This is the fifth year the awards have run, and this year sees a change in the award categories: organisers have added an extra category - or rather split an existing one in two.
This means that in 2019 there will be a Best Skin Friendly Product for Women Face and one for Body as two separate awards.As such, the following is the full list of categories open for entries:
Best Skin Friendly Product for Children
Best Skin Friendly Product for Women Face
Best Skin Friendly Product for Women Body
Best Skin Friendly Product for Men
Best Skin Friendly Product Chosen by Consumers
Best Skin Friendly Products for Household
Best Skin Friendly Product for Institutions/Professionals
The deadline for registration of products for AllergyAward2019 is January 22, 2019. The awards are then marked by an awards ceremony, which for this edition is to be held in Malmo, Sweden.
AllergyAwards: an overview
“The aim with AllergyAward is first of all to give a thumbs up to all the people spending every working hour making skin-friendly products, thus making it easier to live a skin-friendly life,” explain the event organisers.
“Second of all, we would like to make the gap between researchers and producers a little bit smaller. Finally, we want to use AllergyAward to tell the world about skin allergy and how to prevent it.”
The AllergyAwards are relevant to brand owners, private label producers, product developers, bloggers, journalists, students within dermatology, those working with skin allergy in some aspect, a nurse, or if you simply just want to know more about skin and allergy, according to the organisers - AllergyCertified.
Criteria for products
In order to register a product for AllergyAward your products need to be skin-friendly.
“Our toxicologist will go through the declaration of each product before it is sent to the appropriate judges. The products do not need to have any kind of labelling whether it be in the area of allergy nor environment.”
