Lush is launching a waste-free collection of face oils and cleansing balms
The popular beauty brand is changing the game
The internet's favourite beauty brand is changing the game
Once pigeonholed as a category for the supremely sensitive or devoutly ethical, eco-friendly beauty and skin care is having its moment in the limelight. Now, more than ever before, brands are ditching redundant packaging, eschewing toxic chemicals and synthetics and supporting sustainably-sourced, plant-derived ingredients. The front-runners in this category are without a doubt Lush Cosmetics.
Beyond sparkling bath bombs and soothing lotions that are good enough to eat, Lush offers a bevy of beauty products that are cruelty-free, vegan and breaking barriers in the industry. Case in point: Lush's new naked collection. Once sold exclusively in Lush Naked boutiques in Milan and Berlin - the revolutionary cleansing balms and face oils are launching in Australia on May 2nd.
Going naked is not new to Lush. Anyone who has ever walked past a Lush Cosmetics store can attest to the fact that you can smell it before you see it. That's because their cult-status bath bombs and soaps are already package-free. But, in a time when plastic pollution is a growing problem, it makes even more sense to push the boundaries a little further.
