About the business

Vida Glow is growing at a remarkable rate. Our ever growing team of passionate specialists are working to capitalise on that momentum, fortifying our position as a leader in ingestible beauty and giving us a platform to extend our reach in terms of our markets, our audiences and the products we offer.

We are driving the business forward with a distinctly unique position that sets Vida Glow apart from a highly competitive market drowning in a sea of sameness.

We have the opportunity to create the foundation of a truly world class global brand that inspires and creates positive impact on our customers’ lives and that inspires us all.

We will shortly take up a whole floor interior architect designed Head Quarters in North Sydney to house our growing team.
