What Can I buy from Liz Earle? Vegan/Cruelty Free

We are all aware of what is and is not Vegan now a days, Meat, Gluten, Dairy. However what about your skin care?? This isn’t always as clear and often is not clearly labelled on packaging. Unless your really good with ingredients lists, you, like me, are buggered!

One of my favourite brands for skincare is Liz Earle and I have done many reviews regarding their amazing skin care range. As they are a well advertised natural skin brand I always assumed like others they are cruelty free and vegan. After lots of research and contacting Liz Earle directly I have the answers 🙂

Liz Earle is a 100% Cruelty Free brand. However not all their items are Vegan. They have informed me that some of their products contain beeswax, manuka honey and Propolis (these are the only animal derived ingredients in the naturally active range).

On their website it states;

“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”

If you are therefore strict vegan then perhaps Liz Earle is not for you. However I have listed below the items that contain the above so you can make an informed decision.

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 must admit I will surely miss my cleanse and polish!

I hope this helps!!

Much Love
