Lush SLS & Paraben Free Product List November 2015

 
 
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Lush. I love that they are cruelty-free and promote the fight against animal testing, and I love that most of their products are vegan. I love that their products use a lot of essential oils and that they smell amazing, and I love that their products are fun (and like a lot of people, I especially love their Christmas products!). But what I hate about Lush is that they use a few chemicals that I and many others wish to avoid, as well as artificial fragrances. So many times I have wanted to try something from Lush only to discover it contains something which I am sure does not need to be in there. The good news is, I have discovered loads of Lush products that are more natural and have decided to make a list of them to make it quicker and easier to shop more green at Lush.

All of the products listed below are free from sodium laureth/lauryl sulphates and parabens (and are all vegan). These are two of the main ingredients that people choosing not to use harmful chemicals wish to avoid, since they have been linked to skin irritation and endocrine disruption respectively. There are other chemicals which some people may prefer to avoid, but others may not mind using, therefore I have included such products in my list but have noted what they contain in brackets so people can choose whether to use them or not. These ingredients are: 
  • Propylene glycol - possible irritant and is thought to enhance the absorption of other chemicals into the skin
  • Talc - possible carcinogen
  • Triethanolamine - skin, immune and respiratory toxin/allergen
  • Lilial - synthetic scent ingredient that has been linked to allergies and contact dermatitis
  • EDTA - widely considered as safe but could possibly enhance the absorption of other ingredients contained in a product
  • Laureth 4 - possible skin and eye irritant
  • Alpha-isomethyl ionone - possible human immune system toxicant or allergen; suspected to be an environmental toxin
  • Octocrylene - UV filter that may cause skin allergies in some; can penetrate the skin and may potentially cause the formation of free radicals
  • Octyl methoxycinnamate - UV filter linked to endocrine disruption.
If you think any other ingredients should be on this list then please let me know and I will add them in. Below is the product list correct as of November 2015 (let me know if you spot any I might've missed). I will aim to update this list whenever Lush add or remove any of their products.
