How One Entrepreneur Is Changing the Beauty Market One Award at a Time

At 16, Manna Kadar purchased her first mall-based cosmetics store. Some 20 years later, she has built an empire and is changing the beauty industry, one award at a time. Her most recent is the 2022 NewBeauty Award for her product Sea Minerals Face Mist. The award confirms what many others bestowed on the company already have, that people love the product line and identify it as something special.

“It’s such an honor to be recognized by NewBeauty Magazine with this award. It is an authority in the beauty space, so it’s extremely validating,” says Manna Kadar, founder of Manna Kadar Beauty. “The Manna Kadar Sea Minerals Face Mist has been one of our best sellers for five years¬†and recently went viral on TikTok, but to receive this award is amazing!”

For the last 12 years, NewBeauty Magazine has tested tens of thousands of products, and only the best win its prestigious award. The Sea Minerals Face Mist acts as a toner for skincare, to refresh and hydrate midday, and as a setting spray to lock in makeup.

When it comes to what it takes to create an award-winning beauty product, Kadar shares her tips:

  • Be solution-driven when creating a product. She starts by identifying the challenges women face, and how they can make a functional and affordable solution.
  • Pack the most punch in one product. For a three-in-one simplified beauty regiment, it’s essential to pack a punch with the best ingredients and functionality. This was the approach Kadar took with the Manna Kadar Beauty Lipgloss, which contains a stain, primer and moisturizer, and was featured in the NewBeauty TestTube.
  • Create products that cross age groups so they appeal to more people. For example, anyone can use the Sea Minerals Face Mist. It’s a refreshing product for teens, adults or the elderly. It’s also suitable for any gender or skin type. Versatility helps make products more popular.
  • When a great product is created, people will want to share the news about it with others. Focus on creating something that really solves a problem, then that alone will make people want to tell others about it.

“I always say that when you look good, you feel good,” added Kadar. “My goal is to help people look and feel good because it helps them live their best quality of life when they do.”

The Sea Minerals Face Mist by Manna Kadar Beauty soothes, refreshes and invigorates tired skin using a mix of minerals. Additionally, it provides a hydrating base before applying makeup. It can be used to set makeup to keep it looking flawless all day, keeps skin looking hydrated and healthy, and helps to reduce shine to keep skin from looking oily.
