While the final deadline isn't until September, submit your entry(ies) to the Cosmetics & Toiletries (C&T) Allē Awards before Aug. 24, 2023, to be included (with your permission) for free in the awards "sneak peek" in the Cosmetics & Toiletries (C&T) Nov./Dec. issue. The feature will highlight your company name, submission title and a brief description just for participating!
The C&T Allē Awards, presented by the magazine and parent company Allured Business Media, bring behind-the-scenes ingenuity in cosmetics and personal care R&D into the spotlight. The Allēs honor the scientific discipline, formulating skills, resourcefulness and creativity of innovators across the cosmetics R&D process — from active and base ingredients, chassis/blends and finished formulas (indie, mass and prestige), to testing methods and tools, commercial devices and digital technologies (B2C and B2B).
Judging and Eligibility
Entries will be rated by our esteemed panel of judges based on parameters including: novelty, utility, multifunctionality, sustainability, safety/stability/proof of efficacy, significance and more. Eligible entries must have been launched between June 1, 2022, and Oct. 31, 2023. (You can submit ahead of your launch). The paid submission fee ($425) and supporting documentation are required for each entry. Note that an additional licensing fee applies for using the finalist and winner logos.
