Lush's Self Preserving products | Helen Ambrosen, Melody Greenwood, and Jet Shears

Lush has spent years developing self-preserving cosmetics. While synthetic preservatives are generally safe to use, it does mean thousands of tonnes of strong chemicals are washed down bathroom sinks into the environment every year. Charlie Moores talks to the team behind self-preserving, from development to safety testing: Lush co-founder and product developer Helen Ambrosen, highly regarded microbiologist Melody Greenwood, and Jet Shears, who looks after all of Lush’s in-house testing.
