Good luck to all submissions!

It will be reviewed by a committee who will make part of their determination based on the Green Star™ Rating, a classification system developed by industry professionals designed to allow the formulation chemist the ability to maximize the natural component in products. The higher the Green Star™ Rating, the more 'green' the product. When it is not possible to use the Green Star Rating directly, the committee has the discretion to apply different standard to pick a suitable candidate for the award.
Committee members will also consumer-test all submissions for usability, including, but not limited to: packaging, product description, product aesthetic, sensory perception (texture/color/fragrance), ease of use, use instructions, short-term performance, and others.
They will rate the products on a scale from 1 to 5 (1 being least favorite and 5 being most favorite). They’ll combine the number from the Green Star™ Rating with the number from the Consumer Testing. The formulation with the highest number wins. Should there be a tie, a vote where majority rules, will determine the best formulation and winner.
