High-definition Celebrity Makeup Artist & Skin Care Specialist, Kim Borio, created the category of Luxury Vegan Skincare with Glycelene. After suffering from eczema her entire life mostly triggered by allergens and synthetic topicals, she set out to re-invent Petroleum Jelly by creating cutting edge, breathable ointments made with the purest, highest quality, natural and organic ingredients.
Kim started with three petroleum free, wax-free luxury ointments; The Beauty Ointment, an anti-aging balm for the face, lips, neck and eye area, The Eczema Ointment, for flare-ups and soothing irritated skin, and The Vegan Ointment, for cracked feet, elbows and skin.
THE GLYCELENE TEAM
When Kim met Eric, a Biologist and innovative R&D Cosmetic Chemist specializing in natural formulations that are results driven, she learned that lack of Glycerin in the skin and lack of "oil chemistry" in the skin can cause irritation and eczema, hence the name Glycelene, (pronounced GLISS-UH-LEEN) named after glycerin and oil.
Kim and Eric started their own laboratory in California and spares no expense to formulate the most beautiful products with Eric for skin healing and maintaining, delaying and reversing the aging process.
GLYCELELENE STARTED BEHIND THE SCENES
Once Kim saw the results on her own skin, she began using Glycelene behind the scenes in the makeup room on celebrities. Kim started thinking of products to invent that would work well under makeup and hot lights for a long lasting, high definition, camera ready look. The Glycelene line expanded and has been a behind the scenes, go-to skincare secret for makeup artists, hairdressers and celebrities.
GLYCELENE PARTNERS WITH THE LUXURY SPA WORLD
We've always done everything organically through word of mouth marketing. Eventually, the luxury spas and resort world was introduced to Glycelene and sought after our luxury organic line. We decided to be a very exclusive skincare line to maintain our high quality formulations, so we only partner with certain spas.
We immediately created our own unique facial and body treatments using techniques that are curated for each spa and individual. (See our list of spas resorts here) . Self care on vacation has always been very important to Kim. Experiencing our journey of natural scents, body rituals and Golden ice Globe facials will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated.
Using our own technology and chemistry, Kim and Eric have created a vast amount of unisex products for every type of skin. We continue to create the most premium, active, natural beauty made with the highest quality organic ingredients. We formulate fresh products daily, straight from our laboratory to your skin. Our luxury line will always be 100% vegan, safe and effective.
