1818 Farms Selected as Winner of Good Housekeeping Beauty Awards

Alabama-based Business Recognized for their Premium Skincare Products  

Birmingham, Ala.1818 Farms, located in historic Mooresville, Alabama, was recently selected as one of the prestigious Good Housekeeping’s 2023 Beauty Award winners, winning “Best Body Butter” for their coveted Shea Creme. The creme was applauded for its lightweight, “whipped” texture and moisturizing properties.

A team of scientists at the Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Lab tested the product, using rigorous testing protocols and advanced equipment including the Corneometer device, for measuring skin moisture levels; the Visia Complexion Analyzer, for tracking changes in the skin including wrinkles and hyperpigmentation; and the Cutometer, for gauging skin firmness.

The institute’s advanced testing labs, techniques and equipment reveal the best-performing skincare products on the market, as proven by science. Testers describe the Shea Creme as “excellent to soften the driest patches of skin like knuckles, elbows and cuticles.”

“I am so excited that our shea creme received the Good Housekeeping's Beauty Award for 2023,” states Natasha McCrary, owner of 1818 Farms. “Good Housekeeping does a thorough job informing the public of the best products. I have trusted them for years. To now have a product that they are recommending is such a wonderful honor. Our loyal customers know that our shea creme is such a great product and it is nice to see it nationally recognized.”

1818 Farms has sold nearly half a million jars of their Shea Creme to date. The cream is handmade and contains three simple ingredients: shea butter, coconut oil and essential oil or fragrance. It is available to purchase online at 1818farms.com or Amazon and is offered in eight different scents as well as unscented.

For over 100 years, Good Housekeeping has been a leading source of expert-tested product recommendations. This year alone, Good Housekeeping scientists tested more than 1,000 beauty products to narrow down their top product recommendations. Good Housekeeping’s commitment to sourcing best-in-class products with state-of-the-art technology makes them a trusted authority in the beauty space.  1818 Farms’ Shea Creme is featured on Good Housekeeping’s website and in the April print edition of the magazine.
