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 12 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.

L:A BRUKET – 279 Replenishing Serum

“L:A Bruket’s 279 Replenishing serum acts on the skin’s regeneration process: firming, plumping, preventing the signs of ageing, and hydrating all skin types, especially those lacking elasticity, radiance, and evenness.

Able to adapt to the harshest environments, moss is a powerful plant. It has the ability to preserve water reserves and fight against climatic stress, for a luminous complexion.

The extract of green algae (Ulva latuca), which grows in the cold waters of the Kattegat sea, firms the skin and improves the elasticity of the facial contour. Acting on the extracellular matrix, it stimulates the synthesis of collagen, responsible for the elasticity of the skin, improves the hyaluronic acid binding, and prevents its degradation.

These two biotechnological actives are combined with ascorbyl glucoside, a stable vitamin C derivative, and two vegetal hyaluronic acids to hydrate all skin layers: the high molecular weight offers immediate visible hydration whilst the low molecular weight has a deep plumping effect.”
