A SKIN care range to help menopausal skin has won two awards.

La Femme Verte, based in Ridgewell, just north of Halstead, is a natural plant-based skincare range for menopausal skin.

Louise and Sara Beauchamp established La Femme Verte in 2018 to create a skincare range for women in the menopause after discovering they could not find a natural skincare range to suit their own skin.

The pair each successfully completed Diplomas in Organic Skin Care, and together have researched, tested and formulated a skin range using only natural, premium ingredients.

The formulation journey took three years and their initial range of four products was launched in 2021.

Now, the company has won two silver medals at the second Free From Gift Awards.

The awards were launched in 2020 in order to celebrate the best beauty gift sets, skincare trial packs and cosmetic stocking fillers from brands who manufacture products which are free from some of the allergens, chemicals, additives and fragrances.

La Femme Verte was successful with their Geranium Rose and Petitgrain Trio Gift Set, winning one medal in the face care category and the other in the luxury and pampering category.

Louise said: “We are truly humbled and thrilled to not only be awarded two silver medals in our debut year for the Free From Gift Awards but rank alongside Tropic Skin and The Green People in these awards.

"We are proud to be women in menopause and delighted our skincare range for menopause skin has been so warmly received by the judging panel.

“The gift set includes our radiance day cream, nourish and glow joyous facial serum and gentle oil to milk cleanser with golden Jojoba in our signature fragrance, geranium rose and petitgrain together with a facial brush for dry brushing to increase circulation and rid the skin of dry skin cells and a cotton face cloth to cleanse the skin.

“The fragrance geranium rose and petitgrain is in memory of our mum, Joy who we know would be very proud of us today."
