It's that time of year again and the fifth annual Free From Skincare Awards open on 1st February. Run by the team behind skincare site Skins Matter, the Awards celebrate the best skincare products that are ‘free from’ allergens and other ingredients which many consumers now avoid.
This year there are thirteen categories, including Family Skincare (sponsored by long standing supporters NATorigin), Make Up (sponsored by Benecos), and a special ‘Free From Achievement’ award (sponsored by Organii). Other categories include Men’s Grooming, Problem Skin, Hard Soaps and Hair Care.
The Awards seek out products with strong natural qualities, formulated for skin health, or which are suitable for people with skin or other sensitivities and allergies. They reward beneficial ingredients, the absence of undesirable ingredients, and clear, accurate labelling – as well as strong performance.
The Awards will be run in association with partners, The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible and The Love Natural Love Organic Show. Joining them this year is Formula Botanica, a renowned organic cosmetic science school.
Joining the Awards team as Co-ordinator this year is Nicola Nolan, who has over 8 years’ experience in health and beauty, and is a well-known figure in the organic industry, working with the Soil Association, and many organic brands.
