In 2019 we sold 6.6 million shampoo bars saving over 19 million shampoo bottles ending up in landfills!
Small but perfectly formed, our solid shampoo bars can last up to 80 washes, replacing the need to buy three bottles of liquid shampoo.
Invented at Cosmetics to Go, “Shampoo bars were one of the first patents that we ever achieved,” explains Mo Constantine. “Working with Cosmetic Chemist Stan Krysztal, we developed the idea of pressing shampoo needles and then adding in active ingredients for different uses on the hair.”

Our New shampoo bar is made with lots of stimulating ingredients like clove, cinnamon, peppermint and even nettles to get the blood rushing to your head and your scalp tingling. Our shampoo bars travel far and wide, so New is labelled with our #BeCrueltyFree message, a nod to our Fighting Animal Testing policy, wherever in the world it ends up!
In fact, we love being ahead of the crowd so much, we created a piece of packaging that quite literally fights climate change. Our cork pots remove more carbon from the environment than they produce, with each one eliminating 1.2kg of CO2e from the atmosphere.
The perfect bathroom accessory for any eco-activist. In July 2019, we received 6,000 cork pots by sail boat that came straight from Portugal into Poole Harbour - our first carbon neutral shipment. Watch the journey.
Originally named INASIA bars, back then we used to wrap them in foil, but at Lush we like them naked!
