We received over 250 submissions for the seven categories, which included five ingredient categories, Best Indie Beauty Product and Woman of the Year, across the regions our titles represent, Asia Pacific, The Americas and Europe. A very big thank you to all those companies and individuals for their time and commitment to the competition.
The dedicated panel of judges for each of the three regions was highly impressed with the caliber and quality of the submissions, which made the judging process all the harder.
However, in every category there was one submission in particular that stood out from the others and we are now very pleased to announce them as the winners for each region, giving them an automatic entry into our Global competition.
