The beauty brand Lush is known for their freshly-mixed products using natural ingredients, but even we were surprised when they revealed just how many fruits and veggies go into making their skin and hair helpers each year. The juicy scoop:

  • 415 pounds of cantaloupe, with strand-nourishing enzymes
  • 550 pineapples, for their brightening alpha hydroxy acids
  • 11,000 bananas, to soften skin
  • 17,000 limes, which have complexion-toning effects
  • 20,000 avocados, for their moisturizing properties
  • 27,000 oranges, rich in vitamin C and a natural astringent
