Scandinavian Beauty Awards – Spotlight on past Winners
So, as you know, last December we announced the winners of the 2019 Scandinavian Beauty Awards.
Today I would like to shine a spotlight on some of the winners. We’ll delve a little more into who
they are and what their mission is and we’ll also take a look at their products.
FOREO deservedly won the Gold Award for Best Innovative Beauty Product at last year’s
Scandinavian Beauty Awards. They also took home the silver award for Best Scandinavian Beauty
Brand. Let me tell you a little more about them!
Just six years ago Foreo consisted of just two Swedish-based employees, would you believe that the
company now consists of more than 3,000 people all over the world. With over 20 million products
shipped, these are certainly exciting times at the company!
The company approach is attain expert level though action and experimentation and so far it’s
working having achieved great success with the introduction of the LUN line of T-sonic facial
cleansing and anti-aging devices, they are now launching their impressive ISS— the first ever
silicone electric toothbrush.
The UFO smart mask treatment is the result of an ingenious combination of advanced dermal
technologies with Korean mask formulas. It is a 90-second mask treatment combining device-
activated formulas with heating, cooling, and T-Sonic pulsations. It works fantastically on all skins
types and is often particular interest to those looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles, pores, and
dullness and uneven texture.
It also brightens your complexion and kills the bacteria which can cause acne. There is a pre-
programmed setting with the perfect temperature and pulsation intensity, this smart mask
treatment is a fast and effective facial treatment which will transform not only your complexion but
also your beauty regime.
Winners of our Best Cleanser Gold Award were BAIE BOTANIQUE with their fantastic Rose &
Cupuacu Enzyme Cleaner. They also won the Best Vegan Brand Award.
The company, founded by Sophie Oliver, a professional make-up artist with over 20 years’
experience in the beauty industry and a follower of a plant-based lifestyle. At Baie Boutique, Sophie
has achieved something really wonderful by combining her professional enthusiasm with her
personal lifestyle and passion to create a skincare range which is full of natural ingredients and
avoids preservatives and additional ingredients wherever necessary.
In a recent blog post (https://www.baiebotanique.com/blogs/baie-blog/introducing-rose-renew-
rose-and-cupuacu-enzyme-cleanser) – Baie Botanique share some really fascinating extra
information on the rose and cupuacu enzyme cleanser. The cleanser (82.65% Organic | 100% Natural
| PETA certified Vegan and Cruelty-free) contains rosewater, rose absolute and rosehip oil,
ingredients which have been used in beauty regimes for thousands of years and are known to have
been trusted by Cleopatra and, more recently, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate.
I have to say it’s a real privilege to be able to share a nit more information with you about our
previous winners. These companies are clearly built on foundations of passion and desire to help not
only people with their skincare, but also to do it in an ethically sound way. This certainly seems to be
the direction the industry is moving in and entries to our Green Beauty Awards are coming in thick
and fast. If your company would like to take part, please don’t hesitate to enter. Entries are open
2020 Green Global Beauty Awards - and an update on our team and industry
Hi there everybody! This is Dan with another blog from Italy lockdown!
In a minute I want to tell you some exciting news about the imminent launch of the 2020 Green
Global Beauty Awards but first here’s a little update from life in lockdown in the Brescia region of
Italy, one of the areas hit hardest by coronavirus.
Strangely, after over three weeks I feel like I’m getting used to this staying at home malarkey. It’s
definitely a sad time for all of us in Italy and tragic that so many people are losing loved ones.
However, it’s important for us to all stay fit, healthy and, most of all, positive during these
challenging and uncertain times. Some positives which I have taken are:
Doing online fitness classes with my old outdoor fitness gang from London. We used to train
together in the park at 6:30am three times a week, rain or shine. In fact, I remember once after
training through a huge downpour, that the local rugby coach furiously called all his players from the
park to demand why they couldn’t turn up to their training session while we all could! Anyway,
we’ve been training together online and its been great to see friends who I haven’t seen for four
Online Poker – A little less healthy but last night I had so much fun playing with my old school friends
online. We even did it in fancy dress. I’m kind of enjoying experimenting with the freedom lockdown
fashion gives. Anything goes!
Acting – Haha! A close friend and I are also practicing our (extremely) amateur acting skills through
facetime. We’re currently trying to work out what the heck is going on in Waiting for Godot.
Music – Well, I always have time for music but I’m enjoying learning new songs on the ukulele and
trying some beginner flamenco guitar techniques.
Another reported consequence from lockdown has been greatly reduced pollution and reduced
human impact on nature. Sadly, Brescia is one of the most polluted cities in Europe. I’m lucky to live
outside of the city and near the beautiful Lake Garda but the traffic can still get extremely bad here,
especially during the summer with a high volume of tourists and very few alternate route to get
between the towns on the lake.
The environment has been on everybody’s mind for quite a few years, but Greta’s recent campaign
has brought it even more to the forefront. Such a huge achievement!
We’ve already seen a lot of our previous award winners have business models which promote green
practices and this April we will launch the 2020 Green Global Beauty Awards. Entries open April 1 st
and these awards are obviously exclusively for green/clean brands. The Global Green Beauty Awards comes under the umbrella of the Global Makeup Awards for those brands who want to reflect their greener cleaner side with an awards specifically dedicated at their efforts.
With attitudes changing and people wishing to have a more eco conscious beauty regime, we couldn't think of a better way to recognize industry experts than with the 2020 Global Green Beauty Awards. Brands are welcome to enter both the Green Awards and the Global Makeup Awards.
There will also be categories for organic products, reflecting the demand from customers to use
more ethical skincare products on their skin. These awards are open to brands across the globe!
Don’t hesitate to enter if your brand strives to create ethical and environmentally friendly products!
That’s all for now folks but I’ll update you again soon! Until then, stay safe!
