While a grand opening date is yet to be announced, the company did concur with a Twitter announcement on 9 July  that said Lush is accepting resumes for salespeople in Kuala Lumpur. Its exact location in the capital is also yet to be determined.

Founded in 1995 in Pool, England, Lush sells its handmade products today in nearly 50 countries from over 900 shops, via franchises and joint ventures.

Its Asia-Pacific locations include Singapore, Japan, and South Korea, and further south in Australia.

The cosmetics company prides itself on selling environmental-friendly, 100% vegetarian, and cruelty-free products, and strives to be completely package-free as much as possible. Where not, it uses recycled packaging.

Most recently, Lush opened a new plastic-free store in Milan, Italy, and launched a global campaign to raise awareness of the problem of plastic in the world’s oceans.  In May, Lush said it would exit Brazil, closing stores and its factory in the South American nation.
