After six months of testing entries from 40 countries, The Beauty Shortlist announced its new International Beauty Awards on 02 March 2018 – and green beauty pioneer Weleda bagged an incredible six awards.
This year The Beauty Shortlist assembled an international team of judges from the UK, USA and Australia to put beauty products through their paces – championing natural, organic and eco-luxury cosmetics in particular.
Weleda scooped awards in the following categories:
Best Fair Trade/Sustainable Brand: Weleda (Winner)
Best Lip Tint/Tinted Lip Balm: Tinted Lip Balms (Winner)
Best Body Wash/Shower Gel: Almond Sensitive Body Wash (Winner)
Best Body Oil: Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil (Finalist)
Editor’s Choice Award: Beauty Balm in Bronze
Editor’s Choice Award: Wild Rose Smoothing Day Cream
5th consecutive Sustainable Award
Weleda’s managing director, Jayn Sterland, was especially thrilled the company had been recognised again for Best Fair Trade/Sustainable Brand.
Jayn said, ‘We are so honoured to win the Sustainable Award for a fifth consecutive year! Sustainably sourced, fairly traded ingredients are the heart and soul of our business. Weleda was the first European beauty brand to become a member of the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) and sustainability remains a primary focus for Weleda.’
‘These awards are completely independent – there’s no public vote, no ads, no sponsors. There are well over a hundred winners, lots of beautiful, results-driven, feel-good, effective products to discover and fall in love with, across beauty, health and grooming. All tried, tested, loved and recommended by our judging panels’.

Fiona Klonarides, founder of The Beauty Shortlist, said that the awards ‘are not easy to win’; over 600 brands entered this year, and judging took place over a six-month period that drew to a close in February.
Fiona added that British, Scandinavian, Australian and US brands have emerged as this year’s biggest Beauty Shortlist Awards winners. ‘Australia is ahead of us on the clean beauty front from an international perspective’, she said, ‘while New York and California have been pioneering that trend in the US, and Scandinavia in Europe’.
