Formulated with 24 natural ingredients, including Hyaluronic Acid, organic Prickly Pear, organic Kakadu Plum and omega fatty acids (3, 6, 9, and the rare “beauty omega” 7) for the regeneration of collagen, skin elasticity, the brightening of skin and reduction in fine lines.

Provides antioxidant defence against environmental aggressors such as pollution and UV light at SPF 30 protection, which degrade the skin’s collagen structure and contribute to premature aging.  80% of visible facial aging is from UV exposure. UV rays are present every day, as they penetrate through windows, clouds and rain. Skin Shield Daily Face protects your skin from facial aging with SPF30 UVA/UVB protection.  Our world first, light, non-greasy mineral formulation makes it feel like you’re not even wearing sun protection. 

More than your ordinary day cream. Skin Shield SPF 30 was formulated by an internationally recognised expert on sun protection.

It is tested to the Australian/New Zealand AS/NZS 2604 standard, which is based on the international ISO 24443 for broad spectrum testing, and ISO 24444 for in-vivo SPF testing.

This means it is scientifically verified as delivering SPF 30 broad spectrum protection, giving you confidence that you’re getting a high level of protection.

24 effective botanical ingredients

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 don’t focus on one hero ingredient per product, 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.

Every ingredient works hard in our formulation but below are your noteworthy ‘skin heroes’: 

  • Hyaluronic Acid:  Hyaluronic acid is like the glass of water your skin desperately needs when out in the sun.  It's a molecule that draws and locks in moisture to your skin, supports elasticity, and boosts collagen production. It has an ability to absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
  • Sea Buckthorn:  This powerhouse ingredient contains over 190 bioactive substances to nourish the skin.  Sea Buckthorn is rich in the rare omega 7 (the “beauty omega”) which promotes skin elasticity, cell regeneration and fights free radicals – it has one of the highest concentrations of this on earth.  Sea Buckthorn also boasts 3x more vitamin A than carrot, which stimulates collagen production and evens skin tone. 
  • Patented organically grown beauty complex from 7 alpine plant extracts:  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 hyperpigmentation 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. 
  • Organic Prickly Pear:  Is the ultimate beauty oil.  It has the highest concentration of vitamin E of any skin oil (150% more than Argan oil). A powerful antioxidant that can penetrate through layers of skin, assisting the body with the natural wound-healing process. Vitamin E also helps to renew skin cells, making them stronger and reducing oxidative stress.
  • Organic 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 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.

In addition, our formulations contain benzyl salicylate, citronellol, eugenol, geraniol, linalool in very low concentrations as constituents of our essential oils. It’s worth noting that the EWG rating for these, refer only to the individual constituents extracted in a lab from the essential oil, or synthetic replications. The ratings are not applicable to our formulas, as we never use extracted or synthetic constituents, only the pure naturally occurring essential oil.

Every Emma Lewisham product has been designed with the intention of being fully recyclable / compostable at the end of its life or part of a refill programme in the future. We believe the future of beauty is where brands take ownership for what happens to their packaging at the end of its life, and that we should all aspire to a truly closed-loop recycling system.

This product is included in our Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle free recycling programme. 

Our Skin Shield 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, whether they are composted or simply put in the landfill.

Our Skin Shield tube is made from plastic for practical and safety reasons. It is a world first, made from 100% imported recycled post consumer HDPE #2 plastic, which means we buy non-virgin plastic already circulating in the global plastics market that needs to be used. By reusing it over and over again, we are actively diverting waste from landfill. This tube is 100% recyclable, however, may not be able to be widely recycled in New Zealand. If recycling: please cut the top of the sunscreen tube and clean wash it out so it is clear of residue. The cap is made from non-recyclable #5 polypropylene virgin plastic.

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.
