Born under the sun of the French Riviera in 1946, the Lancaster brand is celebrating its seventieth birthday in 2016. Seven decades of innovation and one on-going quest: protection from the sun’s rays to keep skin looking beautiful. A dream that has become a mission.  The Lancaster Laboratories have dedicated their research to expertise in light rays, establishing the impact of light on skin ageing. Thanks to its unique knowledge of light, Lancaster has always kept one step ahead of scientific advances and has ceaselessly innovated in the realm of everyday oxidative stress, whether pollution, stress, fatigue or modern life. These scientific discoveries make the Lancaster brand the environmental beauty expert in safe tanning to keep skin healthy and looking young.
