The Clean Beauty Awards took place on Friday, March 27 at The Green Living Show – Canada’s largest consumer show dedicated to healthy living. Leading industry expert judges presented 12 awards from a list of over 100 entrants.
The winners are …
I have to say that I’ve heard of all of these brands. Though I haven’t tried all of them. But of the brands I have tried, I wholeheartedly agree that besides being clean, they are great quality. One such brand is Pure Anada which won for Pressed Mineral Eye Colour. Pure Anada makes some great eyeshadows, blush and skincare which are all eco-friendly.You can read my reviews on Pure Anada’s products here. I’m also familiar with MarieNatie which won for All Natural Eyeliner. I’ve used MarieNatie‘s lip gloss, eyeshadows and foundations. Below is a picture of me wearing MarieNatie‘s foundation and nothing else on my face.
Penny Lane Organics is a great little company operating out of rural Ontario which was founded by two sisters. I’ve used Penny Lane Organics lip balm in Mango. You can read my review of their lip balm here.
Carina Organics makes an amazing natural deodorant which is one I keep coming back to over and over again. Their Botanical Therapeutic Deodorant made it to my Best Natural Deodorants list and you’ll often see this deodorant listed in my empties post.
The Clean Beauty Awards celebrates the top performing clean beauty products and brands for the year, and not only shines light on safer skincare and makeup options for consumers, but also gives independent brands a trusted platform to reach consumers. All the nominees are free from questionable ingredients (like sodium lauryl sulfates, parabens, fragrance, etc), and were tested based on performance by an independent panel of judges.
The 2015 nominees were determined based on rankings by 15 independent judges including environmental experts: environmental journalist and author Adria Vasil, eco producer and The Marilyn Denis Show eco expert Candice Batista, international makeup artist and founder of the Green Beauty Team Kristen Arnett, as well as beauty experts such as FAJO Magazine editor-in-chief Hannah Yakobi and Anokhi Magazine beauty editor Rosemina Nazarali.
