Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare.

From the UK comes a very popular skincare line from Liz Earle. The line centers around high quality, safe, naturally active ingredients.

From cleansers to heavy duty moisturizers, self-tanners and more, the line has a full range of products using some of the world's best botanicals. A great way to get started with the line is with one of their Try-Me Kits. I like the Essentials Kit

Kit includes: Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 1 fl.oz, Instant Boost Skin Tonic 1.6 fl.oz, Skin Repair Moisturiser dry 0.5 fl.oz, Skin Repair Moisturiser normal 0.5 fl.oz, plus 1 pure muslin cloth, all in a handy zipperd cosmetic bag. This Try-Me Essentials Kit sells for $39.50, and like I said, is a great wy to discover the line.

I like the principals of the company, which include:

Vitamin E
We only use potent, premium natural-source vitamin E, never the synthetic variety.
No animal testing
We test products on human volunteers, not on animals. The Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare range has been approved by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection.
No animal ingredients
None of our ingredients are of animal origin (except beeswax, propolis and manuka honey).
All products are suitable for vegetarians.
No Chemical Sunscreens
We prefer to use mineral sun filters to provide the best broad-spectrum UV protection and to reduce the risk of skin allergy.
No mineral oils
We use natural, high quality plant oils rather than mineral oils. None of our products contain mineral oil, paraffin wax, petrolatum, or any fractions of crude oil or primary petro-chemicals.
No genetically engineered ingredients
None of our products contain genetically engineered or modified organisms.
Organic ingredients
Whenever possible we source organically grown ingredients or those harvested sustainably in the wild.
Preservatives
Some of our formulations are preservative free. However, we do use preservatives when absolutely essential for product safety. Where natural preservatives are not available, we use relatively low concentrations of the highest grade, broad-spectrum preservatives.
