We show that the sum over planar tree formula of Kontsevich and Soibelman transfers C-structures along a contraction. Applying this result to a cosimplicial commutative algebra A over a field of characteristic zero, we exhibit a canonical C-structure on Tot (A), which is unital if A is; in particular, we obtain a canonical C-structure on the cochain complex of a simplicial set.
