Nomination Period Extended for 2012 R&D Awards

Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine has extended the nomination deadline for its 2012 Cosmetics &Toiletries R&D Awards, which recognize the latest innovations in personal care. The deadline has now been extended from Nov. 1, 2011, to Dec. 6, 2011.

Nominations may be made in two categories–Best New Technology and Most Creative Application. The Best New Technology Award will honor one new cosmetic/personal care raw material for its innovative design and/or method of development. The Most Creative Application Award will honor one new finished cosmetic/personal care product for the novelty and craft of its formulation and/or application of a technology.

Nominations are reviewed by an esteemed panel of international experts and each entry is judged not only on 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 between January 2011 and April 2012.

Finalists for each of the categories will be announced in January 2012 and the winners will be announced at In-Cosmetics in Barcelona, which will be held April 17-19, 2012. In addition, finalists and winners will be profiled in Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine.
