedies and how these substances can help me throughout my treatments. The journey of discovery has been extremely fascinating, and totally changed my viewpoint about my skincare regime. I discovered that a lot of natural ingredients have been used for decades and in some cases centuries, and can be a lot more effective in treating skin problems than chemically derived solutions. I started using these natural remedies on myself, and found them to be transformative.
I wanted to come up with a skincare line that is made of the best ingredients possible with maximum results. The end result is GLOHS.
GLOHS products comprise only of natural ingredients, and we aim to use organic whenever possible. This means no synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, which is healthier for the plants, our bodies and the environment.
