Finder Green Fave: Lush Orangutan Bath Bomb

Posted: 2 June 2022 1:57 pm

Immerse yourself in scents and sounds from Sumatra with this limited-edition bath bomb that supports conservation in the region.

The Lush Orangutan Bath Bomb is shaped like its namesake and is scented with Sumatran dark patchouli oil, vanilla and kukui oil waters. It also has a note inside it, with a QR code that you can scan to hear sounds of the Sumatran rainforest.

It's available from 2 June 2022 and all profits from it will support conservation action in the West Toba rainforest.

What makes the Lush Orangutan Bath Bomb green?

Profits from the Lush Orangutan Bath Bomb will help the Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS) with long-term initiatives that it has created with the local communities and their frontline partners.

In particular, it will support regeneration and conservation in Sumatra's West Toba rainforest – a critical area for endangered species including Sumatran orangutans, Sumatran tigers, gibbons, hornbills and sun bears.

"West Toba is one of the most important areas of rainforest on the planet and, thanks to this partnership, we can empower forest-edge communities to protect it for the future, so people, orangutans and the planet can thrive," SOS director Helen Buckland said in a statement.

"The campaign will help ensure that orangutans can thrive in the wild, whilst connecting Lush's customers all over the world with the orangutans' incredible forest home."

The actual bath bomb is 100% cruelty-free and vegan. It is made from a mix of natural ingredients and "safe synthetics", such as sodium bicarbonate. The Lush website actually has an Ingredients Hub where you can read about them, including any controversies.

The Lush Orangutan Bath Bomb is also a "naked" product. This means it's free of packaging (or wrapped in a bit of paper). And the QR code note that's inside the bath bomb is biodegradable and made of recycled material.

Where can I get it?

The Lush Orangutan Bath Bombs are $9.95 each. You can buy them in Lush stores or through the Lush website while supplies last.
