Free From Skincare Awards 2016 ... We Won!!!!
We picked up FOUR awards including Silver for The Best Free From Skincare brand in the fifth annual FreeFrom Skincare Awards this weekend. It is so lovely to be recognised by such a prestigious award for our soapnut skincare. Not only winning one, but four awards is very exciting!
The Awards were founded to encourage and reward manufacturers of skincare products that are ‘free from’ many of the allergens, chemicals, additives and fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, allergies, and ethical, environmental and health concerns.
The awards were presented at The Love Natural, Love Organic Show at Olympia on Friday 8th July, by ‘Imperfectly Natural’ beauty and holistic health guru, Janey Lee Grace.
The announcements followed a long judging process which included a rigorous month-long assessment by testers recruited by the Awards’ associates, the Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible, and concluded with week-long expert judging sessions.
The Judges comments included:
"A first-time entrant with excellent products, all four of which were shortlisted, and deserved winner of three category medals."
Our other three awards were for:
Men's Grooming: Bronze for our Man Balm
“Over the month I feel that my skin does feel very well looked after, nicely moisturised and protected … it’s looking healthy and glowing, and there is no irritation, blemishes or sensitivity. I feel it would really come into its own during a cold winter when your face is exposed to the elements.”
Hair Care: Bronze for our Botanic Hair Oil
“The fragrance was lovely, herbal and fresh smelling. I have found the condition of my scalp to be improved, I suffer from dermatitis and the product has soothed it somewhat, it is less itchy."
"Left my hair soft and shiny. Does what it promises and I would buy it again, though I still have nearly the whole bottle left!”
Hard Soaps: Silver for our Activated Charcoal Soap
“Left my hands very soft and I didn't need to use a moisturiser as well. I was surprised as some soaps can be quite drying but this did have a nourishing effect.”
“Really gentle. Lathered well, didn't crack. Kept its subtle fragrance. Loved the packaging, loved that it's vegan, it could make a cute gift too.”
So many great comments from the judges, we're sooo freaaakkking stoked!!!!
