From the tips of your toes to the top of your head, the 2022 Clean Beauty Awards’ body, nail and sun care finalists prove that luxurious beauty and self-care do not have to come at the cost of your health. Nail and sun care products are notorious for being chemical-laden and packed with cancer-causing ingredients. Even your typical body lotion is full of phthalates and Parabens. But the Clean Beauty Awards aren’t just celebrating products for their outstanding ingredients. The Clean Beauty Awards are about honouring the effectiveness of these fantastic brands and showing off their excellent results with our judge’s raving reviews. The top products in the body, nail, and sun care categories are as incredibly effective as they are natural.
The body care category is all about nourishing products that work to de-age, hydrate and give your bod a touch of extra love in the form of creams, salves and serums. The esteemed judging panel had their work cut out for them, trying out a huge range of body care products and coming up with this final list of ultimate body care products:
