Lush Father's Day Collection 2016


Lush is one of my favourite companies coming from an ethical standpoint, so when I discovered that their new Father's Day Collection this year was using ethically and sustainably sourced Sandalwood, I had to check it out. Sandalwood is extremely valuable and has led to the rise of illegal smuggling. Lush use approximately 600-700kgs of certified organic Australian sandalwood per year which is sustainably farmed in collaboration with Indigenous communities in the Kalgoorlie region of Australia. For every kilogram of sandalwood bought by Lush Australia, $50 AUD is then contributed towards an Indigenous working fund for sandalwood.

"Aboriginal custom dictates that wealth should be shared around the community, so helping harvesters make money from sustainable sandalwood is a positive way to support the community."

Sandalwood oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and the rich woody aroma invokes a sense of calm and deep relaxation. It's also a fixative and help keep perfume and allow the scent to develop more naturally on the skin.



SUPERDAD bath bomb 

Sometimes the best superheroes don't wear capes or costumes. This guaiac wood, sandalwood and olibanum bomb is for one of them. Simply drop it into the bath and relax.

RRP $6.95 each



THANKS DAD soap

For washes that are alpha-better than the rest, cleanse with this fresh orange juice and cheery Brazilian orange oil soap.

RRP $6.95 each



SMUGGLER'S SOUL face and body scrub

Th intriguing smoky notes of sandalwood in this fine scrub are provided by ethical, sustainable sources. Alongside it's rich scent, bamboo granules exfoliate and brighten skin while fresh cucumber infusion cools.

RRP $22.95 for 100g



SMUGGLER'S SOUL shampoo bar

Chunks of fair trade organic cocoa butter are scattered through this hydrating bar with cleansing lemongrass oil. It's poignant, smoky sandalwood scent recount the journey to find the ethical sources which supply this bar. Create a lather in the hands first or glide straight over hair to clean and add a curiously reassuring, woody fragrance.

RRP $14.95 each



THE MODFATHER bubble bar

Forget third class tickets. Head away from the numbers and crumble this bar under running water for Brazilian orange oil refreshment.

RRP $7.50 each



SMUGGLER'S SOUL multi-purpose cream

Fresh cucumber cools the body, hands and face while organ oil softens the skin. And the sandalwood? Our source is sustainable and ethical, but shining a light on the murky, sandalwood smuggling underworld must continue.

  1. I like how they give back to the local communities and allow them to benefit from the sales too! I don't think my Dad will know what to do with a Lush bar though haha :)

  2. Love Lush products, and it sounds like they have a good initiative for this collab collection in AU. The Modfather sounds like it would be a great one.
