The two main reasons is our exposure to chemicals in every day life which we should not be such as parabens, phthalates & mineral oils in our beauty and personal care products. The second is down to poor dietary and lifestyle choices.”

It’s the final week of voting in the Who’s Who of Natural Beauty and we’d love to ask you to take a moment of your time to vote for our founder, Rebecca Goodyear.

Rebecca was #5 last year and we would love for her to advance even further up the chart this year! But why should you give her your vote? In case you’re wondering, we’ve done a little roundup of her great efforts to catapult natural and organic into the mainstream.

Our boutique agency has doubled in size since last year, and we have some superb clients old and new including Kinetic Natural Products Distributor, Unbeelievable Health, Spa Fabulous, FOM London and HJ Manicure.

The readership of Rebecca’s award-winning blog, Biteable Beauty has also doubled, and to celebrate we gave it a bit of a (natural) facelift earlier in the year! We’re also about to launch a US retail shop concept at  www.naturalbeauty.com, which has been such a long time coming but we’re oh so close now, and we’re also looking to launch Biteable Beautique in the UK, a retail store, late 2014.

Rebecca has been featured and contribute to some great publications, including consumer titles Bodyfit, Natural Lifestyle, Naturally Good Health, Your Healthy Living, and trade titles Natural Products, Natural Pharmacy, Health Food Business and Organic & Natural Business. In her articles she’s covered everything from natural conception to baby care, eczema to mineral makeup, green beauty to eating your greens.

Finally, having judged the Soil Association Awards in 2012, launched her own Biteable Best of Beauty Awards in 2013, which are set to continue for a long time to come, Rebecca has also been selected to judge a category in the Natural Health Beauty Awards and the prestigious Beauty Challenger Awards at Beyond Beauty COS Meeting in Paris.

Lots of exciting things happening, and we’d love to round off the year with a top 4 placement in the Who’s Who. To help Rebecca on the way, you can vote for her here.
