The Natural Beauty Retail Awards are moving from November to April, to coincide with Natural Beauty & Spa, part of Natural & Organic Products Europe.
Designed to recognise and celebrate the importance that a great retail experience plays in growing the organic and natural beauty market, the revamped awards will now take place at ExCeL London, on Monday 23 April 2018.
The awards have been expanded for 2018 to also recognise the best new beauty products launching on to the market, incorporating the beauty product categories of the Natural & Organic Awards.
Commenting on the move Carol Dunning, event director of Natural & Organic Products Europe, says: “We’re delighted to welcome the Natural Beauty Retail Awards to the show. The exhibition is the launch pad for so many fabulous new natural and organic beauty products. To celebrate the retailers who stock these products at the event where the industry truly comes to together each year, is a perfect fit.”
Previous winners include Debenhams, Holland & Barrett, Waitrose, Neal’s Yard Remedies, Beauty Kitchen, Content Beauty & Wellbeing, and Lovelula.com.
Dominic Roberjot, publisher of Natural Beauty News, says: “We created the Natural Beauty Retail Awards in 2015, as there was nothing which recognised the vital role retailers play in bringing natural and organic beauty brands to consumers. To be able to celebrate great retailers and the brands they are ultimately stocking in one place, was just too good of an opportunity to miss.”
Retailers can enter via the Natural Beauty News website – www.naturalbeautynews.co.uk. All entries will then be judged by a panel of industry experts.
Categories include: Best Department Store, Best Retail Chain, Best Supermarket, Best Branded Store, Best Online Retailer, and Best Independent Store.
The closing date for entries is 19 January 2018.
