Announcing Our 2012 Organic Beauty Talk Award Winner


We’re excited to announce our 2nd annual Organic Beauty Talk Award Winners in the categories of Skincare, Makeup, Body, Hair, Men, Children, Fashion, Home, and Pets since we launched in May 2011. At Organic Beauty Talk, we’re passionate about you knowing what’s in your products, caring what goes on your skin, and connecting you with brands that have the best organic, natural, vegan, and eco-friendly choices.

This translates into us researching and trying hundreds of products throughout the year that are sent to us from around the world. Since we only review what we consider “best” or high performing products on our site, our awards process was tough. But even amongst all of the great products that we get to experience, there were those that rose to the top and stood out amongst the rest.

We feel fortunate and appreciative to work with some of the greatest organic, natural, vegan, and eco-friendly brands out there and are grateful for the opportunity to be entrusted with their products.

Here’s our list of the best of the best while trying to ensure the purest of the pure. You’ll find some categories listed by individual products and others as a whole product line. You’ll also find a variety of price points (without sacrificing performance) as we stand by the belief that going organic and natural doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank (and we should know because we’ve done it for over 10 years). 

We say thank you to all of the brands that we work with throughout the year for making such great sustainable products and of course, a great big CONGRATULATIONS to our 2012 Organic Beauty Talk Award Winners! We also want to say a big thank you to everyone that voted in our 2012 Reader’s Choice Awards that were introduced this year with over 1,000 votes! You can also check out the winners of our 2011 Organic Beauty Talk Awards

 
 

Voted Product of the Year Finalist in 2014


Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation. Established 25 years ago in France, POY currently operates in 32 countries with the same purpose: Guide consumers to the best products in their market and reward manufacturers for quality and innovation.

 
 

Voted #1 in the liquid soap category Survey of 45,086 people by TNS in the US


Quick—what do the Xbox, Eggland's Best eggs and Adams flea and tick spray have in common? For the record (and before your mind wanders too far) they’re a few of the 23 winners of the annual Product of the Year honors.

Yes, we know, a nice bonfire could be had with all of the awards and trophies out there. But getting named one of the POY is actually a very big deal for a brand—not only for the boasting rights, but for the marketing. The winners will appear on the cover of Parade magazine, and the halo effect of a POY translates to an average sales bump of 10-15 percent. While many of the winners are already category leaders that probably don’t need help with sales, smaller brands that made this year’s list—including Aldi SimplyNature Squeezable Fruit snacks and Le Savonnier Marseillais liquid soap—are sure to be happy for the exposure.

POY has actually been around for close to three decades now, though it’s only had a U.S. presence for six years. Winners are chosen via survey performed by market research firm TNS, and this year some 40,000 consumers weighed in with their favorite brands. POY CEO Mike Nolan said that the survey acts as “an advocate” to help consumers choose brands of “truly superior innovation.” No doubt he’s right, but any brand that’s top-of-mind enough to get named in a consumer survey deserves a free dinner. The below brands will get it, too, at tonight's fete at the Edison in New York.

 

Attention Shoppers: Meet the Winners of the 2014 Product of the Year Awards

Imagine the People’s Choice Awards, except the applause and trophies go to breakout products rather than breakout celebs: The Product of the Year USA winners are those ingenious consumer goods—from a kid-friendly squeezable fruit snack to an all-in-one entertainment system—that make our lives a little ­easier and better nearly every single day.  Now in its sixth year, the competition begins with a jury of industry pro­fes­sionals who identify submissions that show innovation in ­function, design, packaging, or ingredients. Then the real experts weigh in. A panel of 40,000 American shoppers, reflecting the diversity of our ­national popu­lation, choose the products they like best, from all aisles of the supermarket and beyond. Perhaps what’s most interesting is what the winners say about us. Read on to learn the shopping trends that the 23 items represent.

Back to Basics
Just as our grandmothers relied on baking soda and vinegar to make their homes sparkle, we’re once again turning to the pantry for cleaning aids. Lemon Oxi Complex dishwasher pacs from Sunlight, for example, use a lemon scent to evoke the tried-and-true grease-fighting power of citrus.

Mint-X, a company that makes trash bags, employs another familiar botanical: “People plant mint in their gardens to deter rabbits, mice, and deer,” says COO Jeff Dussich. Why not use the herb to keep rats and raccoons out of the garbage? After nearly a decade of research, Dussich’s team infused plastic bags with a mint fragrance that’s EPA-registered to safely repel rodents. (Click here for a coupon.)

For The Vintage Soap Factory, the secret to their new glass and surface cleaner wasn’t new at all. “We decided that instead of making a better mousetrap, we should concentrate on what works,” says founder Elizabeth Attie. That turned out to be a simple, 600-year-old recipe from southern France. In 2013, the com­pany launched Le Savonnier ­Marseillais All-Purpose Soap with three main ingredients: water, olive oil (a streak-free cleanser), and ­essential oils (which have antifungal and disin­fectant properties).
