Proceeds from the eucalyptus oils and lemongrass scented soap will help the wildlife injured in the devastating bush fires.

The soap, called All The Wild Things, will be on sale from tomorrow (Friday) in the Lush store at intu Milton Keynes and also online. It costs £5.

It is a limited edition koala shaped version of Lush’s best-selling Outback Mate soap.

Lush director Peta Granger said: “Across our business there has been a call from customers and staff for some way to help. We can only imagine the horror faced out in the bush by those who are going out searching for animal survivors amongst the estimated billion creatures killed so far in the fires

She added: "The world is watching in awe at the indescribable job being done by Australia’s impressive emergency services, without whom there would be many more human and animal victims of the devastating bush fires that have ravaged our country since September 2019. We recognise that the road to recovering will be long and difficult."

The Bush Animal Fund is a global initiative from which Lush aims to raise much needed funds for grassroots organisations who desperately need community support.
