Beauty’s Benchmark: The Emma Lewisham Difference
We promise to be Beauty’s Benchmark in:
Scientifically active and proven skincare
Our products are scientifically proven to give you results. Evidence based and rooted in science, we have them independently tested by an independent experienced biomedical researcher where they are proven to outperform even the most recognised, high performing brands on the market. We are known for biologically active, concentrated formulas.
We believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise between having natural formulations and ones that actually work. Our products prove that through green-tech active ingredients and effective concentrations and combinations - scientifically proven and natural formulations can co-exist. Independent testing speaks the loudest, so we uniquely commission independent laboratories to perform in vivo (on people) and in vitro (in the laboratory) testing on all our products - comparing their results against the most recognised, high performing and luxury products on the market. Through this testing, Emma Lewisham products continue to outperform, with our internationally award winning, Skin Reset serum, outperforming world leading brightening products in both brightness and even skin tone.
“Unlike most cosmetic products, the bioactivity in Emma Lewisham products has been independently scientifically tested and shown to stimulate - meaning that the product has been proven to do as it says.” - Paul F Davis, PhD Director of Research Trinity Bioactives
Planet positive skincare
We care deeply about our planet and ensuring that our children can enjoy Mother Nature - pristine and beautiful, just as we have. We promise to lead the movement towards a circular and carbon positive beauty industry, where refills, recycling and regeneration are simply responsible business
We are extremely passionate about moving the beauty industry towards a circular model - meaning that anything produced can be refilled or recycled with none of our planet’s precious resources ending up as waste. We must move away from the linear system of ‘take, make, waste’, towards a circular system of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle and regenerate’. All Emma Lewisham products are refillable – a world first, and we go further by taking ownership of everything we produce, taking back all of our used packaging globally, to ensure it is reused or is recycled through our ‘Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle’ partnership. It is important to understand that most beauty containers are not kerbside recyclable, so initiatives such as this are vital in order to redirect waste from landfill and move towards circularity.
With waste being the single biggest contributor to carbon emissions in the beauty industry, we are also on a path to becoming certified Carbon Positive at a product level – a world first in beauty. This means that after reducing our carbon as much as possible, we will offset more than what remains in order to not just neutralise our impact - but create a positive one. Through our efforts in each branch of sustainability, we aim to bring about a truly beautiful, beauty industry.

Luxuriously natural skincare
Our products are 100% natural. Our scientists have developed world leading, luxurious, green tech formulations that are free from fillers, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances and synthetic preservatives - because nature truly does perform best.
The natural world holds the most nutrient dense, powerful ingredients in the word. At Emma Lewisham, we use the most active, innovative, high-performing and proven of these, all chosen following years of research and scientifically proven results. We pack our products with not one, but multiple active ingredients, using concentration levels in line with scientific recommendations and absolutely no fillers. This ensures that every drop you use is of a potency proven to perform and is working hard to deliver you visible results.
We work in collaboration with global R&D laboratories who are at the forefront of identifying cutting-edge natural ingredients, with our scientists using the most advanced extraction techniques to distil these extracts while making sure that they maintain their full nutrient profile and potency. Some of our hero ingredients include Plant Stem Cells, Saccharide Isomerate (72-hour hydration super ingredient), Ceramides and Lipids, as well as green tech ingredients that are a result of over 5 years of research by the Swiss Institute of Agriculture. We prioritise using organic extracts and are working towards sourcing all of our ingredients from regenerative farms in order to positively impact both the health of our soil and the livelihoods of our farmers and surrounding communities.
Alongside the efficacy of our products, we work tirelessly to create luxurious formulations with velvety, nourishing textures using absolutely no fillers - only nourishing, nutrient rich ingredients - found in nature.
Pioneering a better way
We promise to continually ask ‘why’- to define a new normal, through finding the best ways of doing things, both by people and the planet.
We are inquisitive by nature and inspired to navigate a new path. We are passionate about standing up for, and fighting for what we believe is right, even if this isn’t the easy way forward. We are driven to always be better, and do better - through improving ourselves, our business, our community and our planet. We know this is a path with no end and will always look to overcome the next challenge.
We are currently focused on leading the way in creating a circular, transparent and carbon positive beauty industry alongside campaigning for beauty regulation changes within New Zealand and Australia to reflect best international practices and the latest scientific research.

We promise to be transparent in all aspects of our business - from supplier to shelf. When it comes to our ingredients, we disclose each and every one and can trace all of them back to where they are grown - we call this farm to face. When it comes to you, our customer, we promise to always be honest and support you in feeling understood, educated, empowered and beautiful.
