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!
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!
In the last few blogs I have really enjoyed getting deeper into the stories behind some of our previous winners from the last USA Global Makeup Awards and Asia Global Makeup Awards. It’s so fascinating to discover the back stories behind the companies which were judged winners on the basis of their products. I don’t think it can be a coincidence that brands who really have an amazing backstory and clear raison d’etre end up creating award-winning products. So often, I read about someone who, unable to find a suitable skin product either for themselves or a loved one, takes the step of creating their own solution and starting a business that aligns with their own personal values and ethics.
The next USA Global Makeup Awards will be held soon! Entries are now open so why not enter this amazing American Beauty Awards!

The 2021 USA Global Makeup Awards are open for entries!
So in the last two blogs we took a closer look at the recent winners from Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand from the ! In today’s blog I want to focus on winners from the last American Beauty Awards!
The USA 2021 Global Makeup Awards are now open, the deadline for entries is the 1st August so don’t delay if you would like to get involved! These awards are perfect for brands based in the USA and Canada. As always, we are looking for exciting new beauty, skincare, haircare and cosmetics launches. Though you don't have to be based in America to enter, we do require that the cosmetics are available to purchase in the USA or Canada.
One of last year's exciting winners in the 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards was Dr. Bronner. Who won the gold beauty award of:
BEST BODY PRODUCT GOLD WINNER -
Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray
As you probably know by now, I love getting to know as much as I can about every brand’s back story and their values. Delving into their history and mission statements isn’t usually very hard but it feels like Dr Bronner designed their website especially for me. It is Wonderful and goes into great detail about the brand’s roots, what it stands for and what is aiming for! Before reading further, you must check out their website’s About section and their Six Cosmic Principles. I will paraphrase some info here but I could never do them justice so I’d really love for you to see for yourselves. Their passion is infectious! The Six Cosmic Principles are:
Work hard and Grow!
Do right by customers
Treat staff like family
Be fair to suppliers
Treat the earth like home
Fund & Fight for what’s right
Each point is elaborated on, I urge you to take a look if you still haven’t! They also have a fascinating history which dates back 150 years and five generations as well as a touching tribute to Uncle Ralph, a fantastic character and integral part of the story who would visit town’s with his guitar and drum up a crowd while promoting Dr Bronner products. The whole company philosophy is incredibly inspiring and shows the good a business can do in the community if it has the right priorities.
Their organic peppermint hand sanitiser spray itself is a delicious fast, drying alcohol spray for the hands. It is a handy pocket size and has a minty fragrance... not too dissimilar from toothpaste!
Another winner in the USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards was Kanddit beauty who took GOLD for BEST BEAUTY TOOL WINNER with their Slant tweezers. Their website is currently under renovation and we can’t wait to see the new site as soon as it is published! However, you can purchase them from Amazon and their slanted tweezers are high performing, even against the smallest hairs.
Another USA brand which performed well was No Mo-Stache who took Gold for BEST HAIR REMOVAL PRODUCT. Founded in 2015 by Gita Vasseghi after she had decided to create a product which could be used to remove hair while out and about. After creating the first ever portable hair removal kit she has appeared on USA TV network TV and No Mo-Stache products can now be found in over 10,000 worldwide locations.
Well, once again I’m running out of time and space. I hope you can tell how much I enjoyed writing this blog and I hope some of my enthusiasm has rubbed off! Don’t forget to enter the USA 2021 Global Makeup Awards and to check out the full list of previous winners here - https://www.globalmakeupawards.com/usaglobalmakeupawardswinners.html#/
I’ll be back again soon with my last blog of the month, until then keep doing what you’re doing! We absolutely love your work!
Award winning Australian and New Zealand Beauty Brands
Hi again everyone!
So in the last blog I wrote about T-Beauty (Taiwanese Beauty) and delved deeper into the stories behind some of the winners from the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards. Today I want to focus on Australian and New Zealand companies which were successful in the awards same awards.
Let’s have a look at some winners from the New Zealand and Australian winners from the ASIA 2021 Global Makeup Awards, as the region 'Asia' was all encompassing for Australasia and Asia.
