The Laura Marshall Memorial Award for Innovation

In recent years entries have tended to focus mainly on formulation formats but remember; innovation in our industry can encompass all aspects from the latest formulation formats to new test methods, innovative packaging format, electronic advances and beyond.  So, get those creative juices flowing!


Voting takes the form of a token to be placed in your chosen finalist’s display in the award zone in the exhibition hall. At the end of the first day the votes will be counted and the award presented at the SCS Annual Dinner.


The Innovation encompasses all aspects of the industry from the latest formulation to new test methods, an innovative packaging format, electronic advances and beyond.


The entries will be judged on a range of aspects covering ‘Does the product live up to the innovation claimed’ – such as the science and the novelty, ‘The Impact of the Innovation’- could this deliver a step-change for the industry? and ‘Is the Innovation clear to the consumer?’ – would the person on the street understand and appreciate it?
