Lush Dragon’s Egg bath bomb is going gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness month
Lush's cult favourite Dragon's Egg bath bomb is going gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness month launching online from 23rd September and in all Lush UK&I stores from 24th September 2022.
This September, it's with heavy hearts that Lush UK&I is going gold for childhood cancer awareness month. This year the Constantine family (the co-founders of Lush) lost seven-year-old Dexter Constantine-Tatchell, their Master of Dragons. He fought fiercely against Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare childhood cancer that lacks awareness as well as a lack of funding for research and treatment.
"Jack and I are heartbroken at the loss of our sweet Dexter. He will forever be in our thoughts and we will forever miss him. We are so grateful to Lush and all the staff that have organised 'Dexters Dragon's egg' to raise awareness for childhood cancer awareness month. We have felt immense support from Lush & Alice's Arc in providing our family the platform to tell Dexter's story and raise awareness about Rhabdomyosarcoma since his passing." – Rachel Constantine
To honour Dexter and children like him, Lush is supporting the launch of Dexter's Arc, a fundraising platform created with the support of registered charity Alice's Arc.
Funds raised through Dexter's Arc will go towards non-animal testing research into Rhabdomyosarcoma.A limited edition adaption of the best-selling Dragon's Egg bath bomb, 'Dexter's Dragon Egg' will be sold online from 23rd September and in all Lush UK&I stores from 24th September 2022 and 100% of sales (minus VAT) will be going to Dexter's Arc, with the hope that £150k will be raised specifically for the purpose of non-animal tested research into Rhabdomyosarcoma.
