Scandinavia’s best products and personalities in ‘green beauty’ were announced last week at a dedicated natural beauty awards ceremony at Eco Life Scandinavia – Scandinavia’s biggest event for the natural and organic trade.

Held at MalmöMässan, in Sweden on 13 November, the annual awards (in partnership with NOC Sweden) reward individuals who, in their work and/or private life have contributed to an increased use of green beauty products in Scandinavia.   This, combined with the beauty categories in the Natural & Organic Awards Scandinavia, celebrate the businesses, people and innovations that are driving the natural and organic beauty industry forward.

Voted by an expert judging panel, the winners were announced in the Natural Beauty Theatre and were presented by TV-personality Tony Irving (best known as the jury chairman from TV4’s Let’s Dance) and Rosie Greenaway, editor of Natural Beauty News and Natural Products News.

“It’s thrilling to see how the green and sustainable beauty sector is thriving, and of course the Scandinavian market is at the core of that boom.  Judging and presenting the Who’s Who in Green Beauty Scandinavia each year gives me a chance to learn more about the individuals responsible for the category’s best innovation, and it’s always such a pleasure to meet so many inspiring finalists. Congratulations to all who made this year’s list,” says Rosie Greenaway.

Rosenserien/Sweden Eco and Nurme have won top marks with visitors in the Natural Beauty Product Awards, while Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph, CEO of Rudolph Care (and host on TV2’s ‘Wild with dance’ in 2005) landed the top spot in this year’s Who’s Who in Green Beauty Scandinavia.
