Winners of the Extracts’ Best New Product Awards were announced in late January at the New York International Gift Fair. Awards also were presented in five product-specific categories (Bath & Body, Beauty Accessory, Cosmetic & Fragrance, Natural/Organic and Packaging), with winners and finalists selected by a panel of trade editors. Criteria included innovative design, creative use of materials/construction and use of new materials/technology. Voluspa took Best in Show for its James Boyce Collection—candles created with apricot wax and essential oils designed to remove kitchen odors.
“These award-winning products represent an entirely unique, fresh take on the form and function of personal care products,” said Melissa Engongoro, sales manager, Extracts. The show featured approximately 100 exhibitors, and attracted global attendees who represented spa, salon and specialty retail outlets.
