In 1995 Mark Constantine (the boss) and his gang (5 convinced vegetarians with 10 years of experience in the cosmetics industry) opened the first LUSH shop. The shop was dedicated to what they did best: Handmade, natural cosmetics. The focus was on fresh and high quality ingredients, with displays inspired by fruit and vegetable markets. In all processes, from purchasing the ingredients to production and sale, they never lose sight of the environment.
They have come a long way since then, but they continue to do everything possible to ensure that LUSH remains a pleasure for customers and the environment. Lush uses only the best essential oils (you can smell it), the best cold-pressed oils (you can feel it), can't get enough of fresh fruits and vegetables (you can feel it too) and take the environment and animals very seriously (you don't feel it directly, but it is very important to the company). All Lush products are free from animal testing, 100% vegetarian, based on 100% palm oil free soap and 83% vegan.
