Top natural beauty brands are revealed in the Natural Beauty Yearbook

The Who’s who of natural beauty for 2012 has been revealed – and some of our favourite brands are the pick of the bunch.

The annual hot list is produced by the Natural Beauty Yearbook. It’s voted for by the industry and shows the top brands in an expanding market.

“I’m happy to say that we received more votes than ever before this year from people who are truly passionate about the brands and personalities they have nominated,” said Yearbook editor, Matt Chittock.

The list was revealed at a glittering launch party at Melvita’s Covent Garden store – and Simon Duffy, the founder one of our favourite men’s beauty brands, Bulldog, was named as, well, top dog.

Duffy told the crowd at the party: “It’s brilliant news for us and we massively appreciate the profile opportunity this gives to Bulldog. We’re all delighted. Thanks so much.”

Laura Rudoe, owner of Evolve, which is another of Big Green Smile’s best brands, also made the top 20 along with Andrew Dixon, manager of Burt’s Bees.
