Oh shucks. Please send Marie (firstname.lastname@example.org) a note. If possible, re-do what you were trying to do but before pressing the button (ie. before you get the error message), take a screen shot. Share this screen shot with us - this helps us provide support in a timely manner.
We encourage the brands to engage with all the #cleanbeautyawards content on social media — this is when judges share their honest reviews, where we publish blog content based on the participants (like this post about the FaceOils that participated in the Awards https://www.cleanbeautyawards.com/blog/22-amazing-face-oils-for-every-skin-type and this post about the 37 face serums for every skin type https://www.cleanbeautyawards.com/blog/serums-for-literally-every-skin-type) and share content about the participants on social media as well.
• Call for Entries
• Brands register and enter their products in the Awards programme online - enter here. When call for entries is over, the brands will ship one unit of each product to the selected judges.
• Judging the Products
• Judging is done by an external panel of green beauty experts/advocates who will rank each product (up to 7) based on performance within the same category (ie. 7 face serums) on efficacy and performance. Scores are then compiled and averaged to determine the top performing products in each category. While judges work hard to test each product, we introduce the participating products to our health conscious community - on our website, blog, social media and mailing list.
• Celebrate the Winners
• Winners are declared! Proudly boast your huge win and be celebrated by a community of health conscious shoppers and clean beauty advocates! Finalists and winners use the badges on products, packaging, web pages and marketing materials to both consumers and retailers to distinguish themselves as trailblazers in the clean beauty sector.
The announcement of winners is on February 2024
There will be a press release announcing the Winners as well as an online Awards ceremony. The list of Finalists/Winners will also be featured in the 2024 Shopping Guide and there will extensive content marketing opportunities. The panel of 150+ clean beauty advocates will be celebrating with all of you as well!
