The Lush Prize


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.


Ethical Consumer administers all aspects of the prize in collaboration with Lush Cosmetics 

This includes:

  • Facilitating the judging process
  • Marketing and press work
  • Organising the awards ceremony
  • Providing briefing papers on the latest developments in the fields of toxicology, and animal rights campaigning.
