The Personal Care Products Council accepted the top award in the Web site category from PR News for its consumer information Web site, www.cosmeticsinfo.org.
The nonprofit PR Awards are judged by a blue-chip panel of communications experts and given to applicants who demonstrate “best practices” in the nonprofit communications arena. The Council was presented two other awards earlier this year, both recognizing www.cosmeticsinfo.org.
“We are so proud of the recognition that CosmeticsInfo.org has received since its launch late last year,” said council president and CEO Pamela G. Bailey. “Our ultimate goal with this Web site was to create an accessible, unbiased resource for consumers and members of the media who want the facts about cosmetic ingredients and the science behind personal care products."
The Web site provides scientifically-based, in-depth information on ingredient safety and the safety assessment processes used on cosmetics and personal care products. Since its launch in November 2007, the Web site has had visitors from more than 14 countries around the world, including India, Brazil, France, Germany, Australia and Canada.
