World’s first carbon-positive beauty brand Emma Lewisham unveils its new 100-percent circular-designed product range
We love our skincare – so much so that our bathroom cupboards are lined to the edge with cleansers, exfoliators, serums and moisturisers. Sure, these products might make a difference when it comes to how dewy our complexion appears, but what about their effect on the planet? If you’re keen on adding some more sustainable products into your skincare routine, let us introduce you to Emma Lewisham, the world’s first carbon-positive beauty brand.
Innovative New Zealand natural skincare brand Emma Lewisham has been committed to finding carbon-positive solutions since it first burst into the beauty scene in 2019. Now, the forward-thinking brand can proudly call itself the first producer of a carbon-positive product range. To achieve this accomplishment, Emma Lewisham measures its carbon emissions throughout its entire supply chain – from production of raw ingredients to product packaging and more – in order to put reduction plans in place before positively offsetting what could not be reduced. By doing this, the brand has successfully offset its remaining emissions by an additional 25-percent to become the world’s first carbon-positive beauty brand at a product level.
To help offset the 120 billion units of waste that the beauty industry currently produces annually (big yikes), Emma Lewisham has also shared its IP for its 100-percent circular designed product packaging and carbon positive model. This means that other brands can use this handy knowledge to start making widespread change within the beauty industry and to give our planet the helping hand it needs. Apart from being super cute, effective and sustainable, the range is even endorsed by celebrated environmentalist Dr Jane Goodall – talk about iconic. You can shop Emma Lewisham’s range of skincare products, which includes the Illuminating Oil Cleanser, Supernatural 72-Hour Creme, Skin Shield SPF 30, Illuminating Exfoliant and much more, online here.
