Good to Glo aim to revolutionise the way consumers and beauty professionals manage their allergy testing records by establishing a universal digital database accessible for consumers and beauty professionals. This will allow consumers and salons to safely manage and share allergy testing data. GTG are looking to reinforce this with reliable technical information supported with appropriate compliance training.


Good to Glo wanted to provide their clients with scientific facts and not the marketing hype.

So proud of what we’ve built Mike, and I respect you immensely for what you bring to the #goodtoglo table. Mostly a huge thank you for believing in my big ideas from the word go and going with it.

  • Identify current compliance regulation: The current regulatory requirements and technical aspects of patch testing was unclear due to the high volume of inaccurate and misleading marketing information available in the public domain.


  • Provide technical figurehead: The business lacked a scientific lead, critically important when dealing with the detailed scientific and technical aspects of the business.


  • Literature and technical review: The business required technical reviews and summaries for internal understanding of the subject area, and a source of technical information for marketing collateral and training packs.
