Although well established in Thailand and southeast Asia, the Siam Botanicals brand is relatively new to the UK and the EU, where the natural skincare industry is growing rapidly. A few months ago, we decided to put our head above the parapet by entering a couple of our top-selling products into the Beauty Shortlist Awards. The Beauty Shortlist is one of the UK’s top beauty blogs, so it was a good opportunity for us to increase awareness of our products and reach more potential customers who are interested in natural and organic skincare.
All the winners were announced last week – see the full list here – and we were thrilled to discover that our Gentlemen of Siam Shave Oil had been made a finalist in the ‘Best Shaving Product’ category!
We’re giving ourselves a little pat on the back – and we might even pour ourselves a nice glass of something fizzy!
OK, so we didn’t win an actual gong – this time – but for a newcomer entering awards in the UK for the first time, it’s a real achievement to make the shortlist, especially when other entrants include such mega brands as Liz Earle (owned by Walgreens Boots Alliance), REN (owned by Unilever), Neal’s Yard (founded in 1981) and Weleda (which is represented in over 50 countries).
We’re keen to build on this important breakthrough – and we have some exciting plans in the pipeline, which include another foray into the world of awards and an industry event. Watch this space for details…!
