These are the products you voted for that helped get you through Lockdown

Dr Bronner's Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer

"Dr Bronner's Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer quickly kills bacteria on hands when soap and water are unavailable, and leaves behind a lovely lavender scent. The active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, is certified Organic and Fair Trade, and therefore is never derived from genetically modified organisms. Organic glycerin, which naturally draws moisture into the skin, is added to the hand spray rather than synthetic petrochemical thickeners, and this leaves a smooth after-feel that is not sticky or drying. We are thrilled it has won the Rude Health Platinum Award for Best Cleansing Product."
Paul Irwin, Managing Director of Dr. Bronner's Ireland

EIRLAB Coronagel ® Virucidal Alcohol Hand Gel

"It's an honour to have EIRLAB Coronagel® crowned as Best Cleansing Product Gold in the Rude Health Lockdown awards. Our aim was to develop a hand sanitiser that was in compliance with CDC guidelines on Coronavirus (COVID-19) - we are happy to say it has exceeded all expectations."
Eirlab Management

Weleda Skin Food

"We are delighted that our Skin Food Original has won Best Moisturiser Platinum in the Rude Health Lockdown Awards. This is rather a poignant award to win, and one which we perhaps won't celebrate with the usual gleeful whooping and cheering, but this award for our iconic multi-tasking skin soother is surely closest to our heart and one that we gratefully accept on behalf of all the dedicated critical care workers in the health service that we were privileged to support at the peak of the pandemic, in the best way we know how."
Susie Fairgrieve, Communications Director, Weleda UK

Antipodes Baptise H2O Ultra-Hydrating Water Gel

"We are delighted that Antipodes Baptise H2O Ultra-Hydrating Water Gel has won the Rude Health Gold Lockdown Award. It's a fabulous moisturiser and has been many of our teams' skin salvation during lockdown, thanks to its superior hydration qualities. It feels light on the skin and is so quickly absorbed, but is a real heavyweight when it comes to performance!"
Alexander Barani, Managing Director of Kinetic, distributor of Antipodes
