NYSCC Suppliers’ Day Partners with Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) on New Beauty Award for Supplier’s Innovative Ingredients and Formulation All Things Beauty to Be Celebrated May 2019 in NYC.
The New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) has renewed its partnership with Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) for the international organization’s 2019 Beauty Awards by again sponsoring a special award for formulation innovation. The prestigious awards, now in its 25th year, are the only awards selected by the people who know beauty best – beauty industry insiders. The NYSCC-sponsored award, the “Supplier’s Award: Ingredients and Formulation,” will recognize new ingredients or formulations that bring innovation and new technology to the beauty industry. Mirroring the Academy Awards Science and Technical Achievement Awards, the winner of the Supplier’s Award will be announced in advance at the 40th Annual Suppliers’ Day taking place May 7-8, 2019 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. The winner of the Supplier’s Award will also be recognized at the CEW Beauty Awards luncheon on May 17, 2019 at the New York Hilton, an event that attracts more than 3,000 cosmetic professionals, including the “who’s who” of the industry. Any ingredient and formulation provider that has demonstrated innovation and new technology can self-nominate to be considered for the CEW Supplier’s Award. The submissions can only be entered from a supplier, there is no year limitation, and both natural and synthetic ingredients can be entered. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2019. A curated panel of judges from leading beauty and personal care brands including members of the NYSCC Scientific Advisory Committee will select the finalists of the “CEW Supplier’s Award: Ingredients and Formulation.” Finalists will be announced on April 2, 2019. “Increasingly, the line between marketing and formulation is being challenged and blurred in product development and this award highlights how all the elements and departments—ingredients, formulation and new technology—need to work together for successful product launches,” said Cathy Piterski, Chair, NYSCC. “From the beginning, the CEW Beauty Awards have celebrated innovation. When beauty products deliver on their promises, and bring joy to consumers, it is because of quality ingredients and creative formulation,” adds Carlotta Jacobson, President of Cosmetic Executive Women. “For that reason, honoring the best in beauty must include honoring what truly makes those products possible.” About NYSCC Supplier’s Day The NYSCC Suppliers’ Day is the main trade show and conference for beauty ingredients, formulations, and delivery innovations.
