Winners of 2017 Sustainable Beauty Awards announced

The winners of the 2017 Sustainable Beauty Awards were announced last week at a dedicated awards ceremony in Paris. Organised by Ecovia Intelligence (formerly known as Organic Monitor), the awards give recognition to organisations pushing the boundaries of sustainability in the beauty industry.

From over 100 entries, a winner and runner-up were selected for each award category. The jury comprised executives from an ingredient firm, natural food retailer, formulation company, natural cosmetics association, media agency, and research firm.

The winners are:

  • Green Formulations. Alteya Organics (Bulgaria) with its Rose Jasminium product range. The certified organic skin care range is based on the Bulgarian Rose, grown according to organic practices in the Rose Valley. Trilogy Natural Products (New Zealand) is runner-up with its range of certified organic rosehip oil products.
  • Sustainable Packaging. Sulapac (Finland) is winner with its range of premium packaging made from sustainable materials. The packaging is made from renewable wood chips taken from sustainable managed forests, as well as other biodegradable materials.
