Emma Lewisham continues success streak with Marie Claire win
Since launching in 2019, Emma Lewisham’s eponymous skincare brand has sat firmly at the front and centre of the beauty industry, at a local and global level. From taking home Best Emerging Business at the 2021 Westpac Business Awards to numerous celebrity endorsements, the homegrown powerhouse continues to go from strength to strength in an increasingly competitive industry. The brand’s most recent accolade is winning ‘Best Progress Towards Circularity‘ at the UK Marie Claire Skin Awards.
The highly-coveted Marie Claire Skin Awards is a notable pillar in the global beauty awards calendar. The Awards champion premium brands that are leading the way in product innovation and sustainable beauty. This year, the awards were voted for by an all-star line-up including names such as award-winning aesthetician Abigail James, celebrity MUA Adeola Gboyega, Marie Claire Head of Sustainability Ally Head, Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief Andrea Thompson and wellbeing Expert & Author Jasmine Hemsley.
The Best Progress Towards Circularity accolade is awarded to a company that has achieved significant success in operating in a circular business model instead of the linear, conventional take-make-waste model of doing business.
Of the win, Emma Lewisham said: “To be recognised amongst the other globally renowned nominees is astounding and a true testament to the industry-leading work we’re doing. Since our inception, I have been determined to set a new benchmark in scientifically proven natural skincare and sustainable skincare. I see business as a tool to tackle problems, find solutions and leave behind something better. To me, this means using business as a force for good. Profits should never come at an expense to people or the planet, and I’m proud to be building a business that proves that sustainability and success can go hand-in-hand.”
As of September 2021, Emma Lewisham was the world’s first verified carbon positive beauty brand under Toitū Envirocare’s Climate Positive Product Certification. All of Emma Lewisham’s products are circular-designed and refillable through the Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle. The Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle is our global take-back programme for refilling and recycling to keep our packaging in circularity and reduce carbon emissions. We offer refills for all our products. When you purchase a refill pod or pouch instead of a brand-new product, you reduce your carbon emissions by up to 74%. For any refill pod or pouch that we cannot sterilise and reuse, we ensure it’s recycled through TerraCycle. Emma Lewisham publicly released its sustainable IP for its circular designed product packaging and climate positive business model, enabling small and large competitors alike to capitalise on Emma Lewisham’s investment and start making widespread change within the beauty industry. Emma Lewisham’s pioneering sustainability efforts garnered a personal endorsement from renowned ethologist and environmentalist Dr Jane Goodall. Emma Lewisham is also B Corp certified.
