Lush cosmetics (or any other similar company!)

Does anyone know if I can get Lush toiletries/cosmetics or if there is another store in Australia that specialises in anti animal cruelty cosmetics?

 

 

Also, as it's made from natural products will I be allowed to take my lush toiletries into Australia? Will it get through customs? I don't think I can get through the stopover without my shampoo :rolleyes:

Thanks Dan :)

 

Are you also an animal rights person? I was worried in case Australia didn't have anything like that :)

I am yes, I met a woman when I was in NZ who emigrated 30 years ago to Brisbane from Kent and she was a vegan and said that some parts of Ausrtalia, particularly Queensland are known for having plenty of vegetarians/vegans/animal rights people... not sure about WA but I'm sure they will.

 

I heard that Brits are meant to be among the most passionate for animals in the world (shows what kind of world we live in lol - find it hard to believe sometimes!) and think of all the Brits in Southern Queensland, Perth and Mandurah, I'm sure they'll have animal rights people...!

LOL It's one of those things unfortunately, Australia is known also to be a nation of meat eaters!

Hi!

Although I don't think that there's the biggest range of veggie products (just the usual burgers, snags,schnitzels etc) to eat here, it's all good.

 

As to Lush, there's one in Adelaide now, plus a fair few products made in Australia or New Zealand, that aren't tested on animals - and many which contain no animal products either!

 

I only use non-animal tested products whether toileteries or just house-cleaning stuff, and have had no problems finding decent products that do exactly what I need them to, so don't worry!:yes:

 

By the way, how do you feel about The Body Shop? I haven't used them for many years now, not since they were bought out by a company that does test on animals (L'Oreal?). I know they claim that they still do not test, but are they guilty by association? Or does that sound a bit OTT?! I still can't decide...

Hi Lazycow (love the name lol!)

 

Thanks for that :) the rest of my family are complete meat eaters and aren't bothered about animal testing, so there's no chance of our cleaning products being non-animal testing :(

 

To be honest since the bodyshop was bought out, I'd moved onto Lush anyway so don't know about the quality of their products, I didn't know about them being taken over by a company that tests! This would definatly put me off! Although I love how 99% of all lush products are vegan. I don't think it's OTT at all I try my best to keep clear of products like l'oreal, Clairol, Max Factor even if they release a product that they claim isn't tested on animals, as there's no guarentee that the raw materials have never been tested! It's like tressemme shampoo, their owner alberto-culver have an anti animal testing policy (although they're not on the safe list). It's all mad!

We're 50/50 meat/veggie in our house! The two that aren't (male :rolleyes:of course) don't really understand the idea of not eating meat, although they kinda pretend they do in that "some of my best meals are vegetarian" way!

 

As for the non-tested stuff, if we all do as much as we can, that's enough for me. At the moment here they are advertising the cruelty behind milk, cream etc and how the life of the cow is reduced signifiacantly from (I think!) 15 to 3 years. So that's making me feel bad now, although you would think they would be better trying to change the meat-eating culture over here rather than the milk-drinking one. Oh well!

 

As for my name...it's not just my name, it's my way of life. My 'thing' is to never do today what can be put off till tomorrow. Slack hey!

Hi there,

 

I'm veggie and buy everything I can which is non animal tested. When I first got here I struggled with where to buy and what to buy, but once you get used to it it becomes easier. There are some household products here which are non tested and are much cheaper than the tested ones which is good when making the choice.

The whole veggie thing here is a bit of a nightmare, but you do meet the same kind of uneducated idiots in the UK too. They try to belittle you because you actually care, but try to ignore them as you would in the uk. There are some places where you can get veggie/vegan meals and some restaurants are completely veggie/vegan, so its knowing where to go really. Its all a learning curve and becomes easier the more you explore the shops restaurants etc.

There is a really good book which I bought online from the cruelty free shop, called 'But you kill ants' by John Waddell. He used to be a vegetarian and then made the decision to go vegan and he tells you all of peoples sarcstic comments and ways to argue your point back at them. I read it all in one evening and since have really been trying to make the move to veganism, but not quite got there yet. Hope fully will one day soon. Its worth a read and all profits from the book sales go to vegetarian, vegan and animal welfare charities. It is good ammunition for all of the snide, sarcastic comments you get from those meat heads who like to ridicule your beliefs.

just seen these replies! Will definatly look for that book, I really hate the comments (mostly from my carnivorous brothers!) about the poor little mushrooms having to die etc!!!

 

I would love to try veganism, but there's no way my mum would let me!
