Awarded cosmetics – part 3
awarded nordic natural cosmetics 2023

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!

GreenEtiq Denmark – Anti-Age & Moisture Cream SPF 30

“A pure, organic and vegan luxury cream with natural, gentle, effective and safe protection against both UVA and UVB rays, while at the same time all the wonderful ingredients, which are packed with vitamins.

This cream will care for your skin with an intense anti-aging effect as well as lots of moisture. All raw materials are mild but effective, which means that the cream can also be used for e.g. sensitive skin and rosacea.”

Heard from the jury:

“No white cast, no clogged pores, and incredible hydration. Great summer product!”
“In love with this sunscreen! Hydrating, easy to apply, and the lovely scent is a delightful bonus. My go-to SPF option now!”
“Great hydration! Replaced my regular moisturizer. A must-have in the summer skincare routine.”

Ljung of Lapland – Ansiktsvatten Rose Mist

“Organic rose flower water is moisturizing, cooling and astringent with a wonderful natural rose scent, suitable for all skin types and can be used for impure skin and acne.

Exclusive rose water, produced by steam distillation of roses and is 100% pure organic hydrolate, without added fragrance or preservative.

Whether you spend your days in a dehydrating environment or many hours in front of the computer, use the rose water as a refreshing facial shower to keep your skin hydrated.”

Heard from the jury:

“Very nice face mist! I’ve always liked rose water and this one did not disappoint! It had a nice scent and left my face and neck feeling very firm and tight. Used it morning and night and loved it!”
“Apart from an 11-year-old daughter stealing it from me constantly, I have nothing negative to say about this fantastic mist!”
“Really enjoyed this mist. Very lightweight and not over-powering, but still the scent is fabulous.”

NOBE – Forest Elixir Microbiome Strengthening Body Lotion

“NOBE Forest Elixir® Microbiome Strengthening Body Lotion is a deeply moisturizing body lotion containing innovative Re-Connecting Nature® forest microbial extract to support the well-being of the skin’s microbiome.

Developed and patented by the Finnish company Uute Scientific, forest microbial extract is the world’s first natural ingredient equivalent to the diverse and rich biodiversity of the forest.

Made from renewable sources, it has been scientifically proven to restore the skin’s natural microbiome balance, strengthen the skin’s protective barrier and enhance skin regeneration.

Forest microbial extract has also been shown to reduce redness and irritation and increase the production of anti-ageing collagen. All of this results in healthy, balanced and radiant skin.

Microbiome Strengthening Body Lotion has a rich, yet non-greasy and easily absorbed texture that leaves the skin soft and velvety smooth. The body lotion also contains nourishing shea butter and has a fresh, slightly forest-like scent.

Microbiome Strengthening Body Lotion is suitable for all skin types, especially for people living in cities who don’t get enough exposure to nature in their busy daily lives.

This product is certified COSMOS Natural by Ecocert and 99,34% of its ingredients are of natural origin.”

Heard from the jury:

“A LOVELY body lotion! And I NEEEEEED this scent in a perfume bottle, please NOBE!”
“Incredible body lotion, which everyone in my household tried to steal as well. The same amazing scent, the texture has such a lovely, soft feel to it and my body was hydrated for many, many hours, even the day after applying it. Really great on dry areas like feet, elbows, and knees as well.”
“A must-have. Loving NOBE. Feels like someone studied what’s best for my skin and delivered it.”
Forest Elixir® Microbiome Strengthening Body Lotion 150ml

Purodoré – Brightening Cream Exfoliator

“As an effective exfoliating product, the Brightening Cream Exfoliator works well to remove dead skin cells from the surface while promoting better absorption of other skin products.

This exfoliating cream moisturises, cleanses, and nourishes the skin, and is suitable for all skin types.

For added protection, the Brightening Cream Exfoliator also contains effective antioxidants to help shield the skin from harmful environmental factors.”

Heard from the jury:

“What a luxurious exfoliator, great for dry skin!”
“Loved this product! My skin feels amazing after use. One of my favourites for sure!”
“Just what I needed for my tired face. Saved it!”

WISE Organic Skincare – Night Balm Calming Rose

“WISE Night Balm Calming Rose is a nourishing, protective, and caring balm with exclusive genuine essential oils of Rose and Olibanum.

The balm strengthens fragile and dry skin and has a deep nurturing effect. It is suitable for all skin types, but especially mature and dry skin or rosacea.

A mix of natural plant oils such as rose hip oil, sweet almond oil, and shea butter saturates the skin and gives a beautiful glow.

WISE Night Balm Calming Rose contains no water that can freeze on the skin and therefore acts as a protective facade against harsh weather conditions, such as wind, snow, rain, and cold. It fits equally well day and night.

WISE Night Balm Calming Rose also counteracts UV damage and makes it easier for the skin to adjust to changes in climate. Dry indoor air combined with cold outdoors during winter often means dry skin. This balm provides excellent protection for those challenging winter conditions, on the ski slope, as well as on the beach.”

Heard from the jury:

“Very nice and hydrating as a night mask. Skin feels soft and nice the morning after.”
“Effective product! And with a nice scent!”
“I love the feel of this product, super rich and works wonders as an overnight treatment!”
