Alex Gazzola, coordinator of the awards, said, “It’s great to see this sustained growth. These products are invaluable to consumers with allergies, problem skin conditions, religious sensibilities and ethical or environmental concerns. The judges have had a tough time deciding on winners!”
Kristy Mawhinney, awards administrator, was quoted saying, “Half the brands on the shortlist are first-time entrants to the awards, and many are new and small start-ups. This reflects the degree to which ‘free from’ and natural skincare is constantly growing and improving.”
