Lush launches campaign to stop grizzly bear trophy hunting

On November 1, 2016 a documentary about grizzly trophy hunting was released on Lush Cosmetics North America’s official Youtube page.

We’ve been against animal testing for over 30 years and will continue to inform, encourage and participate in the fight for animal rights. We’re proud to say that the founders of LUSH have been passionately fighting against animal testing during all of this time, long before LUSH was even an idea. Since the movement to stop animal testing started, policies have been created to work with cosmetics companies and raw materials suppliers to end animal cruelty.
