How is GlimpseTM Skin Care different from other skin care products?
Glimpse Skin Care is green-focused topical nutrition for skin featuring our exclusive BioActive X3 ComplexTM which utilizes unique biofermentation technology from Japan. Glimpse Skin Care supports the skin’s own ability to function efficiently and maintain its healthy state with a simple, 4-step daily regimen.What is BioActive X3 Complex?
"Bio = LifeWhat does the “Intuitive” part of Glimpse Intuitive Skin Care mean?
Active = Performance
X3 = 3 exclusive xanthone complexes
Patents-pending BioActive X3 ComplexTM is shown to calm the signs of inflammation, promote natural collagen production and protect the skin against the oxidizing effects of free radicals.
BioActive X3 ComplexTM offers greater antioxidant potency than vitamin C, resveratrol, CoQ10, green tea, catechins and astaxanthin.
Glimpse is intuitive with self-adjusting formulations to address your skin’s ever-changing needs. It is the first performance based skin nutrition system ever created. What part of Glimpse is patent pending?
BioActive X3 Complex will be patented. The three exclusive ingredients are patent-pending. What is biofermentation?
Biofermentation is a unique scientific process that amplifies desired qualities found in nature. It is used to make wine and other food products and is one of the oldest technologies with thousands of years of history. Because of the delicate processing and meticulous care required to produce desired results, fermentation is often considered an art among scientists. What is mangosteen-infused water?
Glimpse formulas do not begin with regular water. Glimpse formulas begin with a unique, one-of-a-kind, mangosteen-infused water. This process entails steeping (like a tea bag in water) mangosteen pericarp powder into USP grade purified water. This allows for the transfer of mangosteen’s powerful phytonutrients into the first ingredient and base of each formula. You can enjoy optimal skin benefits from mangosteen with mangosteen-infused water.I heard Glimpse Skin Care is a brand with green focus. But what exactly does “green focus” mean?
XANGO selects ingredients from natural sources as much as possible. In addition, XANGO takes extra steps to make sure each ingredient is clean of hidden additives, chemicals or toxins. Upon manufacturing Glimpse, XANGO uses a special blending technology called cold processing, reducing carbon emissions which could negatively impact the environment. Additionally, cold processing enhances the efficacy of the product by supporting the nutrient integrity of the performance ingredients within the formulations.Are Glimpse products tested by dermatologists?
Yes. All Glimpse formulas are tested by dermatologists.Why is cold processing important?
Many cosmetic products are blended at near-boiling temperatures for various reasons. This process often compromises the potency of vitamins and natural enzymatic activity of botanical phytonutrients. XANGO utilizes cold processing where the blending of active ingredients takes place at a lower temperature to ensure nutrient integrity of performance ingredients. This special processing method is more “green” or environmentally friendly, than traditional blending processes as it requires less energy and leaves a smaller carbon footprint on the environment.Is Glimpse Skin Care organic?
No. Currently there is no global certification on organic products. XANGO has not gone this direction. XANGO does, however, source ingredients from credible suppliers that produce their botanical ingredients under sustainable conditions.Does Glimpse Skin Care contain SPF?
Glimpse Skin Care does not contain any FDA approved SPF ingredients. However, some of the natural ingredients in Glimpse Skin Care protect the skin from environmental damage.Why are all 4 steps important?
To get the best results for your skin, it’s important to use all 4 steps in the Glimpse Skin Care System because each product is formulated for specific benefits that are designed to work in combination with one another to achieve healthy skin.Does Glimpse Skin Care contain wheat protein or any wheat byproduct?
No. Glimpse Skin Care is gluten-free and does not contain any ingredients from wheat.Does Glimpse Skin Care contain soy?
Yes. Glimpse Skin Care contains soy.Does Glimpse Skin Care contain lecithin?
No. Glimpse Skin Care does not contain lecithin.Does Glimpse Skin Care contain peanuts?
No. Glimpse Skin Care does not contain peanuts.What preservatives are used in Glimpse Skin Care?
Glimpse Skin Care uses a minimal level of food-grade and other gentle preservatives, such as sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and botanical-based ingredients, which help to preserve the products.Are there any animal byproducts in Glimpse formulas?
Glimpse has one ingredient derived from marine crustacean, but there is no other ingredient that may be considered an animal ingredient or animal byproduct.Is Glimpse Skin Care tested on animals?
Glimpse Skin Care products are not tested on animals as indicated on the product package and sales tools.Are new Glimpse cartons eco-friendly?
Our new Glimpse cartons are made from FSC certified paper and are fully recyclable.What is FSC certified?
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit organization devoted to encouraging the responsible management of the world’s forests. They set high standards that ensure forestry is practiced in an environmentally responsible, socially beneficial, and economically viable way.What is Safe Cosmetics? Has XANGO signed the Coalition for Safe Cosmetics?
