Organic Monitor announces winners of the first Sustainable Beauty Awards

The winners of the inaugural Sustainable Beauty Awards were announced at a dedicated awards reception in Paris last week. Attended by over 160 executives, the awards reception honoured operators making a valuable contribution to the sustainable development of the beauty industry.

Award winners were chosen from three finalists, selected by market research firm Organic Monitor, the event’s organiser, from over 100 international entries.

The 2013 winners and runner-ups by award category are…

Sustainability Pioneer

The winner is L’Oreal USA - Garnier for its beauty brigade programme which diverts beauty packaging from landfill. Working with Terracycle, the programme has collected 2.5 million pieces of packaging waste and upcycled it into new products.

The Greek company Apivita is sustainability pioneer runner-up because of the social impact of its pastilles project. In partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières, Apivita launched sweet pastilles in 2012 with all proceeds given to social causes.

Sustainability Leadership

Weleda is winner of the sustainability leadership award because of its value-creation model. Since 1921, the Swiss company has spearheaded a number of projects that cover various aspects of sustainability.

The flavours & fragrances multinational Firmenich is runner-up for its holistic approach to sustainability, which involves partnering with NGOs and stake-holders.

Sustainable Packaging

The award winner is France-based Laboratoires Expanscience for the reduced packaging footprint of its Mustela range of baby care products. By deploying the ecodesign approach, it is removing about 60 tonnes of plastics from product packaging.

The Irish company You Organic Skincare is runner-up for the low environmental footprint of its novel packaging. It uses aluminium foil packaging pouches for its organic body care products.

Sustainable Ingredient

International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) is winner with LMR Rose Water Essential. According to Organic Monitor, “the ultra-concentrated material has a significantly lower ecological impact than traditional rose waters.

AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry is runner-up with Recentia serum, produced by Zeta Fraction technology, a novel sustainable processing technique.
