Cosmetics Brand Lush will test 3D printed molds in a new facility

Lush, a brand of fresh handmade products will use 3D printed molds and products in a $17M UK facility.

As part of the “annual talk” at the Jobshop UK directors’ lunch, Mark Constantine, Lush co-founder announced Lush would be investing £13 million ( €14 405 558) in the town of Poole in Dorset for this new facility.

What we’re up to in there is putting in all our innovation and new things—so it gives us the facilities, it adds another one fifth to our space in Poole and gives us the facilities to work on new things,” said Constantine. “Someone can invent something and we can make it within six to 12 weeks.”

The use of 3D printing

The 50,000 square feet facility is also the opportunity for the brand to explore 3D printing in safety conditions. The technology will serve to the production of molds as well as some products.

Despite the Brexit, the co-founder shows a certain attachment to the British public:  “Fortunately for us, we’ve had a 25 per cent lift in our British business from last year. We’re enjoying considerable success and the British public are very, very kind to us, probably kinder than to anyone else on the high street at the moment, I would imagine.”
