NEW YORK, May 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) hosted its 24th annual Beauty Awards, recognizing the year’s most creative and innovative products. Winners were named across 47 categories, including indies, hair care, fragrance, skin care and cosmetics.

The CEW Beauty Awards are the only awards selected by industry experts who know the beauty industry best. CEW members selected 256 finalists from more than 1,000 entries representing 500 different brands. The winners were chosen from the finalists by CEW’s Board of Governors and a select group of beauty industry experts.

“As innovation in the beauty space grows, so does the abundance of products for consumers to choose from. Now, more than ever, the CEW seal of approval helps consumers navigate the beauty space to make their purchase decisions,” said Carlotta Jacobson, President of CEW. “That’s why the CEW Beauty Awards have become the industry’s most important recognition for brands and manufacturers.”

In response to the speed of innovation in the industry, CEW added several new product categories this year, including Indie Hair, Nutricosmetic Product and Niche Fragrance. And for the first time, the awards include two categories that recognize industry suppliers: Packaging Innovation and Formula Innovation.
