The Best Natural Brand In The UK

Drumroll please…. Elemental Herbology picked up this award!

Founded in 2008, Elemental Herbology combines a passion for plant-based beauty with traditional Chinese medicine. They believe that wellness can only be achieved when the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water) are balanced. That’s why they use innovative technology and natural botanicals to transform your skin and improve your wellbeing.

Better yet, all of their ingredients are sustainably sourced by reputable suppliers, and 99% of their plastic and paper packaging is recyclable. Their products are also cruelty-free and free from synthetic fragrances, artificial colours, SLS, parabens and mineral oils.

What Product Should I Try?

If you want to give this brand a try, I’d opt for their Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator SPF8. It is an anti-ageing moisturiser that combines antioxidants, marine actives and hydrating botanicals to plump, repair and moisturise your skin. It’s had rave reviews on lookfantastic!

The Best Sustainable Brand

Get ready to applaud… Neal’s Yard Remedies was named best sustainable brand!

Established in 1981, Neal’s Yard Remedies started as a small apothecary in Covent Garden and has since grown into one of the most sustainable brands out there. Whenever possible, they use organic ingredients that are kind to the earth and even kinder to your skin. Plus, their herbs, botanicals and essential oils are all ethically sourced too, then hand-blended into nourishing formulas.

What Product Should I Try?

For those of you who haven’t tried a Neal’s Yard Remedies product before, I’d recommend their Vitamin E and Avocado Night Cream. Blending avocado, wheat germ and almond oil with calming herbal extracts, this rich cream is deeply nourishing and moisturising. Better yet, it has a soothing scent that sends you into a restful sleep. You’ll wake up with hydrated, radiant skin and feel re-energised.

The Best Zero Waste Beauty Brand

Do you hear crowds cheering? That’s because Dr Jackson’s was awarded best zero waste beauty brand.

A sustainable, science-led cosmetics company, Dr Jackson’s creates natural, clean, safe and effective skincare products. They combine over 30 years of scientific research to make the most of natural and ethically-sourced ingredients. Plus, they avoid plastics as much as possible, only use recyclable boxes, and pressure suppliers to reduce their carbon footprint. No wonder they won the best zero waste beauty brand category!

What Product Should I Try?

Want to sample one of their products? Try their Natural Products 05 Face and Eye Essence. It’s a lightweight serum that is enriched with Aloe leaf juice, kigela fruit extract, baobab seed oil, Roman chamomile flower and damask rose water to hydrate and firm the delicate skin around your eye area. It is also formulated with vitamin C to give your complexion a brighter and more youthful glow.

The Best Innovative And Recyclable Packaging

A standing ovation for REN Skincare please, they won the Best Beauty Brand Packaging Innovation/Recycling Award.

REN have partnered with TerraCycle to develop bottles that are not only 100% recyclable but also made from 20% ocean plastic. Their tubes are also made from post-consumer recycled plastic and designed to be recycled over and over again. Better yet, they’ve partnered with Loop to launch their refillable glass bottle initiative which encourages consumers to return their glass bottles to be refilled and reused.

What Product Should I Try?

If you haven’t tried a REN product yet, then I’d recommend giving this best-seller a whirl. Their Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic combines lactic acid with willow bark extract to exfoliate your skin, wipe away dead cells and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. You just need to sweep a cotton pad saturated in tonic over your complexion to make it look brighter, smoother and clearer.

These are just some of the winners from the Beauty Shortlist And Wellbeing Awards. You can check out the full list here.
