Sarah Lee and Christine Chang have a combined 20+ years of experience in global beauty, working both in Korea and the US. During that time, they spread their experience across 8 international brands, developing and launching hundreds of products while testing tens of thousands more. In 2014, Sarah and Christine founded Glow Recipe to create a lovingly curated destination for natural, harsh-free beauty products and as a platform to introduce the latest skincare innovations from South Korea to the world. Glow Recipe Skincare was born in 2017 with the launch of the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask and Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser. At launch, the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask sold out over seven times on both glowrecipe.com and at Sephora, generating a waitlist that exceeded 8,000 people. Today, Sarah and Christine have focused entirely on their namesake brand, Glow Recipe Skincare, and has expanded the line to include products that harness watermelon, avocado, and pineapple. Glow Recipe can be found online and in Sephora stores throughout the US and Canada.
