Our Brand Operating Values

  • A summary of our beliefs

    At Liz Earle, we take our responsibility towards people and the planet seriously. Since 1995 (long before many companies began to adopt more sustainable practices’) we’ve built our brand on socially responsible practices – from sustainably sourcing ingredients worldwide, to supporting local charities right here on the Isle of Wight.

    We’re proud to be a brand based on firm principles that have shaped the way we do business for over 20 years. From our environmentally friendly Head Office, The Green House, to our cruelty free status and responsibly sourced ingredients, we’re committed to positive change in the beauty industry. We’re also making strides towards more sustainable packaging.

    Liz Earle has a longstanding heritage of supporting local community causes. We make regular donations of toys to Aspire, a Ryde-based community space that works with the isolated and the lonely. We also planted an edible garden at the Isle of Wight foodbank so that their customers have access to locally grown, fresh produce, and donate our products to St. George’s School for children with special needs so that they can be sold through their on-site hair and beauty salon. We’re constantly looking for charities to support on our beloved Isle of Wight, striving to give back to the community that we’re so fortunate to be a part of.

  • Suitable for vegetarians

    All of our products are suitable for vegetarians. We do however use animal by-products such as beeswax, propolis and Manuka honey in some of our products, however we never use animal-derived ingredients such as carmine, shellac or collagen.

  • Naturally active

    We champion Naturally Active ingredients, so when we formulate a new product we expect that, wherever possible, the primary function or performance is achieved from ingredients that have been classified as naturally derived, either from plant, marine or mineral sources.

    We work hard to maintain, manage and constantly improve our supply chain. This means that at any stage along the product journey, we can be confident that not only the quality of ingredients meets our exacting standards, but we can also closely monitor our environmental and social impact.

    All ingredients used in Liz Earle products are clearly displayed on our packaging and meet the requirements of our parent company’s (Walgreens Boots Alliance) global Restricted Substances List. Boots and Walgreens always have the safety of their customers and the environment at the heart of everything that they do. Both companies have grown from a strong pharmaceutical heritage and have long established expertise in retailing, while Boots also adds manufacturing expertise. Our HQ’s chemicals experts use these unrivalled multi-sector credentials to clearly identify and understand the safety impact some chemicals may have and keep very close control of those that are used in all of our products.

  • Ethical sourcing and supplier sustainability

    All factories used to make Liz Earle products are known to us and are audited before being used for the first time against our global ethical trading standards (internationally recognised labour conventions and environmental protection standards) – and thereafter audited every one to two years.

    We are also a Sustainability Partner for non-profit industry association Global Shea Alliance, which promotes industry sustainability, quality practices and standards for shea butter used in food and cosmetics. 

  • Cruelty Free (Sustainable Raw Materials)

    We’re against animal testing, we NEVER do it. We’ve been approved under The Leaping Bunny programme since its launch – a globally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free beauty products that goes above and beyond legal requirements. It is the only cruelty free license that requires a supplier monitoring system to be implemented by the brand. The supply chain is checked for animal testing right down to ingredient manufacture level, so our customers are safe in the knowledge that the legitimacy of any cruelty free claim is genuine.

  • Responsibly sourced ingredients

    High performance, quality and safe ingredients are our priority. We know where our ingredients come from and we’re committed to building relationships with our growers and farmers – not only to ensure the quality of our precious ingredients, but also to monitor our impact on the environment, the community and fair working conditions. Our preferred suppliers are those that can deliver consistency, with known origin and proven efficacy. 

  • Making strides in packaging

    We’re committed to providing the best packaging possible, designed to protect the product and deliver the best performance. We carefully consider all our packaging to ensure that it is best for our products while minimising its impact upon the environment. We’re also making strides towards more sustainable packaging, with reusability and recyclability in mind. 

  • Treading lightly

    Waste reduction is of utmost importance to us and wherever possible, we try to reduce our environmental impact and the amount of waste that we produce along every single stage of the product journey. The Green House, our visionary Head Office building in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, includes many environmentally friendly innovations. These include geo-thermal heating, which uses the natural heat from the ground to keep us warm (and cool) and a facility to harvest rain water, which is then filtered into our bathrooms to flush our toilets. Movement and sensory timers ensure our lighting automatically turns off when there is no-one in the room, recycled paper is used across the building, and all our kitchen waste is composted on site.

Top FAQs

  • Are your products tested on animals?

    We never do it and have been certified under The Leaping Bunny Program, an internationally recognised cruelty-free certification, since its launch. We do use animal by-products such as beeswax, propolis and Manuka honey, however we never use animal-derived ingredients such as carmine, shellac or collagen. All of our products are suitable for vegetarians.
     

  • Do you send out samples?

    We don't supply samples, but our travel sizes are an excellent way to try many products within our range. Most of these travel sizes contain enough product to last you approximately 7-10 days. If you are thinking of buying a product and are concerned it may not be to your liking, please bear in mind that we are happy to offer a refund or exchange on any unsuitable products. Simply contact us within 14 days of receiving the product and we will be happy to arrange this for you. Products purchased in store can be returned back to the store, with proof of purchase, within 14 days, for a refund or exchange.

