Lush is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

Lush pledges that the brand does not conduct, contract out or fund animal testing in the developing, manufacturing or marketing of their products. Whilst Lush recognises the importance of customer safety, the brand believes this can be sufficiently achieved without animal cruelty. Lush is cruelty free and stands against animal testing. Furthermore, Lush does not export its products to mainland China and/or other countries, where animal testing is required by law.

Cruelty free statement

Lush do not test on animals, do not use materials that contain animal derivatives that are unsuitable for vegetarians and only buy raw materials from companies that are not involved in the use of, or commission the use of, animals for testing and have no plans to do so in the future. We believe that animal testing is not acceptable.


Lush is a British mid-range fresh, handmade cosmetics brand.

In 2012 Lush introduced the Lush Prize, a £250.000 initiative to end or replace animal testing worldwide.

Vegan status

Not all Lush products are suitable for vegans. However, all Lush products are suitable for vegetarians. Please always check the ingredient list of the product before making a purchase.

Vegan statement

Lush is a vegetarian company, but we’re not completely vegan. At present, around 80% of our products are suitable for vegans, but there are a few ingredients like milk, honey, lanolin and eggs, which are beneficial for the skin or hair, and which we use in some of our products. However, we always keep vegans in mind when formulating new products, and we try to ensure that there is a vegan alternative available in all of our different ranges.
