Llandysul based Chuckling Goat “Pro-Biotic Skin Care for Troubled Skin,” has won the Bronze Award in the Problem Skin Category in the third annual FreeFrom Skincare Awards.

The awards were founded to encourage and reward manufacturers of skincare products that are ‘free from’ many of the allergens, chemicals, additives and fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, allergies, and ethical, environmental and health concerns.

“We are over the moon with this award,” said Shann Jones, who co-founded and co-directs Chuckling Goat, along with her husband Richard.

“On the farm we know the power of goatsmilk and our probiotic kefir to heal troubled skin, but it’s fantastic to see that confirmed on a national scale!”

The Joneses milk their own goats on their family smallholding near Llandysul, and turn the raw milk into unique soaps and skin creams that have been found to have a powerful healing effect on skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and dermatitis.

The awards were presented at The Love Natural, Love Organic Show at Olympia on July 4, by special guest ‘Imperfectly Natural’ beauty and holistic health guru, Janey Lee Grace.

The announcements followed a long, four-stage judging process which culminated in a rigorous month-long assessment by testers recruited by the FreeFrom Skincare Awards’ associates, the Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible.
