Sophie Uliano and Gorgeously Green are proud to announce the 2016 Gorgeously Green Beauty Awards!
The GGBA is a celebration of natural, holistic skincare and beauty – For over a decade Sophie has been a leader in the green/wellness community, with a distinct eye towards skincare and beauty. Sophie’s audience trusts her product reviews above all other recommendations because her breadth of knowledge and personal relationships with formulators guarantee readers a recommendation they can trust for healthy, glowing skin!
The GGBA is an amazing opportunity for brands of all sizes to celebrate natural beauty and skincare – Not only will Sophie be selecting winners in over 45 categories, but she will be created unique content across all of her platforms to engage and inform her audience about the world of healthy, green products available at all price points!
We are also excited to announce a new category to the 2016 GGBA – The Audience Choice Awards! The Gorgeously Green audience will have an opportunity to vote on their favorite products in each of the categories.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
Nomination – Click here to nominate your products into their respective categories. Sophie will open the nomination to the general public from June 1 to July 31st.
For Your Consideration – Public voting will be open to all voters. Brands are of course invited to promote their nomination in categories and to invite their audience to vote.
Announcing The Winners – Winners in both the GGBA and the GGBA Audience Choice categories will be announced on November 1 – Just in time for the holiday marketing period.

DOES IT MATTER HOW MUCH MY PRODUCT COSTS? Not. At. All. Sophie’s audience buys at all price points. The only things that matters are that your product is healthy for humans (and animals and the earth) and that your brand shares Gorgeously Green’s core values.
BUT WHAT ARE GORGEOUSLY GREEN’S CORE VALUES? Great question – At Gorgeously Green, we look at a number of factors when recommending products. Primarily, we’re looking at ingredients. Things that really turn us off are inorganic scents, parabens, butylated hydroxyanisole/butylated hydroxytoluene, bismuth oxychloride, coal tar dyes, DEA (diethanolamine), cocamide DEA, laramide DEA, ETA (ethanolamine), MEA (monoethanolamine), TEA (triethanolamine), formaldehyde and formaldehyle-releasing preservatives, non-specific “fragrance” listed on the label, microbeads, lead and other heavy metals, hydroquinone, nanoparticles, propylene and butylene, ingredients that end in “-siloxane” … you get the picture. Keep the chemicals out, please. But we’re also looking for other shared values, such as the use of organic products, vegan ingredients, cruelty-free, bonus-points for gluten-free, recyclable packaging, buy-one give-one programs and general awesomeness. At Gorgeously Green, we really think of ourselves as a family – We want to promote products that we would feel wonderful about giving to any member of our family.
We are so excited to be announcing this amazing opportunity. For more information, and more FAQs, click here, or on the images below.
