Key Active Ingredients and Benefits

Fucus Serratus Seaweed Extract

Fucus Serratus Seaweed is one of the key ingredients we use at ishga, due to its incredible benefits for the skin. It contains high levels of natural antioxidants known as polyphenols. These antioxidants provide protection against damage to the skin by neutralising free radicals (damaging atoms in the air). Fucus Serratus Seaweed has also been found to regenerate skin cells, promote natural collagen and hyaluronic acid production in the skin, and deliver hydrating properties to lock in moisture.

Ascophyllum nodosum (Knotted Wrack Seaweed)

Ascophyllum Nodosum Seaweed is one of the key ingredients we use at ishga, due to its incredible benefits for the skin. Contains high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols which help repair the skin. Known for its exfoliating properties to smooth and brighten skin.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba is a carrier oil ideal for all skin types. It hosts antioxidant properties to protect and heal the skin. It can help to reduce redness and keep skin calm and soothed.


Glycerin is a humectant which means it attracts moisture to your skin. It helps your skin absorb water from the air reducing any dry and dull patches. Using glycerin regularly can help to make your skin smooth and prevent problems associated with dryness.

Bergamot Oil

Bergamot is a natural cleanser and can help to unblock pores. It also deeply nourishes the skin and helps to control sebum levels for balance in natural oil production.


Sandalwood features gentle astringent properties which make it an effective yet gentle toner. Sandalwood oil tightens the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, while calming skin to even its tone and make it feel renewed.


Patchouli is known for its ability to regenerate the epidermis to leave your complexion rejuvenated. Heals and detoxes your skin and contains active compounds that help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
