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.

Does the actual packaging changed?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We can confirm that we have updated our Cleanse & Polish packaging and the new packaging of Cleanse & Polish is 55% r-HDPE (recycled High Density polyethylene) & 45% ULDPE (ultra low density polyethylene).   So it is a mix of polyethylene which will be widely recyclable via kerbside here in the UK. We do hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Are your products gluten free?

Asked by: Revlaurajane
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! Our suppliers have confirmed to us that the wheatgerm oil we use is gluten-free. The oil is cold pressed and deacidified; these processes mean that gluten is left behind and will not be present in the oil. Also, the Natural Source Vitamin E (Tocopherol) we use in our products is derived from soyabean oil and as such is also gluten-free. Nevertheless, as a common sense precaution we would always recommend a 24 hour patch test is conducted prior to the first use of any new skincare product. It might help you to know, that a full ingredients list for each of our products can be found on our website. I hope this information helps however, if you do require any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913 or email naturallyactive@lizearle.com – The Liz Earle Beauty Co.
