Lush All The Wild Things soap

Proceeds from All The Wild Things soap sales will be donated directly to the Bush Animal Fund.

With over a billion animals killed in the devastation of the recent Australian bushfires, cosmetics company Lush is looking to help stop the number from rising even more.

The retailer is currently selling a special line of koala-shaped, "All The Wild Things" soap bars, which are a take on Lush's popular Outback Mate soap.

100% of the proceeds from each bar sold will be donated to the Bush Animal Fund, which is an organisation created by Lush Australia. According to a statement on the Lush site, the money will go to "animal rescue groups providing emergency first aid and rehabilitation as well as restoring the habitat where the wild things were."

The limited-edition soap bars feature a mix of eucalyptus, lemongrass and peppermint oils and retail for just $10 each. They're also vegan and cruelty-free, giving you even more incentive to stock up.

50,000 soaps are set to be sold across Lush stores all over the world, raising a whopping half a million dollars for the cause.

Popular beauty brand Frank Body is also donating 100% of global sales from its A-Beauty Scrub for the month of January, helping you to scrub up for a good cause. The proceeds will go to WIRES Wildlife Rescue, CFA (Country Fire Authority) and the NSW Rural Fire Service.
