Winner of the Natural Health Beauty Awards Ethical Range 2013
Launched six years ago, the Natural Health Beauty Awards have become one the most eagerly awaited events in the holistic beauty world. The Natural Health Beauty Awards give recognition to the best organic and natural beauty products in the UK. We are therefore delighted to reveal that Weleda have been announced as winners of the Natural Health Beauty Awards Best Ethical Range. We didn't stop there however, here is the full list of awards we won at the Natural Health Beauty Awards.
Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion Wins Beauty Award
Beauty Shortlist Awards 2013
Health and beauty UK journalist Fiona Klonarides founded The Beauty Shortlist in the summer of 2009, and really, it’s what the name says. A shortlist of the best beauty brands and products on the market – whether that new beauty find is by a small, Cornish skincare brand or a big name French “laboratoire” range. It could be a new ultra-high performance, cell-renewing, science-based serum, or the simplest, purest of cleansers.
But it’s got to be a product that works, worth spending our money on. Which feels really good to use. Ideally clean, green and glamorous because The Beauty Shortlist naturally veers in an organic/wellbeing direction. Ethics are key – and so is cutting through hype and false promises.
The Top 25 listing is compiled each year from votes by industry insiders.
A total of 142 brands and 408 products entered this year’s Awards and
Sea Buckthorn was awarded WINNER of the Best Body Lotion category.
Rosemary Bath Milk and Citrus Body Oil were also Finalists in their categories, with Rosemary Bath milk being the 'Editors Personal Favourite'.
Two more sparkling awards for Arnica Massage Balm.
Arnica Massage Balm has been voted the WINNER in the 'Natural First Aid' category in the recent Natural Pharmacy Awards.
The same product also won Highly Commended in the latest CAM Lifestyle Awards, for Best Alternative Product.
Our Hero Product Skin Food!
Won Highly Commended in the Best Skin care and Natural Toiletries Category in the same Natural Pharmacy Awards.

It was a sparkling November 2012 for Weleda and the shimmering awards cabinet is bursting at the seams as we head towards the end of 2012, leaving Weleda very much a team of shiny, happy people.
The winners in the Mother & Baby awards are decided entirely from the scores and feedback that 'real' mums give each product after using it in their everyday lives for at least a week.
Earlier in that month Weleda’s fabulous new range of organic Body Lotions won Silver in the category Best Organic Launch in the beauty industry’s Pure Beauty Awards 2012.
This was the valued vote of beauty retailers, who put forward their favourites as the ‘insiders choice’ - the best quality products and the most popular best sellers.
Weleda’s new Body Lotions were hailed in the magazine: “Weleda has perfected the art of making a hydrating body lotion using only natural ingredients, free from synthetics of any kind including artificial fragrance, preservatives or parabens.”
And in a glittering November hat trick, Weleda’s new Citrus Refreshing Body Oil won Best Body Oil in the prestigious Elle Beauty Awards 2012.
Selected by an astute editorial team of clued-up beauty editors and experienced beauty professionals as one of their top beauty picks of 2012: “Zesty and invigorating, this is the perfect antidote to sluggish circulations.
Especially good to battle cellulite when applied after dry-brushing”. Praise indeed.

I had my baby three months ago and am really down about the marks around my abdomen. Will toning up improve the look of the? Unfortunately, the stomach is the last part of your body to tine up, as the deep abdominals and layers of stomach muscles have stretched and weakened as the foetus grows and your bump develops. The skin is literally stretched out over your growing stomach so it loses elasticity and sags and stretch marks are often a result. You are still early days and most mums, even many months post-baby, have some saggy skin. The best thing you can do at this time is to re-train your abs by ensuring you pull in your stomach muscles when you walk around, or perform any exercise, as these are great ways to begin to tighten them. Exercise may boost and improve circulation, but won’t necessarily eliminate stretch marks. Rubbing in a special massage oil three times a dy may also help reduce the appearance and keep the skin soft. Gurgle Tip: try Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil.

Health & Fitness Magazine, June 2012. Feature: Attack cellulite! If you‘re dreading baring all now the weather‘s warmer, it‘s time to step up your pre-holiday cellulite-busting routine. What they say? Feel alone in your quest to beat cellulite before your holiday? You’re not the only one. Research by beauty brand Thalgo reveals that 95 per cent of women suffer with the dreaded orange peel. Summertime always throws up the same problem – how can you minimise unsightly dimples before daring to bare on the beach?
First, it’s important to understand what cellulite is. It’s not simply fat, but is made up of damaged fat cells that are not being adequately supported by the skin’s fibres, due to poor circulation and poor lymphatic drainage. We know that drinking more water, cutting out processed and sugary foods and upping your exercise regime all help to reduce cellulite, but you can boost your efforts with products that support the process. Start each day with a good scrub.
If dry brushing isn’t your thing, try a detoxifying body scrub in the shower. Using a scrub on a regular basis will keep skin free from dead cells and prevent ingrowing hairs, too. Weleda’s Birch Body Scrub (2) (£9.50 for 150ml; weleda.co.uk) is our pick of the bunch. Reveal glowing and rejuvenated skin with this heavenly, citrus-scented scrub. Free from synthetic chemicals, the beeswax pearls and natural plant oils nourish the skin. Birch oil stimulates the circulatory system and tones, detoxifies and reduces water retention.
