Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2012
Awards judges pay tribute to the supplier’s innovative packaging
HCT took top billing once again at this year’s Cosmoprof Awards, winning two prestigious awards for design innovation.
The competition was organized by Cosmoprof and supported by AD Architectural Digest to honor brands and their strategic marketing, packaging suppliers and contract manufacturers, and fragrance designers for their most innovative and inspiring design products.
HCT received a special Cosmoprof Award for innovative design for Clinique’s Lid Smoothie. Developed by HCT NJ, the Lid Smoothies are the first color cosmetics to use HCT’s patented award-winning zamac tip technology.
Anthony De Marco, executive VP HCT NJ, commented: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded a Special Cosmoprof Award. The combination of HCT’s cooling tip technology and Clinique’s long-lasting formulation has resulted in the Lid Smoothies becoming a huge success since their launch last year.”
HCT also took home the award in the best makeup contract manufacturer and makeup cases category for the second year running. The judges paid tribute to Urban Decay’s technologically advanced limited edition Book of Shadows 4. The package uses QR codes, which users can scan to download makeup tutorials. It was HCT’s second year in a row to be honored with this distinction in the best makeup contract manufacturer and makeup cases category.
