Winners announced in Free From Skincare Awards 2019
Weleda’s Skin Food Body Butter has triumphed in the eighth annual Free From Skincare Awards, winning the Overall Award for Best Free From Skincare Product. “Fulfils its promise to banish dehydrated skin with ease,” enthused one tester. “My body is now a dry-free zone of silky moisturised skin. A beautiful formula and a pleasure to use.”

First-time participants from Finland, Laponie of Scandinavia, took the prestigious Best Free From Brand Award, while their Face Cream, jointly with Lyonsleaf’s Calendula and Marshmallow Cream, bagged the all-important Free From Achievement Award.

Free from synthetic ingredients, food allergens, and animal ingredients, Weleda’s Skin Food Body Butter beat stiff competition from 14 other category winners, including products by debutants Casa Mencarelli, NATHEO, and Bloom & Blossom, who were runners-up. 

“This year we opened up the Awards to all European brands, and the standard of entries from countries such as Spain, Greece, Finland, Bulgaria and Germany was impressive,” said Awards Co-ordinator, Alex Gazzola. “Judges and testers were excited to discover products that they wouldn’t ordinarily be able to try. Hopefully some of these brands can soon secure wider distribution across the UK.”

As you may or not know I had the pleasure of judging for my 7th year. I'm always amazed by the number of entrants and the quality of products. Aside from the task of judging I'm also keep my eye out for products that are of personal interest. Listed below, I've selected from the winners & medallists products that do not contain essential oil allergens.
