Cosmetics & Toiletries R&D Awards
Cosmetics & Toiletries® is pleased to present the Cosmetics &Toiletries R&D Awards, which recognize the latest innovations in personal care. These awards recognize the science behind the final product and allow both suppliers and manufacturers to bring greater exposure to their innovative technology and product launches.
Nominations are reviewed by an esteemed panel of international experts, who select the winners for two categories—Best New Ingredient and Most Creative Application. Each entry is judged not only for its significance to the industry but also for its long-term impact. Eligible entries must be associated with a raw material or finished product launched as of the January prior to the award year.
- The award for Best New Ingredient will honor one new
cosmetic/personal care raw material for its innovative design and/or
method of development.
- The award for Most Creative Application will honor one new finished
cosmetic/personal care product for the novelty and craft of its
formulation and/or application of a technology.
Winners are presented during the annual awards ceremony held at in-cosmetics and are profiled within Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine.
