Every day, millions of Lush products are made: chopped, whisked, blended, pressed, shaped, and perfected by the skilled hands of our compounders, or product chefs if you like. This handmade process makes Lush products one of a kind.
We make all of our products in our own manufacturing facilities around the globe, and much like your favourite foods, Lush products need making in careful conditions and with a lot of TLC. A combination of fresh, active ingredients, essential oils and a strict freshness policy (all products must leave the factories within 28 days of being made, other than our Seasonal ranges) means a machine just can’t give them the attention and care they need. This means we employ hundreds of compounders around the world to hand-make our products. We also proudly display their names and faces on every product’s batch sticker.
