2018 Mama & Baby Awards (Summer 2018)

August 2017

What we do (and don’t!)


We DO do private consultations with brands:  from start-up to advice or support with new launches, new ranges, new website content, retail placement, and global expansion.

We DO accept unsolicited samples, and the best way to get samples to us, due to the sheer volume of brands and PRs that contact us daily, is to enter your brand into either our annual International Beauty Shortlist Awards (2018 is year 7, and entries are open now), or the 5th annual Mama & Baby Awards (next summer).

We DO support small, niche artisan brands as well as the big global players.

We DO support eco brands but we also feature brands that are not 100% “green” (e.g. some of the French pharmacy or dermatologist-led brands) as long as these brands are not actively trying to greenwash consumers and do not make false claims about being totally natural.

We DO NOT support brands that “greenwash” – i.e. pretend to be natural to attract the green buyer, when really the ingredients label is nowhere near natural.

We DO NOT run one-off ads, individual sponsored posts, one-off paid Instagram posts, etc.

We DO NOT use affiliate links.

We DO NOT sell beauty blogger email lists (or consumers’ emails) – absolutely never.

We DO NOT have any behind the scenes allegiances to any brand whatsoever in the beauty or wellbeing industry.

We DO NOT receive anything from the retailers we feature – in fact, we pick and choose the retailers and try to be fair, mentioning different retailers regularly.

We DO like to hear about new brands and interesting launches which we feel consumers will love.

So if you’d like to get in touch, drop us a line!
