Lush Cosmetics Business Operations
Transcript of Lush Cosmetics Business Operations
LUSH targets its market with values. These values come from the LUSH founders: quality organic and natural products, environmental sustainability and social responsibility. Products without packaging, as well as preservative-free ingredients, appeal to those who live an organic and eco-friendly lifestyle. A major tenant of the LUSH is not to test its products on animals, these vegan and vegetarian products attract consumers fighting for animal rights.
