Did you know that the eleventh Free From Skincare Awards opened to entries on 21st March?

Over the years I've been a judge on these awards and I've seen many brands expand and improve under the guidance and feedback they receive from participating. Previous winners of the Best Overall Free From Skincare Product were:

* Qsilica’s Remove Make-up and Grime Cleansing Gel (2012)

What's it all about? The Free From Skincare Awards celebrate the best cosmetic products ‘free from’ some of the allergens and other ingredients many consumers wish to or need to avoid. This year there will be sixteen product categories, including a special awards for Best Brand, for Free From Achievement and a new award for Best Labelling.

Awards’ Director Alex Gazzola says “A Best Labelling Award is long overdue. We’ll be looking for brands and products which demonstrate excellence in labelling — be it in communicating ingredients, instructions for use, suitability, and any allergen guidance or ‘free from’ statements, if used. Those with sensitive skin or who avoid certain ingredients rely on clarity in labelling, and we’ll be rewarding the very best.”

Who can participate? These awards are open to brands sold and distributed in the UK, Ireland and Europe. Entries close 3rd May. The Finalists are revealed in June, and the Winners are announced in July. For information on rules, terms, conditions and how to enter see
