Lush has always used natural preservatives like salt, honey and clay to keep its products fresh for longer. As a result, more than 70% of its range is entirely self-preserving – something not many other cosmetic companies could claim.
But that wasn’t enough, Lush has come up with an innovative way to re-balance its formulations, which means that the artificial preservatives can be removed from some of the products that you know and love, all without significantly altering the look, the feel, the price, or reducing the shelf life, and always with the freshest ingredients.
The original preserved versions will continue to be stocked, but Mask of Magnaminty, Ocean Salt, Dream Cream and Sympathy for the Skin are now available in self- preserving formulas – with lots more to come!
Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving
A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin – now in a self-preserving formula.
Easily smoothed over the skin anywhere you like, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it. There’s also mineral rich kaolin to nourish, antibacterial honey, and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells just under the surface of your skin to leave it looking bright and refreshed.
Ocean Salt Self-Preserving
Cleansing lime, coconut and sea salt scrub. Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water, then cleansing and refreshing it with lemon, grapefruit and lime juices. Fresh avocado moisturises and softens the skin, while violet leaf absolute calms and nurtures. Use it on oily skin every day and use it to refresh dry skin once a week.
Dream Cream Self-Preserving
A soothing and all-round dreamy hand and body lotion that’s suitable for everyone – now in a self-preserving formula.
This simple cream works like a dream on upset skin: cooling and soothing ingredients like oat milk, rose-water and chamomile blue oil calm down hot and itchy skin, as well as a blend of essential oils help to nurture skin: redness-reducing rose absolute, anti-inflammatory chamomile blue, antibacterial and antiseptic tea tree and conditioning lavender.
