Botanicals won the prestigious ‘Best Brand’ in last year’s ‘FreeFrom’ Awards. And we’ve just heard the exciting news that four of the five products we submitted for this year’s awards have been shortlisted. We’ve also been shortlisted again for this year’s Best Brand Award. Which is fantastic!
The awards were created in 2012 by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson and Alex Gazzola to reward manufacturers of skincare products that are ‘free from’ many of the allergens, ingredients, additives and artificial fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, health concerns, and which also meet the highest standards of ethical, personal and environmental issues.
All the entries to the awards have undertaken a vigorous two month trial by a 100-strong panel of experienced Beauty Bible testers. So it’s great that we’ve had four products shortlisted from so many products. Now it’s up to the judges to decide who will be the winners in each category.
“The shortlist includes only products which performed well on a day to day basis and offered longer term benefits too.” Alex Gazzola, Awards co-ordinator
