» Vegan Trademarked brand, Nunaïa, wins big at the Cosmoprof Awards 2023

Vegan Trademark certified Nunaïa won the ‘Green & Organic’ category award at the Cosmoprof Awards 2023 to beat 690 international brands for the top spot.

A jury of international beauty industry professionals including CEOs, Presidents, Brand Directors and Editors-in-Chief selected the winners including the Tipperary based Nunaïa. 

Nunaïa was founded by Nicola Connolly, who spent over a decade living, studying and researching wellness with local communities, biologists and healers in Ecuador and Peru before creating the brand. 

Nicola says: “We’re beyond delighted and proud to share that our Ground & Glow Skin Ritual Set made from mycelium technology has won the ‘Green & Organic’ award at Cosmoprof awards. This award is recognition of our vision of high-performance, regenerative skincare and our innovative regenerative business model that leaves our communities and ecosystems healthier and more resilient and goes much further than simply ‘doing less harm’.” 

Being named as one of three finalists was a huge achievement for Nicola, but to win has been a dream come true and a first-ever for an Irish brand at the event. “I am so proud to see our business recognised on an international level and beat out 690 international brands!” 

Nunaïa’s win illustrates the continued success of vegan products in the beauty market, with MarketGlass predicting that the global vegan cosmetics industry will be worth a staggering $21.4 billion by 2027. The Vegan Trademark certification allows shoppers to purchase vegan products with confidence. The Trademark assures consumers that not only are there no animal-based ingredients in registered products such as Nunaïa’s, but also that the ingredients they use have not been tested on animals at the initiative of the company or on its behalf, or by parties over whom the company has effective control.
