Industry awards: The latest

The Sustainable Beauty Awards are among many to have been made in the industry in the past few weeks

In the Sustainable Beauty Awards for 2021, which are organised by Ecovia Intelligence to honour those who “are pushing the boundaries of sustainability in the beauty industry”, the winners included France’s IFF LMR Naturals in the Sustainable Ingredient category.

The firm won for its Sandalwood Oil New Caledonia for Life, which is based on a vertically integrated supply chain in Lifou Island to produce sustainable sandalwood oil according to fair trade practices. The runner-up was Provital of Spain, with its Ethicskic natural active.

Swiss firm Weleda won the Sustainability Pioneer prize for its holistic approach to tackling climate change, its packaging footprint, improving soil health and educational initiatives. AAK Personal Care and LMR Naturals by IFF were joint runners-up, the former for building sustainable and traceable supply chains, the latter for undertaking responsible sourcing and developing green solvents.

At the end of the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC) conference in Cancun, Mexico, the Henry Maso Award for the young scientists who published the best paper in an issue of the IFSCC Magazine in the two years preceding the congress went to BASF and CTI Biotech for ‘The world’s first 3D bioprinted immune skin model suitable for screening drugs and ingredients for normal and inflamed skin’.

The two companies joined forces in 2015 to develop and validate a new technology to produce multiple copies of 3D bioprinted full skin models containing human macrophages from the immune system, using technologies developed at CTI Biotech. BASF scientists will use this “to select innovative bioactives and ingredients for advanced skin care applications”.

In Barcelona, Vytrus Biotech won the overall runner-up prize at the Cosmetorium Awards 2021, organised by the Spanish Society of Cosmetic Scientists. The company also won the Formulation Award for its ‘Let it Bee’ nourishing nectar. This has Nectaria Lithops as the main active ingredient and uses levulinic acid in the preservative system to mimic bees’ strategy to protect the nectar against microbiological deterioration

Finally, Lubrizol’s ‘Improving Skin Oxygenation by Tibetan Adaptation’ won the Lester Conrad Award for the best paper presented at the Australian Society of Cosmetic Chemists (ASCC) conference. This described the firm’s newly launched botanical ingredient, Oxylance, a botanical extract of Ligustrum lucidum, sustainably sourced from the high-altitude mountains of China, which mimics the Tibetan genetic adaptation to low-oxygen conditions.
