Lush invites street shoppers to wash their hands and  launches new soap bars! #LushSoap

  • Wash away dirt, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and viruses
  • A new soap – 13 Soap Unlucky for Dirt Soap join the new look all year round range
  • Palm-free nature, effective ingredients and packaging free

Lush did all we could to pass our soaps last few months, especially the handwash and hand sanitizer which had run out in supermarkets at that time, to hospital authority workers, charities and groups in our local communities. Also, we are offering street shoppers their own piece of soap peel to wash their hands on arrival at the local Lush shop. We believe that soap is better for the environment than liquid handwash in unrecyclable plastic pumps and also because it is a tried and tested route to the best hygiene.

According to a study on the effectiveness of soap and water vs alcohol-based hand sanitisers, soaps are physical and solid, not only are they highly alkaline which disrupts bacterial cell membranes and fungal cell walls, the alkalinity also creates a hostile biochemical environment for microorganisms. With viruses, the physicality of a soap along with the way in which it is used ensures that the virus can’t stick to your hands reducing the risk of transference via contact, hand sanitiser doesn’t have this benefit.

Mark Constantine OBE, Lush Co-founder & Managing Director recommends using soap and water too…

“The reason Lush is recommending washing hands with soap and water is because soap has two functions, it dislodges and washes away dirt, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and viruses.”

To understand more about the effectiveness of solid soap, Lush Cosmetic Scientist and Product Inventor, Daniel Campbell, discusses it further here.
