The Best Of The Green Edit Award Winners Announced For 2023



On today’s episode, Cathy Tolpigin and Erin Hawken, co-founder of Nourished Netherlands are thrilled to announce the Best of The Green Edit Award Winners for 2023.

Clean beauty and wellness brands were invited to submit the hero products from their range into 12 categories, which were initially tried and tested by myself, Erin and Celebrity makeup artist Laura Burns who is based in New York, but was in Sydney over summer to help us shortlist the finalist products.

Erin, Laura and I had the pleasure of testing over 130 products across 12 categories — all of which represent the very best clean beauty and wellness products. Despite an incredibly strong caliber of entries, shortlisted the top five products in each category.

For second round judging and to determine the winners of each award, finalist products were sent to an independent and highly acclaimed judging panel of influential Australian and international beauty experts and retailers including

Elena Severin from The Detox Market who have 6 stores across the USA and Canada,

Robyn Doyle founder of Beautyologie in the US,

Yvette Wyeth founder of Active Skin,

Alex Wilson founder of Heartwood based in Western Australia,

Clare McGrowdie founder of Sydney's Bond Clean Beauty store and

Elise Wilson Category Beauty Editor at Are Media Australia.

I am so proud to offer these brand founders the unique distribution opportunity to introduce their brand and product range to these amazing judges so they too may experience the very best of clean beauty.

A big congratulations to the winners and thank you to all the brands who entered The Best Of The Green Edit awards this year, we absolutely loved discovering new favourite products and celebrating truly natural and ethical brands.
