Nordic Natural Beauty Awards 2023 were organized on the awards’ Instagram account on Thursday, October 26, 2023. The competition was tight in all of the categories, proving that all the nominees are just incredible.
We wanted to take a deeper look at the awarded cosmetics and why they specifically make a great addition to anyone’s beauty routine. To avoid the list becoming one heavy manual (even though we know it would be a good one!), we divided the awarded cosmetics into six parts. Let’s get to it!
(To learn more about a specific product, click the title text of the product!)
“Alonia’s B. Nourishing Conditioner is a nourishing and moisturizing conditioner of shea butter and apricot oil.
It contains hydrolyzed proteins from kale, lemon, carrot and oat. Hydrolyzed, so that all beautiful proteins are used in the best way.
The conditioner contains also radish root fermentation to get the best bacterial balance for a scalp.
All Alonia’s hair care products are unscented, but you can add a few drops of our aromatherapeutic essential oil blends to the conditioner if you wish.”
Heard from the jury:“My hair looks healthy and shiny after using the conditioner. It gives my hair moisture without weighing it down.”
“Pleasant conditioner, and I especially enjoyed adding the fragrance myself, nice concept!”
“Very nice concept playing with the scent, I appreciated that I was able to regulate the strength of the scent this way!”
“Hydrating and Protecting Face Cream helps to improve skins own protective barrier.
Ceramide contained in the product helps to maintain the structure of the lipid barrier and protects the skin from aging and UV-radiation.
