FreeFrom Skincare Awards shortlist revealed

The shortlist has been announced for this year's FreeFrom Skincare Awards, seeing almost 200 products from over 100 brands selected.

This is the seventh year the awards have taken place, acknowledging and rewarding skincare and cosmetic products that are ‘free from' many of the ingredients which some consumers need to or want to avoid.

There are 14 categories across the awards plus Best FreeFrom Skincare Brand, Best FreeFrom Achievement, and Best Overall FreeFrom Skincare Product. Shortlisting was carried out by a 100-strong team of product testers.

Bloomtown leads the way with six products shortlisted, followed by five nominations each for Lyonsleaf and Rosalena. Green People, Eminence Organic Skincare, Urban Veda, Bare Faced Skin and Kinvara Skincare each have four products shortlisted.

Kirsty Mawhinney, Awards Administrator, says:

“We were excited by the innovation in products this year. Among them were spirulina and beetroot-coloured kids' bath bombs, solid shampoo cubes, an eyelash oil, a scalp hydrator for men, and a probiotic deodorant.”

Alex Gazzola, Awards Co-ordinator, adds:

“Every year the diversity of entries delights testers and judges. But this year the standard excelled, which is terrific news for those consumers with allergies, problem skin conditions, religious sensibilities and ethical or environmental concerns who rely on free from skincare products.”

Winners will be announced at the FreeFrom Skincare Awards presentation on 5th July.