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a coalition working to protect your health by calling for the elimination of chemicals used in the cosmetics industry linked to cancer, birth defects and other health problems. Yes, XANGO has signed the Coalition for Safe Cosmetics.I heard some of the commonly used ingredients in skin care are harsh on skin. Does Glimpse Skin Care contain any harsh chemicals?
Does Glimpse skin care use a synthetic fragrance?
Glimpse Skin Care is designed to work intuitively to support skin’s daily functions without the use of harsh chemicals or dangerous toxins. Based on XANGO’s strict ingredient philosophy, Glimpse products are free from the following ingredients that are potentially harmful to skin and health:
- Mineral Oil Phenoxyethanol Petrolatum
- Formaldehyde donors (preservatives)
- Synthetic dyes such as FD&C or D&C colors Sodium/Potassium Hydroxide
- Sulfates (SLES, SLS, ALS)
- Quaternary Ammonium
- Alcohol (like Ethanol, SD Alcohol)
- GM (Glyceryl Monostearate)
- Ethanolamines i.e. TEA, DEA
- Synthetic fragrance
Glimpse does not contain any synthetic fragrances. The aroma comes from the blend of BioActive X3 Complex and other botanical ingredients. Each ingredient is selected carefully for the specific purpose of nutritional benefit and supplementation to the largest organ of the body, the skin, but at the same time produces a subtle, natural aroma that dissipates quickly. According to the EWG, an analysis of the chemical contents of products reveals that innocuous-looking “fragrance” often contains chemicals linked to negative health effects. Phthalates, used to make fragrances last longer, are associated with damage to the male reproductive system and artificial musks accumulate in our bodies and can be found in breast milk. Some artificial musks are even linked to cancer. Fragrance formulas are considered to be among the top 5 known allergens, and can trigger asthma attacks. The same kinds of chemicals are often used for fragrance in cleaning products, scented candles and air fresheners.Glimpse does not smell like anything I am used to using. Why is it not more fragrant?
Glimpse does not contain any synthetic fragrances. Its aroma comes from the blend of BioActive X3 Complex and other botanical ingredients. Each ingredient is selected carefully for the specific purpose of nutritional benefit and supplementation to your skin, but at the same time produces a subtle, natural aroma that dissipates quickly.Who is the NPA (Natural Product Association)?
The Natural Products Association certifies products that are formulated without ingredients suspected of human health risk. And, XANGO is proud to announce our NPA seal of acceptance for Glimpse, the first network marketing company to receive this honor. Our certification from the Natural Products Association is just one more way that XANGO is leading the industry.What does the NPA certified symbol mean?
Simply put, the Natural Products Association Standard for Personal Care Products states that all personal care products labeled or branded “natural” must be made with at least 95% all-natural ingredients and contain only synthetic ingredients specifically allowed under this standard that do not have suspected human health risks. This standard is a set of guidelines that dictates whether a product meets the association’s definition of “natural.” It encompasses all cosmetic personal care products regulated and defined by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Based on evaluation of the other personal care standards around the globe the Natural Standard for Personal Care Products aims to clearly define what a “natural” personal care product is and what it is not, and to help consumers, manufacturers, suppliers, retailers and the industry at large clearly understand and identify those products meeting the association standard.Why is Glimpse serum not NPA certified?
XANGO pledges to provide green, sustainable, and natural products that deliver results. We proudly stand behind each Glimpse formula and its safe, non-toxic ingredient list. Five of the six current products in the Glimpse Intuitive Skin Care meet NPA certification standards and carry this designation on our packaging; our serum does not currently qualify. It is important to understand that the serum is extremely safe, and does meet the very high standards set forth by both the Compact for Safe Cosmetics and EU regulations, as do other Glimpse products. There are two requirements for NPA certification: (1) at least 95% of a product must contain all-natural plant based ingredients, and (2) synthetic ingredients included in a product’s formulation do not have suspected human health risks. The Glimpse serum qualifies under the second, perhaps most important requirement of not containing ingredients with suspected human health risks. It falls just short of qualifying for the 95% all-natural standard. Glucosamine is one of our active ingredients from a marine source instead of a plant source. And, the other active ingredient is Niacinimide, Vitamin B3. XANGO has pledged that once naturally derived forms of these two ingredients become available in a source that delivers results, XANGO will integrate them into our Glimpse serum. The current use of these ingredients is based on the fact that consumer’s number one demand is performance and results, and in the case of these two ingredients, we did not sacrifice either of these attributes to achieve the NPA certification.Where is Glimpse manufactured?
XANGO does not disclose the manufacturer information for Glimpse Skin Care.What results can I expect to see from using Glimpse?
