Hi again everyone,
In this blog we will continue to look at winners from the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards. Today, we’ll focus on some of the Italian brands who have been recognised for the quality of their products and their commitment towards natural beauty and green beauty.
As you may know, while the other members of the Global Makeup Awards are based in London, I live in Italy so this really is a fun topic for me to write about!
Let’s first take a look at the Rossano Ferretti Dolce Satin Glow Booster which was awarded Gold for Best Cruelty-Free Beauty Product.
Now, as you probably already know, I love a good back-story! Who doesn’t? Well Rossano’s is wonderful and I’ll try to briefly summarise it here although you really should visit the website for the full story. Born in a tiny village near Parma in Northern Italy, Rossina had hairdressing in his blood, his grandfather was a barber who would visit clients by riding about oh his little Lambretta! Rossano had a passion for hair design and architecture and soon after completing his studies (in hairdressing, naturally) he moved to London to further his knowledge, despite not speaking a word of English! Eventually, he travelled the world and learned several languages in his pursuit for knowledge around hair design and later opened his first salon in Parma. He is now hugely influential and very well respected globally for his expertise and contributions to the hair industry,
The Gold Winner for Best 100% natural product was Uoga Uoga for their Magic Wand . Launched in 2010 after initially making masks just for themselves and then for friends and family. The company's belief is that natural cosmetics should be affordable and replace every-day cosmetics. In 2015 they were awarded COSMOS Natural certification for some products and they are steadily adding this to all their range.Uoga Uoga are also serious about not testing on animals, using environmentally-friendly packaging and making sure production processes follow an environmental management plan!
Liola Cosmetics Moisturising light face cream with anti ageing action took Silver for Best 90% natural product. Liola Cosmetics was founded by a small team of experts with the objective of creating an Italian brand of excellence and making exclusively 100% Made in Italy products. Their large production site is eco-friendly and they recycle 99% of the water which they use while minimizing co2 emissions
Papavero Siero Contorno Occhi Anti-age took Silver for Best Organic Anti-Ageing Product .This company was started by a Sardinian couple, Leyla and Alessandro, both experts in e-commerce. Disappointed with the range of eco-friendly cosmetics products which were on offer and wanted to create something which matched their own standards and needs. This brand also proudly boasts packaging, ingredients and fragrances which are exclusively Made in Italy.
So, there you have a little info on the backgrounds of some of our 2021 Green Beauty Awards winners. These companies are all obviously dedicated to creating great products which are environmentally friendly. I’ve really enjoyed learning more about their backstories and hope you’ll check out not only their products but their websites to learn more!
Thanks for reading and ciao a tutti!
