Elizabeth Grant

Elizabeth Grant is a much loved skincare range here at Ideal World, with an interesting story behind its founder:

Elizabeth Grant: "I started this company in 1958 in London, England.

"I did not always have the Beautiful skin that I have today. My skin was damaged by a bomb blast during the Second World War. It was on a Sunday and I was walking down a street when a V2 rocket exploded nearby. Shards of glass were embedded on the one side of my face and my skin was scarred. That was a difficult time for me as I was so conscious of how I looked. I used to walk around with dark glasses and tried to avoid people.

"All that changed when I read about a substance (Torricelumn). I had some made up for me and I started to use it as part of my skincare regime.

"The glasses came off and I felt confident again.

"At the time I was a make-up artist. One day one of my favourite clients came in for her make-up. Her skin was a mess because the heavy make-up we used in those days clogged the pores and robbed the complexion of its ability to breath. Her skin looked tired. While I was applying her make-up she asked me how I kept my skin so good. You could have knocked me down with a feather. My skin was described as looking good!

"I told her about the preparation that had been specially formulated for me. She asked me if I had some and of course I gave her a sample.

"10 days later she called me to ask if I could get her some more. She said her skin was feeling softer and smoother. When I saw her 6 weeks later, her skin was glowing. That was my, "Ahah!" moment. I realize I had a product that made a difference. I decided to develop my own skin care lines that contained my secret formulation I called Torricelumn.

"Today I have beautiful skin. I am in my eighties. My skin is good and I owe all to Torricelumn."

Zhuzh!

With an early background in cabaret and musical theatre the Zhuzh! Founder was always "interfering", with everything from costume designs, lighting, musical arrangements and choreography, in a desperate need to "zhuzh" things up - to add a bit of sparkle, splendour and striking style.

Although the word "zhuzh" has been backstage lingo as long as theatres have had dressing rooms, as with so many slang words when they start out, nobody knew how to spell it to write it down.

Zhuzh! Was launched in 2002. 2015 is the 13th year Zhuzh! has been with Ideal World. Around half a million units sold in that time.

The aim is simple: to satisfy each and every customer in the same way that we want to be satisfied when consumer-testing a product. Although much of our time is now spent developing the range, the Zhuzh! collections will never be so vast that we can't maintain our personal input and always remember our original inspiration: YOU.

Zhuzh! has won the 'Best Tanning' award in our Health and Beauty Awards,Viewers Choice Award in 2010 and Most 5* reviews in 2013.
