Growing up in the island nation of New Zealand, it’s no surprise that Emilia Mar founder, Emily Tillett, has an intrinsic connection to the ocean. In a country known for its incredible natural surrounds, kaitiakitanga (guardianship) of the land was a value instilled from childhood and a guiding ethos as she spent years exploring the world beyond her home shores.
Time spent on board luxury superyachts and living in different cities around the globe strengthened that connection to the sea, however it also showed Emily how much work needed to be done to reduce pollution and plastic waste.
Determined to make a difference. Emily sought a seachange - for herself, and for the planet.
Seeing firsthand that most personal care products were at odds with what mattered most to her, she envisaged a brand that would not only nourish and care for skin naturally, but also protect and care for the environments she loved to explore.
After years of research and testing, Emilia Mar was created to provide a luxurious yet more sustainable alternative to personal care amenities - in the home, on board superyachts and in luxury accommodation.
Plastic has disastrous effects on reefs and marine life. Emilia Mar uses only recycled ocean-bound plastic for all product packaging, ensuring that plastic is kept out of landfill and seas, and in continued circulation instead.
Indulgent in design
Harnessing the power of natural ingredients, Emilia Mar is designed to revitalise, nourish, heal and protect while embodying the purity of the Pacific Ocean and adding a sense of luxury and ritual to your self care regime.
