R&D’s Time to Shine: C&T Announces Allē Award Finalists

The Cosmetics and toiletries (C&T) All prices will shine a spotlight on behind-the-scenes ingenuity in cosmetics and personal care R&D at an exclusive awards dinner, to be held on September 28, 2022, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York (co-located with Beauty Accelerate). Innovations ranging from cosmetic ingredients and product formulas to digital technologies and testing methods will have time to shine.

“This, our first year of Alleswas an intense process,” said Rachel Grabenhofer, Science Editor, Cosmetics and toiletries. “There were many very close notes, within a few points,” she added. “For this reason, in the coming weeks, once we have gathered all the relevant information, we will share the judges’ comments anonymously with all participants. We hope this provides constructive criticism; but also know that the competition was really so fierce.”
