Entries have now opened for the 11th Beauty Shortlist Awards – the 100% independent awards which celebrate ethics and excellence across beauty, natural health, eco lifestyle and grooming.
For 2021 new or expanded Beauty Shortlist Awards categories include CBD (both skincare and oral/edibles), plastic-free, planet-friendly, zero trace, packaging, inclusive beauty and nutrition – plus fresh sections within natural health supplements.
This year’s judges, spanning London, New York and Sydney, include Katie Hill, founder and editor of My Green Pod; Denise Rabor, founder, WOW Beauty and make-up artist; Ana Green, founder of leading green beauty blog Ana Goes Green; Jessica Ourisman, clean beauty and wellness freelance beauty editor; Dawn Del Russo, TV presenter, beauty and style expert; Holly Schleich, creative director of Australian cosmetics brand Eye of Horus ; and Shahrzad, Sydney-based blogger and founder of @TheSpotBeauty.
“This year has been a pivotal one for the ethical beauty and eco lifestyle worlds, with our health, as well as the health of the planet, both headlining the news,” says awards founder Fiona Klonarides. “We’re seeing first-hand how brands from around the world are stepping up to innovate and create a new generation of safe and non-toxic products for daily life. And because the products undergo a particularly thorough judging process, consumers and retailers trust us to share the best with them.
“It’s always exciting to introduce people to names they might not have heard of before, and” encourage consumers to choose natural, reusable or zero trace products to help lighten the load of our over-burdened planet.”
Entries close on 6 November and winners will be announced on 2 March 2021.
