HYgienix Innovation Award

HYGIENIX Innovation Award recognizes and rewards innovation within the entire disposable absorbent hygiene value chain that utilizes nonwoven fabric or technology in a way that expands the usage of nonwovens. Presented annually at the HYGIENIX Conference, eligible categories include, but are not limited to: raw materials, roll goods, converting, packaging, active ingredients, binders, additives and end-use products.

Companies are encouraged to nominate their own product(s) for the HYGIENIX Innovation Award™, but only one (1) product per company will be selected as a finalist. To qualify for consideration as a nominee for the HYGIENIX Innovation Award™, all nominated products must:

  • Be involved in some portion of the process and production of a disposable absorbent hygiene product.  Competition is open to all disposable absorbent hygiene products, components, fabrication techniques or nonwoven manufacturing technology utilizing a nonwoven fabric.
  • Have been introduced to the consumer market, or to the trade, within the 24 months preceding the event date.
  • Not have been selected as a finalist in any previous HYGIENIX Innovation Award™ competition and not have been a winner of any other INDA award. A nominated product not selected as a finalist or other award winner may be nominated the following year, but no more than two (2) nominations total.
  • Finalists must agree to present their product in person at the HYGIENIX™ Conference and to provide a digital 300 dpi/1MB high resolution image of their product for promotional purposes.
