Elva’s All Naturals’ facial toner wins 1st place in 2022 Clean Beauty Awards
Milton, ON, Canada, July 20, 2022 – Elva's All Naturals’ GLOW. Brightening Facial Toner with Bioflavonoids has been announced the 1st Place Winner in the facial toner/mist category, in CertClean’s 7th annual Clean Beauty Awards. In addition, Ethereal GLOW. Facial Oil (also by Elva’s) received the honour of Top 10 Finalist. The esteemed Clean Beauty Awards were created to acknowledge and reward superior beauty and personal care products formulated without the use of harmful chemicals, by trailblazers in the clean beauty market.
More than 450 best-selling, clean beauty products from around the globe were nominated for this year’s awards and were judged by an international panel of 146 beauty specialists. Finalists/Winners/Top3 were chosen in each of the 24 product categories.
“We are thrilled to receive this high honour and international recognition for clean skincare. We’re particularly excited because we’ve always believed so much in the product and unique benefits of the formula. This award is wonderful to receive after the years of hard work and research we’ve put into our formulations, and into the topical benefits of active citrus bioflavonoids specifically. Formulating clean products that are all natural, cruelty-free and without harmful chemicals is our very mission at Elva’s. Since our skin has over 5 million pores it’s fair to say we are basically walking sponges, making it extremely important to consider what you put on your skin and allow to enter your bloodstream. So when a skincare formula turns out to be both clean and highly beneficial, that’s when you know you have a winning product.” says Kirsten Pelchat, CEO.
Refreshing, balancing and skin-brightening, the facial toner is also a makeup setting spray. It is pH-balanced, alcohol-free and contains organic and active citrus bioflavonoids which Elva’s believes can be an integral contributor to overall skin radiance and health. Although not yet commonly used in skincare, citrus bioflavonoids are prized for their anti-aging, skin brightening, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties when applied topically, making them a logical and welcome addition to any skincare regime. And says Pelchat, “likely to gain more attention in the beauty industry, as awareness grows about their incredible skincare benefits.”
The deliberate absence of alcohol in the formula further supports the preservation of the skin’s natural surface biome, while eliminating the ultimately drying effect of alcohol present in most skin toners on the market. In addition, the botanical composition based on aloe vera and witch hazel offer hydration, pore tightening and a gentle soothing effect on the skin. This is further complemented by lemongrass oil: rich in anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and astringent properties, it is praised for its ability to clear skin congestion, reduce redness and hyperpigmentation. Together, the carefully-chosen ingredients in GLOW. Brightening Facial Toner with Bioflavonoids combine to produce a skin brightening effect; hence the name.
