An online petition has attracted more than 15,000 signatures to urge the Government of Canada to provide financial relief to the struggling beauty industry.
The beauty industry applauded some of its brightest stars at the second annual Beauty Innovation & Design Awards (Beauty ID Awards), held in Las Vegas during the Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) 2018 exhibition in July. In choosing the winners, judges focused on unique designs and formulations, as well as innovation in user functionality. In addition, one Audience Choice winner was picked through thousands of online votes. In the Skin Professional category, Dermaflash was recognized for its exfoliating facial treatment, which comes packaged in a distinctive and luxurious soft-touch box featuring interior compartments that perfectly fit each element of the treatment. Other winners included Algenist’s GENIUS Liquid Collagen, HCT Group’s Jeremy Scott x MAC (Grand Winner), Yanbal International’s Liberatta Noire (Audience Choice Winner), Naturelab Tokyo, LiLu Lip Balm Pearl, Kocostar/Lip Mask, and Express Tubes’ Choose Green: Eco-Friendly Packaging (Sugarcane Tubes).
