The second edition of the show’s ‘The Wall - Eco/Beauty Edition’ rewarded the most innovative products, from design to finished product, expressing a particular attention to the protection of the environment; and saw the products displayed in the ‘Eco-Beauty Wall’ during the four days of the event.

The jury of experts hailed from Acqua di Parma-LVMH, Carlin Group, Certiquality ComfortZone Domus Academy, Italia Imballaggio and Wired.
So, without further ado, here are the winners of ‘The Wall - Eco/Beauty Edition’ 2015:
Gala Cosmetics won the ‘Eco-Beauty Formula Skincare Award’ presenting a BB Cream with a completely green formula, which it called BB Green. The project was awarded because it has been able to cross innovation, nutrition and sustainability in the natural, economic and social dimensions.
Fasten won the ‘Eco-Beauty Skincare Packaging Award’ for Eco-Pump delivery system, which produces a super fine mist, and also presented a double wall PMMA jar into a glass jar with a PP inner cup.
The award was also given to Verve, for the effort in the search for materials from renewable sources and/or recycled.
The company has introduced a line of Bio Plastics, which has the same characteristics of common plastics apart from the fact that thanks to its formula it is completely biodegradable.
Continuing on, Geka was awarded the ‘Eco-Beauty Formula Make Up Award’ for focusing on eco-sustainability at all stages of production.
MYC Packaging Innovation won the ‘Eco-Beauty Packaging Make Up Award’ for its make-up set in PETG with a double mirror; meaning once the product finishes, you can re-use the double mirror. The product was honoured as a symbol of how you can reduce the impact of packaging on the environment thanks to refill and re-use.
The ‘Eco-Beauty Technology Award’ was given to GPE Ardenghi A. for its pioneering use of LED technology in screen printing, an innovation that dramatically reduces energy consumption, radiations (not only the UV-A, but also the UV-C ones), and mercury and ozone emissions.
Pink Frogs won the ‘Eco-Beauty Inspiration Award’ for the attention they put on consumer’s awareness.
Elsewhere, the ‘Eco-Beauty Design Award’ was won by Italian start-up MKTG Industry, which presented make-up sets of recycled cardboard, which is unique in the field of secondary packaging.
Last but by no means least, Pusterla 1880 won the ’Special paper Eco Beauty Award’ for its cardboard boxes with special properties, so to transform the packaging of cosmetic products in jars.
