Lush Charity Pot Body Lotion

The beauty industry has traditionally been no friend to the environment. From residual product being washed down drains, poisoning our waterways, to an excess of packaging waste making its way into our oceans. The difference now is that the resulting impact is starting to be seen first hand, with dead marine life washing up on shore, bellies full of plastic, coral reefs dying-off at astounding rates, and even plastic trash making its way to the deepest parts of the ocean. The outcry from conscious consumers is leading to a reckoning for the beauty and bath industries to make some changes, with a few brands being first to step up with real, meaningful solutions. Lush cosmetics is one such company. Inspired to make a positive impact on the world, Lush has long placed emphasis on natural, high-quality ingredients, with strict policies against animal testing, aggressive efforts to reduce packaging waste, and support for Fair Trade practices and numerous charitable-giving programs. Lush’s bestselling Charity Pot Body Lotion supports a wide variety of charitable organizations, while also leaving your body feeling silky smooth. This Philanthropic Skin Softener contains mostly natural ingredients, including seven sustainably sourced from projects supporting regenerative agriculture efforts around the world. And with every purchase, 100% of the price (less taxes) goes straight to small organizations working in environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights. Lush’s success and dedication to eco-conscious practices and green initiatives is paving the way for a more sustainable beauty and bath products.
