2017 Free From Skincare Awards - Open for Entries

2017 Free From Skincare Awards - Open for Entries

Shout out to all the brands ever featured on my blog......Have you entered the sixth annual FreeFrom Skincare Awards? 

Those of you who have been reading my blog for years will know I enjoy supporting these awards. I'm passionate about celebrating skincare which caters for those of us with concerns about what we put onto our bodies. The Free From Skincare Awards seek out products with strong natural qualities, formulated for skin health, or which are suitable for people with sensitivities and allergies. They reward beneficial ingredients, the absence of undesirable ingredients, and clear, accurate labelling – as well as strong performance.

This year there are fourteen categories, including Family Skincare (sponsored by longstanding supporters NATorigin), and a new Lip Care category. In addition, there are also special awards for Free From Achievement, as well as for Best Brand, and Best Overall Free From Product.

Previous winners of the Best Overall FreeFrom Skincare Product were:

Kinvara Skincare’s Absolute Cleansing Oil (2016)
Bloom Remedies’ Men’s Daily Moisture Care (2015)
Tropic Skincare’s Smoothing Cleanser (2014)
Barefoot Botanicals’ Face and Body Rescue Cream (2013)
Qsilica’s Remove Make-up and Grime Cleansing Gel (2012)

The 2017 Awards opened for entries on 1st February and close on 17th March. Month-long testing of all entered products takes place during March and April. Final panel judging sessions are in May, with presentations to winners taking place at the Love Natural Love You Show, Olympia, on 7th July.

The FreeFrom Skincare Awards were founded by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, director of the Free From Food Awards, now in their tenth year, and Alex Gazzola, deputy editor of SkinsMatter.com and a writer specialising in allergies and sensitivitiesThe Awards will be run in association with partners, The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible, The Love Natural Love You Show and Formula Botanica.
