|The Free From Skincare Awards, soon to be in their ninth year, aim to celebrate the best in ‘free from’ skincare products — cosmetics ‘free from’ some of the many ingredients which consumers need or want to avoid, be it due to health issues, skin allergies, ethical concerns, environmental issues, religious sensibilities, personal preference, or other reasons.
The awards — which open annually in late Winter — are entirely independent and all entries are subject to a rigorous testing and judging process, culminating in the announcement of a Shortlist in May, and the Winners in July.
The awards are widely promoted through their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts.
To find out more about getting involved, start at How to Enter.
