Lush How It’s Made: Avocado Wash Shower Gel

Renee and Arnel are here to show you how we make our new Avocado Wash Shower Gel, a citrusy-sweet scent inspired by the bestselling Avocado Co-wash. Arnel starts with a base made from carrageenan powder and water, then adds our lathering agent with a little gardenia extract and cosmetic-grade dye to give it a boost of color and fragrance. Now it’s time to get fresh with loads of peeled and mashed avocados, along with organic avocado oil. We add this back into our starter mix, along with plenty of citrusy litsea cubeba oil and we blend it all together to the perfect consistency. Then it’s all ready to bottle, label and ship off to a store near you! Enjoy this bright green avocado cream this spring—toast not included. Grab some Avocado Wash: Love Lush?
