Ocean with waves on rocks

ishga Organic Seaweed Skincare

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. 

Indulge in the restoring powers of the ocean and allow our marine skincare to connect your mind, body and soul back to nature.

The ocean is at the heart of ishga, and our unique seaweed extract is at the core of our award-winning organic skincare range. Since day one back in 2013, we’ve been sustainably harvesting the wonder ingredient on the shores of our home of the Isle of Lewis. We allow nature to replenish her stocks by rotating our harvesting locations and only taking what we need. Our team carries out weekly trips to freshly collect four types of seaweed that are vital to our results-driven skincare loved by many of you across the world! We owe our powerful hydrating, firming, healing, and skin protecting formulas to Fucus Serratus Seaweed, Pelvetia Canaliculata Seaweed, Ascophyllum Nodosum Seaweed and Fucus Vesiculosis Seaweed; each containing its own unique skin enhancing properties.

When our seaweed extract is combined with high-performing active skincare ingredients, it becomes a transformative must-have ingredient for your skincare shelf. We only use the highest quality natural ingredients. Light base oils such as sweet almond or jojoba, essential oils like rose geranium or lemongrass, and nourishing moisturisers including cocoa and shea butters, glide blissfully on and balance, nourish, smooth and repair.

It can be easy for the number of skincare products we own to quickly grow to a shelf full of lotions and potions all promising miraculous results. It’s easy to end up with a collection of duplicate, single-purpose products that you might’ve tried and not seen results from, eventually making their way to the skincare graveyard!  

While it's not an entirely new concept, ‘Skin Streaming’ is a skincare trend that has grown in popularity recently.

Our skin is the largest organ and with that important role comes a lot of hard work.

As we wind down, the evening gives skin a chance to renew itself and heal any damage from the day like UV exposure, pollution or stress. 

Let’s find out what happens to our skin while we sleep.
