Lush Labs supports literacy with new solid make-up

Slap Sticks swatches

Lush Labs is once again doing us a solid with a new line of make-up, with profits supporting literacy, healthcare and women workers. Available in an impressive 40 shades and three undertones, the new Slap Sticks foundations come in solid blocks and are said to create a dewy finish.

Slap Sticks contain 45 per cent coconut oil for extra hydration, while bringing funds to Indonesia from where it's sourced. Ten per cent of profits will go towards funding a dentist and literacy classes on the island of Nias in Sumatra, says Lush.

Furthermore, there's argan oil in the vegan-friendly formulation, harvested by a women’s co-operative in Morocco, plus Peruvian jojoba oil, and candelilla, sunflower and Turkish rose waxes.

As a solid product dipped in a bit of wax and packaged in a recycled and recyclable cardboard box (Lush recommends you keep it in a reusable container for freshness), the brand is continuing its campaign for plastic-free products.

"Making foundation, a staple in many people's daily routine, solid, is a major leap forward to reducing plastic packaging without compromising on quality or effect," comments Rowena Bird, Lush Co-founder and Product Inventor.
