As we are getting ready for the European Natural Beauty Awards 2023, what better time to get to know all the nominated cosmetics of the year?

To avoid the presentation of the nominees becoming one heavy manual (even though we know it would be a good one!), we divided the nominee cosmetics into four parts. In this part of our nominee blog series, you can familiarize yourself with 16 incredible nominees.

If you want to learn even more about a certain nominee product or the brand behind the craftmanship, click the link mentioned after the description. We welcome you all to celebrate European Natural Beauty with us!

Details of the products are written as the brands present them.


BEEKI SKINCARE – Sacred Glow – Saffron, Myrrha & Sandalwood Face Oil

“Our superhero facial oil, Sacred Glow, is created to provide glow, deep nourishment and care for body and mind. It is uplifting and gives a feeling of inner strength. The oil provides a balanced calm and is perfect for meditation and to promote better sleep.

Sacred Glow works deep into the skin and adds plenty of nourishment without clogging the pores. The oil is quickly absorbed and leaves a velvety smooth surface. The skin stays soft and supple all day, and it also doesn’t feel tight and dry after a long night.

The oil contains ingredients known to have a revitalizing effect, stimulate collagen production, increase skin elasticity, and prevent lines, wrinkles, age spots and other signs of ageing.

It is rich in vitamin E and Omega 3, 6 and 9, and has a high content of antioxidants that protect the skin against free radicals from e.g., UV radiation and pollution. Vital nutrients give the skin an even skin tone and lots of glow.

The oil contains beeswax from our own bees. It provides a natural protective layer and helps keep the skin moist, soft, and smooth throughout the day and night.”

KUMÃRI – Anti-Wrinkle Serum

“KUMÃRI’s Anti-Wrinkle Serum activates your skin cells and plumps them up to reduce wrinkles and make your skin look youthful and fresh.

The serum supports the natural regeneration of your skin to keep it healthy and radiant. With its intense blend of 85% fresh organic Aloe Vera plant juice, Edelweiss, and Paracress, this serum promotes a smooth skin texture and a fresh, radiant complexion.

Our Aloe Vera grows under full sun and slowly develops a wealth of nutrients in its leaves. This high-quality juice is not mass-produced but respects the plant’s natural growth cycle.

Our Aloe Vera plant juice comes from controlled organic and sustainable farming in various countries to provide you with the best that nature has to offer. The over 160 essential nutrients in Aloe juice are the key to its effectiveness, both for your health and your beauty. And it’s this power that we harness in our KUMARI products: Instead of water, we use fresh organic Aloe Vera juice in all our skincare products.

Edelweiss is one of the most well-known Alpine flowers and is often seen as a symbol of untouched nature and pure mountain air. But it’s not just beautiful to look at. Edelweiss contains high concentrations of antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from harmful environmental factors.

It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce skin irritation and promote skin health. In our Anti-Wrinkle Serum, we harness the power of Edelweiss to nourish, protect, and rejuvenate your skin.

Expression lines often result from unconscious muscle contractions in facial skin. The Botulinum-like effect of Gatuline, an ingredient derived from Paracress, relaxes facial muscles and visually reduces lines and wrinkles.

Fresh organic Aloe Vera plant juice, jojoba oil, and hyaluronic acid provide moisture, maintain the skin’s moisture balance, and gently tighten it in this way.”

BEAUTY FOR ASHES – Luxury Cleansing Foam

“Luxury Cleansing foam is Finland’s first fermented cleansing foam developed for cleaning skin and eyelash extensions. The highest quality natural ingredients have been selected for the cleansing foam, and thus it can be called a natural cosmetic product.

The cleansing foam caresses your skin, leaving it soft and nourished. If you use eyelash extensions, the cleansing foam helps to keep your eyelashes healthy and strong. As we know that probiotics are important for our skin, we wanted to develop a cleansing foam that contains probiotics. That’s why we chose to ferment watermelon as one of the ingredients.

Bamboo maintains the moisture balance of the skin, and it contains a lot of silicon oxide, which promotes the formation of collagen and fights against the signs of aging. Bamboo is rich in antioxidants, it soothes and moisturizes.

Rice protein contains inisitol, which has a strengthening and damage-repairing effect. Amino acids caress the hair follicle and make the eyelashes shiny without making them slippery.

Vegan silk protein treats and moisturizes sensitive skin, soothes irritated skin, and has the ability to preserve the natural moisture of the skin and eyelashes.
