We want to be as close as possible to the manufacturing of our products and this is why we manufacture 10 minutes from Emma Lewisham’s head office in Auckland, New Zealand. This is where we do all our R&D and manufacturing of Emma Lewisham products from scratch.
Working closely and in collaboration with our green-chemists means we have collectively been able to achieve many innovations in our products and challenge the status quo – including cracking the natural preservative code and producing 100% natural, luxurious and scientifically backed products that rival the most iconic luxury brands.
Our laboratory has staff across formulation, operations, quality assurance, regulatory affairs, manufacturing, production, packing, and warehousing services. It holds an organic manufacturer’s certification from BioGro and are certified by BioGro to manufacture NATRUE certified natural and BioGro certified organic products, meeting internationally recognised standards. It empowers people from the local community and pays living wage.
As with every company, water and energy are needed in our manufacturing process. The laboratory is committed to treating these resources with respect and undergo continual process improvements such as ensuring the water used is treated, before going back into our waterways.
We manufacture in New Zealand as we are leading the way globally with 80% renewable electricity. Our laboratory has recycling, water usage and waste management policies at the core of their manufacturing.
We are undergoing an audit in 2020 to understand our water consumption per kilogram of our manufactured product and to set a goal of reducing this in 2021. This is an area we are working to understand across our full supply chain, in order to be transparent on how we are performing and set meaningful goals.
We ask all of our manufacturers to sign our Supplier Code of Conduct.

“I love working with Emma and her team. It’s a very collaborative approach and together we push each other to achieve what hasn’t been achieved in natural skincare. Emma Lewisham products use the most luxurious and premium ingredients available and deliver efficacious results. There’s no compromise and the work Emma does to review her full supply chain is truly such a significant amount of work and a huge undertaking. We are very proud of what we have created”
