What are the benefits of talc in Lush products?

The powder helps create various textures, such as our Fun’s malleable paste. It is also used as a shade-adjusting component in a few of our plastic-free glitters. And, by absorbing liquids, it creates an inhospitable environment for micro-organisms which helps products last longer, lowering the need for other preservatives.


With safety our top priority, we only use high-purity pharmaceutical-grade talc which has undergone rigorous quality testing. This ensures the absence of mineral fibres such as asbestos or unsafe levels of heavy metal contamination.
