Cleanse & Polish The Results

Cocoa flower

(Theobroma cacao)

Famous for its excellent emollient properties, we source our cocoa butter from West Africa, where fermented beans of the cocoa tree are roasted, cracked and ground to give a powdery solid called cocoa mass, from which cocoa butter is pressed.


(Rosmarinus officinalis)

Used for its antioxidant properties, we source our rosemary from Spain, where the extract is filtered from the needle-shaped leaves of the plant.


(Anthemis nobilis)

Legendary for its skin-soothing properties, the flowers of this aromatic perennial are harvested in England in the summer, before the ingredient is solvent extracted from the fragrant flower.


(Eucalyptus globulus)

Renowned for its purifying properties and invigorating aroma, we source our eucalyptus from China, where our essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the fast-growing eucalyptus tree.

Is rose and lavender cleanse & polish availed in  pump, also do you still sell 200mi pump?

Asked by: Frannie
Hello Frannie, Our Rose & Lavender Cleanse & Polish 'Relaxing Edition' is now packaged in our new eco-conscious recyclable tube, made with 55% recycled materials. The pump is no longer available. Our classic 200ml Cleanse & Polish is available in a tube but not in a pump. We are on a journey to improve the sustainability of our packaging and pump packs present more of a technical challenge for finding an easily recyclable solution that can also work with our formula safely. We hope this helps.
