"We're very excited and honored by this award," said Jane Iredale, founder of the company,who described how the Tantasia concept came about. "I think the idea for the product came about from the fact that we’ve been very conscious about sun care protection and sunscreens. Last year, [Iredale] received the seal of approval for our mineral powders [for natural sun care protection], and so the Tantasia product seemed the next logical step, especially for the consumer that struggles to tan yet wants to be a bronze goddess." She added, “I think it’s sort of a love/hate relationship that consumers have with tanners because they either don’t like the smell, the effect, or putting chemicals on their bodies. ... This product provides a more natural way of tanning that also looks more natural. In addition, it adds moisture to the skin, so it’s like applying a lotion."
In addition to the winners, the finalists were recognized.
Finalists for Best New Technology included: Beiersdorf AG, for its Glycerylglucose (Gluco-Glycerol) moisturizing technology; X-Rite Inc., for its VS450 non-contact spectrophotometer; and Silab, for its Retilactyl D natural anti-aging active.
