A revolutionary organic, vegan moisturiser, our Balancing Marine Face Cream is full of natural goodness to moisturise and will transform any skin type or stubborn problem, while brightening, freshening and smoothing wrinkles.

A powerful blend of clean skincare ingredients, it includes ishga’s seaweed extract and legendary Scottish spring water, which together yield 86 vitamins and minerals.

Shea butter and extract of macadamia contain essential fatty acids Omega 6 and 7, to absorb excess sebum, while nourishing thirsty skin. Vitamin E plumps, heals and smooths, and fresh citrus peel combats oil and detoxifies to keep skin clean and fresh.

Aromatic oils of bergamot, sandalwood and patchouli add a soothing, refreshing scent, to lift your spirits and calm your senses.

ishga Balancing Marine Cream is true to the principles of vegan skincare and is organic certified by the Soil Association. Sustainable, cruelty-free Scottish skincare.

Our award-winning Marine Creams are suitable for everyone, and you can choose the one best suited to your skin type based on its ingredients and benefits. Find out more about the differences here.

Also available in 30ml.

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.

Hebridean Spring Water

Known for its unique healing and therapeutic properties. Collected locally on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, near ishga HQ. Mineral-rich and pure. We do not use any tap water in our products, only Hebridean sea and spring water collected locally here on the Isle of Lewis.

Apricot Kernel Oil

Apricot Kernel Oil enhances skin elasticity and leaves a soft and smooth quality. It is absorbed easily and is perfect for those with sensitive skin. It also brightens, reduces fine lines and decreases any puffiness of the skin.

Aloe Vera

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.

Cucumber Extract

Cucumber naturally contains Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Caffeic Acid. These nutrients help to soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling. Cucumber calms, soothes and promotes balance in the skin.

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.
