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!)
“The ONE Facial Oil will give you a healthier skin with less inflammation, more glow, more moist, higher elasticity and firmess. We achieve this by adding the perfect amount of CBD and CBG oil together with an MCT oil.”
Heard from the jury:“This is the ONE for me. It made my skin feel amazing. The only problem was that I used it too fast. Thank you!”
“Thoroughly lovely product, from the low-key colours of the simple design to the quality of the oil. A very nice understated scent, not intrusive at all. Great for a gua sha routine.”
“A product that speaks for itself – my skin loves it, and so do I. Overall, fantastic!”
“Our body balm is made from the finest raw materials available, such as shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, glycerin, avocado oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E and a dash of the loveliest oils to add fragrance.
In the product, we have only added ingredients that the skin can take advantage of – they have been carefully selected to give the best care for your skin.”
Heard from the jury:“High rating on this one. The citrus scent is amazing!”
“What a lovely balm. A true winner!”
“I love the scent. The packaging feels luxurious and so does the balm. It melts into the skin and feels very nourishing and calming.”
“NOBE Forest Elixir® Microbiome Enriching Gel Moisturizer is a lightweight gel cream 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 Enriching Gel Moisturizer also contains skin-identical ingredients such as squalane and sodium PCA, which hydrate the skin, support its barrier function and make it soft.
The fast-absorbing moisturizer has a fresh, slightly forest-like scent. Microbiome Enriching Gel Moisturizer 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 99,28% of its ingredients are of natural origin.”
Heard from the jury:“Pure joy! My skin drank this elixir like water from a forest well, I’ve already re-bought it in-store. Great texture that absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves a very hydrated feel. Definitely one of this year’s top 3 products for me.”
“This one is my favorite product this year! I have never smelled a more incredible product. The scent is hard to describe, but it’s so fresh and forest-like. Everyone in my household even tried to steal this from me, because they all loved it so much. The texture is amazing and my skin and neck have never felt more tight, firm, and soft at the same time.”
“NOBE is my new favorite line. Their products work so well on the skin. Thank you for the introduction!”
“Our vegan cream has a delicious consistency that is easy to apply and is quickly absorbed into the skin.
The cream is made from Norwegian bladderwrack to provide nourishment, and contains, among other things, shea butter to nurture and protect.
It has a good and authentic aroma, which smells sweet like lemon and honey – and clean like herbs and ginger. And yes, you guessed it, the tube is recyclable, and 99% of its contents are natural.”
Heard from the jury:“My hands are so soft and smell amazing. It feels like a treat every time I’m using it.”
“Love it. A must-have for the hands. And it all feels so good when it’s so natural. The scent is lovely and the hands are hydrated for a long time.”
“A favorite! Feels exactly how I want a hand cream to feel! Cute design too!”
“My Beautiful Zen Curls Conditioner is a nurturing and gentle fragrance-free conditioner for all hair types.
It improves the moisture balance and brings shine and softness to your hair. It makes your hair more manageable and prevents split ends.
Cucumber extract is rich in nutrients, containing amino acids, fatty acids that refresh your hair.
Burdock extract moisturizes the hair.
Malva extract contains plenty of nutrients that support hair well-being. It binds moisture to your hair and protects it from environmental pollution and UV radiation.
Betaine moisturizes and reduces static electricity and makes hair easy to comb, soft, and shiny.”
Heard from the jury:“Love love love this conditioner! Makes my hair feel so amazing!”
“Great conditioner! It did everything I needed it to and I loved the packaging too.”
“Left my hair feeling soft and fresh, lovely!”
“WISE Jojoba Face Scrub’s main task is to make the skin fresh, smooth, and deep clean, to give a beautiful glow and make the skin more receptive to nutrition and moisture.
The peeling also stimulates both cell renewal and microcirculation, which gives a healthy complexion and a smooth skin surface.
The active peeling ingredient is soft jojoba wax grains that very gently do their job on the sensitive skin surface and remove dead skin cells, blocking sebum and harmful bacteria without disturbing the skin’s important microbiome.
Jojoba Face Scrub also contains sunflower oil and is rich in vitamin E, beta-carotene, and Omega 6 and 9, which calms inflammation, balances sebum production, and protects against free radicals, pure luxury for the skin.
Palmarosa and juniper essential oils provide an antibacterial effect and a fresh scent that lifts the mind.”
Heard from the jury:“It makes me happy every time I use this scrub. It feels very luxurious. Gentle but still has a little kick that makes my skin feel very clean and free of impurities.”
“Great scrub! It exfoliates very well without dryness or irritation.”
“Gentle but with great effect!”
