Lush is thrilled to announce the release of their first graphic novel... On The Trail Of Sandalwood Smugglers
Join our daring duo, Agnès Gendry and Simon Constantine, on their journey into the shady underworld of sandalwood smuggling. This rip-roaring true tale of deceit, duplicity and decapitation stretches the globe as our pair sniff out the real nature of sandalwood, and find more than they bargained for.
Written by Simon and Agnès, and illustrated by Chicago-based Steve Krakow aka Plastic Crimewave, this book gives readers a fascinating insight into our buying team's journey as they source sandalwood. It's an essential read for anyone interested in the stories behind the people and ingredients that go into our products.
"We go to such lengths to inform ourselves, to ensure we use and buy sustainable, honest, quality ingredients and in the course of doing this we encounter such incredible people and have some surreal and exciting adventures and we thought it was important to share this," Agnes explains.
"Sandalwood is a beautiful oil which has been used for centuries, it is an oil we love and we are very excited to be able to tell its complex and amazing story."
On the Trail of Sandalwood Smugglers is now on sale in UK Lush shops and UK online for £9.95.
