AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND AWARD WINNING BEAUTY BRANDS FROM THE 2021 GLOBAL GREEN BEAUTY AWARDS
Hi again everybody,
As you know, the 2021 Global Green Awards are an international affair, the clue is the name, right? Even so, we were delighted to have had so many winners from Australia and New Zealand; today I’d like to take a closer look at what makes those brands tick!
First of all we have P’URE Papayacare who won two GOLD awards. They were judged to be number one in the BEST NATURAL BEAUTY PRODUCT category for their P’URE Papayacare Skin Food and also took GOLD for BEST NATURAL BODY PRODUCT with their P'URE Payacare Papaya Renew Cream.
This wonderful New Zealand brand was started by a group of Naturopaths (I love this word!!!) who had a brand ethos of being Natural By Nature. They strictly use food grade ingredients and are passionate about avoiding any kind of ingredient which could be harmful, especially chemical ingredients. As the name implies, they use Papaya ingredients due to their vitamins, minerals and healthy enzymes.
Meanwhile, Australia’s Founders Formula took home Gold for BEST VEGAN SKINCARE PRODUCT for their Phyto-A+ Australian Native Tobacco Serum. Founded by anthropologist Dr Annie Holden who used her scientific knowledge to identify that Australian plants have some amazing properties which they have evolved due to the isolated nature of the country and these powerful adaptations to living in the extreme Australian climate mean they can be excellent ingredients for the skin. Even more interestingly, there are still thousands of plants which are yet to be studied so there is potential for even more exciting news in the future. Definitely a company to keep an eye on!
Editor’s Choice Gold Winner at the Global Green Awards was TE WAI ~ 'The Water' from New Zealand. Founders Brooke & Carrick Graham spent 3 years doing their research before providing us with an incredible hydrating fine-mist face spray that they feel does justice to New Zealand’s breathtaking natural beauty and wild freshness. Experienced travelers, Brooke & Carrick clearly have huge pride in their homeland and a strong desire to promote it to the rest of the world. With TE WAI they have created a product which really makes anyone who uses it feel the desire to visit New Zealand!
GOLD WINNER for MOST INNOVATIVE 'GREEN' PRODUCT went to Sensori FRESHIELD™ Mask Sanitiser Byron Bay Breeze 2481. A Brilliant idea, especially in these covid times, where the product sanitises your face mask, and also helps provide a fresh scent and prevent mask acne!
SENSORI+ was created by three very different individuals with three very different expertise yet a shared passion for wellbeing and sustainability. They state their raison d’etre is to “anticipate and provide the latest wellbeing solutions whilst being the positive force behind the evolutionary changes across the community”.
Finally, Australian brand Three Warriors won Gold for BEST CLEAN BEAUTY PRODUCT with their Face Tan Aqua Mist. Once again Three Warriors have a great back story behind the product. Founder Corbin Halliday openly admits not being too concerned about the ingredients used in skin products or indeed in food before falling seriously ill, realising how many toxins were in everyday products and completely reevaluating lifestyle choices. Consequently, Three Warriors are strongly committed to using natural products and providing a safe and healthy alternative to tanning!
I must say I’ve absolutely loved sharing a little bit of background on these Australian and New Zealand companies and wish I could have written more but I do encourage you to visit their websites for a more thorough review of their great stories and admirable business practices!
Until next time, ciao for now!
Australian and New Zealand beauty winners in the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards
Award winning Australian and New Zealand Beauty Brands
Hi again everyone!
So in the last blog I wrote about T-Beauty (Taiwanese Beauty) and delved deeper into the stories behind some of the winners from the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards. Today I want to focus on Australian and New Zealand companies which were successful in the awards same awards.
Let’s have a look at some winners from the New Zealand and Australian winners from the ASIA 2021 Global Makeup Awards, as the region 'Asia' was all encompassing for Australasia and Asia.
Soya Garden won 6 awards at the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards, including three Gold Awards for Best Beauty Brand, Best Design & Packaging and Best Moisturizer. Soya Garden draw their inspiration from nature and are relentless in their pursuit of finding the most potent soy products along with the most natural ingredients possible to create products which are New Zealand through and through. They are clearly passionate not only about their products' ability to improve the health of our skin but also in the role this plays in our all-round health and well-being. This is part of the reason why natural ingredients are so important to them. On their website they say
“We’re not about changing the way you look,
We’re out to change the way you feel;
More healthy, more vibrant, more comfortable in your own skin;”
I absolutely love that! So please check out Soya Garden’s wonderful products safe in the knowledge that they are an authentic brand with an admirable ethos and put a touch of New Zealand into your life! They were very well deserving of all their beauty awards this year.
Another New Zealand brand which performed really well at the 2021 Asia Global makeup Awards was Yes Organics with their Lemon & Lime Lip Balm - Lemonade which was BEST LIP BALM GOLD WINNER. Like some other past winners, the Yes Organics story begins with a future entrepreneur’s personal journey of trying to find a product which works for them and is aligned with their ethical values. I love these stories as they are relatable and a world away from some faceless major corporations who sometimes use slick marketing and tricks to mask less than ideal business practices! In this case, Yes Organics started out searching for and then creating a wonderful lip balm but has since then expanded its range to include tinting and anti-aging lip balms as well as cold sore treatments.
They are dedicated to cruelty free, 100% natural and organic lip balms with no preservatives and use premium, fair trade, 100% natural, ethically sourced, cruelty free and certified organic (where possible) ingredients.
Zuii Organic won two Asia Global Makeup Awards, fpr best foundation and best organic beauty brand. Their mission is very clearly stated on their website “creating a much greener and much cleaner future”.
One distinct advantage that Zuii Organic have when making their wonderful products is that they own their own manufacturing facility which obviously gives them complete control over all aspects of production and allows them to ensure that there are no shortcuts or compromises to their values.
Wow, I have so much fun writing these blogs that I’ve gone on a bit too much already! Don’t worry, there is more to come soon but for now I’ll make this sign off brief!
Ciao a tutti!
