ishga Hydrating Hand Cream is a beautiful organic, vegan handcream, designed to heal and nourish hands, while protecting them from environmental damage.
Our powerful seaweed extract is combined with natural moisturiser from argan oil and aloe vera, and an uplifting blend of nourishing rose geranium, patchouli, and red mandarin essential oils.
A light, quickly-absorbed cream, it contains the ancient skin healing remedy Lus Nan Laogh (Lus-Na-Loy), a healing tonic made from the aquatic plant Menyanthes Trifoliata, which is found in the peat-bottomed lochs of the Hebrides.
This remarkable plant has been keeping islanders healthy for generations. Infused into our legendary Hebridean spring water, it creates an ingredient that is highly effective in healing inflammatory skin conditions.
Use regularly throughout the day, and watch your hands become visibly smoother and healthier.
ishga Hydrating Hand Cream is true to the principles of vegan skincare and all our ingredients are COSMOS organic certified by the Soil Association. Sustainable, cruelty-free skincare that is planet-friendly.

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.
Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Great for skin conditions such as psoriasis.
Shea butter is non-comedigenic meaning it won't block pores whilst providing moisture boosting properties to the skin. It smoothes and refines the skins appearance, whilst healing and protecting. It contains antioxidants, making it perfect for ageing skin, but can also help to tackle break-outs, making it ideal for all skin types.
Contains moisturising factors and can reduce excess sebum. Argan oils omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and linoleic acids, work to hydrate skin and soften dry areas.
Hydrates, soothes and promotes skin renewal. Calms, cools and balances the skin. Ideal for reducing redness and inflammation whilst promoting a refreshed and even skin tone.
Mandarin Red Essential Oil
Uplifting, soothing and calming to the skin. Tones, heals and can reduce excess oil and acne breakouts.
Can help to balance the skin's natural oil production. It can minimise the appearance of enlarged pores and brighten skin, and is excellent for those with acne.
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.
Experience results-driven skincare derived from the ocean, backed by science
The name ishga is derived from the Gaelic word for water. The pure, clean waters of the Hebridean Islands off the north west coast of Scotland are home to ishga, and where we sustainably hand harvest the four types of seaweed that are at the heart of our organic skincare range. Hebridean seaweed contains potent natural antioxidants with properties which transform and protect skin. ishga has developed a bespoke process to extract its natural goodness, harnessing an abundance of vitamins and bioactive minerals to create a remarkable range of high performing products that deliver efficacy for all skin types.
