Since its launch in Ms. Oates' bedroom in 2009, The Beauty Chef has grown to become one of the largest beauty companies in Australia, with a worldwide presence in Selfridges, Net-A-Porter, Goop and Anthropology

It is also one of the leading brands in the beauty drink industry, with an estimated value of $ 400 million worldwide and fast growing.

Ms. Oates previously told Daily Mail Australia that the inspiration for her brand came from her daughters' struggle with the eczema of the skin condition.

"I started making lacto-fermented foods at home and I noticed a big difference in their skin and well-being.

& # 39; I also noticed a big difference in my skin when I ate them. Friends and family began to ask me what I was using, and then they became addicted to my fermented vegetables & # 39;

The Beauty Chef generated from there, a business that not only includes serums, balsams and lotions, but also powders that are mixed with water or put in shakes.

The powders are full of superfood ingredients such as macqui berries, zinc and grape skins rich in antioxidants, which help internal and external health.
