Eco-consciousness has reached new heights among shoppers, but it’s still difficult to find genuinely natural and organic products. While green-washed labelling continues to confuse consumers, the transparent approach taken by bath and body brand ON! Juniper is attracting multiple award nominations for its organic and natural range of bath bombs and lip balms.
Created by mum-of-two Tess Ackland, who was alarmed to discover how many hidden nasties are used in many so-called ‘natural’ bodycare products, ON! Juniper is primarily aimed at five to 15-year-olds but is fast becoming a favourite with all the family. The latest award nomination for the ON! Juniper range comes from the Natural Health International Beauty Awards, where four products have been shortlisted in the Parent & Baby category.
The highly prestigious judging panel – including organic expert Jo Wood, Green & Black’s founder Jo Fairley, skincare expert Antonia Burrell and Sarah Wilson, head of beauty at Holland & Barrett – will be scrutinising ON! Juniper for efficacy, as well as its ethical, natural and organic credentials. Results will be announced on 5th July.
This British-made brand’s excellence has already been recognised with award wins from Green Parent Magazine (2017 Best Buy Award) and a 2018 Bronze Achievement Award in the Free From Skincare Awards.
After extensive product development research, Tess has created exclusive formulae that contain no parabens, sulphates, phthalates, fillers, major allergens, petroleum or petroleum by-products, nor any wheat, nut or soy derivatives. In many cases, food-safe ingredients are used.

Tess comments, “After a career spent in environmental impact and community sustainability, I am passionate about creating ethically-produced, organic and natural products which people will love using and can feel good about. To my knowledge, no other comparable brand can beat ON! Juniper’s credentials and we’re always looking for new ways to be more sustainable.
“Greenwashing is a significant problem in the beauty industry, so I am on a mission to make our products and packaging as simple and honest as possible. All our customers know exactly what they’re buying and it’s wonderful to receive such positive feedback from them. The multiple award wins and nominations are the icing on the cake!”
