The twelfth annual Free From Skincare Awards saw Italian skincare brand OliPhenolia triumphed, being named overall champion and awarded Best Free From Skincare Product 2023 for its Intensive Serum.

Oliphenolia“It is rare for a few-ingredient product which is essentially allergen-free to perform quite as strongly as the Intensive Serum did,” says awards director, Alex Gazzola, commenting on teh OliPhenolia win. “One of the highest scorers with testers and with some of the strongest ‘free from’ attributes across the entire competition … Judges felt it was the clear champion.”

Last year’s winners of the Best Free From Brand Award, North Wales’s Rhug Wild Beauty, successfully defended its title and won two golds and three silvers in the individual product categories.

Other gold category winners included: Balmonds Skincare (Family Skincare); SUK (Men’s Grooming); Battle Green (Hair Care); Pure Lakes Skincare (Body Care – Leave On); Blumáin Organic Skincare (Bath & Body Oils); and Organicules (Deodorants).
