2022 Winners and Finalists

The Global Beauty & Wellness Awards Announces Best Cosmetics and Wellness Hotels in the World 2022

This year, the jury of The Global Beauty & Wellness Awards has honoured 48 winners and 94 finalists from across the beauty and wellness industries. The world’s premier independent beauty and wellness awards selected its finalists from over 500 shortlisted nominations coming from five continents, reflecting the excellence and innovation of the beauty and wellness industries.

Like every year, nominees in over 100 cosmetic product categories went through a meticulous ingredient and sustainability analysis. They were mainly judged on their effectiveness, innovation, packaging, and clean ingredients.

For this year’s GBWA edition, winners include major luxury brands such as Chanel, Sisley Paris, and Giorgio Armani Beauty, as well as cult brands Glossier, Summer Fridays, and Augustinus Bader.

The most trophies were awarded to Dr Tonar and NuSkin, four and two respectively in addition to winners like Milk Makeup, SkinFix, Tatcha, or Chemist Confessions. Innovative regional brands like soya garden were also among the winners.

This year, wellness hotels from all over the world participated in the competition. They were judged on their service offers, innovation, amenities, media, and visitor feedback.

The results were 14 finalists and 3 winners, including luxury resorts and spas, especially from Asia, Africa, and Europe. The Datai Langkawi in Malaysia or The Royal Mansour Spa in Morocco were some of this year’s winners.

In the cosmetics industry, NuSkin gained recognition from the jury members, receiving three awards in the Best Sustainable Skincare Product, Best Ingredient Skincare Product, and Most Innovative Skincare Product categories.

The skincare brand soya garden won as well three awards in the Best Sustainable Eye Makeup Product, Best Anti-Stress Face Cream, and Best Glow-Boosting Skin Essence categories. According to the chemical engineer and GBWA Jury Member Ivana Pur, soya garden’s Skin Essence product is very light, refreshing & hydrating. It contains effective humectants, emollients, and skin protectants.

Glossier was one of the jury’s favourites in the cosmetics and packaging categories. The digitally native beauty brand founded in 2014 has become a cult brand among millennials. According to the industrial designer and GBWA Jury Member Karim Rashid, the winning product Glossier You Solid is a nice precious organic object that is perfect for travel and having in one’s bag every day. The secondary packaging is beautiful simple paper pulp, hence biodegradable.

For the second year, German skincare brand Dr Tonar received multiple awards. This year it was awarded in the Most innovative Antiaging Product, Best Ingredient Eye Product, and Best Ingredient Facial Product categories.

The Global Beauty and Wellness Awards (GBWA) is a fully independent organization that recognizes outstanding achievements in brand innovation and sustainability across the cosmetics, personal care, wellness, and hotel industries – sectors that offer a major contribution to global well-being.
