2023 WINNER Women Changing the World

“Women in Business” Award

Founder Jacine Greenwood has been named the winner of the prestigious Women Changing the World “Women in Business” Award for 2023.

This honour recognises Jacine's exceptional leadership, innovation, and dedication to driving positive change in the business world for women.

Roccoco Botanicals Makes History Winning A Cosmetics & Toiletries Allē Award

For the first time, an Australian beauty company has won one of the world’s most prestigious cosmetic awards at a global industry ceremony in New York.

Queensland-based Roccoco Botanicals won a Cosmetics & Toiletries (C&T) Allē Award (previously known as the R&D awards) for its unique 7 in 1 Ruby Crystal Cleanser.

The Ruby Crystal Cleanser, which reduces inflammation, is anti-inflammatory and collagen producing, was among 7 finalists from around the world in the Indie category. Previous winners include global beauty powerhouse brands Yves Saint Laurent Beauté, L’Oréal and Shiseido.

“It’s incredible news. I’m pinching myself,” says Jacine Greenwood, the founding Chief Cosmetic Chemist and CEO of Roccoco Botanicals from New York in later October where she was presented with the award.

"We’ve come a long way since launching from my kitchen bench in Queensland in 2013. Roccoco Botanicals is Australia’s fastest growing beauty brand – and now we’ve been named an international Allē award winner. I am a very proud to be bringing this award home to Australia."

"It’s especially gratifying and humbling to be named the winner by a judging panel which includes scientists from industry royalty," adds Jacine. “We won the award because they judged Ruby Crystal as the most innovative product of its class, and they loved the sustainability of it.”

The Ruby Crystal Cleanser contains active ingredients specifically selected by Jacine Greenwood such as Ethyl Linoleate, Jojoba Oil, Rose Absolute and Passionfruit Seed Oil.

"Skin is my passion,” says Jacine. “I’ve spent my life finding ways to heal, nurture and maintain acne-prone and sensitive skin so to be named as a global winner is an acknowledgment of my life’s mission and work."

The Allē award adds to Roccoco Botanicals’ list of accolades. It was named among the 100 fastest growing companies by the Australian Financial Review (2021); recipient of Financial Times Asia Pacific High Growth company award (2022) and Dayspa’s Professionals Choice Award (2020).

Cosmetics and Toiletries is a leading B2B media source which delivers in-depth, peer-reviewed scientific and technical content.
