This year’s Sustainable Beauty Awards are now open to entries.

 Sustainable Ingredient, given to a new ingredient with some sustainability credentials.
 Sustainability Pioneer, given to an operator that is a pioneer in some aspect of sustainability.
 Sustainability Leadership, given to an organisation that leads in various aspects of sustainability.

The closing date for entries is 30th September 2023. The finalists will be notified by 13th October, and the winners will be announced at a dedicated awards ceremony in Paris at the Crowne Plaza - République hotel on the evening of 30th October.
