Phewww! It’s very, very hot! Too much for me to go out during the day. I've been heading down to the beach for a SUP and swim in the evening. I get 15 minutes of sun before it disappears behind a mountain at which point the beach completely empties and I have it all to myself! Wonderful!
During the day I have my blinds down and my fans on, even my cats who are still only 2 years old and bundles of energy are spending their days relaxing in bushes or laying out on the tile floors. The basement is a little cooler so I might need to transfer my home office down there!
Luckily, Italy is used to hot summers and the infrastructure to cope with the heat. I remember past summers in London which were unusually hot and the public transport was unbearable! Good luck to everyone who needs to get around for work!
I’ve been making the most of my time inside and have written a few articles for the next Global Makeup Awards magazine which will be coming out on July 21 along with the announcement of winners from the 2022 Global Green Beauty Awards!

Winners announcement for the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards
We are all super excited here today because today the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards have just been announced! Our awards celebrate green and clean brands - brands which are eco-friendly and which make a real effort to minimise any negative impacts on the environment that their business might have. We had over 400 entries into these awards, such a fantastic sign that the environment means so much to so many fantastic companies! The categories are for vegan, natural, clean, ethical, or with green packaging. You can read the full list of winners from the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards in our online magazine here.
In today’s blog I’d like to take a closer look at three of the biggest names in the industry.
The first is Molton Brown whose Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel Refillable Glass Bottle took GOLD for Best Zero Waste Beauty Product. Molton Brown has also been one of my personal favourite larger brands. Their shop on Windsor High Street always had the most beautiful aromas and wonderful window displays as well as fantastic staff. As such, there are always some bottles of their bath and body wash in my bathroom. Founded in London in 1971, Molton Brown products have always been made in England and the ethos has always been around quality, individuality and the world around us
“There was this feeling of care. That’s really been the essence of what Molton Brown stood for and why the products developed.” Caroline Burstein, Co-founder and friend of the brand today.
This overarching value of care, for staff, customers and the world around us has led to them taking Gold for their Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel Refillable Glass Bottle. The refill pouches boast 80% less plastic use compared to two standard 300ml bottles as well as being Vegan friendly and cruelty free.
weDo/ Professional took Silver for best ethical beauty product and their No Plastic Shampoo. The brand was born from the idea of a small team within Wella who wanted to create a new product which would be eco-ethical, natural and Vegan Society Certified. Their mission was to “help people transition to a happier, healthier, & more sustainable lifestyle through acts, not words”.
L'OCCITANE took SILVER with their Intensive Intensive Repair Solid Shampoo for the Best sustainable beauty product award. This Natural Beauty brand from the South of France has a strong commitment towards nature and makes sure that they work with suppliers who share their values. In fact, every single drop of their organic immortelle essential oil can be traced to local farmers in Corsica. Other causes supported by L’OCCITANE include planting 15,00 almond trees and producing environmentally-friendly Shea Butter. In fact, they have provided business development training to 10,000 women in Burkina Faso, West Africa who produce this product.
Preventable blindness is also something very close to their hearts and may of their best-selling products are packaged with braille.
So, there we have some of the larger brands who were winners at the Global Green Beauty Awards!
In the next blog we’ll focus on some of the Italian winners!
Ciao a tutti!
