Coty Inc. has announced that Lancaster's Sun Sensitive collection has become the first ever sun care brand awarded the C2C Certified Material Health Certificate at the Silver level from the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
The Material Health Certificate provides manufacturers with a means of assessing, optimizing and verifying its product chemistries for safety and the environment.
It is awarded to products that meet the Material Health requirements of the multi-attribute Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard. The award indicates that 100% of the ingredients in the collection meet the Institute’s criteria.
