Created by the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors association (ICMAD), a non-profit trade association supporting creative, innovative companies, with a focus on independently owned businesses of all sizes, the Indie Beauty Innovators (IBI) awards program is open to the beauty industry-at-large until May 30, 2019.
Entries are being accepted from brands, designers, manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors from small and large companies around the globe.
The IBIs celebrate innovation across product development, brand stewardship and overall talent in the beauty industry.

Here are the qualifications for each category, where you can also submit your entry.
