Entries for the Free From Skincare Awards 2023 now open

Entries are now open for the 12th Free From Skincare Awards, which celebrate cosmetic products from across Europe that are “free from” some of the allergens and other ingredients that many consumers want or need to avoid.

There are 16 product categories for 2023, including Hair Care, Men's Grooming, Deodorants, Face Care, and Problem Skin. In addition, special awards will be given for Best Brand, Free From Achievement, Best Labeling, and the new Digital Presence award, which recognises brands for their web and social media excellence.

“Our awards are open to brands large and small,” says Awards' Director Alex Gazzola. “We receive entries from large multi-national companies and small one-woman soap-makers operating from their garden sheds. We pride ourselves on attracting a diverse entry field, with something for everyone, no matter which ingredients they avoid.”

All participants are individually welcomed across the awards' social media channels before going through the same rigorous testing and judging process to ensure fairness and a level playing field.

Following the announcement of the results in the summer, brands receive detailed feedback on their entries, which the organisers describe as one of the most popular and valuable benefits of the awards for entrants.

The deadline for submissions is March 6th. Finalists are announced in May and the winners in June.
