Here are some answers to common questions …
Can we enter cosmetics into the Free From Living Awards?
Cosmetics are principally accepted in our sibling Awards, the Free From Skincare Awards, which open in January and run until July. We do however accept sun care products in the Free From Living Awards — including creams, blocks and after sun — and also oral care products, such as toothpastes and mouthwash. We also accept therapeutic and topical products, such as muscle balms, sleep balms, and products such as insect repellant and joint rubs, which are applied to the body for non-cosmetic purposes.
Can we enter household goods, technology, white goods or gadgets for the home?
No, not in the launch year, unfortunately. We may add some products relevant to a ‘free from’ or allergy lifestyle — such as air filters, eczema clothing, allergy-safe bedding — in a future edition.
Can we enter pet food in the pet care category?
No, not in the launch year — but we hope to introduce this in the future, either as a component of this award, or as a spin-off to our Free From Food Awards. (Please contact us to register your interest and discuss if you offer such products.)
