Welcome to the latest episode of our Podcast series "In Conversation" where we bring you inspiring stories, retail insights and conversation from the beauty sectors's most influential business leaders.
Anna Lahey, Founder of the ingestible beauty brand Vida Glow, discovered marine collagen in Japan – long before it became the major beauty buzzword that it is today. When Anna founded Vida Glow in 2014, collagen was hard to find in the West and there was little knowledge about its benefits for skin, hair and nails. Fast forward to today and Vida Glow has taken the world by storm – with one unit sold globally every four seconds.
As the brand has continued to innovate, it has also extended its product range beyond marine collagen and today includes ingestible beauty solutions that target a number of concerns, such as hair loss, pigmentation and skin dryness, as well as a small range of topical beauty products.
Vida Glow has also expanded internationally, and is available in Anna’s home country Australia, as well as the UK, the US, France and Germany, and is stocked in Liberty, Harrods, Selfridges, FeelUnique and Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche.
In this episode of the In Conversation podcast in partnership with Klarna for Business, Anna speaks to News and Features Writer, Camilla Rydzek about why she started Vida Glow, all there is to know about ingestible collagen and why Vida Glow takes around two years to develop new formulations, and of course, what we can look forward to from Vida Glow in the future.
