Sussex based brand BalmNatural has won a Gold Medal in the Hand, Foot and Nail Care category at the eleventh annual Free From Skincare Awards, with their best-selling Wild Mint and Tea Tree Foot Balm.

The Europe-wide Awards founded by Alex Gazzola to encourage and reward manufacturers of skincare products that are ‘free from’ many of the allergens, preservatives, additives and fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, allergies, and ethical, environmental and health concerns.

‘I have been lost for words. So thrilled to have won not only our first award but gold’ says Karyn Slyfield, Founder of BalmNatural. ‘The Wild Mint and Tea Tree Foot Balm has always been one of our customers firm favourites and mine too. Formulated with Oat oil, Almond oil, Evening Primrose and Calendula. To lock in moisture, soften, refresh and nourish dry feet and heels. We received rave reviews from the judges and testers!’

The announcements were made online on Tuesday 19th July, and followed a long judging process which included a rigorous month-long assessment by four experienced cosmetic testers, and concluded with round-table expert judging sessions, held in June.
Karyn, a medical receptionist at a GP surgery says ‘I have a love for natural and organic ingredients with aromatherapy blends. I self-taught myself to formulate, I think I learnt it from my late mother who loved chemistry!

We only launched late in 2022 and have come such a long way! We can’t wait to enter more products in the 2023 awards!’
