Winners 2016


Best FreeFrom Skincare Product 2016

 

Kinvara Skincare Absolute Cleansing Oil

A top performing cleansing oil, which was really liked by testers and judges alike, and particularly complimented for its use of highly original watermelon seed oil. 

The rebrand and packaging was much admired, and its at-a-glance and very clear labelling – both of ingredients, including highlighted oils, and free from labelling – was second to none. A deserved overall winner. 

 


Runners up:

Apicare, Manuka Natural Rich Day Crème

BALMOLOGY, Calendula & Chamomile Comfort Balm

SenSpa, Talc Free Natural Body Powder

The Naked Skincare Company, Mint, Rosemary and Spirulina Clay Soap

Sukin
Supergreens Nourishing Chia Seed Oil+

Exceptional free-from qualities in this oil – it’s free from preservatives, fragrance allergens and food allergens – one of only a small handful of such products entered into the Awards. Judges were additionally impressed with its use of chia – the ingredient of the moment – and liked that its use was being championed in skincare too!
