According to Kommersant, Lush had a special positioning, but its products are not exclusive, which means that consumers can find a replacement from local manufacturers.
Only the Russian store will be preserved, where customers can purchase goods remaining in warehouses.
Note that the British office stopped cooperating with the Russian partner back in March. All cosmetics, which was intended for Russia, slowed down in Riga. Parallel imports don't work with Lush, as the brand owner only wholesales with his partners.
It's worth reminding that in Russia Lush is being developed by Dmitry Azarov, who owns 65% of Lush Russia LLC.
Recall that another cosmetics company - Coty - stopped its business in Russia in April. Before that, it became known that the German manufacturer of household chemicals, cosmetics and building products Henkel was leaving the Russian market. Among its brands are Bref, Ceresit, Clin, Persil, Schwarzkopf cosmetics, Moment glue and many others.
