As one of the world’s leading organic beauty brands, we’re always proud when our innovative products are recognised on the world stage. The beauty industry is competitive, and we’re constantly trying to create skincare and makeup products that inspire.

Now that we’re coming to the end of 2020, we’re thrilled to announce the certified organic, 100% natural, vegan skincare and makeup products that were beauty award winners this year.

INIKA Organic Awards 2020

Nourish Vegan Awards 2020

The brainchild of Nourish magazine, the Nourish Vegan Awards celebrate the best vegan products as voted by readers. The goal of the awards is to inspire people to take steps towards living a plant-based lifestyle, from beauty to food and fashion and beyond. They’re the only awards of their kind in Australia, and the winners were announced on World Vegan Day, which fell on 1 November 2020.

Winner: Best Vegan Makeup

INIKA took home the Best Vegan Makeup award. We’re so grateful that beauty lovers around the world are aligned with our ethos. We have the strictest natural ingredient criteria of any brand across the globe, and only use pure and proven botanicals and minerals in our products. Along with being completely natural and suitable for all skin types, all of our makeup is vegan and cruelty-free — another standard we’re incredibly proud of.

Winner: People’s Choice Award

This award is reserved for brands who meet — and exceed — expectations in terms of their philosophy and the quality and effectiveness of their products. We’re so proud that our message about sustainability is resonating with people across the world. We’re also proud that they trust our products to not only help their skin, but reduce our collective footprint on the planet.

Finalist: Best Vegan Skincare

INIKA was also shortlisted for this prestigious award for our vegan skincare line, which is infused with potent botanicals to hydrate, nourish and restore the skin while combating the effects of damaging pollutants.

The Beauty Awards by ASOS 2020

A partnership between UK’s Beauty Magazine and global retail giant ASOS, these awards celebrate the latest and greatest beauty products to hit shelves that year. Both industry leaders and the public vote on the products, and we’re proud to announce INIKA has been shortlisted for 3 Beauty Awards in 2020.

The winners are set to be announced in January 2021.

New Cleansing Champion 2020 Phytofuse Renew Camellia Oil Cleanser - Shortlisted

Launched this year as part of our anti-ageing, hydrating and anti-pollution skincare line, the Phytofuse Renew Camellia Oil Cleanser lifts impurities while nourishing the skin with antioxidant-rich Camellia Oil. Infused with shea butter and Rose of Jericho, the natural cleanser is suitable for all skin types. It has a unique silicone brush head that gently massages the skin and deeply unclogs pores.

New Moisturising Hero 2020 Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Night Cream - Shortlisted

Perfect for dry or mature skin types, this rich night cream seals in much-needed moisture and strengthens the skin’s barrier while you sleep. It contains Rose of Jericho and Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant, to repair and deeply hydrate the skin overnight so you can wake up with a healthy, radiant complexion. The Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Night Cream has the highest percentage of clinically proven active botanical ingredients in the world, and increases skin moisture by 39% in 28 days.

New Naturally Derived Product 2020 Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Eye Cream - Shortlisted

Another addition to our clinically proven, certified organic skincare line, the Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Eye Cream works to boost elasticity, even out skin tone and brighten the eye area for a more refreshed look. Enriched with Resveratrol, Rose of Jericho and Squalane, the vegan eye cream also hydrates and plumps the skin while minimising fine lines and dark circles.

It comes with a ceramic applicator, which soothes the skin and reduces puffiness. In our independent clinical trial, the eye cream was proven to boost elasticity by 39% in 28 days — which is just one skin cell cycle.

Global Green Beauty Awards 2020

The Global Green Beauty Awards showcases the best new launches over the past year. The panel of judges focus on organic skincare, makeup and beauty tools, and look for premium-quality products that highlight the expertise of their creators. The winners were announced in August, and we’re honoured to have won a range of Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.

Gold Winner: Best Vegan Anti-Ageing Product Phytofuse Renew Maca Root Rich Day Cream

Between smoke, sweat and the chemicals in our cleaning products, our skin is exposed to pollution every day. These pollutants can clog pores and accelerate the ageing process, leaving the skin more susceptible to damage.

