The founder of Rhug Wild Beauty, Lord Robert Newborough, was celebrated at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2022 Grand Final this month, winning the Health & Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

He was selected following the success of his COSMOS-certified skin and body care collection, Wild Beauty, produced using organic and wild foraged ingredients from the Rhug Estate in North Wales, along with sustainably sourced natural actives.

Rhug“I am absolutely thrilled to win the award, it’s testament to our vision to create a high-quality brand centred around the environment and sustainability,” said Lord Newborough. “Thank you to the judges and especially our hard-working Wild Beauty team, whom I share this with.”

The awards, now in their tenth year, are organized in partnership with Starling Bank and are designed to recognize the UK’s most inspiring entrepreneurial success stories.

The award ceremony, held at Grosvenor House, London, saw 1,400 entrepreneurs and colleagues celebrate a collective £2 billion generated in turnover and over 17,000 jobs.

“Celebrating Britain’s ambitious, driven and inspirational entrepreneurs for a decade has been an honour, and we’ve learnt so much from hearing all their unique stories and perspectives,” says awards founder Francesca James. “The extraordinary circumstances of the last few years have tested the resilience of our business communities, and the challenges were enough to give many entrepreneurs an excuse to give up. Instead, our award winners did the opposite and, through ingenuity, innovation and the ability to adapt, they thrived.”
