Recognizing the Power of Beauty Packaging Design, Formulation and Technology.
A one-of-a-kind celebration, Cosmoprof Asia Awards are held each November at Cosmoprof Asia in Hong Kong. The prestigious event honors those creators who dare to change the face of beauty, and acknowledges their fascinating contribution to fresh ideas and products in the beauty sector. These innovators include brands and manufacturers in cosmetics, hair, skin, nail care, and beauty salon products.
The event gathers exhibitors from each segment of the beauty industry — from raw materials to formulation, packaging to OEM/ODM, and machinery to finished products. The Cosmoprof Asia Awards feature an international panel of judges who are influential in the world of beauty. Judges include Britta Fleck, President & Managing Director at Glossybox – USA, Jisa Paek, Beauty Director – Vogue Korea, and Louis Houdart, Founder Managing Director – Creative Capital, China.
There are two main award groups: Innovation Circle and Beauty Circle. Innovation Circle brings awareness to brands that have an outstanding beauty product that encompasses formulation, technology, and packaging design. Entries in the Innovation Circle are awarded based on creativity, sustainability and execution.
Beauty Circle, on the other hand, highlights innovative choices in hair, nail, skincare, color cosmetics and beauty salon products. Entries in the Beauty Circle are awarded based on marketability, marketing impact, the capacity of the exhibitor to create strong brand building and promotion while cultivating relationships. Two additional areas include social media impact and the ability to maintain a strong online presence.
