The #GoNaked Lush Christmas || 2017 Edit || Rivet Licker

Every year, Lush puts on a display of conceptually inspired products for their Christmas range. This year is no different.

The #GoNaked theme seeks to offer the consumer a range of products that do not need packaging - so you get all the product you’re paying for, and not a bunch of paper and plastic, waiting to be thrown out.


In an effort to further their eco-friendly beauty range, Lush have created Naked versions of liquid products to give consumers a choice. Not only does this mean that you can choose to go plastic-free this holiday season, but you get the same bang for your buck! All products in this year's collection are 100% VEGAN!


Naked Shower

The idea of the naked shower gel has confused everybody, because a lot of people (myself included), have said “well, that’s just soap”. Here is the full explanation.

Chemically speaking, the solid shower gels are technically soap-free, like their liquid counterparts, as the cleansing base is not made the traditional way. To make soap, fats and oils are mixed with a strong basic compound such as Sodium Hydroxide (or Potassium Hydroxide for classic liquid soap), and are heated then poured. The liquid products are made with surfactants derived from vegetable oils. Slightly different formulations, but they do the same thing – cleanse.

Snow Fairy (I hate the stuff, but it’s popular) has returned as a cold cured soap. This method of soap making can take weeks (rather than hours) to be fully usable.

The Butterbear Wash Card is made from cellulose and has the familiar sweet and buttery fragrance of its bath bomb cousin. This is an ideal on-the-go product – just find your nearest tap!