Soya Garden won 6 awards at the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards, including three Gold Awards for Best Beauty Brand, Best Design & Packaging and Best Moisturizer. Soya Garden draw their inspiration from nature and are relentless in their pursuit of finding the most potent soy products along with the most natural ingredients possible to create products which are New Zealand through and through. They are clearly passionate not only about their products' ability to improve the health of our skin but also in the role this plays in our all-round health and well-being. This is part of the reason why natural ingredients are so important to them. On their website they say
“We’re not about changing the way you look,
We’re out to change the way you feel;
More healthy, more vibrant, more comfortable in your own skin;”
I absolutely love that! So please check out Soya Garden’s wonderful products safe in the knowledge that they are an authentic brand with an admirable ethos and put a touch of New Zealand into your life! They were very well deserving of all their beauty awards this year.
Another New Zealand brand which performed really well at the 2021 Asia Global makeup Awards was Yes Organics with their Lemon & Lime Lip Balm - Lemonade which was BEST LIP BALM GOLD WINNER. Like some other past winners, the Yes Organics story begins with a future entrepreneur’s personal journey of trying to find a product which works for them and is aligned with their ethical values. I love these stories as they are relatable and a world away from some faceless major corporations who sometimes use slick marketing and tricks to mask less than ideal business practices! In this case, Yes Organics started out searching for and then creating a wonderful lip balm but has since then expanded its range to include tinting and anti-aging lip balms as well as cold sore treatments.
They are dedicated to cruelty free, 100% natural and organic lip balms with no preservatives and use premium, fair trade, 100% natural, ethically sourced, cruelty free and certified organic (where possible) ingredients.
Zuii Organic won two Asia Global Makeup Awards, fpr best foundation and best organic beauty brand. Their mission is very clearly stated on their website “creating a much greener and much cleaner future”.
One distinct advantage that Zuii Organic have when making their wonderful products is that they own their own manufacturing facility which obviously gives them complete control over all aspects of production and allows them to ensure that there are no shortcuts or compromises to their values.
Wow, I have so much fun writing these blogs that I’ve gone on a bit too much already! Don’t worry, there is more to come soon but for now I’ll make this sign off brief!
Ciao a tutti!
Hi again everyone!
Wow, summer has arrived here in Italy. It is baking hot so I’m inside with my blinds down trying to avoid the full midday heat, without much success!
In today’s blog, I want to write about some of the Taiwanese beauty awards winners of the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards and share some info about their products as well as their stories. This was our first year launching in the Asian beauty market so it was really interesting to see the different styles of beauty entries from the different Asian beauty markets. We will firstly touch on the wider backdrop of Taiwanese beauty within the Asian beauty market.
Firstly though, I would like to write a little about T Beauty (Taiwanese Beauty) What is it and how is it different from K Beauty (Korean Beauty)? Well, actually, this topic has already been superbly written about over at MIIRU Shop, see their post here but if I can summarise their article, the main difference is that T Beauty is derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine and its main focus is on health and well-being. K Beauty on the other hand is mainly inspired by the country’s famous pop stars and actors and is focused on being a multi (sometimes 10 step) step skincare regime to create flawless skin.
So, let’s take a closer look at some of the winners from our recent Asian beauty awards.
Firstly, we have Siele who took home three awards including Gold in the BEST SERUM category for their SIELE DIVINE REVITALIZING AQUA GEL.
SIELE seeks to work with nature’s principles without harming it. Their concept is to create skin-friendly, natural and environmentally-friendly products. In their view, good skincare can also have the power to help the body, mind and spirit to relax. The founder considers herself to be a modern woman and wants people to really understand the importance of natural beauty products and the ingredients used in them. Beyond that, she aims to provide fashionable, natural products which highlight each woman’s individuality and personality.
The Taiwanese MY BEAUTY DIARY also won multiple awards including Gold for Best Face Mask for their Rejuvenate Deep Hydration Mask. Founded in 2005, My Beauty Diary is now sold in 15 different countries. They have three main aims, to lead clients on their beauty journey, to provide safe and reliable products, and to remain loyal and supportive to their customers. This is one of the biggest names in the Asian beauty scene, and most famous for their face masks. Though - they also won an award for their ampoules in this years 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards.
The BEST BODY PRODUCT GOLD WINNER was T Beauty company SECRET CASTLE for their ROSE ESSENCE BODY LOTION. Secret Castle was established in 2015, and we were most impressed with the Rose Essence Body Lotion which is an amazing product that was a worthy winner of its Gold win in the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards. They also have a strong range of other bath and body products. Previously, their 3 in 1 rose shampoo has also won in our Global Makeup Awards. The heady floral scent is perfect for feeling clean and fresh from the shower.
