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.

Lovely ingredients make this special.
from CORNWALLIS , NS
This is a new favourite and much preferred over EG cleansers which preceded it. I am very careful about ingredients and love the things which are NOT in this cleanser. It applies smoothly over your skin, feeling wonderful as you gently massage it in. As a cleansing milk, there is no foam or lather (no SLS either!). It rinses off easily, leaving your skin so soft and moist.This is such a gentle cleanser to use-I really enjoy how my skin feels, even before applying my other products.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Creamy & Refreshing
Personally, I like this cleansing milk. It prevents me from "over scrubbing" my face - and I like to scrub! It goes on smoothly and I massage it gentle over my face, and neck - Décolleté; I don't worry about how much I do or do not rinse off, as I know that this is treating my face! Then, I try to pat my face dry (again, I like to scrub dry, too!) Followed by the beautiful toner, my face is smooth and moisturized. It's a lovely cleanser/treatment for aging skin.
Not good at all. What happened to the awesome cleansers I've used for years?? Now I'm out looking for somethingm that does what her cleanser used to. I threw mine away!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love Love this Cleanser
This cleanser is a hit for me. It does not leave your skin feeling greay after you use it. It feels so soft everytime I wash my face. I also recommend to use Elizabeth's Cleansing Mask in conjunction of the Cleansing Milk. All I can say this is a great cleaser and I just love it. My only request Elizabeth & Susan is that if you could make this in a super size that would be so great.
from Middle Sackville, Nova Scotia
I have used all of Elizabeth Grant's cleansers in the past 11 years and have never been disappointed. I am particularly fond of this milky cleanser because it is so gentle and removes all of my makeup as well. It leaves my skin clean and smooth and the toner that accompanies it is so gentle and effective; the perfect combination!

This creamy cleanser is something I was waiting for from Elizabeth because she had other cleansers but not the cream one-This is very mild, has a clean smell-no perfumey smell at all-I just smooth it and massage a bit over my face and neck and then wash off.I like it because it is not soapy and leaves no residue.I also find that it does clean and does take off makeup and a great portion of eye makeup-mascara and eye liner-but needs a real eye makeup cleanser to clean the whole lot of it off.However with my skin, I need a real deep cleanser a few times a week along with this because this mild cleanser is not quite enough by itself to deep clean my pores.-my 4 stars is indicative of this.But I do like it for my face and appreciate its' creamy texture.
This Is The Best Cleansing Milk !
I'm very impressed with this new cleaning milk! It goes on well and you massage it in, then wash it off. It smells great after, and your face feels so clean and fresh. Pick it up and you will not be disappointed. Great new product Elizabeth Grant!
creamy and good for sensitive skin
By Lorna Doone
from St. Catharines, Ontario
I love this cleanser for my sensitive skin. It feels creamy and dreamy as I massage my face with it. It did not leave a residue on my skin, in fact, it rinsed off with a face cloth and tepid water, quite nicely.It removes makeup, but not as well as a specific makeup remover does. If I don't have much makeup on, it is fine, but more than one coat of mascara, and long wearing lipstick will not come completely off.I will try some of the other EG cleansers, but this one is still quite nice, and good for my sensitive skin.

Not my favourite
By Sylvia - TSC Fan
from Edmonton, Alberta
I find this product does not lather and it feels like a film is left on my face after I use it. When I use the toner after cleansing my face with this product, traces of makeup are on the cotton pad which should not happen.

I've used other EG cleaners and they are great. This one is moisturizing but does not remove all my makeup. I have to use another cleanser to get the non-waterproof mascara off.
