in-cosmetics Global Announces Winners of Its 2023 Awards The organizers of in-cosmetics Global, the world’s leading personal care ingredients show, are proud to have unveiled the winners of its 2023 Awards at a packed, in-person ceremony at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via (28 March).

In a record-breaking year that attracted more than 250 entries, exhibitors and visitors came together to celebrate the industry’s most forward-thinking suppliers and find out who would scoop this year’s accolades.

Europe of industry experts, hailing from all corners of the globe including the Americas, Asia, and Europe, were tasked with selecting the winners, a full list of which can be found below.

Innovation Zone: Active Ingredient Award

Scooping the Gold award for the Innovation Zone: Active Ingredient Award was CALMandrin™ by Mibelle Biochemistry. The sustainably sourced ingredient, obtained by upcycling the peel paste from unique organic Chios mandarins, is designed to improve the signs of aging, as well as soothe reddened and inflamed skin. In addition to its calming effect on irritated skin, it was also noted for its benefits in increasing the firmness and density of the skin.

Altheostem™ from Provital, Do Care took the Silver Award while BIOCOBIOME™ from Bicosome was awarded the Bronze title.

Innovation Zone: Functional Ingredient Award

In the Innovation Zone: Functional Ingredient Award, IFF took home the Gold Win for its AURIST™ AGC. The water-soluble, cationic biopolymer delivers conditioning benefits on hair, improving both wet and dry combability. Backed by strong bioscience capabilities, the natural-inspired conditioning biopolymer is readily biodegradable and easy to use in formulations. Furthermore, it can form completely transparent formulations including with anionic ingredients, and does not require pH neutralization.

Ingredients that are both biodegradable and deliver strong performance were also highly commended by the judges, with Aristoflex Eco T from Clariant and Evonik Industries’ TEGO® FILMSTAR One MB presented with the silver and bronze awards respectively.

Green Ingredient Award

Celebrating ingredients that make a significant environmental or social difference was the Green Ingredient Award, in partnership with Ecovia Intelligence. Taking the 2023 title Rootness Awake from Clariant – described as an “eco-friendly eye contour illuminator”, the natural active ingredient is extracted from the roots of the ipomoea batatas thanks to Plant Milking technology. It is rich in DCQEs (dicaffeoylquinate esters) and targets several mechanisms responsible for under-eye circles and eye bags.

Also recognized in the Green Ingredient category, this year’s Silver Award winner was A-Sensofeel MFC by Minasolve SAS, while SeaBalance 2000 by CarbonWave took the Bronze Award.

Rising Star Award

The Rising Star Award, which recognizes first- and second-year exhibitors, saw The Upcycled Beauty Company take the coveted title. As a leader in the upcycled personal care movement, the company has set out to change the perception of waste, making upcycled ingredients more accessible to beauty brands.

Roziani Zulkifli, exhibition director, at in-cosmetics Global, said, “Exhibitors at in-cosmetics Global continue to wow us with their imagination, pioneering use of science, and commitment to innovation. In what has been another record-breaking Awards cycle, we’re delighted to announce this year’s winners and celebrate these remarkable companies.”

The show continues to hold its position in the industry as a platform to launch the latest ingredients, bringing together the industry to network, source the latest ingredient innovations and gain insights from industry leaders. We share our congratulations with this year’s winners and look forward to welcoming exhibitors and attendees back to the Fira Barcelona Gran Via until 30 March.”

Sensory and Make-Up Bar Winners

In two additional categories, the winners of the in-cosmetics Global Make-up Bar Award and Sensory Bar Award were decided by an elite judging panel, live at the show. Exhibitors displaying the very latest ingredient innovations in the Make-Up Bar and Sensory Bar were put under the microscope by judges including representatives from Trinny London, Belcorp, Martha Tilaar Group, Coty Monaco, Chanel, Tolentina Consulting, Ausmetix Pty Ltd and Yanbal International.

At the show’s Sensory Bar, new and invigorating sensations were under the spotlight, from evocative fragrances and heavenly tastes to transforming textures. Scooping the Gold Award, Eigenmann & Veronelli’s Magic Eye Contour Powder-to-Liquid was recognized by judges for its excellent, soft sensory properties. Taking the Silver Award was STOCKMEIER Group’s Stockmeier – Your rock-solid partner, while Beauty Party – Symphonic Feelings by SEPPIC was awarded Bronze.

Meanwhile, offering inspiration for the next generation of color cosmetics, the in-cosmetics Global Make-up Bar Award honored the innovative pigments and technologies that offer brands a way to deliver captivating shades and hues. Taking the top title, Imerys scooped the Gold Award for its Natural blurring routine, while Lubrizol was awarded the Silver Award for its SilSense™ Bio 5, a sustainable silicone alternative for makeup with unique sensorial and performance. The final award of the night saw Kahl announced as the Bronze winner for its Make-Up Bar (with lipstick variations).
