Founder of Emma Lewisham
Emma Lewisham on Circular Beauty, Carbon Positivity and Being Recognised by Jane Goodall
Today’s guest is Emma Lewisham, founder of her namesake beauty brand. Hailing from New Zealand, the brand was born from Emma’s personal desire for products that were truly clean and sustainable, but also delivered real, scientifically-validated results.
Growing up, Emma was surrounded by strong female role models she was inspired by women who took risks and embraced challenges. Emma’s grandmother was one of the first female CEOs in NZ, and her mother was a business owner and entrepreneur.
Fearlessness and confidence was naturally wired into her. So she left her corporate career and after 5 years of research she launched with one product: the Skin Reset Serum, which is scientifically proven to prevent and reverse the signs of hyperpigmentation, dullness, age spots, and uneven skin tone.
It saw immediate success, and the brand has been in high demand all over the world ever since.
In our conversation we talk about Emma’s commitment to sustainability. Her entire supply chain is fully traceable, every ingredient used is of the highest quality, and recently the brand announced its carbon positive status — an accolade that was incredibly supported by Jane Goodall.
Emma truly believes that in life and work there are two options: either comfort or courage - her view is that you can’t have both.
Hearing about her amazing journey, her definition of the word clean and learning more about her science-backed formulation it is clear to see that Emma has achieved her goal of creating a new benchmark in beauty.
And in the process Emma is inspiring the next generation of women including her young daughter to follow their dreams, step up to challenges and live a courageous life.
