The Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) honored many innovative personal care products at its Beauty Awards Luncheon on May 2, 2008. The primary goal of the awards is to recognize the most innovative products introduced in the previous calendar year. Winners were voted on by CEW’s 4,000 members, all female executives in the cosmetics industry.
Guaranteeing a hands-on environment for judging each entry in its best light, all product entries were showcased and CEW members cast their votes, which determined the finalists and the winner in each category. The 27 categories encompass cosmetics, skin care, hair, scent, and bath and body. Products were represented from both prestige and mass distribution lines benefiting both large and small beauty companies.
