3 words to describe you: Light hearted, Empathic, Passionate

Favourite Beauty Chef Product: COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boosts, it tastes delicious with mineral water, helps my aches and pains and plumps my skin.

Daily Beauty Ritual: I keep my routine very simple. I use warm and cold compress in the morning to wake me up and a little Beauty Fix Balm under my eyes 30 minutes before applying my makeup. In the evening I cleanse then use Probiotic Skin refiner followed by Beauty Fix balm in winter. Once a week I use a face mask depending on what my skin needs.

Words to live by: “You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees & the stars; you have a right to be here”

Dr Belinda Chapman is a microbiologist with 20 years’ experience in microbiology research.  Belinda is passionate about understanding the importance and roles of microorganisms in the human body, food and the broader environment.

During her career Belinda has worked in microbiology research roles across industry and academia, including for The Sanitarium Health Food Company, where she worked with probiotic lactobacilli, Macquarie University, where she looked at the stress resistance of the yeast Saccharomyces and Arnotts, where she undertook research in fermentation. For 10 years Belinda was employed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) as a food microbiologist, during which time she worked extensively with food manufacturers in Australia, the Netherlands, Germany and the USA.

Belinda is currently Director of Quantal Bioscience, an Australian research company based in Sydney and specialising in microbiology research. Quantal Bioscience works with The Beauty Chef to continuously improve our understanding of fermented foods and probiotics. More broadly, Belinda and the team at Quantal Bioscience undertake microbiology research across the food, health and medical sectors with a number of clients in Australia and overseas. And, whenever they have a few moments spare, Belinda and the Quantal Bioscience team love to share their knowledge of microbiology with interested people of all ages, from teaching school students through their Science for Real and Budding Scientists Collaborative school holiday and after school science programs, to interacting with artisan food producers through their Made By Microbes initiative.

Favourite Beauty Chef Product: SLEEP Inner Beauty Powder & Beauty Fix Balm

Daily Beauty Ritual: Beauty for me begins on the inside starting with a good frame of mind. I love to do a meditation, and then wash my face & finish with the Probiotic Skin Refiner & Beauty Fix Balm. I find that jumping in the ocean, and doing yoga also helps the skin & hair, and overall mood!

Favourite Beauty Chef Product: GLOW Inner Beauty Powder

Daily Beauty Ritual: Inner Beauty routine: Glow Inner Beauty Powder with Collagen Inner Beauty Boost in the morning – in filtered water. In the afternoon I take BODY Inner Beauty Powder with a dose of either Hydration or Antioxidant Inner Beauty Boost. At night time I make a warm drink with SLEEP Inner Beauty Powder and coconut milk. Topically my routine is simple: I cleanse with coconut oil, apply The Beauty Chef’s Probiotic Skin Refiner and then finish with applying our Beauty Fix Balm to dry areas and around my eyes. Repeat at night time.

Words to live by: Look after your gut, be gutsy and follow your gut instinct.

Favourite Beauty Chef Product: SLEEP. Since I started to use SLEEP, I fall asleep easily and have  deep sleep every night. 

Daily Beauty Ritual: My daily beauty ritual is simple. After washing and shaving my face, I use some Beauty Fix Balm as a moisturiser for my dry skin. 

Words to live by: Your whole life is ahead of you. Don't look back.

3 words to describe you: Loyal, Trustworthy, Humorous

Favourite Beauty Chef Product: That's a tough one! I love the combination of GLOW & COLLAGEN and have noticed such a difference to my skin since taking them daily, but the Probiotic Skin Refiner is also amazing! My skin is smoother, clearer, hydrated and more refined after adding these products to my daily ritual.

Daily Beauty Ritual: Morning & night I cleanse with a natural charcoal cleansing bar, followed by Probiotic Skin Refiner. During the day I apply a light natural purifying lotion and at night use Beauty Fix Balm for a more intense, overnight moisturising treatment. Once a week I do a french red clay face mask.

Words to live by: Thoughts become things - Remember, whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting. 
"What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create" - Buddha

3 words to describe you: Positive, Cheeky and Enthusiastic

Favourite Beauty Chef Product: I can’t pick just one!! There’s at least three - GLOW, Probiotic Skin Refiner and Sleep.

Daily Beauty Ritual: I always, always, always take my makeup off and give my skin a good cleanse before bed. (Usually with organic coconut oil, followed by Probiotic Skin Refiner and I finish with Dream Repair Serum.)

Words to live by: True beauty is measured by kindness.

3 words to describe you: Compassionate, curious, sincere

Daily Beauty Ritual: Drinking lots of water! 

Words to live by: “Your greatness is not what you have, but in what you give”- Alice Hocker 

Dr Mike Bridges is an engineer and scientist with 25 years experience in food product design. His qualifications include a degree in process engineering and a PhD in cellular physiology. His special interests are anti-oxidants, trace elements and probiotics. Working with modern food processing techniques has given Mike an understanding of the areas in which modern dietary requirements may be lacking and he is passionate about developing products to allow these imbalances to be corrected. The increase in allergies and auto-immune conditions during the last 30 years and the subsequent research into the potential of specific strains of probiotics to correct these is an exciting area that is only just gaining public awareness. He is excited to be part of The Beauty Chef Formulation Team to allow these research findings to become available to individuals seeking to improve their health and beauty.
