Surrey based natural skincare creator, Just Be Natural is proud to have won the Best Local Producer (Creative) award in the inaugural Muddy Stilettos Awards in Surrey, celebrating fantastic places, spaces and businesses across the region.
Over the past few months, local people and subscribers to the Muddy Stilettos, Surrey blog have been nominating and voting for their favourite independent businesses across Surrey in 30 different categories. With over 10,000 nominations, 500 businesses and 20,000 votes, the awards were hotly contested. The overall winners in each category were announced on Tuesday 14 June.
Commenting on winning a Muddy Stiletto Award, Louisa Alessandra Pini, Clinical Aromatherapist and Skincare Creator from Just Be Natural says: “I was overwhelmed by the support of my customers, clients and suppliers during the voting for the Muddy Stilettos Awards. As a micro-business I had no idea that I would have enough votes to actually win. A real sense of community spirit has been inspired by the Awards and I hope it becomes an annual event for independent local businesses across the region.”
Amber Evans, editor of Muddy Stilettos Surrey adds: “The Muddy Stilettos Awards give local businesses a chance to shout about how brilliant they are. For me it has been particularly exciting to see just how many wonderful places there are to visit in our local area.”
After discovering how many harmful chemicals there are in many cosmetics brands, Louisa set out to create a skincare range that contains effective levels of natural and organic plant based ingredients to nourish, soothe and protect the skin. Each product is individually handmade with care and integrity and in keeping with using local resources there is a range made using local Carshalton Lavender oil from the community project.
