* Trinity Bioactives: Independent In-Vitro Scientific Testing into the effects on the production of type 1 collagen (2020)
This Supernatural 72 Hour Hydration Crème deeply hydrates the skin for over 72-hours, after just one application.
Saccharide Isomerate is a master hydration ingredient. It penetrates the skin’s epidermis deeply, for 72-hours, to increase the skin’s hydration ten-fold for a plump, dewy, luminous glow.
Collagen Boosting Peptides support collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, working to rebuild and repair damaged cells, to help future-proof the skin.
Daily use of this luxurious Crème will help lift, refine, plump and volumise the skin. You should see an improvement from first use – but when used regularly, you will notice a marked improvement to the character of your complexion's texture, radiance and hydration.
It’s not enough for our products to be natural, they have to have uncompromising results.
Independent In-Vitro Scientific Testing by an independent biomedical laboratory into the effects on the production of type 1 collagen (2020) found Emma Lewisham Supernatural Anti-Ageing 72-Hour Hydration Crème:
- Regenerated the production of Type I Collagen, outperforming La Mer Crème De La Mer and Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream
- Boost fibroblast production which promotes the production of collagen and elastin
In a six week consumer study:
- 94% of participants said the Supernatural Ageing 72-Hour Hydration Crème increased their skin's hydration
- 86% said it improved their skin's texture
- 82% said it increased their skin's glow
- 84% said it was their favourite night crème
How does Saccharide Isomerate work?
Its effectiveness is based on its unique composition, which is like that of the carbohydrate complex found in human skin, and on its unique mechanism for binding itself with the outer layers of the skin, giving it instant and long-lasting hydration abilities.
It's a fraction of the size of most other hydrating ingredients, meaning it can penetrate deep into the inner layers of the skin. Pentavitin can only be removed through the natural shedding of dead skin cells.
In in-vivo tests, Saccharide Isomerate is proven to:
Provide 72-hours of long-lasting, deep hydration
Prolong skin hydration up to 6 days after the last application
Face mapping shows that 3 hours after a single application, excessively dry skin is hydrated
Saccharide Isomerate has been clinically proven by skin hydration colour mapping to hold moisture in the skin for 72 hours. Hydration levels were measured at 30 different pre-defined points on the face, and a specific algorithm was then used to translate them into detailed facial colour maps.
24 high performing ingredients
We fill our products with the highest number of science-backed, synergistic and cutting-edge ingredients from around the globe, to produce high-performing natural products.
Every ingredient works hard in our formulation, but below are signature Emma Lewisham green-tech ingredients:
- Collagen Boosting Peptides from alaria esculenta: help to strengthen and condition the skin, to visibly improve its texture and suppleness. Collagen Peptides work to repair damaged cells and signal the skin to produce collagen, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lifting and plumping the skin.
- Saccharide Isomerate: Has a smaller molecular size than Hyaluronic Acid, meaning it can penetrate the skin’s epidermis deeper, for prolonged hydration results. It works to help the skin create its own internal water source to continually rehydrate itself, it locks in moisture by strengthening the skin’s barrier function. Saccharide Isomerate works in as little as three hours and testing proves it works non-stop for 72-hours, delivering more hydration than any other ingredient on the market before, for plump, lifted and dewy skin.
- Edelweiss Stem Cells: This uniquely cultivated form of Edelweiss has a high concentration of leontopodic acid and flavonoids, which are not found in normal Edelweiss species. Leontopodic acid helps to strengthen the skin's barrier, making it more resistant to environmental aggressors and promoting skin tension to lift the skin and help restore the appearance of a youthfully firm and plump complexion.
We believe in innovative, natural, complex formulas. We fill our products with the highest number of science-backed, consciously grown and cutting-edge ingredients from around the globe, to produce high-performing natural products.
Every ingredient works cohesively in our formulation, but below are our noteworthy ‘skin heroes’:
- Bakuchiol: extracted from the bakuchi seed, it's a natural alternative to retinol (vitamin A) and works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by boosting collagen production.
- Triple vitamin A complex a youth restoring booster complex from three sources of vitamin A to help reduce the look of wrinkles and targets all signs of aging.
- Lipid complex, Swertia Chirata Stem Cells: This particular complex contains building blocks of amino acids, vitamins and molecules in an exact concentration and combination of that found naturally in healthy young skin. A natural volume-booster, promoting the ‘un-doing’ of the visible signs of degradation and retraining cells to act like younger versions of themselves, whilst simultaneously helping to counteract loss of volume and fortify the fabric of your skin.
Full list of ingredients
Emma Lewisham aligns with 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:
- Natural ingredients are those to which only physical processes or fermentation have been applied.
- Derived natural ingredients are the result of chemical processes of natural ingredients.
- Nature-identical ingredients can be either pigments, minerals or preservatives. They are reproduced in the laboratory but exist in nature. These ingredients are allowed when strictly necessary in order to ensure consumer safety (preservatives) or because the extraction methods result in an ingredient becoming too chemical. All of them have one essential characteristic: they can be found in nature.
Below is our full list of ingredients with their EWG ratings in brackets (1 = low, 10 = high).

Before you start, blend and warm up the cream with your fingertips, activating the powerful actives in the crème. Then apply the crème using an upwards, circular motion to stimulate blood flow. Smooth it onto your skin, and the thick crème texture transforms into one that blends easily over the skin. Give it a couple of minutes to be absorbed, and your skin will feel nourished, plump and hydrated.
We recommend you store this crème in a cool, dry place and to use a spatula.
