The CEW Eco Beauty Award recognizes a beauty product or product line that has moved
toward the goal of sustainability. The Award was established to encourage taking
steps towards sustainability within the beauty industry. Eligible beauty products
or product lines must have been introduced within the past 3 years, and be currently
available at retail in the U.S.
The criteria for this award are based upon the below science-based sustainability
principles1 promoted by The Natural Step.
The CEW Eco Beauty Award supports products that are seeking to reduce and eventually
eliminate their contribution to each problem and by doing so become more sustainable.
How Are Eco Entries Scored?
Products will be scored on a scale of 1-5 at each life cycle stage through the lens of each sustainability principle on the matrix. Total lack of information in any life cycle will result in a scoring of 1 for the particular life cycle stage and sustainability principle. It’s important that you provide us with as much information as possible on the matrix submission form as finalists will be ranked from the top highest scores.
