It’s been an exciting week at LoveLula as we picked up our ‘Best Online Retailer’ award at the Natural and Organic Products show at Olympia.
Being honoured with this award meant a great deal to us, as it was the readers of Natural Health Magazine who voted… As we pride ourselves on customer care and offering friendly and prompt service this felt like a confirmation that we’re doing things right!
What’s more, we got a day out in London! The show celebrates the very best in organic, ethical and natural products and gave us the chance to meet some of the lovely people behind our favourite brands and discover exciting new products from around the world. Walking around the stands was like taking a mini world-trip, travelling from Italy, through Russia and onto Greece in a few short steps. What struck me was how we really are united in our common quest and how rapidly products are developing as brands strive for more effective formulas…
The array of products was dazzling. There’s certainly no doubting the passion and dedication that goes into them. Gorgeous Brazilian girls were promoting natural self-tan; handsome men from Palestine had their own olive tree surrounded by palm-oil-free soap, and one brand had constructed a complete Baobab tree from sacks! It was wonderful to be part of a group of individuals who are so inventive, creative, passionate and dedicated. I noticed that Bees seemed to be flavour of the month with lots of honey-rich products popping up and lots of bee-inspired packaging – keep a look out!
Apart from the extortionate price of water, it was an amazingly positive experience; you could feel the energy in the building (although that might have been those free samples of Spirulina?!) and I think we all left feeling re-energized and renewed in our quest for the very best of beauty without chemicals or cruelty.
Our MD Sonia gave a talk on our new Boutique (blog on that subject soon) and we collected our framed award which now hangs proudly at LoveLula HQ. It reminds us that we love our customers and makes us proud to be spearheading the spread of natural and organic beauty products around the world.
