The Lush Prize is a collaboration between Ethical Consumer and Lush Cosmetics; a £250,000 annual fund to reward groups or individuals working in the field of cruelty-free scientific research, awareness raising and lobbying.
The Prize combines the research and campaigning skills of Ethical Consumer and the passion and resources of Lush staff and is the biggest prize in the non-animal testing sector. The Prize will continue until all animal testing has been replaced.
Lush Prize 2015
The Lush Prize Awards and Conference took place on Friday 20 November in London. In addition to £200,000 being shared by the winners of the lobbying, training, public awareness, science and young researchers awards, this year the judges launched the Black Box awards.
It is called the ‘Black Box Prize’ because traditional product safety testing, relying on animal tests, explains little about whether and how chemicals cause adverse health effects in humans: it treats the issue as a ‘black box’. Lush wants to help open the box and improve the science of safety testing.
