This week, Lush is introducing Charity Pot ($19.95), a hand and body lotion. I'm going to buy it not just because it's new, but because every penny of proceeds is going to a selection of worthy causes including Clean Ocean Action, International Fund for Animal Welfare, and UNICEF's United for Children, Unite for AIDS program. What's more, it's made with fairly traded cocoa butter from the Ivory Coast and the Dominican Republic. And like all of Lush's products, there's no animal testing involved.
Along with the cocoa butter, Charity Pot contains natural ingredients such as gardenia extract and oils of geranium, ylang ylang, and almond oil. I'm definitely planning to check this out, but I might wait a week or two because there's another new product coming soon. To find out what it is,
Boo! Scaaaaaaary! Just in time for Halloween comes Ghost, a shimmering white, lily-scented shower gel. It's a limited-edition product, though, so when it comes out later this month, hop on it—before it makes like Casper and disappears.