Aeveop was a contender in the BEST ANTI AGEING PRODUCT category and finished as GOLD WINNER for their Revitalizing Facial Oil. Aeveop and Swissvita are two excellent brands which are overarched by Allyoung Group. Established in 2007, they now sell over 1 million units every single year through their network of brands and are devoted to social responsibility and environmental sustainability. They have also collaborated with ELLE on product development and eCommerce.
So, thanks to all these companies for their fantastic T Beauty Products and for being part of the 2021 ASIA GLOBAL MAKEUP AWARDS. Its been great sharing more info about their stories!
I’ll be back soon with a focus on other winners from the 2021 Asia Global Makeup Awards!
Ciao a tutti!
As we near the end of the month, I want to squeeze in one more blog with some more information about some recent winners at the 2021 UK Global Makeup Awards. It’s really such a treat being able to work alongside such inspiring brands, writing these blogs is a lot of fun and I do urge you to check out some of the Gold Winners we’re looking at today if you haven’t already! So, without further delay, let’s go to the first company who won in our beauty awards!
Alice in Beautyland won gold for Best Luxury Makeup Brand. Inspired by Lewis Caroll’s famous protagonist, the team want to create products that fit in with Alice’s adventurous and courageous approach. Founded by sisters Eva and Aroa, both of whom grew up with sensitive skin and an understanding of how difficult it was to find makeup products which would work for them, Alice in Beautyland champions the diversity of beauty and challenges dated stereotypes and preconceptions. Their fantastic makeup collection includes KISS ME Nº1 WHITE RABBIT LIP BALM, KISS ME LIPSTICK, and BEAUTY ME MINERAL FOUNDATION. All of which were judged as winners in the Global Makeup Awards 2021.
BEST ORGANIC BEAUTY BRAND GOLD WINNER from the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards went to Dr Botanicals. Once again we find a fantastic brand that has its roots a long way back and is born partially due to an inspirational parental figure. In the case of Dr Botanicals, founder Richard grew up in an innovative environment, his father was a chemist who began creating skin treatments in 1958 while at university. Dr Botanicals was started in 2011 and since then has become a leading luxury vegan brand, while also being behind Organic & Botanic, and the 100% natural brand; Apothecary.
Bio-Oil’ Natural Skincare Oil won gold in the BEST NATURAL PRODUCT category. Launched in 1987, at a time when all other skin products were either creams or lotions, Bio-Oil were pioneers in the use of oil on scars and stretchmarks. Last year they launched a Natural Skincare Oil which uses 100% natural oils and follows on from the success of their original Skincare Oil which was the first product to be scientifically proven to have effective results on improving the appearance of scars and stretch marks. This year marks the launch of a high oil cream moisturiser and , as ever, the team continues to focus on research, leaving distribution matters and sales for licensed skincare companies to deal with.
Forever Living Aloe Liquid Soap were our BEST LIQUID SOAP GOLD WINNER. Founded in 1978 by Rex Maughan, Forever living has transformed from into a huge player in the beauty industry, with a global team of clearly passionate and dedicated colleagues. They know the value of Aloe Vera’s properties and as a result, have created an amazing hand sanitizer which kills 99.9% of bacteria while still being gentle on the skin and giving a beautiful citrus scent.
So, that’s a closer look at some of our recent Gold Winners in the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards. Aren’t their stories fascinating? We’ll be back soon with more info about some other winners from our beauty awards such as our BEST HAND CREAM GOLD WINNER for Zoetic Lemongrass & Ylang Ylang CBD Hand Cream.
Until next time!
Bye bye from Daniel!
Some more winners from our beauty awards.... including Ayumi, Creightons, & Other Stories, FFS and St. Moriz
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.
Founded around 10 years ago by Sheilesh Shah (also known as Shi) who had already amassed a wealth of knowledge around plant and herbal based remedies from his father who used natural ingredients to provide traditional indian remedies to heal his patients. 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!
Ps - did you know that the entries close soon for the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards? Be sure to enter your green and clean brand by 30th May!
Until next time!
Daniel and the team at the Global Makeup Awards
Just a super quick update for those who haven't yet entered. The 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards close on 30th May, so you have until the end of this month to enter.
