Another GOLD for ANNWYN Botanicals

Updated: Jul 31, 2021

ANNWYN Botanicals is over the moon to tell you we have won a GOLD

medal in the Annual Free From Skincare Awards. Category 4: Body Care (Leave

On). We won with our Indulgent Body Crème with Mango & Ylang Ylang


The Europe-wide Awards were founded to encourage and reward

manufacturers of skincare products that are ‘free from’ many of the

allergens, preservatives, additives and fragrances associated with skin

sensitivities, allergies, and ethical, environmental and health concerns.

We still can’ t believe we’ve won GOLD again; as you may remember our

Exfoliating Cleanser with Papaya, Soft Citrus & Herb won a GOLD in last

year’s awards, and we didn’t dare to believe we could be so fortunate

again. This Body Crème is one of our very favourite products though;

rich and sensually fragranced, with a high % of organic ingredients, it is

a rather luxurious formulation, containing skin-softening mango butter

and hydrating baobab seed oil. Non-greasy and packed with highly

moisturising botanical extracts, combining with an exotic fragrance blend

of ylang ylang flowers, sweet orange, palmarosa and a hint of patchouli

essential oils.

The announcements were made on 7 July, and followed a long judging

process which included a rigorous month-long assessment by four

experienced skincare testers, and concluded with round-table expert

judging sessions.

We can’t resist sharing some of the judges’ comments with you, and we

can’t thank the judges themselves enough for their enthusiasm and

encouragement after such a tough year.

Here are some of their comments:

“A pot of thick and creamy deliciousness! Melts as soon as you

start to massage it into the skin. Light floral scent which is

uplifting and authentic but not overpowering. Texture is just

perfect. It massages into skin like a dream and skin absorbs it

quickly. It doesn’t drag, feels comforting and is extremely

hydrating. Skin is left plumped and not in the slightest sticky. The

condition of skin improved dramatically over the course of the

month. I loved how soft and comforted it felt while using this.”

“Has made my skin feel soft, smooth and moisturised. It’s lovely

and thick, so very nourishing. The whipped nature of the cream is

indulgent and luxurious — this was my favourite element of the

product and made me excited to use it each day. Even towards

the end of the jar, the cream retained its lightness and didn’t

deflate or become runny. I loved the texture.”

“Skin adored the cream from the first moment: no itching, no

harsh rubbing just a gentle feeling of peace and protection for the

dry bits like my ‘crocodile legs’. The fragrance is so light and

delicate and uplifting. The more a used this cream the more I fell

in love with it.  So, so gentle yet quiet astonishingly

effective. Total adoration for this wonderful body cream: doesn’t

make any extravagant claims or promises; it just relies on the very

finest ingredients and lot of love and care in the

manufacturing. Nothing could, or should, ever be done to this

magnificent cream. Perfection. This is how I want my skin to feel

and smell for all time.”
