Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine's In Sight column, "Formulating Ferulic Acid for Antioxidation," has been named a finalist for the FOLIO: 2010 Eddie Awards. Written by Katie Schaefer for the June 2009 issue of Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine, the column was nominated in the B-to-B single science article category. The article describes a process through which vegetable oil, in this case soybean oil, can be given antioxidant and UVA/UVB protective capabilities.
Other Eddie finalists in the category include: “Synthetic Biology‐The Devil Is In the Financial Details,” an article appearing in the July 2010 issue of Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News; and “Where’s the Superfood?" an article appearing in the September 2009 issue of The Scientist.
The annual awards program, which spans all corners of the magazine publishing industry, recognizes the best in editorial and design. It is one of the largest and most inclusive awards programs of its kind in the industry. FOLIO: will name the bronze, silver and gold award winners during an awards luncheon, to be held on Jan. 13, 2011, in New York City.
