Founder of The Beauty Shortlist, Fiona Klonarides comments:
“These Awards are not easy to win. Over 600 brands entered for 2018 and judging took place over a 6 month period, from early September through to February. These awards are completely independent – there’s no public vote, no ads, no sponsors. There are well over a hundred winners, its of beautiful, results-driven, feel-good, effective products to discover and fall in love with, across beauty, health and grooming. All tried, tested, loved and recommended by our judging panels.
British, Scandinavian, Australian and US brands have emerged as this year’s biggest Beauty Shortlist winners. Australia is ahead of us on the clean beauty front from an international perspective, while New York and California have been pioneering that trend in the US, and Scandinavia in Europe.”
Weleda’s Managing Director, Jayn Sterland was especially thrilled that the company has been recognised (again) for Best Fair Trade/Sustainable Brand, commenting:
“We are so honoured to win the Sustainable Award for a fifth consecutive year! Sustainably sourced, fairly traded ingredients are the heard and soul of our business. Weleda was the first European beauty brand to become a member of the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) and sustainability remains a primary focus for Weleda.”
