The success of Lancaster beauty products is due to its long career in the world of cosmetics and a rich history that has led them to the prestigious position they occupy today. The company was founded in Monaco in 1946 by the chemist
Eugène Frezzati and the visionary industrialist Georges Wurz. From the outset it has been a pioneering brand in the research of cosmetic products.
The great leap to fame of the company came in 1971, when Princess Grace of Monaco appointed them as official supplier, with all the prestige and popularity that it supposed. That's when they released their first well-known line ("Ligne Princière") where they presented innovative anti-aging products. They also began to produce their first tests with sun care products that were those that have led them today to be leaders in Europe in this sector.
In the same line, Lancaster was the first company of cosmetics to include retinol in their products. With the slogan "Stop the time" the brand stood out from the rest by offering sun care products which included retinol and some antioxidant elements, providing a double action unique at that time. Following this success, they also began to offer makeup lines equipped with the same sophistication and glamour as their cosmetics. Besides this, Lancaster also successfully entered the world of perfumery in 1979, offering us more than 11 different fragrances full of originality. [read more]
