Show organisers say voting will be carried out by delegates to this year’s industry formulation event on the first day, with industry professionals invited to sign up here.
Six finalists have been selected, according to organisers, and are in the running for the Laura Marshall Memorial Award, judged on the following criteria:
- How does the product live up to the innovation claimed? i.e. the texture, the appearance, the feel, the science, the principle etc., in written claim.
- Impact of Innovation
- Is the Innovation clear to the consumer
The companies behind the finalist entries are: Azelis (with Maskerade), Aston Chemicals (with Superfruit Splash Tint), Ashland (with Sensory Rebound Balm-in-Gel SPF 20), Surfachem (with Love Down Below - Intimate Post Shave Balm), Brenntag (wit Make Up Remover Stick) and Croda (with Skin Protecting UV Fluid SPF 50).
“The Innovation encompasses all aspects of the industry from the latest formulation to new test methods, an innovative packaging format, electronic advances and beyond,” say SCS Formulate organisers.
