Lush to use 3D printer to mould ‘next layer’ soap

Lush is experimenting with 3D printing techniques in a bid to create ‘next layer’ soaps, solid perfumes and bath melts, according to a report published by 3D Printing Industry.

The ethical cosmetics brand will further explore the technology at its new £13 million research facility in Poole, Dorset. The brand has been releasing ‘teasers’ of its latest project throughout the year, including at its Creative Showcase earlier this fall and via its Instagram account.

3D printers can be used to make moulds, as well as intricate bath melts, while lasers will be used to etch the surface of bar soaps, opening up the possibility of bespoke products.
