For the past 20 years, NewBeauty has been at the forefront of identifying leading beauty brands of the future. Early on, NewBeauty identified and covered now-household names such as IT Cosmetics, Drunk Elephant, True Botanicals, Tatcha and more. As we look ahead, we’re ready to discover the next big hits.
The NB100 initiative serves to identify and highlight the next big brands in beauty through a rigorous process of interviews, in-depth analysis, research and expert insight. All submissions will be individually assessed based on growth, innovation and impact, and evaluated by a team of NewBeauty editors and trusted advisors.
Early application: January 15, 2024 ($245)
General applications open: February 15, 2024 ($345)
Application deadline: March 15, 2024
In order to be named an NB100 winner, companies must demonstrate the following:
- A unique brand identity
- A meaningful value proposition
- Dedication to high-quality products
- Consistent investment in product development
- Proven track record of growth
- Strong consumer following
- Dedication to communities and consumers the brand serves
- Strong leadership team
Winning a NB100 honor holds significant weight in the industry, so the selection process is extensive and thorough. NewBeauty will accept applications between January 1 and February 28. Brands will be asked to complete the application with all relevant information to help differentiate their business from others. NewBeauty’s assessment committee will begin its extensive research process to identify brands that will move on to stage two, the virtual interview portion of the assessment. All brands selected for stage two (April 2024) will attend a virtual interview with a NewBeauty assessment committee member to discuss the brand and why it should be awarded. NewBeauty will select up to 100 winning brands across skin care, hair care, wellness, ingestibles, beauty tools, and cosmetics.
