Natural Beauty Yearbook unveils 2013 industry hotlist

Natural beauty advocate Janey Lee Grace has been named number one in the Natural Beauty Yearbook’s prestigious 6th annual industry hotlist.  Published by Diversified Business Communications UK, the much-anticipated Who’s who in natural beauty Top 25, which is voted for by industry insiders, was announced last week at an exclusive launch party on 13 November for the 2013 edition.

Hosted by leading French beauty brand Melvita at Whole Foods Market, Kensington High Street, in London, the evening saw the natural beauty trade converge to hear the announcement of the Natural Beauty Yearbook’s exclusive countdown, which provides an essential snapshot of the leading personalities driving the hottest trends and products in the natural and organic beauty market.

“Despite the economic downturn consumers are still investing in the natural and organic category both for their health and the good of the planet,” said Natural Beauty Yearbook 2013 editor, Matt Chittock.

Best known for her appearances on BBC Radio 2’s Steve Wright in the Afternoon programme, where she reaches over seven million listeners, Janey Lee Grace is a passionate supporter of natural, eco and organic products and services.  Whilst this is the first time that she’s scooped the top spot, Lee Grace has been voted into the Natural Beauty Yearbook’s Who’s who in natural beauty Top 10 for the past three consecutive years.

“I’m thrilled to be voted number one – thrilled to bits.  I’m so passionate about natural and organic beauty, so thanks to everyone in the industry for voting for me,” Janey Lee Grace told the assembled crowd of beauty buyers, manufacturers, journalists and bloggers at the 2013 launch.

As the only trade-focused publication for the natural beauty industry, the Natural Beauty Yearbook 2013 is packed full of trend features, company profiles and an exclusive directory showcasing the best of this successful sector.
