Friend of the Sea Certifies LR Health & Beauty for Sustainability with Omega 3 fatty acids

Leading manufacturer and distributor of cosmetics and nutritional supplements qualifies for eco-label.

Friend of the Sea (FOS), the international authority and certification standard for products and services that respect and protect the marine environment, has certified LR Health & Beauty for sustainability with Omega 3 fatty acids. Fish is a source of Omega 3 fatty acids, so sustainability is a serious issue for its production. With this certification, LR Health & Beauty can display the Friend of the Sea eco-label on its products.

“It’s very gratifying to see companies in the health and beauty industry step and commit to sustainability for the marine-based products they use,” says Paolo Bray,Director of Friend of the Sea. “It’s a major category regarding the preservation of the marine environment.” Omega 3 fatty acids are used extensively in the treatment of skin disorders. LR Health & Beauty includes Omega 3 fatty acids in food supplement products.

Based in Ahlen, Germany, LR Health & Beauty is one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of aloe vera products. With 1,100 employees as well as thousands of registered sales partners and customers, LR is one of Europe’s leading direct sales enterprises.
