Cleanse & Polish The Results

Cocoa flower

COCOA BUTTER
(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.

Rosemary

ROSEMARY EXTRACT
(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.

Chamomile

CHAMOMILE EXTRACT
(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

EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL
(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.

Aqua (water), Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, Cetearyl alcohol, Cetyl esters, Cera alba (beeswax), Glycerin, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan stearate, Eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, Humulus lupulus (hops) extract, Chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, Propylene glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid, Sorbitol, Limonene, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyaminopropyl biguanide, Citric acid, Sodium hydroxide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daily care I have sensitive skin that despite my age (61) is prone to breakouts. I have tried many cleaners in the past, and now am firmly loyal to the Liz Earle Hot cloth Cleanser. Its part of my daily routine, and if I ever use something else, I notice that my skin starts to look congested and dull in a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleanser I have been using this cleanser for years, twice a day, and wouldn’t be without it. It is soft and gentle on the skin as well as being effective on removing make up including eye make up. My skin feels really fresh and clean after using with the muslin cloth. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever I always buy wash and polish. I’ve never used soap on my face but as I’ve got older I used this product and it’s so kind to my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have used Cleanse & Polish since it came onto the market 20 odd years ago. It has served me well. As a very senior citizen my skin is in great condition. Have my daughter in law and 2 Grand daughters now using it as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product I bought this after having been gifted the sample set. I love the smell and my skin feels smooth. Got one for my daughter who is troubled with breakouts on her face. Will see how it goes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cleanser for me I have used Cleanse & Polish for over twenty years and wouldn’t change my routine. I use it twice daily and it is wonderfully creamy and gentle on my sensitive skin. It removes all my makeup including mascara and leaves my skin feeling clean, fresh and healthy.

Thank you for your question. We can confirm that we do not use either sodium lauryl sulphate or sodium laureth sulphate in any of the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare range, including our Cleanse & Polish. Hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team.

can i still purchase 100ml pump cleanse and polish ?

Asked by: Helen B
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. 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 have been continuing to look into this issue with our suppliers, however, we hope our customers will enjoy getting all the same Cleanse & Polish benefits from purchasing our eco-conscious tubes, which are not only recyclable, but also made using 55% post-consumer recycled materials. Rather than remove the Cleanse & Polish pump from our range just yet, we are giving our customers all the tools they need to make an informed decision about whether to buy the pump or the tube. As to avoid any unnecessary waste, you may see both our previous (Cleanse & Polish pumps) and new packaging (Cleanse & Polish tubes) on shelf together at this time. Thank you for being understanding whilst our packaging transitions. You may find how packaging is the top of our agenda an interesting read: https://www.lizearle.com/content/our-packaging.html .We hope this information helps. - Liz Earle Beauty Co.
