Skin Shield Take On The Day Crème with SPF 30 Refill Pod


If you have previously purchased a Skin Shield Take On The Day Crème With SPF 30 and have finished this product, you now have the option to participate in our Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle Refill Programme. 

Please don’t throw away your Skin Shield Take On The Day Crème With SPF 30 jar, you’ll still need this! Simply detach the empty refill pod that sits within your jar, and send this back to us to ensure it’s refilled and kept in circulation. 

You can then replace your empty refill pod by purchasing another Skin Shield Take On The Day Crème With SPF 30 refill pod from us.

Our Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle Refill Programme is currently only available for New Zealand and Australian customers.  

More than 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry – the majority of it is not recycled. The UN has declared our current situation a ‘planetary crisis’. 

Our vision is a beauty industry, where all products are offered as part of a refillable model. When you purchase a refillable product over a new bottle there is a quantifiable impact*: 

  • 70% less CO2 emissions   
  • 60% less energy  
  • 45% less water  


  • Purchase a ‘refill pod’ on this website. This is a re-useable pod that has been cleaned, sterilised, refilled and kept in circulation.  
  • You will then receive your Emma Lewisham refill pod in a reusable shipping box.   
  • Put your empty/old Emma Lewisham pod inside the box it came in (using the tissue provided to protect it) and reseal the box.  Please do NOT return your jar, only the detachable pod inside it.  
  • Visit, and enter your information to get your pre-paid return shipping label, which you can use to send your empty bottle/jar back to us. You’ll need to provide your order number, which is “ELR” + the first 10 digits of the tracking number for your refill package (e.g. ELR1234567890). You can get your tracking number from your Emma Lewisham shipment confirmation email.

*LCA Centre 

Every Emma Lewisham product has been circular designed, with the intention of being refillable, recyclable or compostable. We believe the future of beauty is where brands take ownership for what happens to their packaging at the end of its life. 

Our Refill shipping bag is made from natural limestone waste offcuts and recycled resin in a process that uses solar energy and generates zero waste. It’s re-useable, waterproof and anti-bacterial. 

Stone paper has a quantifiable impact over regular paper*:

  • 20 trees not cut down
  • 900kgs CO2 emissions prevented
  • 150kgs solid waste note generated
  • 59.272L of water saved

Our Skin Shield Take On The Day Crème With SPF 30 Refill box is printed on an environmentally responsible paper which has been produced using PEFC certified pulp from responsible sources. We print on it using mineral, oil free, vegetable based inks and water based coatings. Oil based glue is required to assemble these boxes. Stamping foil used on the box does not affect recyclability. It is 100% recyclable in New Zealand with no chemical coatings, which means our boxes will degrade naturally.

Our Skin Shield Take On The Day Crème With SPF 30 Refill Pod is a colour plastic pod with a plastic lid made from imported virgin materials. When it's empty, you can return it to us to be refilled and kept in circulation. When it has been refilled over and over again and has had too much love, we then recycle it. 

We've worked hard to provide you with clean skincare via a supply chain that is efficient, transparent, and accountable. To this end, we have developed a Sustainability Framework which provides transparency on what Emma Lewisham is doing to address the six drivers of our supply chain: raw materials, supplier, manufacturing, distribution, retail outlets and customers. These are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  Read the Emma Lewisham Sustainability Framework.
