Best FreeFrom Skincare Brand 2014


Gold Award


Beautiful handmade products, in which natural botanicals and plants are allowed to shine, and which always perform exceptionally well in testing. A 10th anniversary redesign has modernised this vegan and organic brand. Bronze medallists in this category in 2013, they are deserved winners in 2014.


Silver Award

Green People

Perennially good performers and medallists in the Free From Skincare Awards, with excellent labelling, a popular fragrance-free range, and strong products for men and children, as well as extensive women’s skincare. Four shortlisted products in 2014 – the most of any brand.


Bronze Award


A new-to-us range with very interesting and original probiotic skincare products, and strong environmental awareness. Both the brand’s shortlisted products performed extremely well, and its ‘Free From’ box was among the clearest we have seen on any range of cosmetics. 

Tropic Skincare

Vegan and natural range offering a wide range of skincare, bodycare and make-up products. Clear labelling – with plain English versions. Their Smoothing Cleanser was the highest scoring product in the history of the FreeFrom Skincare Awards – and the deserving overall product winner this year.
