Lush's Vegan Foundation 'Eggs' Are Packaged In Wax Instead Of Plastic

The foundation comes in 40 shades and has a peelable wax handle.

Lush has developed a vegan foundation stick that doesn’t need to be packaged in plastic, as it is dipped in wax to create a peelable handle. 

The egg-shaped foundation “sticks”, which come in 40 different shades, will be sold in reusable and recycled cardboard boxes to keep them fresh.

The foundation, which is made from a blend of pigment and coconut oil, costs £16.95.

The products also contain Argan oil harvested by a women’s co-operative in Morocco, and will be on sale from this Friday [29 June].

In February, Lush launched a packaging free shampoo bar made from lemon and carrot oils with cider vinegar.
