Winners and nominees of the 2023 IT Awards
More than 120 new skincare and makeup products have been submitted to the Innovation & Trends (IT) AWARDS 2023 competition by exhibitors at MakeUp in LosAngeles.
After a first selection by the 9 international experts members of the Innovation & Trends jury, 23 of these new products are finalists in the following categories: accessories, formulation, full service and packaging.
These finalist products were tested by the jury which met last December and gave an IT Award to the most innovative and trendy formula, full service and packaging. There was no accessory prize awarded this time but two “favorites”, a formula and a full service product that seduced the jury members despite not being the most innovative.

FORMULATION IT AWARD
SKIN BARRIER LOTION SPF 50-B
Lotion for sensitive skin with a tendency to breakouts. Its 5-in-1 mineral formula provides broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, soothes breakouts, moisturizes and plumps skin. It can be used as a moisturizer and/or primer, and transforms upon application into a powder that blends from transparent to clear with a matte finish without a white streaking or flaking.
FULL SERVICE IT AWARD
A 100% biodegradable packaging and a formula based on a dermofusion technology that allows an optimal concentration of active ingredients and merges the advantages of anhydrous and aqueous cosmetics in a new “care veil”. Under the effect of massage, the texture changes from solid to liquid and fuses with the skin, offering an immediate well-being effect.
PACKAGING IT AWARD
CREME TOPIALYSE SVR
This new TOPIALYSE tube combines a 350 micron PE sleeve with the Ecofusion opening and closing system. It reduces the overall use of fossil plastics by more than 50% compared to standard tubes. The packaging is made entirely of PE and is therefore ready to be recycled as part of the existing recycling streams for HDPE bottles.
