Did we ever tell you we love LUSH? Well it's true! Not only do they make amazing natural body products that smell good enough to eat (not that we recommend you do), but they also take pride in the fact that none of their products are tested on animals.
"So what?" you might think. "Isn't animal testing old news?" Sadly, no. Big name brands like Procter & Gamble, Colgate/Palmolive and L'Oreal still burn, poison and kill thousands of animals each year to test products that will wind up on supermarket shelves in Australia.
For the eye irritancy test (or 'Draize' Test), for example, rabbits have their head locked into a vice and chemicals are dripped into their large sensitive eyes. They suffer in agony for days while scientists watch on to see how much damage the chemicals will do. Is a new fragrance shampoo really worth that?
Fortunately, there are many modern alternatives to animal tests. And many companies are wising up to the fact that animal tests are outdated and unnecessary.
LUSH is one of these caring companies. And to share the cruelty free goodness, our friends at LUSH have offered Happy Gift packs for 15 lucky people to win! These deLUSHious gift packs are full of handmade cruelty-free goodies, made from essential oils and natural ingredients. So they're not only good for you, they're also good for the environment and for animals!

Millions of animals including rodents, rabbits, cats, dogs and other animals are forced to endure painful tests every year to test products that end up on our supermarket shelves.
Dogs are also used in product tests. Beagles are a common choice by researchers due to their typically gentle and friendly nature.
Rabbits have chemicals dripped into their eyes and are locked into devices that stop them from attempting to rub their eyes clean. They are left to languish for days on end as the chemicals slowly burn their sensitive eye tissue.
You can help rabbits and other animals by purchasing cruelty-free products from companies such as LUSH, who do not test on animals!
