At the annual FreeFrom Skincare Awards, MuLondon gained a Silver Award for the Organic White Chocolate Elbow, Knee & Heel Cream, Bronze Award for the Organic Marigold, Frankincense & Myrrh Moisturiser and got commended for the Organic Hemp Moisturiser.

The Awards were founded to encourage and reward manufacturers of skincare products that are 'free from' many of the allergens, chemicals, additives and fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, allergies, and ethical, environmental and health concerns. The awards were presented at the 'Love Natural, Love Organic' show at Olympia, by 'Imperfectly Natural' beauty and holistic health guru, Janey Lee Grace. The announcements followed a long, four-stage judging process which included a rigorous month-long assessment by testers recruited by the FreeFrom Skincare Awards’ associates, the Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible.
 
Hand, Nail & Foot Care Category Silver Award Winner - MuLondon Organic White Chocolate Elbow, Knee & Heel Cream. An über-rich cream for joints and body parts all too often neglected, fragranced with the finest bourbon vanilla and cocoa extracts. The testers said: “I'm a sucker for cocoa butter but this is a cut above, managing to be both soothing and sophisticated. Quite frankly, I'd happily use it all over. I think this is hands-down one of my favourite smelling products ever”; “Feet gorgeously silky in the morning”; “Hard skin massively improved”.

Yes, I loved it and yes, I think it's fantastic value for such a superbly moisturising all-organic cream.”; “My knees looked and felt much smoother, more moisturised and rejuvenated!

The standard was far higher this year, and all winners and medallists performed exceptionally well and demonstrated terrific 'free from' properties,” said Alex Gazzola, Awards co-ordinator. “Like last year, it was particularly encouraging to see many smaller or boutique brands holding their own among the big guys – and often beating them!

I am incredibly proud that the MuLondon range has won two awards at this year's FreeFrom Skincare Awards.  I developed MuLondon products to care for sensitive skin types and to be free from common allergens, chemical preservatives and mineral oils. It's an honour to be recognised and awarded for our commitment to safe and gentle skincare.

MuLondon skincare has been endorsed by the Naturewatch Foundation as a genuinely cruelty-free company, and has earned the honour of being listed in the Compassionate Shopping Guide, the bible used by thousands of people who consciously choose to support cruelty-free manufacturers of personal care and household cleaning products through their purchases.

Caroline Ruane, director at Naturewatch, said: “Naturewatch Foundation is delighted that MuLondon has successfully demonstrated that they meet our strict endorsement criteria. This means that not only are MuLondon's products cruelty-free, all of the ingredients they use are cruelty-free and their profits do not support a parent company that tests on animals. We are happy to endorse MuLondon's range of organic skincare products and will be happy to include them in our next edition of our Compassionate Shopping Guide.
 

MuLondon Endorsed By Naturewatch.


For over 20 years the Naturewatch Compassionate Shopping Guide has been the definitive guide to cruelty free shopping for cosmetics, toiletries and household cleaning products. The Naturewatch guide is unique because no other organisation takes into consideration parent companies, large multi-nationals that are able to put forward smaller and more ethical-branded names, but that still continue to use animal testing to develop their products. MuLondon’s award-winning moisturisers and cleansers in luscious varieties such as White Chocolate Truffle, Marigold, Frankincense & Myrrh and Rose, Rosehip & Rosemary will now be listed in the guide. All MuLondon products are made in London, England and are free from artificial preservatives, emulsifiers, fragrances and palm oil. Instead, pure natural and organic sustainable and cruelty-free ingredients like essential oils and herbal extracts are used to create luxurious and mild products.

MuLondon is proud to have earned the honour of being endorsed by Naturewatch and passing their strict criteria of approval. The entire MuLondon range is genuinely cruelty-free and vegan. Customers who care about supporting ethical businesses can enjoy delectable skincare products from MuLondon, knowing that they are free from cruelty to animals. Our products are packed with love, compassion and healing natural ingredients.

I have a confession to make: I love alcohol! I always have a bottle of vodka at home. It's not what you think, though. I'm not a big drinker, although I really enjoy a glass of Pimm's. What's a bottle of vodka doing in my kitchen then, you ask?

Alcohol is the best natural disinfectant, cleaner and solvent. It's safe and non-toxic. I use it all the time around the home. Although you could use rubbing alcohol or surgical spirit, that is a chemically synthesised product which is denatured with bitter compounds. It's also mostly made out of isopropyl alcohol, which is manufactured from propene - a petrochemical derivative. Rubbing alcohol is oxidised by the liver into acetone. Not good.

I prefer using pure grain alcohol like vodka, which is around 40% alcohol - more than enough to do the job. Grain alcohol is clean, clear, safe and neutral. Take an empty spray bottle, fill it up with booze and off you go! Optionally, add a few drops of lemon, orange or lime essential oil - these citrus fruits are all great natural degreasers and disinfectants.
 

Cleaning with alcohol - MuLondon blog.


Try your new natural alcohol-based cleaner around the home:

  • Bathroom: Wipe the bathroom mirror, disinfect your toothbrush, clean the toilet bowl. Add 1/2 cap of vodka to a glass of water with a few drops of essential oil, and you have mouthwash!
     
  • Bedroom: Freshen up the air. Sanitise your jewellery, tweezers and other beauty tools.
     
  • Living room: Clean all those remote controls - spray a light mist of alcohol on a piece of kitchen towel and wipe those buttons and the spaces between them clean. You know you need to.
     
  • Kitchen: Remove water spots from stainless steel surfaces and rubbish bins. Disinfect chopping boards. Banish food stains from the fridge.
     
  • Hallway: Get rid of stubborn stains and unidentified muck on your tiles.


Remember: Do not spray alcohol and essential oils on or near babies, children, pets and varnished surfaces.

After all that hard work, you deserve a drink! Here are a few good organic cocktail recipes from Care2 and Cosmo. You're welcome!

I'd love to hear what you think. Do you have any other tips for using alcohol around the home? Let me know by commenting below. Cheerio!

Are you, like me, obsessed with essential oils? I have hundreds of bottles of all kinds of wonderful aromas at home, and I love experimenting with them. My go-to oil for all kinds of ailments is lavender, and I recommend that all households have a bottle of this wonderful oil in their medicine cabinet. See why here.

 

Smell of roses! Use essential oils to infuse your clothes with natural aromas.



Once you've finished with a bottle of essential oil, remove the cap and the dropper insert and place the empty, opened bottle inside your underwear or t-shirt drawer. The seemingly empty bottle will continue emanating fragrance for quite a while, and will infuse your clothes with a natural, fresh aroma.

All essential oils work well with this neat & simple little trick, but the woody aromas of oils like cedarwood or sandalwood tend to linger longer. Try it with the warm, comforting rose, fresh lavender, cheerful mandarin or spicy patchouli. For an extra punch, you can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil on a cotton hanky and tuck that in between your garments. You can even combine a few oils of your choice to create a unique and personal aroma that will have you smelling like nobody else!

A word of warning: Don't apply essential oils directly to your clothing, as they may stain.

I'd love to hear if you've tried this before. What oils are your favourites? Do you have any other tips for using essential oils around the home? Let me know by commenting below!
