After an application process that attracted more than 200 brands, four finalists were selected by our esteemed panel of executives from Covent Garden, Harvey Nichols, WGSN, Felix Capital, Blink Brow Bar, Charlotte Mensah and newcomer Dizziak.
The winner was chosen by make-up artist and brand founder herself – Ruby Hammer MBE.
Albiva is a premium skincare brand that was created to support the body’s own self-healing power to restore balance‚ nourish and heal.
Following her recovery from a spinal tumour, founder Ivana Iesini drew on her scientific background to create advanced plant-based formulas that contribute to the overall wellness of the body.
Ivana says: “My strong belief in the body’s ability to heal itself was the genesis for Albiva.”
The judges were impressed with the Ivana’s passion and knowledge, the innovation and formulation of Albiva’s products, and believe the business is on track for strong growth.
We are delighted to have Ivana Iesini and her brand Albiva representing the high standard of British beauty brands.
