“The demand for natural beauty, baby and household products is accelerating, with more parents intentionally switching to cleaner and greener products – and in turn, we’re seeing a significant increase in plant-based, organic-certified product launches to satisfy this demand,” says awards director Fiona Klonarides.
From totally compostable baby wipes to aroma-therapeutic sleep sprays, brands are focusing on innovative ways to provide comfort and peace of mind during this challenging time
“The pandemic has put natural and organic products front and centre in parents’ minds. From totally compostable baby wipes to aroma-therapeutic sleep sprays, brands are focusing on innovative ways to provide comfort and peace of mind during this challenging time, reinforcing the fact that there’s never been a more important time for parents to choose natural. Plus, keep a look out for “100% home compostable” zero trace products — an early but important trend.”
The specialist panel included Katie Hill, co-founder of eco living magazine My Green Pod; Holly Spierings, creative director of Australian brand Eye of Horus; and New York-based make-up artist and wellness consultant Denise del Russo.
