Diversity matters

We are building a brand that represents the people of the world. It’s what you do that counts, and we are always looking to expand perspectives and voices to shape our future.
We see you, we celebrate you, we want you!

Who we are
You might know us as the inventors of the bath bomb, but there’s more to this great-smelling, partly employee-owned, family-run company than pioneering cosmetics. We believe our business should put more back into the world than it takes and demonstrate that capitalism can be a force for good.
The Living Wage Foundation’s statement ‘a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay’ is one that we are proud to commit to in the UK. As an accredited Living Wage employer, we put our people first and fight cruel practices like animal testing, promote regeneration, and show that it is what’s inside that counts – whether that’s an ingredient in a product, or the minerals in a smartphone.
The magic behind the Lush HairLab
At Lush HairLab, we take pride in providing an exceptional salon experience, tailoring our services to meet the unique needs of each client’s hair and scalp. Our dedication to one-on-one attention allows us to achieve authentic results that align with our clients’ personal style. Our primary objective is to offer an enriching and educational journey for our clients, empowering them with knowledge about their hair and scalp health while leaving them feeling fabulous both inside and out.
We are committed to assembling a dynamic team each specialising in an area of hair that truly ignites their soul. We hold a deep appreciation for the artistry of hairdressing and barbering and strongly believe in empowering our stylists to showcase their unique talents. Our objective is to create a diverse team that reflects the broad range of our products, and caters to all hair types and textures. By doing so, we aim to foster an inclusive environment where everyone feels embraced and their individual needs are met when they visit our HairLab salon in Brighton.

About Lush

Since establishing in 1995 in Poole, Dorset, Lush has been driven by innovation and its ethics.
Creators of pioneering beauty products such as the fizzing bath bomb, shower jellies and solid shampoo bars, we place emphasis on fresh ingredients like organic fruits and vegetables, fight against animal testing and combat over-packaging by developing products that can be sold ‘naked’ to the customer without any packaging.

We currently operate in 52 countries with 928 global shops. Through our separate business divisions we invent, manufacture and sell our handmade products direct to our customers through our own shops and online. The fact that we make all our products by hand is something we are really rather proud of!

Lush is 10% Employee Owned since 2017 and our people are the heart and soul of our business.

In the UK we currently have offices located in Poole, Dorset and Soho, London.
