Silver Award for Barefoot SOS Body Cream

Barefoot SOS Face & Body Rescue Cream received a Silver Award for Best Body and Hair Care Product at the inaugural FreeFrom Skin Care Awards 2012.

Held in association with The Green Beauty Bible, the Awards were designed to celebrate skin care manufacturers creating products which exclude as many allergens, chemicals, fragrances and artificial additives associated with many modern day skin and health problems.

The FreeFrom Skin Care Awards were held at The Allergy and FreeFrom Show at Kensington Olympia in May and organised by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, editor of the websites, and Alex Gazzola, deputy editor of and a health writer specialising in allergies.

Barefoot’s Hero Product was shortlisted from 160 products before being awarded a Silver Award. Judges’ comments about Barefoot SOS Face & Body Rescue Cream included:

“The product easily absorbed into the skin: it sinks in easily within a minute or so leaving the skin very soft and protected. Fresh lemony smell. Very fresh, clean and pleasant fragrance. Cooling on application and cooling on irritated skin. Clear labelling, no nonsense packaging. Very impressive.”

“I am delighted Barefoot SOS was recognised for this new award and that the judges spoke so highly of our clear and concise packaging which was rebranded last year. The rebrand has elevated us into the natural skincare solution market and it’s good to see consumers are recognising the benefits of using products which are free from synthetic chemicals,” said Lindsay Dancaster, Barefoot SOS brand manager.

Barefoot SOS has been offering relief for eczema sufferers for over 17 years and the FreeFrom Skin Care Award adds to its growing list of achievements in 2012. Barefoot SOS won the ‘Best Eczema Range’ in the Natural Health and Beauty Magazine Awards 2012 for the second year running. It also picked up a Silver at the Awards for its SOS Daily Rich Body Lotion and the SOS Barrier Hand Cream won ‘Best Hand Therapy Cream’ in the Beauty Shortlist Awards.

Barefoot SOS Face & Body Rescue Cream is an intensively rich and nourishing cream combining Chickweed and Burdock extracts to comfort and soothe, Macadamia and Evening Primrose Oil to deeply moisturise, Organic Sulphur (MSM) to replenish dry skin and Neroli and Chamomile essential oils to nurture the skin.

Barefoot SOS Face & Body Rescue Cream is available in a 50ml size priced at £9.95 and 100ml at £17.95.
