LUSH Goes Dental!‏

The new LUSH toothy tabs are awesome. I wasn’t sure what to think of a dry toothpaste but I love them. You just nibble on one and when you start brushing you get the best foaming action. And my teeth feel really clean after. The flavors are weird and wonderful I like to switch it up each time I brush.

While peppermint toothpaste might be the norm, here at LUSH we challenge what’s expected and encourage our customers to think about the impacts of their beauty routine on the environment. Enter Toothy Tabs, LUSH’s newest invention that takes conventional toothpaste and literally strips it down.

Toothy Tabs are a brand new, patented idea from LUSH, these solid tabs eradicate the need for both packaging and preservatives, and come in a handy 100% recycled box. Each pack contains 40 tabs, you simply pop one in your mouth, crush it a little and continue to brush as normal with your toothbrush and water.

Toothy Tabs come in six fabulous flavours and feature the most beautiful natural ingredients and essential oils to freshen and perfume the breath, but also have antiseptic qualities used for years in dentistry. Only fresh, natural ingredients are used to clean the teeth beautifully, but each Toothy Tab offers something different – from a mouth freshener to a palate cleanser.

Toothy Tabs $3.95 are available at LUSH Shops and LUSHusa.com.

Sharks Are Friends, Not Food!‏

 

Did you know that the growing demand for shark fin soup and other shark products has fueled a decline in shark populations by over 90% in just a few decades? For some, the thought of sharks is scary but the truth is that they are necessary in maintaining healthy marine ecosystems around the world and their survival is hanging in the balance.

LUSH has teamed up with one of the leading marine conservation organizations, Shark Savers to bring an end to shark fining altogether. Launching today is LUSH’s limited edition Shark Fin Soap ($5.95) with 100% of the proceeds going to Shark Savers’ work to raise awareness for shark conservation. This ocean inspired soap has a decorative paper fin, is packed with seaweed and sea salt and will be available at www.lushusa.com and at LUSH stores across North America while supplies last. Help in the fight to protect our ocean’s sharks by putting down shark fin soup and picking up shark fin soap instead.

 

Alice Newstead a former LUSH employee feels so strongly she gets hooked for campaign!

Shoppers on Regents Street in central London likely got more than they bargained for this afternoon. In a dramatic illustration of how sharks are caught and killed for their fins, Alice Newstead, performance artist and former employee of LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, voluntarily had her skin pierced with actual de-barbed shark hooks and hung suspended from the ceiling in the window of one of LUSH’s busiest shops for all to see.

As a crowd gathered to watch in horror, Newstead said, “I am doing this because the demand for shark fin soup and other shark products is wiping out the shark population.” Unlike the 100 million sharks who are brutally slaughtered each year for their fins, Newstead commented, “I will be left with scars, but the wounds will heal.”

LUSH gives good hair!

LUSH is known for the frothy fun it brings to bathtubs and showers, but we get serious when it comes to giving good hair. All of our hair care products have a trained trichologist behind them, our founder Mark Constantine. Trichology is the scientific study of the hair and scalp, which includes the identification, diagnosis and treatment of hair and scalp conditions. LUSH is interested in TREATING problems, not just masking them – although we do like to mask the hair with nutritious ingredients from time to time. In an effort to help you manage your mane, we’ve created three limited edition haircare gifts launching in LUSH stores and www.LUSH.com on July 18th for the most common hair conditions.
