Welcome to Danish Beauty Award

Danish Beauty Award is going to be held in 2018 for the 12th time. Danish Beauty Award is an award in the cosmetics industry for the year’s best beauty products. Every year there is great competition to win the awards in different categories. The winners will receive their statuette at an award show in April. Suppliers from the beauty industry, press, retailers, sponsors and others interested in beauty will participate in the celebration. There is always hustle on the red carpet. Tickets will be on sale at Billetlugen – watch out for the invitation and sign up for the newsletter.

Categories include both luxury products and everyday products from the supermarket, but also professional products for hairdressers and beauticians. It’s about women’s fragrances and men’s products. Face cream and foot cream. Sun care and beauty treatments. 30 categories in total in 2018.

The consumer prize is one of the most attractive awards to win. This is the prize where consumers are helping to find the winner among nominated products. In 2018 the consumer prize is found together with Matas and Club Matas with more than 1.7 mio. members. In other categories, it is a panel of judges, who finds the five nominees and winners among the registered products but we also have an Influencers’ Choice Award and a sponsor award called GOODIEBOXPRISEN 2018.

All suppliers of products in the cosmetics industry can register products. The only requirements to be asked, is that the products are legal under the cosmetics legislation and launched in the previous calendar year. This means that products which are awarded in 2018, are products that have entered the Danish market during 2017. Except the classic of the year which should have been on the market for longer.

The 2018 award show will take place in Copenhagen at Tivoli Congress Center 20 April 2018.

Danish Beauty Award fmbh is an independent association. Founder and president is Anne-Dorte Mathiesen.
