Fending off seven other suppliers that have launched new products in the last six months, SCT took home the Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Gold Award for FSP Surface Treatment Technology.
Cosphatech LLC clamied the Silver prize for Neosome EM Ultrafill, an advanced delivery system formed by a multi-lamellar liposomal.
SCT impressed the judges with its FSP Surface Treatment Technology. Containing both hydrophobic and lipophobic properties for long-lasting make-up, it is resilient to perspiration, sebum and humidity. It achieves this without any compromise on smoothness during application and compressibility for use with pressed powders.
“This award recognizes the development of a novel active or functional ingredient featured in the in-cosmetics North America Innovation Zone. There were many inspiring entries this year that combined innovative science and product features to provide demonstrable differences to existing ingredients,” noted Pam Busiek, president and CEO of ICMAD, who presented the winners with their awards.
The entries were chosen by an esteemed judging panel, including representatives of Locke Lord, Elysee Scientific Cosmetics, LEC Associates and Steinberg & Associates.
