Healthy-aging haircare, skincare, and wellness innovator brings home one gold and one bronze Stevie® Award in 2021.
MIAMI –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Global healthy-aging haircare, skincare, and wellness innovator MONAT Global Corp. (MONAT), received two Stevie® Awards at the 19th Annual American Business Awards, the premier business awards program in the United States. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie® Award winners.
“I am proud that Ray has been recognized once again by the Stevie® Awards for outstanding leadership.”
― Stuart MacMillan, President MONAT Global
MONAT won the following awards:

  • Nomination: MONAT Global CEO Ray Urdaneta
    Category: Entrepreneur of the Year – Retail
    Status: Gold Stevie® Winner
  • Nomination: MONAT Global
    Category: Company of the Year – Retail – Large
    Status: Bronze Stevie® Winner
“2020 was a difficult year globally for most retail, but MONAT was prepared and able to find the silver lining to continue the momentum from our growth in 2019 because we had the tools and community in place to motivate our independent sales force of Market Partners,” says Ray Urdaneta, CEO and Co-Founder of MONAT Global. “MONAT is only six years old, and the success MONAT has experienced is a testament to our incredible team. Being recognized by the U.S. premier business awards is impactful to our business, and I am thrilled that MONAT has earned this recognition.”
MONAT achieved remarkable milestones in 2020, including its expansion from haircare and skincare into wellness products. The rollout of MONAT Wellness—a five-piece, custom-formulated, and scientifically backed collection—sold a record-breaking $10 million in its first 24 hours, nearly three times the brand’s first-day projection and 10 percent of its aggressive first-year forecast. The Miami-based global brand attributes its rapid growth to its effective products, VIP customers, and its independent sales force, known as Market Partners.
“I am proud that Ray has been recognized once again by the Stevie® Awards for outstanding leadership,” says Stuart MacMillan, President at MONAT Global. “His success story shows that hard work pays off, and I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this award.”

TerraCycle Partnership for Recycling
TerraCycle, a global leader in the collection and repurposing of complex waste items, has partnered with MONAT to create a recycling program for MONAT product containers and reduce the amount of plastic in the environment.
Participation in the recycling program is easy and free: sign up on the TerraCycle program page at https://www.terracycle.com/monat and mail in empty MONAT Skincare, Haircare and Wellness packaging using the provided prepaid shipping label. Once collected, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be re-molded to make new recycled products.
“Since our founding, TerraCycle has made it our mission to ‘Eliminate the Idea of Waste’ and provide solutions for difficult-to-recycle items that are not traditionally recyclable curbside,” said Tom Szaky, founder and CEO of TerraCycle. “By encouraging consumers to rethink what is waste, this program helps build awareness that solutions do exist for items that may seem unrecyclable.”
“Partnering with a world leader in recycling like TerraCycle helps to fulfill our mission of maintaining a healthy planet by caring for our environmental impacts. It also helps us address one of the most important areas of concern to our stakeholders and our industry: plastic pollution,” said Miguel Pena, director of environment and sustainability for MONAT. “This is the first initiative to launch as part of the comprehensive sustainability program we’ve been very thoughtful to develop, which centers around three pillars as the foundation for our future, including a healthy planet, purposeful business and products, and joyful people and communities.”
New Products Designed for Sustainable Innovation
MONAT has also launched two new sustainability-oriented products, Sustainable Refill Pouches and Soothing Micellar Shampoo. Best-selling shampoos from MONAT, including Renew™ Shampoo, Volumizing Revive™ Shampoo and MONAT BLACK™ Shampoo + Conditioner, will now be packaged in the new MONAT Sustainable Refill Pouch, a flexible, environmentally friendly pouch that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, packaging waste volume, and energy used in packaging production. Soothing Micellar Shampoo is a sustainable, fragrance-free shampoo that is packaged in a 100% post-consumer recycled bottle, a first for MONAT.
“As MONAT grows, it’s critical that we look at our global impact and ensure we are positioned as a global leader in the health and beauty industry with a robust sustainability program,” said Stuart MacMillan, president of MONAT Global. “Building a healthy planet is an important part of our global impact mission and we have just gotten started by implementing this new partnership with TerraCycle.”

MONAT Launches into Wellness

Skin and Nutrition Boosters to Feel, Look and Live Your Best
MIAMI, Sept. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Global healthy aging innovator MONAT Global Corp (MONAT) unveiled its new Wellness Collection, a four-product lineup developed in partnership with holistic expert Dr. Brent Agin. Ranging from a vegan collagen-boosting powder to a pre- and pro-biotic capsule to a natural energy drink. The collection is designed to offer highly effective, low maintenance products that easily and naturally support inner health and outer skin and hair appearance.
“The keys to looking and feeling our best all boil down to three core pillars: proper nutrition, rest and exercise,” said Dr. Brent Agin. “We designed MONAT Wellness to encourage a positive, uncomplicated approach to optimizing these areas of our lives, supporting wellbeing as part of our daily routine.
The launch marks MONAT’s third category expansion, preceded by successful hair and skincare franchises that catapulted the brand from a social selling startup to one of Inc.’s Fastest Growing Companies in America, with more than 2 million VIP clients globally.
“MONAT is known for its commitment to healthy aging and the power of beauty, and that’s more than skin deep, said Ray Urdaneta, MONAT Co-Founder and CEO. “We found our consumers were actively seeking better lifestyle products to complement their routines, and that powered us to introduce a more 360-degree approach to inner health and outer beauty. We labored over the research and development to ensure unbeatable quality, unique ingredients, and strong benefits that live beyond their hype.”
Formulated as a daily routine or used individually, the range balances instant-effect products (MONAT Energy) with long-term solutions (MONAT Balance, Collagen Key™ and Total Greens). The new launches include:
  • MONAT Balance: A pre- and pro-biotic capsule-in-capsule with unique, delayed-release technology and a custom herbal blend including turmeric, ginger and rice bran.
  • MONAT Energy: A grab and go drink mix with 50 mg caffeine from green coffee, with adaptogens and bio-available B12 to promote more natural energy than espresso, without jitters or a crash.
  • Collagen Key™: A vegan support for your body’s natural production of collagen. Adds strength and resilience to your hair, skin, and nails.
  • Total Greens: An all in one powder infused with 37 antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, dietary fiber to support energy, and immune health.
MONAT plans to expand the line later this year with MONAT Sleep Drops, a soothing elixir to quiet your mind and relax your body for a restorative sleep without morning grogginess. Preserving MONAT’s signature balance between modern and nature, the collection’s ingredients are backed by science yet naturally derived. Consumers can purchase the products through their MONAT Market Partner, or on MONATGlobal.com.
