Natural Ingredients

Emma Lewisham is a natural skincare brand. All of our ingredients have one essential characteristic: they can be found in nature. The definition of natural by NATRUE who are an International Natural and Organic Cosmetics Association who certify natural and organic cosmetics worldwide is classified in 3 ways:

  1. Natural ingredients are those to which only physical processes or fermentation have been applied.
  2. Derived natural ingredients are the result of chemical processes of natural ingredients.
  3. Nature-identical ingredients can be either pigments, minerals or preservatives. They are reproduced in the laboratory but exist in nature.

Emma Lewisham uses predominantly natural and naturally derived ingredients - and one natural identical ingredient (vitamin B3) in our Skin Reset serum.

For our preservative system we use: Dehydroacetic Acid (and) Benzyl Alcohol. NaTrue certified preservatives for natural and organic cosmetic, ECOCERT & COSMOS compliant, Soil Association approved. Dehydroacetic acid is found in nature in the flowers of the solandra species. Benzyl alcohol is a constituent found in many pure essential oils, and also in fruits and teas.

                      • When honey boxes are taken off the hives, the wax is cut open and the honey is extracted. The wax that is cut off – called cappings wax – is what is used in making beeswax pellets.  Therefore, cappings wax is technically a waste product of honey extracting. If it wasn’t used – it would just be dumped.
                      • The wax is not extracted directly from the beehives. The bees continue to have their own wax in their brood boxes (where the bees and queen live). This is not accessed. The honey boxes are added and removed through the season, but the bees’ home is untouched. Therefore, it is a sustainable practice that is not cruel to the bees as a waste product is being used.
                      • The raw yellow wax is either melted into blocks by the beekeeper, or comes to the supplier to melt down into blocks (first stage of production process), before it goes through various filtering processes prior to making pellets.
