Responsible Beauty Award


The CEW Responsible Beauty Award sponsored by Givaudan recognises a beauty product or product line that has most significantly moved towards the goal of improved sustainability. The Award aims to encourage steps towards greater sustainability within the beauty industry. Eligible beauty products or product lines must be currently available at retail in the UK.

“We at Givaudan are proud to be sponsoring the CEW Responsible Beauty Award for the 11th consecutive year in 2022. Our aim is to encourage companies to make continued efforts on the path to sustainability. Last year we once again attracted many high quality entries and we hope for even more this year.”

As mentioned at the Beauty Awards last year we are evolving the award into 2 categories for 2022 as follows: The ‘CEW Responsible Beauty Award for Excellence‘ to reward brands that are consistently performant in sustainability and the ‘CEW Responsible Beauty Award for Innovation‘ to recognise strong innovation e.g. in packaging, ingredients, formulation, life cycle, usage etc.

The application form remains the same and our independent panel of expert judges will decide the winners of each category. We should like to emphasise that each entry is judged by the application itself so make sure all your efforts are carefully captured on the form to give yourself the maximum chance of success.



  • Eligible beauty products or product lines must be currently available at retail in the UK.
  • Initiatives must be product or product line-specific, rather than corporate initiatives.
