Q: IS MY BRAND ELIGIBLE?
The Dirty Thinkers’ Choice Awards will only highlight products that are clean by Think Dirty standards. Please review our methodology page and current verified brands to get an idea of the type of products that are likely to be eligible.
Q: CAN I SUBMIT PRODUCTS FOR MULTIPLE CATEGORIES?
You may only submit one product per specific product category, however, there is no limit on how many products you would like to submit per overall category. For example, under the skincare category, you may enter products in the toner, serum, eye cream and face mask product category but only one product per category will be allowed.
Q: WHAT ARE THE CATEGORIES?
Categories include skincare, makeup, hair, body, men, baby/kids, household, nail care, and beauty enhancers. Under each category, you may submit your products for individual product categories (for example: under ‘makeup’, you can submit your products for eyeliner, lipstick, etc.).
