    Customer and marketing at Lush

    Lush has a strong ethical stance. None of its products are tested on animals, nor does it deal with suppliers that do so. Its products are all made from fruit and vegetables, essential oils and safe synthetics and do not contain animal ingredients. In order to reduce waste, nearly half of the products are unpackaged – or ‘naked’ as Lush describes them.