The Maca Root Day Cream works to create a protective barrier between the air and your skin, and stop environmental aggressors from making contact with your skin cells. The natural moisturiser absorbs quickly and is proven to prevent up to 90% of pollutants from penetrating.

Gold Winner: Best Natural Beauty Tool Vegan Kabuki Brush

With its short, dense and firm bristles, our Vegan Kabuki Brush is ideal for applying powder products with medium-to-full coverage— such as mineral foundations and pressed powders. Like all our brushes, the Vegan Kabuki Brush is professional-grade and made with high-quality natural fibres that won’t scratch or irritate the skin.

The fluffy brush is thick, long-lasting and completely biodegradable down to the handle, which is crafted with PLA material from raw corn and cassava.

Silver Winner: Best Organic Beauty Product Certified Organic Mascara

Believe it or not, the hero ingredient in the best cruelty-free mascara is Cranberry Water! The world-first formula is also rich in Magnolia Bark Extract and Vitamin E to protect and nourish lashes, as well as sunflower oil to give lashes a glossy finish. The Certified Organic Mascara also features a tapered wand to reach and coat every single lash. It’s suitable for the most sensitive eyes, and won’t clump or flake.

Silver Winner: Best Organic Eye Product Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Eye Cream

Our new eye cream scooped up another award in 2020 thanks to its organic ingredients. The list includes Resveratrol, an anti-ageing heavy hitter, as well as Rose of Jericho, the “miracle plant” that works to revive and brighten tired skin. Squalane deeply hydrates the delicate skin under the eyes and calms inflammation.

Bronze Winner: Best Organic Eye Product Bold Lash Vegan Mascara

The Bold Lash Mascara strengthens and volumises the lashes without clumping or smudging. The best vegan mascara, it’s made with 100% plant-derived ingredients, so it’s ideal for those with sensitive eyes. Available in both black and brown, it contains Carnauba Wax to boost lash length and volume, and Magnolia Bark Extract to coat your lashes in long-lasting colour. Finally, Vitamin E softens and protects lashes.

Bronze Winner: Best Vegan Makeup Brush Vegan Kabuki Brush

Along with winning three “Best Natural Beauty Tool” title, the Vegan Kabuki Brush earned third place in the makeup brushes category.

Organic Beauty Awards 2020

Since 2017, the Organic Beauty Awards have highlighted the best in organic skincare and beauty products each year. They hone in on products that support your health and wellbeing, and help to reduce your toxic load by avoiding harmful chemicals. What’s more, the awards celebrate cruelty-free brands with ethical and sustainable practices. INIKA is proud to have made an impact in 2020.

Best Foaming Scrub Phytofuse Renew Caviar Lime Exfoliator

Packed with fruit acid AHAs, this gentle natural exfoliator dissolves dead skin cells without aggravating the skin. The foaming formula also contains Bamboo Stem and Pumice to purify the pores and even out bumpy texture, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.

The Phytofuse Renew Caviar Lime Exfoliator also speeds up skin cell regeneration to brighten the skin and add a radiant glow.

Best Anti-Ageing Day Cream Phytofuse Renew Maca Root Day Cream

This award-winning moisturiser is part of our anti-ageing and anti-pollution skincare line. By strengthening the lipid barrier, the Phytofuse Renew Maca Root Day Cream shields the skin from pollutants and irritants that can accelerate the signs of ageing, like fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. The lightweight formula also locks in moisture, which is the cornerstone of healthy, youthful-looking skin.

Best Certified Organic Age-Defense for Dry/Mature Skin Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Serum

With 14 botanical oils, the Phytofuse Renew Resveratrol Serum works to boost skin cell regeneration, reduce fine lines and fight the free radicals that cause premature ageing. Along with plant-based oils like Jojoba and Avocado Oil, the silky serum is packed with antioxidants to brighten the skin and Resveratrol to calm the skin and minimise redness.

It’s also clinically proven to increase skin elasticity by 67% when used with our extra-nourishing Maca Root Day Cream. It’s potent — so you only need to use a little to reap the benefits.

Pure Beauty Awards 2020

These annual awards celebrate new beauty products that have launched into an international market over the last 12 months.
