April 1, 2014

AUSTRALIA: Kismet Jardin has won IAIR global award for innovation and sustainability in the beauty and health category. Held at Sheraton Towers, Hong Kong, the IAIR award ceremony was attended by more than 400 international guests.

“The current image of beauty and glamour is unsustainable, the substances used in personal care products (perfumes and cosmetics) can cause damage to living organisms and the environment,” said Manoj Jain, director R&D, Kismet Jardin Pty Ltd.

“It is, therefore, urgently necessary to seek solutions which would contribute to a general improvement of this rather negative and continuing situation. Beauty, glamour and luxury cannot be sustained without healthy bodies and living environment. Water, air and soil protection is a universal problem for the continued existence of mankind, and the management of this problem requires cooperation between all industry sectors and countries,” Jain added.