  • Are your products suitable for sensitive skin?

    While we do have a number of customers who have sensitive skin, unfortunately there are no guarantees that individual products within our range are going to suit everyone. We would therefore recommend you carry out a patch test prior to using any new skincare product for the first time. A small amount should be applied close to the area of intended use (behind the ear is ideal in this instance). Should you experience any redness, irritation or discomfort during the next 24 hours then you should immediately and thoroughly wash the test area and we would not recommend use of that particular product.

    The only products in our range we would advise caution in using on sensitive skin are our Brightening Treatment Mask, Gentle Face Exfoliator and Deep Cleansing Mask due to the stimulating nature of these products.

    Please be assured that if any product purchased directly from our website or Customer Centre proves to be unsuitable for use we do have a 14 day returns policy.

  • Can I buy gift vouchers for treatments?

    All of our treatments are perfect to give as a special gift. Simply visit one of our treatment rooms, buy online or call our Customer Centre on +44 (0)1983 813913 to order a Treatment Gift Voucher. If you have a Treatment Gift Voucher please ensure to bring it with you on the day of your treatment for payment. Please be aware that Liz Earle Treatment Gift Vouchers can only be redeemed at Liz Earle flagship stores.

  • Are your products suitable for vegans?

    No, our products are only suitable for vegetarians. We have in some formulations harnessed the naturally active properties of beeswax, propolis and Manuka honey, which are harvested as by-products of the honey industry. While we can confirm which products include these ingredients, without completing a full assessment of the entire supply chain we are unable to declare that any of our products are suitable for use by vegans.

    Products containing beeswax:

    • Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser – all scent variants
    • Gentle Face Exfoliator
    • Eucalyptus & Rosemary Botanical Candle
    • Rosemary & Rock Rose Body Cream
    • Superskin™ Face Serum (which contains a derivative of beeswax – Polyglyceryl-3 beeswax)

    Products containing propolis:

    • Deep Cleansing Mask


    Products containing Manuka honey:

    • Deep Cleansing Mask
  • I'm new to the range, which products should I start with?

    The key to radiantly healthy-looking skin is our simple 3-step cleanse, tone and moisturise routine – used every day, morning and evening.

    Step 1: Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser
    Our original beauty icon deeply cleanses to instantly remove daily grime, pollutants and make up to reveal smoother, clearer and brighter-looking skin.

    Step 2: Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic
    This heavenly-scented, alcohol free and non-drying floral toner provides an instant boost of hydration, while refreshing, soothing and toning.

    Step 3: Moisturiser
    Your choice of Skin Repair™ or Superskin™ Moisturiser, each expertly tailored to soften, smooth and condition different skin types.

  • How do I choose which moisturiser to use?

    Our moisturisers are available in 5 different formulations, simply use the one that best matches your skin type. Within our Skin Repair™ range, choose from Skin Repair™ Light Cream, Gel Cream or Rich Cream. We then have two luxurious Superskin™ Moisturisers – with natural neroli or unfragranced for sensitive skin.

    If you aren't sure of your skin type, a good way to judge is to ask yourself the following simple questions: Does your skin feel tight at any time during the day or show visible signs of dryness? If yes, choose Skin Repair™ Rich Cream. Does your skin tend to be shiny throughout the day? If yes, choose Skin Repair™ Gel Cream. If your skin is neither of these then opt for the Skin Repair™ Light Cream – this option is also a good choice if you have a moderately shiny T-zone across the forehead, nose and chin.

    Alternatively, you may like to try one of our Superskin™ Moisturisers. These have been specially formulated to help dry skin look and feel rejuvenated. They are rich in GLA, omega-3 and antioxidants for healthy, youthful-looking skin – and available either scented with natural neroli or fragranced for sensitive skin.

    You can also mix and match which moisturiser you use depending on your skin's needs. Some of our customers use a richer cream at night, or during the winter months, and a lighter formulation in the morning or during the summer.

Help with my account

  • How do I change my billing address?

    Changing your billing address is quick and easy online. Once you have logged in to your account, go to ‘My account’ and then ‘My address book’. From this page you can delete and add new addresses and set defaults for both billing and delivery.

    If you have multiple addresses in your address book, you can select which is used during the checkout process.

  • I am unable to enter the promo code you sent me.

    Many of our promo codes are unique and can only be used once against an order placed using the email address to which it was initially sent. Some of our codes are only valid on selected ranges and this will be indicated in your email. You will need to log in to your account before applying the code. It should be added to your shopping basket in the ‘Do you have a promo code?’ box before checkout and the discount or reward should be applied automatically.

    The promotional code field is case-sensitive, so the code would need to be entered exactly as it appears in the email. We would recommend typing the code in manually, rather than copying and pasting it directly from the email. Once entered, you need to click on ‘Apply’ to apply the discount or reward to your shopping basket.

  • How do I add another payment method?

    Adding an alternative payment card to your account gives you the flexibility to pay online using the most convenient card for you.

Simply select ‘Add new’ and complete the necessary details for your new payment card and this card will then be available when you checkout online. Alternatively, you are also able to add a new card during the checkout process.
