ishga FAQ's

You can find your nearest ishga spa partner here. We are also stocked at Harrods H Beauty store in St. James Quarter, Edinburgh.

Yes! Used throughout the ishga skincare range, our seaweed extracts and powders deliver anti-ageing, hydrating and skin-renewing properties. Antioxidant polyphenols provide protection against environmental damage to the skin by neutralising free radicals. Used throughout the ishga range, our mineral-rich extract is blended with organic ingredients and essential oils to create each results-driven product.

The seaweed scent of your product can vary each time you buy it as it depends on when our seaweed was harvested and in what climate conditions. Although the scent may change from time to time, you can still be assured it is consistent with the high quality of ishga products. 

Like all plants, seaweed has a yearly life cycle. Depending on when we harvest, the seaweed extract can vary in colour/texture/scent which then leads to variations in our products. This does not affect the performance of the product, so you can continue to enjoy using your ishga products, knowing they are working their Hebridean magic! 

Occasionally when making natural skincare products, our batches may vary in appearance, texture or scent. This happens as each ingredient we use is affected by external factors such as season and climate. Quality is not affected; if anything, it’s a sign that you are using a genuine natural product!

All of our products, except the Replenishing Organic Lip Balm which contains beeswax, are vegan.

Only 3 of our products are unsafe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding; Invigorating Body Oil, Invigorating Body Lotion and Hebridean Sea Salt Scrub. This is due to the levels of absorption into the bloodstream and detoxing effects of the seaweed plus the essential oils, lemongrass and juniper. 

The substance you are seeing is seaweed and this is perfectly normal. A sprinkle of powdered Hebridean seaweed is added between each pour. The seaweed becomes apparent when the candle is lit and the wax becomes molten.
