Free From Skin Care Awards Village Green Soaps

FFSA 16 Entrant Hi-Res[1]

I am so thrilled to be able to tell you know that Village Green Soaps have officially entered and been accepted into the Free From Skin Care Awards 2016.  This is a first for us here at Village Green Soaps as we have never felt brave enough to try anything like this before.  However this year we felt positive after lots of lovely comments about our soaps and products we decided the time was right.  We decided we would enter our Gardeners soap and our Natural 100% Organic Lavender Lip Balm.

For those of you who don’t know the Free From Skin Care awards showcase natural products that exclude artificial fragrances, chemicals, artificial additives and allergens that can cause skin irritations and worries for people with sensitive skins.    The awards are open to everyone whether they are small artisans to larger beauty manufacturers and are initially judged by a panel of experts who give them a month of ‘real life’ testing as they say.   A shortlist is then drawn up for those lucky enough to be entered into the final.  Its quite prestigeous honor to win – I guess you could compare them to the Oscars!

We have absolutely no idea how far we will go in the process but at this time it was a huge achievement to pass the first hurdle.

So wish us luck and keep everything crossed for us!

We were back at the Corn Hall Market in Cirencester last weekend and it was great to see so many of you.  We aren’t there this month but will be back in May so look forward to seeing our regulars then.  I will update the events page shortly which will give a full listing of where we are.

If you see us out and about do say hello!
