Charlotte Vøhtz, Founder, Green People

• Third most influential personality for last three years!
• 14 years on and an astounding 140 products!
• Certified organic and fairly traded beauty

Charlotte Vøhtz, founder of award-winning natural and organic cosmetics company Green People, is celebrating her hat-trick position in the top 3 of ‘Who’s Who in the natural beauty industry’. Voted as the third most influential personality by retailers and manufacturers in trade publication The Natural Beauty Yearbook 2010, it highlights the personal journey Charlotte has made in helping to make natural beauty the success it is today.

“I am truly delighted to be awarded this accolade. Green People was formed on the belief that there should be a more natural and holistic approach to personal care and it is especially satisfying to be rewarded for our efforts. This is a chance for us all to celebrate the breadth of natural beauty products that are now available and the positive effects these have on our overall health and wellbeing.” says Charlotte Vøhtz, Founder, Green People.

Charlotte’s desire to inform and inspire has also led her to become a published author. In 2008 she released ‘Naturally Gorgeous’, her first book, containing a veritable feast of beauty hints and tips to help maximise the body’s health and wellbeing with sections on detoxing, digestion and home-made skin treats.

Natural Beauty Yearbook 2011 editor, Julia Brandon, commented: “Since its inception four years ago, the Top 20 has developed into a coveted Who’s Who of the standout personalities of the year in the natural beauty sector. Voted on by the industry, it singles out individuals who have been recognised for their dedication, hard-work and success in bringing natural and organic beauty to the fore, and I offer my warmest congratulations to those who made it on to 2011’s highly competitive list.”
