Welcome to glo…My name is Jamie Wilson and I am the creator of glo. I grew up in a small town in the Midwest and have now lived in Raleigh for 12 years. I proudly call North Carolina my home but will never forget where I came from. What inspired me to create glo were my real life experiences with very pale skin (unable to tan), painful sunburns and bad self tanners. I remember my first sunburn like it was yesterday and I was five at the time. I began using self tanners at the age of 12, mostly all bad but being the pale girl out of the group I was willing to try anything.
I moved to North Carolina in my early twenties and that is when I really started protecting my skin. Being a nature lover, I fell in love with the beach but I knew I had to be well protected if I wanted to enjoy it. Yes, I was the girl with a ginormous, floppy hat and gigantic sunglasses and the highest SPF on the market and admittedly still am. Being that I have always loved the way beautiful tan skin looked I still used self tanners until I received my first sunless spray tan several years ago. That is what led me to glo. I knew there had to be other people like me that are unable to tan or don’t want to sacrifice the integrity of their skin. My passion is to make people feel and look beautiful while introducing them to a safe alternative to sunbathing.
