Elizabeth Grant is the founder and face of Elizabeth Grant Skin Care. She created the company in 1948, a time when it was unusual for women to run a business. Her determination, perseverance, and the miraculous blend of Torricelumn™ have built Elizabeth Grant Skin Care into the global sensation it is today.
Elizabeth Grant was not always the television personality and skin care icon she is today. Born in England, Elizabeth worked as a makeup artist in London where she worked on some of the most famous faces at the time, including Vivien Leigh, Sean Connery and Noel Coward.
In 1945 she suffered severe damage to her face from a bomb blast, an event that shattered her self-confidence. After trying it all in the hopes of restoring her skin, she found a natural substance used to treat war wounds. She commissioned a special serum including this substance and applied it to her damaged skin. After a few months, her skin improved remarkably. Elizabeth stopped hiding and started living again.
She knew she was onto something when her clients started complimenting her skin. When she shared samples of this miraculous blend, people came back with healthier skin and asked for more. A few years later in 1948, Elizabeth launched Elizabeth Grant Skin Care to share with more people this miraculous blend that healed her skin, Torricelumn™.
