Lush To Launch Limited Edition Vegan Palm Oil-Free Soap To Save The Orangutans
Plant Based News revealed To help raise the funds, Lush has created 14,600 Orangutan soaps, which have a patchouli and orange fragrance and are made from an extra virgin coconut oil soap base from Nias (an island off mainland Sumatrato) – sell in its European stores and online. They will also be available online in North America.
“Every penny of each Orangutan soap sold for £8.25 (minus VAT) will go towards this cause and help claim back land for wild orangutans,” Lush said in a statement sent to Plant Based News. “With only 14,600 being made, this orange and patchouli oil soap, with Sumatran extra virgin coconut oil, is as precious as the primate it is helping protect.
“Make sure to get yours while you can, because once they’re gone they’re gone … much like the orangutans of the Sumatran forest.”
