Emma Lewisham is obsessed with her skin's microbiome – and yours, too! According to the eponymous brand founder, it might just be the long-awaited secret to battling breakouts without any drying, irritating side effects. And when her science-led, sustainability-focused skincare line already counts a long list of fans including everyone from actresses Margot Robbie and Phoebe Tonkin to model Lara Worthington, we're paying attention.
The world's first climate-positive beauty brand has added another first to its list by harnessing the powers of a unique skin-strain probiotic backed by 20 years of research in its new Supernatural Blemish Face Serum, all with the aim of balancing your all-important microbiome. Intrigued? So were we!
To find out exactly what the skin's microbiome is, how we can support it and what makes her new launch so groundbreaking, we turned to the source herself. Prepare to have everything you thought you knew about breakouts changed forever...
"For example, there's a skin-dwelling bacteria that plays a role in the formation of blemishes after pores become blocked. The presence of this blemish-causing bacteria highlights the importance of keeping the population of certain microbes in check – which is exactly what the specialised strain of probiotic used in the new Emma Lewisham Supernatural Blemish Face Serum does."
"We were determined to provide people with a blemish solution that not only delivered results, but simultaneously supported the overall condition of the skin."
"At Emma Lewisham, we were determined to provide people with a blemish solution that not only delivered results, but simultaneously supported the overall condition of the skin. Advances in research on the skin’s microbiome have highlighted the opportunity to work with our skin’s own microbial communities to deliver better solutions without harsh side effects."
"Our Supernatural Blemish Face Serum is the only skincare product in the world to contain this patented probiotic. It is incredibly rare for skincare products to contain truly live probiotics, but this formula has been extensively tested to confirm that its patented Micrococcus luteus probiotic remains live throughout its shelf life (up to 2 years when unopened and 4 months after opening).
"The result is a highly unique formulation that improves the skin’s microbiome, fundamental to not only reduce blemishes but to bolster the overall condition and appearance of the skin."
