Lush reported its highest-ever trading month in December, exceeding its forecasts and beating pre-pandemic sales.

Sales at the bath and body care retailer reached £40.5m in December, which was 13.1% higher than 2021 and 11% higher than 2019.

The company said sales from physical stores rose 18% compared with 2021, thanks to customers returning to the high street.

Lush added that the results were helped by its £7.4m investment in growing its retail estate across the UK and Europe, as well as collaborating with brands in the run-up to Christmas.
