Skin Reset is the ultimate skin hero for restoring an even looking skin tone and radiant complexion. It’s powerful technology is proven to visibly minimise the look of brown spots (hyperpigmentation) and goes one advancement further by preventing further discolouration from appearing on the skin.  

It works by shutting down hyperpigmentation in two different biological pathways.

Firstly, our patented plant extracts contain active ingredients that interfere with an enzyme in your cells called tyrosinase.  When UV light from the sun comes into contact with the tyrosinase enzyme, it is usually activated to produce pigment (called melanin) which travels to the upper layer of the skin and you see as dark spots or hyperpigmentation.  Our plant actives inhibit tyrosinase, stopping the metabolic process that creates pigment - and therefore your dark spots.

Secondly, if any pigment still manages to form, we have a complementary active (vitamin B3) that works further downstream to deter the pigment from transferring to your skin’s surface. This is why our formulation is different from standard brightening products on the market. 

Our high performing botanicals are combined in a propriety and synergistic ratio maximising its performance.  Skin Reset also combats the signs of everyday collagen degradation, minimises fine lines and wrinkles and boosts the skin’s plumpness. 

Best for:  Hyperpigmentation •  dullness  •  dark spots  •  uneven skin tone  •  discolouration  •  age spots  •  acne  scars 

It’s not enough for our products to be 100% clean, they have to have uncompromising results. 

An independent in vitro clinical test (2019) comparing Emma Lewisham Skin Reset with 9 cosmeceuticals and high-end synthetic brightening creams found:

  • Of the products tested, 7 had no effect on the production of hyperpigmentation.  2 were effective at inhibiting hyperpigmentation (including Skin Reset)
  • Of the 2 products that were effective in inhibiting hyperpigmentation, Emma Lewisham Skin Reset saw the strongest results within 24 hours
  • Emma Lewisham Skin Reset was noted to be the “standout” product, which not only inhibited hyperpigmentation, but did not harm the growth and health of “good cells”

An independent 12-week double blind scientific study (2018) found:   

  • Emma Lewisham Skin Reset is proven to perform at a cosmeceutical grade - a breakthrough for natural skincare technology
  • 88% of women noted no new hyperpigmentation (brown spots) showed up on their skin during the time they wore Emma Lewisham Skin Reset
  • 77% of women rated Skin Reset effective at reducing hyperpigmentation

Methodology of this study: 

  • Twenty five subjects between the ages of 20 and 60
  • Subjects showed evidence of signs of facial hyperpigmentation on both sides of the face including freckles, sun spots, age spots, melasma, uneven skin tone and acne scarring
  • Assessment of the test sites were completed pre-application and following application of Emma Lewisham Skin Reset and Cosmeceutical brand at 6 and 12 weeks
  • Instrumental measurements, a questionnaire regarding the acceptability, efficacy and tolerability of the products and digital photographs and visual grading were done at pre-application, six and twelve weeks
  • Emma Lewisham Skin Reset and a Cosmeceutical were applied twice daily and sunscreen applied in morning
  • A photographic record was kept of the hyperpigmentation area on the skin at each time point
  • No adverse reactions were observed during the study
  • Individual results may vary.  This study was conducted at an independent laboratory in Australia during 2018, in accordance with ICH Guidelines for Good Clinical Practice

24 active natural ingredients 

Skin Reset includes 24 of the world’s most nutrient-dense, active and proven botanicals sourced from around the globe, chosen for their profile and ability to combat each phase of the hyperpigmentation process at a foundational level.

We believe in complex formulas and that more ingredients and less fillers equal more results – and the independent testing we’ve done confirms we’re right. We fill our products with the highest number of effective and innovative ingredients possible. Our goal is to create formulas that are effective and luxurious as anything in the world, without a drop of anything unclean or suspicious.  No compromises.

Each 30ml Skin Reset bottle contains 190 nutrients and phytonutrients, powerhouse vitamins, including organic Prickly pear (with the highest plant based concentration of vitamin E in the world), Kakadu plum (with the highest plant based concentration of vitamin C in the world), minerals, antioxidants, aminos, and omega fatty acids (3, 6, 9, and the rare “beauty omega” 7) for full-spectrum performance in combating hyperpigmentation.

Every ingredient works hard in our formulation to prevent and repair hyperpigmentation, but below are your noteworthy ‘skin heroes’:

  • Patented organically grown plant stem cells: The result of a research program in which a hundred plants were selected for their effectiveness in inhibiting tyrosinase (this is the enzyme which produces the pigment melanin, which you see as dark spots or pigmentation on your skin). The research and development took 5 years, and the resulting clinical studies showed phenomenal results for their effects in inhibiting the production and transfer of melanin to the skin. 
  • Kakadu Plum:  Vitamin C is a powerhouse for the skin, it’s one of the most research-backed skincare ingredients, and Kakadu Plum oil has the highest plant-based concentration of vitamin C in the world – 100 times more than an orange.  It brightens skin tone, reduces dark spots, and encourages cell renewal and collagen growth. 
  • Organic Prickly Pear: Has the highest plant-based concentration of vitamin E of any skin oil (150% more than Argan oil). A superstar antioxidant, vitamin E fights the aging effects of free radicals. 
  • Bearberry Extract: Bearberry extract contains a compound called arbutin. Acting in a similar way to hydroquinone, this ingredient is a great way to brighten dark spots, freckles, and scars without the negative drawbacks of hydroquinone.

If you ensure you're using Skin Reset regularly, you'll see the character of your complexion change and the appearance of any new hyperpigmentation or brown spots should be at a minimum. Emma herself saw real results in her complexion after 6 months of continuous use. 

Apply 1-2 pumps of Skin Reset, morning and night. Massage into face and neck. Always apply sunscreen after Skin Reset serum in the morning. 

Above all, always remember it takes ongoing protection, patience, and persistence to manage your hyperpigmentation.


Sun exposure is the number one trigger of hyperpigmentation. The sun’s rays affect your skin even on cloudy days, so protect it with sunscreen 365 days of the year to prevent further signs appearing.


Caused by years of sun damage, patience is needed to get results. Follow instructions and from 4 weeks you’ll start to see a new and improved skin tone.


Once hyperpigmentation is visible, continue to apply Skin Reset and protect your skin. 

If you have sensitive skin or allergies: While our formulation is 100% clean and naturally derived, we recommend if you have sensitive skin or allergies that you do a patch test first or consult your medical practitioner before using any new skincare product.  If your skin is not responding well to one of our products, including irritation, please discontinue use and contact a medical practitioner.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding: This serum is safe to use while pregnant and breastfeeding, however, we recommend you check with your doctor before using.
