Good afternoon from London where spring is trying its best to nudge its way out in front of winter
but not very successfully (so far)!
Today I want to shine a spotlight on some of our previous winners.
SKOGEN had a great year last year, winning two gold awards and one silver for their Jasmine
Collection moisturiser and eye-cream products.
“Skogen” means “forest” in Swedish and I think this name perfectly captures the company’s ethos
which is to use all-natural ingredients and work in an environmentally friendly way while creating
top-quality beauty products. SKOGEN is based in New York and Sweden and has placed itself at the
forefront of high-end beauty product brands.
They are also featured in this month’s British edition of VOGUE magazine see online version here -

the perfect tanner, Rose and Caramel’s initial breakthrough came with their launch of Nudity
Aerosol. Since then they have gone from strength to strength. A busy duo, Rose and Caramel have
recently been in Los Angeles, mingling with some huge influencers and visiting the LA Pretty Little

FOREO were worthy winners of our Best Beauty Electrical Device Gold Award for their LUNA 3
Despite the fact that six years ago the company consisted of just two employees, Foreo has
experienced amazing growth and success and now employs over 3000 people across the globe. The
company was founded in Sweden and takes great pride in hiring staff from a range of backgrounds,
which complements the company’s innovative approach and unconventional yet ground-breaking
way of pushing forward technological solutions.

The final company which we want to highlight today is Dr Lipp, producers of 100% (not 99%) natural
products. Founded by the infuriatingly multi-talented and stunningly beautiful Pontine, while she
was working in Milan. Now based in both West London and a sweet Verbier chalet, Pontine searched
high and low for a lip balm which would meet her needs until she stumbled upon nipple balm as the
perfect way to keep her skin in prime condition.
