Mark Constantine

Lush founder Mark Constantine is remarkably upbeat about the downturn: “Everyone uses it as an excuse for falling sales or dropping profits,” he says. “Any problems we have at Lush are magnified by the recession – but they haven’t been caused by it. The business is actually easier to manage: people are more realistic, they work harder and they’re better behaved!” Cosmetics entrepreneur Mark Constantine talks to Kate Pritchard about his new Lush spas, “digging for potatoes” and why Woolworths went under.
