Lush Collaboration

Known for its eco-friendly body butters and soaps, Lush Cosmetics pairs up with WSPA for orangutans.

Before you suds up or layer on some lotion, you may want to check to see whether your body potion contains palm oil, an ingredient that Lush Cosmetics has decided to eliminate from all its products. In an effort to save orangutans whose lives are threatened by the destruction of rainforests for palm oil plantations, Lush has joined forces with the World Society for the Protection of Animals to bring Charity Pot, a vegan lotion, to the market. With each purchase of this cocoa-buttery lotion, every single penny of the retail price is donated to help provide food and shelter for orangutans that have been rescued in Borneo. Borneo and Sumatra, the homes of orangutans, have seen 90 percent of all rainforests destroyed, thus leading to the possible extinction of orangutans within 10 years. Charity Pot is one little purchase that might make a big difference.
