FreeFrom Skincare Awards

Shortlist 2017

The products shortlisted below are the strongest performing entrants in the 2017 FreeFrom Skincare Awards, following a two-month period of evaluation by an almost 100-strong team of dedicated Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible and Skins Matter testers, each with sensitive or reactive skin, or with a specific interest in natural, organic and ‘free from’ skincare.

From these products, our expert judging panels will choose Gold, Silver and Bronze medallists, in each category, plus an overall winner, to be announced at the Love Natural Love You show (book your free tickets here) on 7th July 2017 at Olympia.
