Making the switch to natural body care products can be a challenge. Vegetarians, vegans, and those simply looking for better quality than big name brands can offer may have a hard time finding alternatives, especially at chain stores.
LUSH Cosmetics is an environmentally-friendly company specializing in natural, 100% vegetarian (and 70% vegan) body care products. They are committed to providing products that involve no animal testing in any part of the process-finished products are not tested on animals, and LUSH will not accept animal-tested ingredients from outside sources.
Those looking for a better body product can find everything from soap to deodorant at LUSH. The differences between LUSH and big-name cosmetics companies are many. LUSH invents their own products and fragrances and makes them by hand in small batches. Fresh, organic ingredients are used, all of them vegetarian and many of them vegan. Preservative use is minimal and, when preservatives are necessary, LUSH strives to use the mildest kind possible.
All of these factors mean that the products made at LUSH are fresh, easy on the environment, and provide maximum benefits to hair and skin. Natural ingredients means that no questionable chemicals are being absorbed into the body during use, and both skin and hair are left feeling truly clean.
LUSH is also committed to responsible packaging. In addition to using 100% biodegradable bottles and packaging, 89% of which is composed of post-consumer recycled material, they offer many products without any packaging at all. This “naked” product concept has led to the development of a variety of LUSH solid shampoo bars, solid deodorant, and even “shower jellies”-wiggly blocks of jellylike soap with multiple uses. LUSH’s bath bombs, bubble bars, and henna hair dye are also solid blocks and are sold “naked”.
LUSH shower gels, which come in bottles, can be used to wash from head to toe. This cuts down on the waste generated by needing multiple bottles of different products when bathing. And most bottled LUSH products come in small, medium, and large sizes, letting those new to the company try things out in small amounts rather than buying a huge container and deciding it’s not a good fit.
Those looking for better body care would do well to give LUSH a try. With their wide product selection, commitment to environmentally-friendly practices, and fun body care concepts, it’s hard to go wrong. LUSH products are available at LUSH stores around the US and Canada, as well as online at the LUSH Cosmetics website.
