Ocean with waves on rocks

ishga Organic Seaweed Skincare

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 is home to ishga, and where we sustainably hand harvest the seaweed that's at the heart of our skincare range. Hebridean seaweed contains 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 minerals to create a remarkable range of products for all skin types.

Discover the magic of the Hebrides

On a faraway isle, near the north west coast of Scotland, we’re using an ancient secret to create award-winning natural skincare, using the life-giving power of the sea to restore the skin and the soul. This paradise is a world of myth and legend, and an age from stress and strain, where clear Hebridean waters cleanse golden sands to wash problems away. The ocean is our heartbeat, a source of infinite abundance with the ability to heal and rejuvenate.

Hand-harvested seaweed yields vitamins; minerals; amino acids; anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids, and we combine them with local spring water to harness over 86 vitamins and minerals. Our scientists use a bespoke, natural process to create a truly unique range of organic skincare with the most remarkable anti-aging, hydrating and skin-renewing properties.

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.

When we experience breakouts, it can be easy to assume that all pimples are the same. Pimples are pores that have become clogged. This can happen as a result of your skin producing excess sebum, a buildup of dead skin cells/oils, or the area has come into contact with something else – such as touching your face too much (we have all been there!). Sometimes it can be a combination of factors, and our lifestyles, hormones and diets can play a part too. 

Let's look at the differences between whiteheads, blackheads and acne.