Is Glimpse Skin Care for women only?
Harnessing the nutrient-rich gifts from the mangosteen, Glimpse Skin Care works intuitively. The result is firm, supple, radiant and healthy-looking skin.

No. Glimpse Skin Care is for both men and women who are conscious about their skin health.How often do I use Glimpse products?
XANGO recommends a very simple 4-step regimen twice daily, morning and night.I love Glimpse but wonder if there is a quick tip for applying all 4 steps?
Absolutely. This quick tip is for anyone and we call it our “Glimpse Cocktail”. First, cleanse face thoroughly with your choice of Glimpse cleanser, then mix in your hand 2 pumps of toner, 2 pumps of serum and 4 pumps of each moisturizer. Mix your “Glimpse Cocktail” together in palm and apply over face, neck and chest.Which product should I use?
XANGO recommends using a full, 4-step system for optimal results. The system represents significant savings compared to purchasing individual products. Use System I for normal to dry skin if you have dry or mature skin. System II for normal to combination skin is designed for people with overactive skin. In addition, many people like to use a combination of both System I and System II (ex. Use System I at night to keep the skin well hydrated during the night time, and System II for daytime to keep the skin refreshed throughout the day).My skin is very sensitive. Can I use Glimpse products?
Yes, Glimpse Skin Care is designed for sensitive skin. But people have different reactions to skin care products. Sometimes the products you have been using for months and years can cause a reaction when a new skin care system is introduced. If you are concerned that you may experience an adverse reaction, apply the product to the inside of your forearm prior to using it on your face, check for any signs of sensitivity.Why am I experiencing flushing/redness when I use Glimpse for the first time?
Rather than producing a cosmetic effect—as is the case with many traditional skin care products containing synthetics, fillers, silicones and occlusive emollients—Glimpse formulas allow your skin to breathe, supporting an optimal state of wellbeing. Glimpse formulas are active, biologically alive compounds that you may actually feel on your skin the first time you use Glimpse—this can manifest itself in an initial flushing of the skin. Similar to the slight flushing in your skin after exercise, this is a positive effect. The flushing you may experience with Glimpse is its own form of exercise for your skin, delivering oxygen that brings results! If you experience flushing, it usually subsides. However, if you experience swelling or other adverse reaction, please discontinue use.Why am I suddenly experiencing breakouts?
It is common with the introduction of any new skin care regimen to experience a mild detoxification. With Glimpse, the introduction of green and toxin-free skin care will be welcome and refreshing to your skin, since it has never experienced something so natural and luxurious. But even this change in regimen may cause a few blemishes as the skin and body purge pre-existing toxins. Because this detoxification purge is a temporary—and for many of us, necessary—step, it is important that you continue your Glimpse regimen. Our experience is that after a few weeks of consistent Glimpse usage, your skin will acclimate to its new regimen, revealing hydrated, smooth, radiant and healthy-looking skin—skin that is no longer absorbing harmful chemicals. For optimal results, be sure to remove all traces of cleanser and other impurities each time you cleanse your face.What is a Glimpse Skin Care System?
Glimpse Skin Care System is a 4-step skin care system with cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer. It is available for two skin types: System I for normal to dry skin, and System II for normal to combination skin.What is a Glimpse Skin Care Complete System?
Glimpse Skin Care Complete System is a combination of all 6 Glimpse products that provide comprehensive nutrients and supplementation for all skin types. The complete system includes Creamy Cleanser, Gel Cleanser, Toner, Serum, Moisturizing Cream and Moisturizing Lotion.I received my Glimpse products but they expire within 6 months. Why is XANGO sending the products with such a short expiration date?
The safety of XANGO products is our number one priority. As Glimpse was created based on advanced green chemistry with a natural and gentle preservative system, we carefully monitor product stability and safety—as we do with all XANGO products. To ensure complete consumer safety, we carefully evaluate and determine the appropriate expiration date on each batch of each product produced. While most XANGO products are intended for 30 day usage, we anticipate complete product consumption to be within three months of ordering. For this reason, we do not ship product if the expiration date is less than three months from the order date.How can I find the expiration date of External Wellness products such as Glimpse or Juni?
If your product comes in a box, you can find the expiration date on the bottom of the box. The format is MM/YYYY. If your product does not come in a box, you can find the expiration date on the bottom of the package.I received my Glimpse Complete System but the expiration date on the outer box does not match the date printed on the individual products inside. Why?
If there are multiple products with different expiration dates in one box, we are legally required to print the expiration date of the soonest expiring product on the outside of the box. This does not mean that every product in the box will expire at that time. To find out the expiration date of each product, please open the outer box and look on the bottom of each individual product box.