These awards celebrate the best in green and clean beauty. You'll see a range of categories such as for ethical, organic, natural or vegan beauty products. There is something for every beauty brand - from makeup to skincare, haircare to body care. We also have some fun ingredients based categories such as best 'honey' product or best 'charcoal' product.
Answers to some common FAQs which have been coming in.
There are no launch date requirements - this means the product doesn't have to be a new launch. This helps to keep things ethical as a brand can keep to one product and marketing materials.
We require 6 x product samples - these can be miniatures. If coming from outside of UK we ask you to put that these are PR samples as Brexit has caused a bit of chaos with shipping from outside of UK since January!
We don't require official certification. This as it can be expensive for smaller brands to provide and we want this green beauty awards to be accessible to beauty brands - big and small. Saying that - though we don't ask for official certification you can 1) absolutely show it if you have it 2) do ask you to enter categories you genuinely believe are relevant.
What does 'ethical' mean as a category? This is open to your interpretation. It needs to be green and clean - maybe low waste, or zero miles, or with a village kick-back scheme to help smaller communities. Maybe it is low carbon or maybe you re-plant trees in order to offset emissions.
In other news, our inaugural ASIA 2021 Global Makeup Awards will be announced this Thursday! We are so excited about celebrating Asian and Australian and New Zealand Beauty awards winners. Stay tuned!

Taking a look at some gold winners from the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards
Hi again everybody!
So in our last In The Spotlight blog we shared some background information about some of the Gold Winners in the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards Skincare categories. Today, we’d like to focus on some of the winners from the Make-Up categories. This beauty awards was truly competitive so it was great to see such a range of amazing high street and non high street beauty and makeup brands.
Let’s begin with Erborian who came out top in the category of Best Primer with their Pink Primer & Care. This awesome primer has the very convenient added bonus of also being an excellent moisturiser. This toner works amazingly with all different skin tones, (see this YouTube video); the main ingredients of the Pink Primer & Care are Japanese persimmon leaf extract (Diospyros kaki), Japanese Camellia seed oil (Camellia japonica), and Pumpkin seed oil (Curcubita pepo); all known for their antioxidant properties.
Founded in 2007, the Erborian Skin Care Therapy Franco-Korean brand blends the latest technologies with traditional Korean medicines with the goal of helping people to achieve perfect skin.
Let’s now take a look at Fluttery Light No.008 which was the BEST EYE PRODUCT GOLD WINNER for Eylure London. These beautifully hand-made lashes can be used up to five times and enhance lashes to give them a thicker and longer look.
Eylure was established in 1948 although by this point their lashes had already become firm favourites with such icons as Marlene Dietrich, Joan Collins, Ingrid Berman and Sophia Loren. This was due to the fact that the company’s founders were renowned make-up artists in the movie industry. They were also used to give Elizabeth Taylor her famous Cleopatra look. By the 1960’s, their lashes had become extremely popular with the general public
Next, we’ll look at our BEST FOUNDATION GOLD WINNER - Carter Beauty Miracle with their Measure Youth Boost Foundation. A wonderfully clean product, this foundation is fragrance-free and oil-free as well as being vegan friendly and PETA approved. It is enriched with vitamins C and E and also HYALURONIC ACID (HA), a naturally occuring substance in skin which helps to keep it hydrated.
Carter Beauty by Marissa Carter takes great pride and care in being Peta-approved while Marissa is adamant that her products must be of the highest quality yet always affordable. Furthermore, Marissa really knows her stuff and her blog is a really fantastic resource for us all! She shares a lot of really valuable expertise, its hard to believe that her beauty guides are even free! She could probably make a lot of money if she charged for them! Her Foundation 101 guide
Finally, our BEST CONCEALER GOLD WINNER was for Jane Iredale with the Enlighten Plus Under-Eye Concealer. This 100% cruelty free and vegan-friendly concealer is especially great for providing protection from the sun while also smoothing and depuffing the eyes. Jane started the brand over 25 years ago, long before anyone was talking about ‘Clean Beauty’. Her own values fit perfectly with that description though and after working with actors and finding that many make-up products were damaging to their skin, she set about creating makeup that is actually kind to the skin.
Well, there are four great brands to check out. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading as much as we have writing this blog. We’ll be back soon with another In The Spotlight of the best products from our beauty awards.
Until then, ciao!!!
