From entertainment to consumer brands as well as collections in well-known museums, the nominees each have a different quirk that earned them a spot on the nominees list. More than 600 entries were received this year from companies across 22 countries, which were judged by a panel of 152 executives to create the nominees list.
The following are the nominees for best licensed product in the health and beauty aids category:

Three Crayola SKUs will be carried as permanent items in 2020 and will expand into additional international markets.
