Bruns, Zenz Organic, Soley and BAMbeautiful - this season's must-have hair brands
Hi again everyone,
Today I would like to finish the run of blogs on the Global Green Beauty Awards with a look at some great winners from the hair care categories.
Firstly, we have Sóley Iceland whose Graedir Shampoo won Gold for BEST 'GREEN' SHOWER PRODUCT. Drawing heavily from Iceland’s largely unpolluted and undeveloped natural beauty, Solely are able to use top-quality ingredients. Their website has a wonderful video that shows the richness of plantlife there and how in summer, the blossoms provide a huge natural pharmacy. These ingredients are integral not only to their products but to their whole ethos! They consider their star ingredients to be the hand-picked herbs which are used in all of their products! Do check them out!
Two brands shared the Gold Award for BEST NATURAL SHAMPOO. The first was BAMBeautiful for their Hair Thickening Shampoo. This company specialises in products which treat hair loss and independent studies have confirmed fantastic results. They make their products in England and are committed to being a cruelty-free and vegan-friendly brand.
The joint winner was Bruns for their fabulous no1 Shampoo. Founders Johanna and Cecilia are two hugely experienced hairdressers from Sweden. They had seen some of the nasty side effects which customers had experienced after using products which were full of harsh chemicals and had a vision to combine their hair expertise with a commitment to improving the customer experience while working in a sustainable fashion and avoiding chemicals. A big part of their success story is the inclusion of Johanna’s 75 year old father in the business. He is fascinated by the composition of the raw materials and is integral to the formulas which make the cut. Founded in 2014, Brun also put out a wonderful magazine (see here) with further information on their green journey as well as some very useful pieces of hairstyling and info on their new journey into skincare!
Finally we’ll take a look at the Gold Winner for BEST ETHICAL HAIR PRODUCT which was Zenz Organic for their Oil Treatment Pure no. 97. Zenz, like Bruns, also come with a rich history in hairdressing, although their founder is from Denmark. They focus on making hair products which are loved by professional hairdressers and their background means they know exactly what the industry veterans are looking for. They share the Scandinavian ethos of sustainability and have a passion for natural ingredients and eco-friendly practices. Wonderfully transparent ,their website gives full details on all the ingredients used in their products and details how they work to achieve 12 of the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals.
So, that's it from me for now. However, the Global Green Beauty Awards will be back next year so I’m already excited to be working on that again. In the meantime, enjoy this lovely early Autumn period and do check out the companies I’ve mentioned today, all of whom were worthy winners and deserved recognition for their great work both in creating hair products and in their commitment to green beauty!
Ciao for now!

In today’s blog let’s take a better look at winners from our hair and body categories in the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards!
Gold Winner of the Best Shampoo award was Ayumi with their super Moringa & Neem Shampoo. This product beat a lot of strong competition thanks to its natural ingredients including Argan Oil and Moringa Seed Oil which keep hair moisturized and nourished while removing grease and cleaning beautifully.

Ayumi are certified by PETA, Vegan Skincare and Cruelty Free International
& Other Stories is a company which began when a few creative types found each other, each with thousands of different ideas but the shared dream to provide freedom of expression to women via a single brand. They now have ateliers in Stockholm, Los Angeles and Paris. & Other Stories were worthy winners of our Best Shower Product Gold Award for their Lärkstaden Shower Oil. This shower oil is registered by the Vegan Society and the bottle is made with recycled PCR plastic.
Best Hair Masque/ Treatment Gold Award Winner went to Creightons Pro-Keratin Repairing Deep Treatment Masque. This fantastic masque revitalises dry and damaged hair through its intensive moisturising and strengthening properties. Cruelty-free and with natural actives, this once a week treatment is also formulated with Keratin to give hair more shine and make it more manageable.
Professionally formulated with Keratin to intensively care for dry, damaged hair. Use once a week to strengthen and repair, leaving hair soft, shiny and more manageable.
In our BEST FAKE TAN category, we had two joint winners for gold! They were FFS Self-Tanning Mousse and St Moriz Spray tan in a can.
FFS Managing Director Liz Needham states that although they are a small company, they like to aim big! They also do not compromise on their strong values, sourcing their products locally wherever possible, making a genuine effort to become carbon-neutral and working on a 100% cruelty-free basis. Also vegan friendly, this amazing mousse dries quickly and hydrates the skin giving a beautiful, healthy glow.
St. Moriz Clear Spray Tan in a Can is a hassle-free, easy way to get a gorgeous glow and is really easy to use! Another plus is that it doesn’t leave marks on clothes or bedding. The 360° spray means it can be applied in all directions, even upside down, making this a very handy piece of kit and the results are incredible!
Founded in 2007 by a team of self-confessed self tan addicts, St Moriz are dedicated to the cause of improving tanning products! Mot only that, their products are clean, vegan-friendly, non-toxic and cruelty free.
Thanks to all these gold winners for their brilliant products and their obvious passion for what they do! It meant for so many great entries for Body and Hair categories in the 2021 Global Makeup Awards. We appreciate it and love seeing so many game-changing new products by different brands in our UK Beauty Awards!
