The Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD) will introduce the Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award 2016 at inaugural in-cosmetics North America event, which will take place in New York City on September 7 & 8, 2016 at Pier 36, 299 South St.
The Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award is designed to celebrate the development of a unique active or functional ingredient that combines innovative science and product features in a way that demonstrates substantial benefits to manufacturers and end-users when compared to existing ingredients. ICMAD will appoint a panel of judges who will select the Gold and Silver Award winners who have launched a new ingredient within the last six months or who are launching exclusively at the show.
The Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award is broken into two categories; functional and active ingredients. Fifteen companies have entered and the winners will be crowned at the in-cosmetics Awards Ceremony on September 7th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Pier 36 in New York City. In addition, there will be two other Awards given: “Best Ingredient made from Recycled Ingredient” Award and “Formulation Challenge”.
“ICMAD is honored to partner with in-cosmetics in judging and awarding the Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award. Innovation and creativity is soul of our association and its membership. We are very excited to celebrate that philosophy with in-cosmetics North America,” said Pamela J. Busiek, ICMAD President and CEO.
in-cosmetics North America will run in partnership with MakeUp in New York, which runs on the same dates.
