Best FreeFrom Skincare Brand 2013


Gold Award

Neal’s Yard Remedies

Not only exceptionally pure – but exceptionally well-performing – with its three shortlisted products taking a gold and two silvers. Beautiful, distinctive packaging. Strong defenders of ‘free from’ labelling – and with appropriately strong ‘free from’ qualities – plus a reassuringly considerate attitude towards the environment and sustainability. A worthy winner of the inaugural ‘Best FreeFrom Brand’ Award.


Silver Award


A new-to-us brand with chic, smart packaging and ingredients of exceptional quality. Carefully thought-out products with interesting formulations, all packaged and presented extremely well, with fragrances which delighted our testers and judges. A very appealing brand, and we very much look forward to future launches and growth. 


Bronze Award

Green People

Well established, widely trusted natural brand, great champions of organic living, with a broad and constantly developing range of products for all the family, including an excellent fragrance-free range for sensitive skins, and which have always proved popular with our reviewers – and easily among the best, if not THE best, at product labelling.


A wonderful range of mother nature-inspired products – unashamedly and charmingly English, with considerate environmental and ethical foundations, and demonstrating good understanding of natural ingredients and their particular qualities. Very well tolerated, low allergen and ‘free from’ friendly products, which deserve to be more widely known.
