Eggcellent news from Lush

The brand will be manufacturing egg-free versions of 7 of its products across hair and skin care

UK-based beauty brand Lush has stopped the manufacturing of some beauty products containing eggs, due to welfare concerns.

According to the brand, it has always used Free Range eggs but gradually shifted suppliers to meet the organic free-range criteria.

However, commercial hatcheries, where chicks are sorted into gender before they’re sent to farms, and described by non-profit organisation Kinder World as ‘one of the most horrific places on earth’, do not comply with Lush’s transparency efforts.

As a result, Lush has launched egg-free alternatives for its D’Fluff strawberry shaving soap, Hair Custard, Curly Wurly shampoo, H’Suan Wen Hua hair treatment, Brazened Honey face mask and Cosmetic Warrior face mask products.

Ingredients used to replace eggs include, aquafina, tofu, soya yoghurt and what gluten.
