Astringent and antibacterial
Lemon contains citric acid which is an excellent astringent and exfoliant. It removes excess oil, cleanses and brightens the skin, scalp and hair.
Lemons are the fruit of the citrus limonum tree, which can be found growing in Italy, Asia and East India. This thorny, evergreen tree has shiny, oval leaves. It produces fragrant white and pink-tinged flowers, which later become the lemon fruit.
The lemons arrive fresh at Lush manufacturing, where they are sliced and dried in-house — as an added bonus, the juicy citrus fragrance is revitalising and refreshing.
