Fresh Pineapple

Ananas sativus



The ultimate symbol of enzymic (or enzymatic) exfoliation, fresh pineapples cleanse and refresh the skin while giving hair the shine it deserves.

Where do we get pineapples?

Nearly all of our fresh fruit and vegetables are purchased from the same specialist distributor, whom Lush UK has been working with since 2005. Depending on the time of year, they source products from different countries to try and have availability all year round. They work hard to supply as many organic products as possible and provide the highest quality available the rest of the time.

With seven manufacturing sites across the globe, this information may vary depending on where your Lush products were made.

What are the benefits of fresh pineapple?

  • Pineapple enzymes, called bromelain, help to refresh the skin and scalp by literally eating the dead skin cells lingering on the skin’s surface. It is so powerful that it can help to treat calluses and minimise scars.
  • The fruit’s acids (citric, malic and tartaric) complete bromelain’s natural exfoliation and make the hair shine.
  • Lesser known, the anti-inflammatory properties of bromelain can reduce swelling and bruising.

How do pineapple grow?

Native to Brazil and Paraguay, the pineapple thrives in tropical climates and has been used in both folk and modern medicine. We are all more or less familiar with the fruit, but a little less familiar with the plant on which they grow. Each plant looks like a throne of long green leaves on which presides a unique and proud fruit. When looking closely, the plant actually looks like a bigger version of the spiky tuft that crowns the fruit and this is quite normal... because it is! To grow a pineapple, you just have to plant the tuft and wait for it to grow and blossom.
