LUSH has always championed a minimal packaging approach, currently 52% of Lush’s current core product range is Naked, offering customers even more ways to go plastic packaging-free. Between 2005 and 2019, Lush customers globally saved 3,400 tons of plastic from being produced by using Lush shampoo bars.
“In Lush we work in an industry where the packaging costs the customer more than the product. Now, the customer needs to worry about how to recycle something they didn’t want to buy in the first place. This seems like a raw deal to us. If we can cut out all the plastic packaging, we can give our customers better value for money,” Mark Constantine OBE, Lush Co-founder and Managing Director said.
The biggest bid to kick plastic to the curb so far came in June 2018, when Lush opened the world’s first Naked Lush Shop in Milan, Italy, treating customers to an abundance of innovative and plastic packaging-free alternatives to your favorite cosmetics. Lush has since opened Naked shops in Manchester and Berlin.

Lush would love to serve all of their products up naked. But where it’s not possible, Lush uses their iconic post-consumer Black Pots made from 100% recycled materials. Customers can bring their empty, clean pots back to their local Lush shop. They are then cleaned thoroughly and shredded at the Lush Green Hub in Dorset, before being made into pellets, heated and remoulded back into black pots. This whole process is done in the UK.
In the Philippines, Lush is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, Estancia in Capitol Commons, Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 3, Robinsons Magnolia, Shangri-La Plaza, SM Mall of Asia, and TriNoma.
