Lancaster's history begins with an encounter between two passionate and visionary men: Georges Wurz, an important industrialist, and Dr Eugène Frezzatti, a highly qualified chemist and expert on cosmetics, who worked for major brands in the United States. Back in 1946, the two men have the genius to anticipate the needs of women who, after the long and devastating war, are daring to once again start taking care of themselves and their skin. They engage wholeheartedly in a project that is incredibly innovative for the era: the design of a range of care products especially for the skin's needs, which they call Lancaster.
The two men set up their laboratory in the Boulevard Princesse Grace, in Monaco. And this address turns out to be a very good omen: Princess Grace Kelly soon becomes one of their most loyal and enthusiastic ambassadors. Obsessed with the goal of slowing down the signs of aging in women's skin and enabling their beauty to shine throughout their lives, they enjoy spectacular success right from the start with their “Crème Embryonnaire pour la nuit”, followed by “Ligne Roset", which meets with the same enthusiasm.
Based in Monaco on the French Riviera where light is a unique source of inspiration and an art of living, Lancaster’s labs, obsessed by the Science of Light since 1946, deeply understand and master how light interacts with the skin. By offering patented skincare technologies that protect, maximize and revitalize skin inner luminosity as well as pioneering sun care that filters 100% of outer light, Lancaster enables people to enjoy the positive side of light and reveal their luminous beauty 365 days a year.
