A new hashtag conversation, #LushLabs will showcase innovation and creativity fresh from the lab

New and exclusive product innovations launched digitally on the 29th of each month (starting April 2018)

Digital launches supported with online conversation through #LushLabs encouraging open feedback from Lush customers whilst showcasing the work of Lush product inventors.

Introducing ideas that push the boundaries of cosmetics, #LushLabs will invite Lush communities into the research and development process of brand new, never been seen before products. Kickstarting with their first launch on Sunday 29th April 2018, Lush fans will be able access, buy and offer feedback on innovative #LushLabs exclusive products. All feedback will be taken on-board and used to ensure that everything- from the products to the way Lush talk about them - is fresh and ahead of the game.

All products will be selected by Lush product inventors and made fresh by hand in small batches using only the best ingredients - once they’re gone they are gone! Every product will be fully safety tested before being released, offering customers the very first chance to try new innovations.

“The Lush Labs is an opportunity for myself, and the rest of the inventors at Lush, to flex our imaginations and show off exactly what is possible. Whenever you pick up a product from the Lush Labs, you’ll do so in the knowledge that you will be among the first to try out a fresh invention. With every comment, reaction and critique you send back to us, that product’s future will change. Some will hit the big time and go on to be featured on the shop shelves of your local Lush; some will be confined to the annals of Lush history. The ones that make the grade will be better for having been shaped by individuals (that includes you by the way), not an industry.” Jack Constantine, Lush CDO

Why the 29th of each month?

29 High Street (Poole) is the original R&D lab where the Lush Co-founders came up with the first ever Lush inventions. Launches will happen on the 29th of each month. Add the date to your diary!

“With your help, joining and sharing in the conversations, we can redefine what "normal" means for cosmetics and shake the sameyness out of our bathroom shelves.”Jack Constantine, Lush CDO
