Award Winning Skincare

A Glittering Start to 2022 for Gardiner Family Apothecary!

Barely into a new year and the awards are already starting to stack up for Gardiner Family Apothecary and our Irish free-from skincare brands, Elave and Ovelle!

Joanna Gardiner, CEO, said: “We are delighted that Gardiner Family Apothecary is being recognised across the sector and media in 2022 for the excellence of our business and our outstanding skincare formulations.

“As a homegrown family business founded over 86 years ago by my grandfather, Joseph Gardiner, we have dedicated our expertise to creating only the finest quality skincare for dry, sensitive and eczema-prone Irish skin.

“We have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to recognising and leaving out, the harmful ingredients that can irritate and damage delicate skin. Now the public is becoming increasingly aware of how important it is to treat skin right.”      

Gardiner Family Apothecary has just been awarded Best Cruelty Free Skincare Brand and Best Sustainable Skincare Brand by Global Health & Pharma, the prestigious global information sharing platform for professional decision-makers which focuses on human, animal and environmental health.

 

Our cruelty-free, vegan, derma and sustainability accreditations

Our skincare ranges are PETA certified cruelty-free and  92% of our solutions are PETA Vegan (with the few exceptions containing beeswax and Manuka honey) and are dermatologically approved to the highest European standards, using sustainably sourced and produced ingredients.

Gardiner Family Apothecary is delighted to be a finalist in the Home, Beauty & Lifestyle category of the inaugural Guaranteed Irish Business Awards, which also celebrate and promote homegrown businesses.

Two of our skincare solutions, Elave Skin Defence SPF45 and Elave Baby Bath, are finalists in the 2022 OTC & Product Retail Awards, which recognise leading manufacturers in over the counter pharmacy products.

The winners of the OTC Awards, which are promoted by trusted publication Irish Pharmacy News and judged by some of Ireland’s leading pharmacy professionals, will be announced in April.

 

On top of all that, we are also in the running in the Best Skincare Product category of the newly expanded Irish Tatler Wellness & Spa Awards, so watch this space!

As adults, we understand the importance of treating baby’s skin right, right from the start, and looking after our own skin. But what about the awkward ‘tween’ years?  It is just as important to establish a good skincare routine for older children as, say, encouraging them to use a deodorant or brush their teeth.
