The Lush shop is opening its doors to during Cardiff Science Festival to show everyone the science of cosmetics! From the science of bath bombs to learning about the impact of plastic on our oceans, Lush is hosting a full day of science events that will show you another example of science in your every day life. There’s no need to book for any of the events below, just drop in during the festival
The Future is packaging-free:
Did you know over 50% of sea turtles have ingested plastic bags, mistaking them for jellyfish? As consumers, we can demand change by choosing to consume differently. If you opt out of excessive plastic packaging, you’re creating a future with less packaging and waste. If you have a favourite product from Lush, chances are we have got a solid alternative that is just as effective.
Drop in after 11am on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th to make your very own Turtle Jelly Bomb where you will also explore how we as consumers can reduce our plastic consumption. The cost of this workshop is £4.95.
The History of the Bath Bomb:
Bath bombs have become a form of artistic expression, a solid bicarbonate structure which explodes into a visual show in your bathtub. Observe the unique chemical reaction happen as the bombs hit the water and find out how! Aside from treating the skin to an abundance of rich butters and oils, bath bombs create a unique ambiance in your bathroom through fragrance and colour, drawing on inspiration from aromatherapy and taking your senses on a journey.
Are you ready to embark on a bath time adventure? Join us in store anytime on every day of the festival to experience the evolution of the bath bomb and find out the science behind how they work.
The science of smell and the benefits of essential oils:
Smell, more than any other sense, is connected to our memories and emotions. Explore our new fragrance range in an exciting new way and find out which powerful memories or emotions these scents may evoke. If fragrance isn’t your thing don’t worry! From our bath bombs to lotions, the essential oils have been carefully chosen to suit your mood and transport you to another realm!
Join us in store anytime on every day of the festival to find out all about the essential oils that we use in our products and the effects that they have on the skin and mind.
