Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 19, 2005
The Scandle (TM) “The Candle You Wear,” a body-safe candle that burns to produce a soothing and healthy body oil that can be used to enhance the health of the skin, was named a Finalist today in the Best New Products category in The 2005 (2nd annual) Stevie Awards for Women Entrepreneurs.
The Stevie Awards for Women Entrepreneurs, http://www.stevieawards/women, is an international awards competition recognizing the accomplishments of women executives and business owners. The awards are produced by the creators of the prestigious American Business Awards, hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” by the New York Post (April 27, 2005).
More than 470 entries were submitted for consideration in over 40 categories, including Best Entrepreneur, Best Executive, Best Young Entrepreneur, Best New Product and Mentor of the Year. The Skcandle was named as a Finalist in the category for Best New Product.
“We are thrilled to be a finalist for The 2005 Stevie Awards,” said Christine White, owner of Boudoir Baskets, LLC and developer of The Scandle. “We have taken special care in creating a candle that looks and smells as beautiful on your skin as when you light it. I believe our combination of healthy, high grade, natural ingredients has created a truly unique product that will awaken the senses of touch, sight, and smell in a way that no other candle or body oil ever has.”
“The winners and Finalists in the 2005 Stevie Awards for Women Entrepreneurs comprise the most dynamic women in business today. These executives and entrepreneurs have accomplished innovative and extraordinary things while building their businesses and serving their communities,” said Michael Gallagher, president of The Stevie Awards. “We congratulate all of them on their achievement.”
“We believe that our recognition in the 2005 Stevie Awards is one of many triumphs we hope to receive in our on-going goal of developing products that are not only good for your body, but good for the environment” said White.
The Stevie Awards for Women Entrepreneurs are governed by a Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors that features many leading women entrepreneurs and figures in American business, including Carrie Fitzmaurice, publisher for Entrepreneur Media Inc.; Dr. Lisa Krinsky, chairman & president for SFBC International; and Dr. Betty Spence, president of The National Association for Female Executives.
