Hi again everybody,
In last week's blog I took a look behind some of my favourite winners from last year's Global Green Beauty Awards but as always I ran out of time so today I would like to continue on the theme!
Actually, today I am going to concentrate on fragrances, these can really change the way we feel about ourselves for the better but so many products on the market are full of chemicals. Anyway, today we are celebrating the Gold Winners from last year’s best ethical fragrance category and the fascinating stories behind the brands!
Let’s first take a look at the joint Gold Winner in the BEST ETHICAL FRAGRANCE category which went to Medeau Fragrance and their product Origin.
The story behind the brand is one I’m sure that many of us can relate to as while founder Allison Stubbings was pregnant, she was looking for a fragrance she could use that was toxin-free. Checking the ingredients of the products which were found for sale, they all included irritants, synthetic dyes, alarming preservatives and unnecessary plasticisers, things she understandably didn’t want her baby exposed to! The natural alternatives which she did find didn’t leave her feeling special and so began her journey! I have to say I love it when I find a brand that has such a poignant story behind it’s inception, it’s so refreshing to know that there is a genuine passion behind creating a product that will make people feel good and keep them healthy rather than a financial incentive! Medeau, as the name suggests, takes inspiration from English flowers combined with French luxury and is proudly 100% vegan with no toxic ingredients, dyes or endocrine disruptors.Consequently, Medeau fragrances are transparent, EWG approved as non-toxic, vegan and PETA certified and come in sustainable packaging.
Now let’s take a look at the brand which they shared the gold award with which was Nourishe Organics and their Mid Day Floral Spray.
Founded by Master Alchemist, Kristin Bauer whose impressive career has seen her study DNA mutation and treatment of patients in hospital burns units, we couldn't ask for more expertise and scientific research behind her wonderful line of products which are produced from the most authentic, organic ingredients available, using ethically grown and harvested raw materials with absolutely no preservatives.
Much like Allison, when Kristin fell pregnant, she took a deeper look at the chemicals that people put on their bodies everyday and wanted to do all she can to keep her own body, as well as that of her unborn baby, free from exposure to them. In her own words “How can we expect to have healthy bodies, if we are using polluted chemical products on our skin?”
Kristin is clearly dedicated to helping as many people as she can and even offers 1:1 consultations where she can share her amazing expertise with us!
Once again I’m out of time but I’ve really enjoyed learning more about the founders behind these brilliant fragrances and their reasons for creating their marvellous products!
I’ll be back again soon!
Ciao for now
