Elizabeth Grant was born in London, England. She has lived in England, Scotland, South Africa, Monte Carlo and Canada.
Elizabeth established her company, Elizabeth Grant Int. Inc in 1958 in London, England at a time when it was most unusual for women to be in business. Through sheer determination and exceptional perseverance she was responsible for the development of the company from a home based business to a multi-million dollar global corporation.
Elizabeth did not always have the flawless skin she has today. Her skin was damaged during the Second World War. She used to walk around with dark glasses and tried to avoid people because of how self conscious she felt about her appearance. All that changed in 1948 when Elizabeth read about a substance that was being used to treat war wounds. After having this made up for her, Elizabeth noticed that within 8 months her skin started to show signs of a remarkable improvement. The glasses came off and she started living again!
At the time Elizabeth was working as a make up artist. When she noticed one of her favourite clients was suffering from bad skin as a result of years of heavy makeup use, Elizabeth offered a sample of the formula she was using. Within 10 days the client asked for more. When Elizabeth saw her 6 weeks later, she knew that this formula could help others. She decided to develop her own skin care treatment line that contained a secret formula she called Torricelumn.
All Elizabeth Grant products contain Torricelumn - a compound exclusive to the laboratories of Elizabeth Grant. Torricelumn is exceptionally rich in moisture that acts as a hydration booster - replenishing the moisture levels of the skin by attracting and retaining its own natural moisture. On application Torricelumn instantly hydrates the skin leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth, revitalized and rejuvenated. It helps to 'plump' up the appearance of the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Employing a "skin replication" technology, Torricelumn imitates the skin's natural repair capacity found in younger skins. It induces the skin to produce more collagen and elastic that are the skin's natural renewers. Its rich in protein a vital ingredient in cell renewal. Continuous use of Torricelumn and its specialized blends can positively impact on the skin overall and prevent further damage. Torricelumn is suitable for all skin types and all ages. The Elizabeth Grant Skin Care Treatment Line is hypo-allergenic and well tolerated by all skin types including sensitive skins and combination skins.
Biogenetically engineered to help redefine the appearance of the skin by working at the cellular level. The Skin consists of a dense interwoven structure of collagen and elastin fibres. These fibres provide the support of structure of the skin giving the skin its firming foundation and elasticity. As the skin ages there is a reduction in the production of collagen and elastin resulting in a decrease in the skin firmness and an increase in the appearance of wrinkles. Working from a cellular level Biocollasis helps to strengthen the collagen fibres and increase elasticity to the elastin fibres making the skin appear firmer, smoother and less lined. Biocollasis helps to renew and revive skin cells. The infusion of the tri-peptides and proteins in to the skin cells results in a nutrient enriched epidermal cushion smoothing out and plumping up the appearance of the skin. Dry lines, fine lines and coarse wrinkles appear radically diminished. Biocollasis protects the skin from the environment combating the damaging free radicals at the cellular level. Free radicals are unstable molecules in the environment caused by pollution, smoking and ozone that damage the skin precipitating hyper-pigmentation marks and dull sallow complexion. The EPF (Environmental Protection Factor) of Biocollasis gives the skin a porcelain like complexion and inner radiance. Biocollasis contains Elizabeth Grant's exclusive Torricelumn - clinically proven to increase dermal hydration to 100% within 4 weeks. Dehydration is a key factor in skin aging. By increasing the epidermal hydration levels at the cellular level with Elizabeth Grant's exclusive Torricelumn the skin appears younger, healthier and more resilient. Proven Results After 4 weeks of using Biocollasis the following results were observed*: 100% saw increase hydration 72% saw improvement in fine lines 52% saw improvement in deep lines 82% saw improved radiance * Percentage of women who noted visible improvement during 4 week consumer test.

I Love It!
By Mommy Magoo
from Red Deer,AB
I use this product every night just after I climb into bed. My hands are so moisturizer that I don't need hand lotion during the day. Before using this product my hand were so dry that my cuticles would crack and bleed and I was constantly in search of hand lotion. I love the way this product makes my hands feel. I don't use the gloves every night I'm not sure they help that much.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

No much of a surprise here. It is, after all, another EG product. It is great, and I find that I don't need to use it every day. It is the best hand cream ever, and the serum makes it even better. A little pricey though. As for the gloves, those I can do without. I find them uncomfortable, so I don't wear them.
I think This Cream Is Not Good For Me
By Lover of jewellery!
I bought this cream because my hands were so dry that I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, the cream just added to my problem. The gloves are huge so they fall while I am sleeping.I am not at all impressed but I am not returning it because I don't use creams and return them. I also want to finish the product and see maybe with time my skin will get used to it. If I change my mind concerning the product I will write another review but untill then I am not happy with it. This is the first time I write a bad review on any EG product.

I have tried many other hand products; this includes buying my own gloves to wear at night with other hand creams. Alas, I decided to try this. There is something about Elizabeth Grant herself, that 'makes' me want to buy EVERYTHING. It is hard to contain myself, but I must. However, the product for hands is absolutely lovely, and finally I have found a product that works. I am back today to buy, for 'fear' I will run out. At any rate, my hands have become softer, less prone to tearing, and feel moisturized. Again, THANK YOU EG and Suzanne. Really appreciate both your spirits.

Received this kit 3 weeks ago. Used every night (with gloves) and during the day and hope that i will see the great result:( This cream and serum does not work on my hand. I realised after each use my hands become more and more dry. Have no idea what's wrong.

I have been using this product for about a month now and have had great results. It has rejuvenated my hands. They no longer feel dry and flaky. They look much younger and the skin texture has improved. The only criticism would be the sent. The moisturizer has an unpleasant odor to it. It is probably from the caviar, but wish that another product could be added to improve this.

This is the only hand product I need and reorder it and reorder it. The magic here is the moisture gloves. Use them while you sleep with the great serum and cream and your hands will be the best they've ever been. Another trick (and for the best result) is to exfoliate your hands first with something gritty made for that purpose. Then apply serum, cream and moisture gloves overnight. And, yes, for use during the day your hands will not be greasy. Great stuff!

Very Very Soothing!!!
The serum is so soothing when you glide it on your hands and wrist area-it does sink into your skin and then the cream feels soooo good!One would think that with the serum AND the cream both that it would be sticky and not absorb into the hands but it does--a real spa treatment!!Your hands do feel hydrated for a couple of days afterwards even--if you do not use it every day so it is a very good serum and cream. This is an excellent gift for our lady relatives and friends in seniors homes.
buy this product!

I know this is a lot of $ for a hand cream. But please TRY THIS. I have used every hand cream under the sun. If it works, it makes my hands oily. And if it doesn't work, it is a waste of money. This is the most lovely stuff EVER. My hands are moisturised and soothed and within about 30 seconds the products is completely absorbed. If I have washed my hadn a lot in a day or it's cold I will use the gloves at night with the treatment. It is fabulous! I will be buying this again.

I have been washing my hands ALOT since I had my baby, and my hands were in horrible shape - constantly getting cracked with tiny lacerations, and the tips of my fingers always had a wrinkled look. I noticed a transformation in my hands after just one use! It is a wonderful serum and cream. I highly recommend. I normally use parabens free/ petrochemical free products, but nothing was helping with my hands until I used this product. My hands look great - they are back to being pretty (even prettier!) like they used to be :)
