ABIHPEC-ITEHPEC Innovation Awards - The 5th ABIHPEC-ITEHPEC awards is receiving applications until August 5th. Winners will be announced in September, in a ceremony held during the in-cosmetics Latin America 2019 fair

Established in 2015, the awards seek to provide exposure for companies, in addition to fostering development and the creation of a competitive edge for Brazil’s personal care industry. According to João Carlos Basilio, executive president at ABIHPEC, strong growth has been observed since the first awards ceremony both in the volume of applications and in the technical quality of the cases submitted.

The Awards work as a stimulus to produce increasingly better raw materials for our industry,” said Marina Kobayashi, Innovation manager at ABIHPEC. “It also reinforces the fact that research and innovation are the main drivers in the cosmetics industry, and are essential for the development of solutions that meet consumers’ most varied needs,” she added.

Each company is allowed to submit up to two work samples, which showcase new ingredients or formulations, a novel procedure for obtaining raw materials or even a new concept or market positioning. Companies eligible to submit their applications are all ingredients manufacturers who are themselves participating in the in-cosmetics Latin America 2019 fair or companies that are represented by distributors at the event.

With an international reputation for being one of the premier business platforms for the raw materials sector of the cosmetics industry, this Latin-American fair will host the 5th ABIHPEC-ITEHPEC Awards on September 18th, at Expo Center Norte in São Paulo.
