These awards give us a fascinating eagle eye view of the overall market and it’s been hands down the most eclectic, interesting year ever
This year also saw the introduction of new health categories, including: Best Natural Health Brand (Weleda, which won a total of nine awards), Best CBD Product (HempTouch 5% full spectrum CBD Oil), Best Ayurveda Supplement (Samaya Ayurveda), Best Eco All-Purpose Cleaner (Sodasan), Best Detox Tea (Dr Jackson’s), Best Supplement for Cognitive Health (Neurella), Best Sleep Product (Therapie Roques-O’Neil) and Best Aromatherapy Product (Tisserand).
“We’ve seen some marked trends this year – more glass/Miron skincare jars, more hemp/CBD products – both in beauty and the new Wellbeing Awards – a veer towards ‘less is more/one product does lots of things’, and some strong anti-pollution and blue light/HEV protection entries,” explains The Beauty Shortlist founder Fiona Klonarides. “These awards give us a fascinating eagle eye view of the overall market and it’s been hands down the most eclectic, interesting year ever”.
The Beauty Shortlist Awards are 100% independent and sponsor- and ad-free. All entries are judged by a panel of industry experts in the UK, Australia and USA over a six-month period.
