Our winning lineup at the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2023

Our winning lineup at the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2023

Wow, we are absolutely delighted to add four new Beauty Awards to our list in 2023! With a special category Winner and three Editor's Choice Awards, we are incredibly proud of our beautiful products. Here they are.


Winner, Best Coral Safe Sun Product - Natural Sun Defence SPF40 

We are so excited that from a field of global entrants Natural Sun Defence SPF40 took out Best Coral Safe Sun Product! What a great affirmation to have our new improved SPF40 sunscreen formulation recognised in the Beauty Awards. So much work and research went into creating this update and the feedback from our Frankie family has been absolutely rewarding. Thank you.  

"This is great sunscreen - it’s a lot thinner than other natural sunscreens, and leaves a lot less white residue. It provides really strong protection too, and seems to last longer on your skin than other sun blocks." - Ali

"This sunblock is brilliant! It goes on so smooth and creamy you don’t have to really rub it in, it absorbs quickly and leaves skin so soft all day, it didn’t go sticky or greasy at all and best of all I dud not get sunburnt! I only applied once too. 5/5 from me." - Rachel


Editor's Choice - Replenishing Kakadu C Facial Oil 

This little beauty was joint winner of Best Natural Face Oil category in The Beauty Shortlist 2022 Mama & Baby Awards, and this year scooped the Editor's Choice Award. No surprises here, as this all natural, high potency facial oil was created to balance both soothing irritated or sensitive skin, and replenishing skin at a cellular level.   

"Love it !! Been using it for a year and recommended to my daughter and she too loves this so much as it improves our skin looks so moist and radiant now thank you." - Melissa

"This oil is the best facial oil I have ever used. I have used many oils especially on my forehead which always seems fo dry up quickly. This oil however keeps my head soft and plump during the day. After a week my face looks brighter and more even toned. I have now been using a tiny bit under my eyes at night as a “eye mask” definitely recommend to anyone with acne prone or dry skin like me." - Ina


Editor's Choice - Kūmarahou & Kawakawa Shampoo Bar

Our shampoo bars were a big break away from the brand's original focus on just offering eczema friendly skin care, but they have grown a loyal following from both people with and without sensitive skin. We feel like this 'baby' is all grown up!

"I was referred to Frankie Apothecary by my dermatologist and I absolutely love the Kumarahou & Kawakawa Shampoo Bar! It’s definitely my only go to for a happy scalp and healthy hair - highly recommend." - Tara

"I have used the shampoo bar for almost two years on my fine oily hair. It is the only thing that has helped my scalp and my hair looks great and feels properly clean. Other bars could never! I recommend this bar to everyone." - Nell


Editor's Choice - Vanilla & Kawakawa Conditioning Bar

Beloved for the rich scent and the luscious locks it nurtures, this heroic conditioning bar kept up with its partner in waste-free hair care, and strode away with an Editor's Choice Award too! You can buy both and save with a Hair Care Duo pack.

"I knew I had to try something new when my scalp became very itchy and sore, so I'd ordered the kawakawa shampoo bar to see if it helped. I've used them together four or five times now, and have noticed a massive improvement, almost immediately. My scalp is much soothed with hardly any itching, and my fine/thick/wavy hair is soft and smooth and happy. Happy to have the full Frankie lineup in my shower now, what with the shampoo and conditioner bars, alongside the body bar!" - Anna

"Never stop making this! I have been using both the shampoo and conditioner bars since November 2018 and I can honestly say that my hair is just getting better the longer I use them. They work equally well on the whole family's hair, which includes fine and curly, fine and wavy and super-thick and curly! Smells divine and leaves hair soft and manageable but with no residue or build-up." - Rosie


If there was a podium and acceptance speech, our thanks would be going out to you, our wonderful Frankie family, for all your support, feedback, and sharing the word about Frankie Apothecary with your friends and family. We couldn't do this without you!

Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi

With your food basket, and mine, the people will thrive

Thank you.

Georgina & Matt
