Our Farm:

At 7 Day Glow, our connection to nature is reflected in every bottle of our skincare products. With each uncapped bottle, you're not just opening skincare, but also immersing yourself in the very essence of our farm and lab—a formulation that embodies our commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

Nestled in the heart of North Central Wisconsin, lies the 7 Day Glow Farm—a sanctuary of botanical wonders. Spread across 40 acres, this farm is unlike any other in the region. Here, you won't find dairy cows or chickens; instead, it's a working botanical farm where seeds are sown, botanicals are planted, and the magic of nature is cultivated harmoniously with the wild creatures who live there.

From seed to bottle, our journey begins at the 7 Day Glow Farm. It's where we nurture each plant under the Wisconsin sun, harvest with care, and even infuse some of the oils used in our skincare products. This heartfelt connection from our farm to you ensures that every 7 Day Glow bottle is infused with the purest essence of nature.

Our Packaging.

At 7 Day Glow, sustainability isn't just a buzzword—it's ingrained in every aspect of our operations, including our packaging choices.

Glass reigns supreme as the primary material for our product containers. Its unparalleled recyclability and reusability make it the perfect choice for eco-conscious consumers. While some plastic is necessary for product functionality, we prioritize minimizing its use whenever possible.

In instances where plastic containers are unavoidable—such as for products like body scrubs—safety is our top priority. In this case, plastic ensures that our products remain safe for use, particularly in wet and slippery conditions.

When it comes to packing materials, we're committed to eco-friendly solutions. Whether it's utilizing recycled materials from our lab shipments or opting for recyclable/compostable options, every component of our packaging reflects our dedication to sustainability.

But our commitment doesn't end there. We're constantly seeking out new ways to elevate our eco-conscious practices, ensuring that each decision we make leaves a positive impact on the planet.

And let's not forget about our 7 Day Glow farm. Nestled in the heart of Wisconsin, a portion of our land is dedicated to preserving natural habitats for the diverse wildlife that calls our farm home. From deer and rabbits to bumblebees and butterflies, our farm is a sanctuary for all.

Experience the difference with 7 Day Glow—where sustainability meets skincare excellence, and every choice reflects our commitment to a greener future.

Our Roots:

Christine Untiedt founded her first bath & body company (Brown Barn Botanicals) in 2009 on the 40 acre botanical farm located in heart of central Wisconsin's agricultural area she owns with her husband, Steve. Both Christine and Steve hail from long lines of Wisconsin family farmers. Christine is the 4th generation of her Wisconsin farm family, who arrived in Wisconsin in 1856. These lineages instilled not only a dedication to preserving their farm heritage but also to maintaining a natural approach to their lifestyle.

When they married, it made perfect sense that the young couple would purchase what is now the 7 Day Glow farm, complete with a large vintage glass greenhouse and deteriorating old brown barn. Christine and Steve wanted to live on a farmstead where their children could enjoy the natural lifestyle Christine and Steve had experienced growing up.

Over the years Christine was drawn more and more deeply into herbalism, drawing on her memories of lessons learned from her great aunt and grandmother on the farm she grew up on. Christine already knew about the potent power of herbs in skincare for healing but it was not until later in life that she began to apply those same principles to skincare product formulating.

As she researched natural skincare formulations and examined the "natural" and "clean" skincare products of other companies Christine began to recognize that there was a great discrepancy between the claims of many skincare companies and what she knew to be the truth. She also realized that very few companies actually provided their own ingredients from their own farms, instead many companies were using ingredients or even completed and bottled formulations that were imported.

Christine knew from her experience in farming all of the mis-steps an ingredient can take in the process from planting to arriving at its final destination. For example, animal infestations, bug droppings, air pollution, aging out on the shelf, unclean processing, and more are pitfalls to importing ingredients.

Christine began digging deeper into ingredients hailed by other companies as "hero" ingredients that would miraculously change the skin structure. She found most of these claims disappointing. It quickly became clear to her that many companies simply went with what was the most cost effective ingredients, not with the best ingredients. By purchasing ingredients from foreign countries without labor standards, large companies can realize huge cost savings. But these ingredients were not necessarily fresh, organic, or even clean - even though the company's labels claimed they were.

In addition, she identified that many companies were overlapping the ingredients in their product line into every single product. They were just using the same ingredients over and over in fresh packaging and encouraging customers to layer them on. This also was a great cost savings to large companies who bought in large bulk. This was like only feeding your skin steak and spinach but leaving out all the nutrients of a wide variety of foods.

Christine set out on a journey to create a new kind of skincare product line. One that was fresh, that harnessed the power of locally grown ingredients, that was based on the principle that more ingredients would bring a wider and stronger range of results, and one that was transparent and had a low environmental impact. Her goal was to create a natural product line based in locally grown ingredients that worked just as well as top drawer luxury skincare lines.

In 2011 Christine was joined in this quest by her daughter, Alyssa. Alyssa is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Universities with dual degrees in biology and wildlife management with advanced coursework in chemistry and ethnobotany. Thru her education, Alyssa had developed a passion for natural skincare and shared in the journey. Over time they both became certified in natural skincare formulation. Alyssa went on to become a certified holistic clinical aromatherapist, adding a whole new level of benefit to the 7 Day Glow formulations. And Christine added self-care mentor certification and passionate advocate for self-care to her Master's degree in Education, applying her background in education to 7 Day Glow customer education allows our customers to learn as they Glow.

In 2018 Alyssa founded 7 Day Glow as a three piece oil-based skin care system that embraced all of the principles she and Christine hold dear - results-driven natural formulations, ingredient integrity, corporate transparency, low environmental footprint, customer education, and marrying science with nature.

In 2023, Brown Barn Botanicals officially merged with 7 Day Glow. Alyssa and Christine worked together to develop the formulations for an updated 7 Day Glow skincare line, which now includes the original 7 Day Glow three piece system alongside a selection of water-based and oil-based cleansers, moisturizers, body products, and more.
