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.

Hi, I’ve been using cleanse & polish for years & I love it. However since opening my last tube I seem to have developed really itchy eyes, have any of the ingredients changed at all?

Asked by: Hev66
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. I am pleased to confirm that whilst the packaging has been updated, we have not updated the formulation of our Cleanse & Polish. Would you like to email us directly at naturallyactive@lizearle.com and let us know where your Cleanse & Polish was purchased, the size, and the batch code - which can be found on the base of a pump, or the crimp at the top of a tube, for example - U1234A. We look forward to hearing from you. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Can the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polished be used with eye lash extensions (I.e. does it contain oil that will dissolve the glue used to keep eye lash  extension on?)

Asked by: JuneyP
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Our Cleanse & Polish has not been tested for use with eye last extensions, and so we would recommend speaking to your beautician for further advice. We do hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
