Pevonia Botanica has won the Men’s Product of the Year award for its Easy-Glide Shaving Emulsion at the 2009 AsiaSpa Awards.

Hosted at Hong Kong’s Armani Bar on November 17, this year’s Asia Spa Awards ceremony was attended by over 400 industry VIPs, including Philippe Hennessy, CEO Pevonia International.

The company said in a statement: “Pevonia Botanica beat nine other finalists in the shortlist including Elemis, Thalgo and Payot to win the award presented by AsiaSpa magazine, Asia’s most recognised spa and wellness publication.”

Pevonia was also a finalist in two other categories including, ‘Spa Product of the Year’ and ‘Anti-ageing product of the Year’ for the De-Aging Tropical Body Balm.

Celebrating the best in innovation, quality and service within the spa industry, a total of 27 categories were voted by 28 independent judges. Other categories included the best distributors, spas, spa personalities, associates and resorts that set the benchmarks in Asia.

“The year has been a particularly tough one for the spa and wellness industry, yet some spas, brands and resorts have come out even stronger than before. The highly respected AsiaSpa Awards are there to recognise the very best of the best and push forward the whole industry to higher standards,” said Olivier Burlot, Managing Director of Blu Inc Media.
