As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I really enjoy working on the Global Green Beauty Awards and I can’t wait for this year’s! In my last blog I talked about four silver winners from last year’s awards. Today, I want to continue on this theme, writing a little more about those previous winners.
Provacan were Silver Winners for Best Salt Based Products with their CBD Bath Salts 100mg. Founded by Clifton Flack who moved from the UK to Israel in 2005 where he swiftly became recognised as an expert in consumer and corporate marketing. He became particularly interested in CBD as an ingredient and applied his ability to really listen and react to customer feedback to develop Provacan into an industry leading brand with a reputation for customer responsiveness. They take great pride in their transparency and their science led process which ensures that all their ingredients are independently lab-tested to make sure they are from the highest-grade certified organic EU hemp.
Another of my favourites is the MOST INNOVATIVE 'GREEN' PRODUCT GOLD WINNER which went to The Cheeky Panda with their marvallous Biodegradable Bamboo Facial Wipes. First of all, these guys have the cutest little logo featuring, unsurprisingly, a cheeky little panda! These guys understand how by using toiletries responsibly we can also reduce our impact on the environment and how bamboo is an ideal resource for making an important difference! If you still need convincing, these guys have some numbers to back up their claims! By using bamboo we will use 65% less carbon emissions than by using tree based products. Bamboo also releases 35% more oxygen, and absorbs 30% more carbon than trees.
BRONZE WINNER from the same category was awarded to The Soap Loaf Company for their Cosmeti-Craft Solid Deodorant Crafting Kit. These guys are really exciting because they offer the unique opportunity to go into their workshops at any time during opening hours and make your own bath bomb, scrubs, body butters, moisturiser, lip balm, solid deodorant, solid perfume, foot lotion, shower fizzers and shampoo bars. They have tutorials available in the workshops and also take bookings for groups and parties! How fun!
The company is also committed to running an environmentally friendly business and uses 100% recycled packaging as well as re-using and recycling all the plastics and other materials which arrive from suppliers.
Those were three very different companies and products, all three had their own distinct styles yet they were all winners at the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards in recognition of not only their super products but also their dedication to clean beauty and the steps they made towards making their businesses and clean as possible while demonstrating a commitment to continual improvement!
Thank you again for joining me today! It’s really great to be able to share the stories of winners with you and learn more about the inner workings of the companies which enter the awards!
I’ll be back again soon with a focus on some more of my favourite brands! Until then…
Ciao for now!
Hemp winners in the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards
In today’s blog I would like to dig a little deeper into the stories behind some of the winners from the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards that use Hemp in their products. Hemp Seed Oil is a high and balanced essential fatty acid (it contains omegas 3 and 6) and this makes it a great ingredient for cosmetics and body care products. It helps soothe and revitalise skin, particularly when included in salves and creams. The oil also contains gamma-linolenic acid which research has shown to potentially be a natural sunscreen aid.
So, let’s look at the hemp product winners in the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards!
To begin with, I would like to take a closer look at Hemptouch who were awarded Gold in BEST HEMP PRODUCT for their Soothing CBD Skin Balm which strengthens the skin's natural barrier, as well as calming the skin of irritation and redness. Silvija, their co-founder, is a biologist and herbalist and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the benefits and remedies which plants offer. Their philosophy is that nature is the best medicine and they make a very poignant point about how everything we apply to our skins enters our bodies.
They shared GOLD with the Hemp Oil Shampoo Bar by Nurme. This product soothes irritated scalps as well as being environmentally friendly because of being a shampoo bar - so zero plastic and no water. Interestingly, 'Nurme' comes from the Estonian word for meadow and the peace and contentment we get from being in or imagining a meadow is the basis for what the company aims to achieve from its products. Nurme makes a promise to their customers to use only natural ingredients, to always be cruelty-free and animal friendly and to keep their products as simple as possible.
Coming a very close second was Naturecan CBD CLAY MASK who took Silver for Best Hemp Product. Created with soothing aloe vera for blemish-prone skin, the clay removes daily impurities to give your face its glow back. It contains hemp seed which helps with absorbing excess oil to support your skin’s natural balance. Founded in 2019, this new company already boasts a team of nearly 40 people including a large branch in Japan. They share a passion for natural products and environmental sustainability. Founders Andy and Paul already had impressive CVs and backgrounds in business and the health industry. They have combined their talents to create a premium wellness brand that offers safe hemp derived CBD and other health related products.
Italian brand That’so Glowy Gold Dry Shimmering Oil were awarded Bronze in the Best Hemp Product category. Owned by the Quadra group, all of That’so’s cosmetics are designed and made in Italy. They believe in Fast Beauty and create their products so that they can be applied easily without any loss in quality or results. They also have a fantastic and informative blog with recent posts making interesting points on Cosmetic Drone Technology and sun protection for the skin, especially during summer!
It certainly looks like there is a bright future for products which include hemp in their ingredients, especially as legislation and public opinion shifts and natural products become more and more popular and sought after. Furthermore, current research is exploring CBD’s potential anti-inflammatory properties which could potentially be used to treat degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s.
So, that brings us the end of another blog! I have to say I’ve really enjoyed delving a little deeper into the stories behind these recent winners and I do hope you’ve enjoyed reading a little more about the stories behind the products!
And one more side note - Did you know the winners of the USA Global Makeup Awards will be announced soon as well? Even more game-changing beauty product winners will be shown to you from across the pond.
Ciao for now!
