Coty lands industry-first with sustainability certificate for Lancaster
Coty's Lancaster Sun Sensitive range has become the first ever sun care-line to receive a Silver C2C Certified Material Health Certificate from the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
The clean, vegan and ocean-friendly sun care range had to meet a wide array of strict sustainability criteria in order to receive the certification, which will also serve as the foundation for further improving the sustainability and product safety of sun care products over time, Coty said.
The Lancaster Sun Sensitive collection provides broad sun protection targeting 100% of sun spectrum through a clean, minimalistic, vegan formula providing even sensitive skin with a delicate golden glow.
The products also feature an ocean friendly UV filter system and packaging made of a minimum of 50% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) materials.
Coty chief executive officer Sue Y Nabi said: “Sustainability is the ultimate driver of innovation and brands like Lancaster are creating outstanding products that are truly clean and green.
“Today’s consumer rightly expects that their favourite products also deliver when it comes to environmental performance.
“It’s our approach to product innovation that sets Coty apart and these industry firsts reflect the expertise of our teams and our brands.”
Dr Christina Raab, vice president of strategy and development for the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute added: “Beyond leading the way in sun care with the first C2C Certified Material Health Certificate in the category, Coty is also paving the way towards greater product safety, transparency and innovation throughout the beauty industry.”
