EX•TRACTS, a division of the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF), that covers the latest in beauty and cosmetic products, recently presented its Best New Product Awards. The awards are given twice a year in five categories: Bath & Body, Beauty Accessory, Cosmetic & Fragrance, Natural/Organic, and Packaging. The judges include a panel of trade and consumer editors, one of whom is our own Editorial Director, Candice Sabatini.

Winners and finalists in each category are judged on innovative design, creative use of materials and construction as well as use of new materials and technology. Many of these products are great for early holiday shopping or to treat yourself to some truly innovative, natural pampering.
