Lush Ltd. is a cosmetics retailer headquartered in Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom. The company was founded by Mark Constantine, a trichologist and Liz Weir, a beauty therapist. They met in a hair and beauty salon in Poole, England. A few years later, they decided to branch out and start their own business selling natural hair and beauty products.
In the early 80s, Lush Cosmetics started as products sold at the Body Shop, but due to their high quality and demand they soon opened their first UK shop in 1995 and they are now available in 51 countries worldwide.
