COMMITMENT TO PURITY

What makes us unique?

 

We feel so strongly about the recovery benefits of  alpine flowers, trees and shrubs that we leave Telluride to broaden our repertoire of  ingredients. We search mountainous regions worldwide for the most potent whole-plant ingredients that can only be found in higher elevations. These extremophile botanicals, some above treeline, fight to survive extreme conditions and produce some of the most nutrient-dense plant compositions on the planet.  Our ingredient repertoire includes 13 coveted alpine botanicals, some rare and precious, and are primarily organic to ensure monitored cultivation. We custom curate for each product; no two products contain the same blends. Our levels of higher elevation ingredients are so significant that you won’t find higher concentrations anywhere in the market.

 

You’ll notice that each product has its own rich natural coloration and fragrance, such as the vibrant rose petal pink in the Snow Rose mask, and rich amber from the Scandinavian Cloudberry, Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Berry and Rosehip from the Andes.

 

TellurideGlow is a proud over-achiever of forcibly pure, unadulterated skincare. TellurideGlow chooses natural preservation techniques supported with third party laboratory testing. We choose natural and organic ingredients from sustainable farming and Fair Trade wherever possible. Our precious ingredients are protected with minimal processing and cold formulation, then bottled in protective glass with treatment pumps to ensure efficacy to the last drop. Our condensed formulas do not contain fillers. As a rule, we select only ingredients that are non-GMO, organic, bio-dynamic, wild-crafted and sustainable. The line is gluten free, with the exception of the Snow Rose Recovery Mask, which does not contain gluten but shares a facility that handles organic gluten products. Our unique cold-processed formulas are antioxidant enriched and promise to deliver results, authenticity, and maximum benefits without any of the harsh ingredients listed on our banned list. Our return policy is any time, for any reason.

HIGH RECOVERY ALPINE BOTANICALS

I’ve always been fascinated by the survival mechanisms of the delicate wildflowers and plants that thrive at higher elevations. I learned that the same factors that keep these plants vibrant at high altitudes also help keep our skin healthy and vital: phytonutrients, antioxidants, rich omegas, vitamins, and minerals.  It made perfect sense to fight skin aggression with the same alpine plants that have perfected thriving in stressful environments. TellurideGlow products are packed with active levels of the plants that call these environments home.

 

TellurideGlow incorporates extreme stress responding botanicals from higher elevations around the world into every formulation including wildcrafted Cloudberry from Scandinavia, organic Sea Buckthorn from the Himalayas, Glacial Clay from New Zealand, organic Rosehip from the Andes and eco-mountain region of the Bulgarian Balkans, Goji from Nepal, organic Argan sustainably harvested from a biosphere reserve in the High-Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountains of Morocco, high altitude Lavender from the Bulgarian Balkans, and Arnica Montana Flower, Aspen, Bearberry, and Mullein from alpine meadows…with sustainably harvested Edelweiss from the Swiss Alps and many more coming soon for an impressive list of over a dozen beautiful and nutrient-dense alpine botanicals!

 

Finally, I’m a believer that skin care should be easy and enjoyable, something to look forward to, and most of all, uncomplicated. TellurideGlow products are designed to work on all skin types and address multiple skin issues, and our natural scents are meticulously developed for a delightful skin care ritual.
