Crystal-infused cleansers, botanical-powered skincare and mood-boosting aromatherapeutic bath and body heroes are among the biggest winners at this year’s Beauty Shortlist Awards.
Entries were evaluated by three industry expert panels in the UK, USA and Australia over a period of three months.
My Green Pod co-founder Katie Hill once again joined the UK judging panel and was blown away by the strength of the entries. ‘It was great to see new names shine alongside more established brands’, she said. ‘It is real testament to the way these awards create a level playing field for authentically ethical brands, big or small.’
