Cosmetics guru, Liz Earle MBE, is perhaps best known for her prolific literary career. As the author of over 30 books on beauty and nutrition, Liz has developed a reputation as one of the foremost thought-leaders in health and wellbeing.
In addition to her writing and television commitments, Liz co-founded the multi-award winning Liz Earle Beauty Co. in 1995. It was after observing the growth of professional haircare ranges that Liz and her long-term business partner, Kim Buckland, spotted a gap in the market for a luxurious and affordable skincare range. Launched initially as a mail order business carrying just four products, Liz grew the brand on the back of word-mouth-marketing to achieve its coveted cult status.
Since stepping away from her beauty brand in 2010, Liz has revisited her longstanding interests in environmental concerns and healthy, sustainable nutrition. These subjects form central themes of the quarterly Liz Earle Wellbeing magazine, her latest business venture. As Editor-in-Chief, Liz is focused on discussing her health and wellbeing campaigns and her humanitarian charity, LiveTwice.
Alongside her magazine, Liz has also launched her Fine and Fair ethical jewellery brand which combines her passions for beauty, humanitarian causes, and natural botanicals. Her range of ethically sourced, Fairtrade gold botanical jewellery has yielded numerous accolades including Emerging Designer and Ethical Jewellery awards in Professional Jeweller‘s Collections of the Year 2015, and Best Jewellery Collection 2016 at CMJ’s trade show.
Aside from her writing and business commitments, Liz is a passionate campaigner. She serves as an ambassador and advocate for The Soil Association, The Sustainable Food Trust, Love British Food, The National Eczema Society, The National Osteoporosis Society, The Prince’s Trust, The Centre for Social Justice and Restart Africa, as well as a Patron of ACE Africa.
Liz will be speaking on July 10 at the British Library as part of our Inspiring Entrepreneurs: Feelgood Founders event. She will be joined by Simon Duffy, the co-founder of Bulldog; Sherrille Riley, Founder/Director of Nails & Brows and Beauty Edit Mayfair Boutique; and Mark Constantine OBE, Co-founder and Managing Director of Lush. You will have the opportunity to ask our expert panel your burning questions, and make connections over drinks and canapés at the networking reception after the event (which is included in the ticket price).
The event, which will be moderated by journalist and broadcaster, Nadine Dereza, is being held at the British Library’s knowledge centre. Tickets are £10 and can be purchased here.
