Qsilica Remove Makeup and Grime Cleansing Gel Wins Best SkinCare Product & Best Face Care Product at 2012 FreeFrom Skin Awards, London


Qsilica Remove Makeup and Grime Cleansing Gel, based on coconut and sugar extracts, and jojoba seed, avocado, lavender and sandalwood oils, has today taken top prize in the inaugural FreeFrom Skincare Awards, sponsored by NATorigin. ‘A unique and stand-out product – it does exactly what it promises and leaves your face squeaky clean, smelling great – and well moisturised – absolutely love it’ was the comment of one of the FreeFrom Skin Award judges.

Qsilica Remove Makeup and Grime Cleansing Gel, the Gold winner in the Face Care category, beat off competition from Fresh Therapies’ Eden Natural Nail Polish Remover (Gold winner of Make up Category) and Spiezia’s Calendula Ointment (Gold winner of Body and Hair Care category) for the overall trophy.

The awards were presented at The Allergy + FreeFrom Show at Olympia, by ‘Imperfectly Natural’ beauty and holistic health guru, Janey Lee Grace. Peter Harwood, Co Founder & Managing Director of Planet Health was on hand to accept the award for overall winner.

The announcements followed a three-stage judging process which culminated in a rigorous month-long assessment by testers recruited by the FreeFrom Skincare Awards’ associates, the Green Beauty Bible.

“The quality of shortlisted candidates was exceptionally high,” said Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, editor of SkinsMatter.com. “Some of our testers discovered genuinely life-changing products while others found good solutions for long-term scarring, acne and eczema problems.”
