Canus, Del Sol impress at ECRM’s Natural Beauty program


Canus won the Drug Store News/ECRMBuyers’ Choice Award for its Creamy Body Lotion with Real Shea Butter at ECRM’s Skin Care, Bath, Cosmetics and Natural Beauty program held earlier this month. Del Sol was a finalist for its Color Changing Nail Polish.

The products were selected from dozens of entries submitted by participating suppliers. Buyers were able to evaluate each entry and cast their votes based on product packaging and innovation via the Drug Store News-branded Buyers’ Choice Awards section of the ECRM Connect platform.

“Many of the buyers we spoke with during the session say that consumers are more educated on ingredients than ever before, and increasingly conscious of what they put on their bodies,” said Craig Chmielowicz, ECRM senior vice president of health and beauty care. “Both Buyers Choice Award winners have addressed this fact by creating innovative products with a focus on cleaner and free-from formulations.”

Nature by Canus is a responsible personal care product brand that distributes and sells fresh goat milk and plant extract-based skin care products developed to naturally preserve healthy skin. 

The brand’s Creamy Body Lotion with Real Shea Butter is 91% naturally derived and formulated to leave a flowery fragrance on the skin. It provides nourishing and softening benefits from fresh goat’s milk. The company said its ingredients are all sourced from responsible producers and that its products are free of EDTA, phosphates, parabens, dyes and colorants.

Finalist Del Sol’s products include clothing, accessories and nail polish that change color in the sun, returning to their original color without sunlight. The brand’s products come with lifetime guarantees and are designed to encourage sun safety via their Sol Smart indicator that lets wearers know when the UV index is too high. 
Del Sol's selection of color-changing nail polish ranges from glitter and matte to classic and shimmer polishes that change color in the sun, effectively providing two colors in one application. 
The nail polish — offered in more than 30 shades — is made in the United States under Environmental Protection Agency-approved manufacturing practices. The polishes are free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor, and are never tested on animals.
