New Eco-Friendly Cornish Brand Shortlisted for Best FreeFrom Skincare Brand Award

Shortlisted Bloomtown Sugar Scrub

My husband and I started Bloomtown because we saw a real need for a palm oil-free revolution in the beauty industry.

Truro, Cornwall – Cornish body & skincare brand Bloomtown has been shortlisted for several Freefrom Skincare Awards, including Best Freefrom Skincare Brand, alongside industry heavyweights such as Neal’s Yard Remedies.

Bloomtown, which was launched in April 2016 by Cornishman Medwin Culmer and partner Preyanka Clark Prakash, has already scooped up several prestigious beauty awards and boasts stellar ethical accreditations from The Ethical Company Organisation and The Good Shopping Guide.

Almost 200 products from more than 100 brands have made the shortlist of the sixth annual FreeFrom Skincare Awards, which was founded in 2012 to encourage and reward manufacturers of skincare products that are ‘free from’ many of the allergens, ingredients, additives and artificial fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, health concerns, as well as ethical, personal and environmental issues.

Bloomtown is among five brands who lead the way with four shortlisted products each; their shortlisted products include two of their popular Sugar Scrubs, their Organic Hand & Body Wash and their Roll-On Infused Oil, all free from palm oil, parabens and synthetic ingredients.

Bloomtown co-founder Preyanka Clark Prakash, who immigrated to the UK in 2015, had this to say about the news: “My husband and I started Bloomtown because we saw a real need for a palm oil-free revolution in the beauty industry. We’re so honoured to be recognised among innovative green beauty leaders because we believe wholeheartedly in creating products that are not only free from nasties that harm our bodies and our skin, but also those ingredients that are derived from environmentally destructive palm oil.”

Half the brands on the Shortlist are first-time entrants to the Awards, and many are new and small start-ups,” says Kirsty Mawhinney, Awards Administrator. “This reflects the degree to which ‘free from’ and natural skincare is constantly growing and improving.”
