ishga Marine Cleansing Balm is a naturally powerful face cleanser that melts away make up, stress and pollution, leaving skin thoroughly cleansed, refreshed and nourished.

ishga’s unique seaweed extract actively heals and regenerates through a powerful combination of natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The nourishing blend of bergamot, rose geranium and patchouli soothes, while shea butter and carnauba wax nourish, and sweet almond oil gently cleanses with balance.

Massage gently all over your face and neck to feel the grime of the day disappear into the balm. Remove any residue with a soft, damp cloth to reveal a revitalised, glowing complexion.

ishga Marine Cleansing Balm is true to the principles of vegan skincare and all our ingredients are organic certified by the Soil Association. Sustainable, cruelty-free skincare that is planet-friendly.

Key Active Ingredients and Benefits

Shea Butter

Shea butter is non-comedogenic 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.

Carnauba Wax

Moisturises, soothes, softens the skin, and is hypoallergenic. It's non-comedogenic, so it won't block pores. It allows our Marine Cleansing Balm to glide onto your skin smoothly.

Rapeseed oil

A carrier oil known for its moisturising and anti-inflammatory benefits. It also features anti-bacterial properties, making it ideal for treating skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It is calming for the skin and can help to reduce redness and irritation.

Almond Oil

An emollient excellent for hydration, to moisturise and smooth the skin. Improves skin texture and is ideal for those with sensitive skin. Lightweight and quick to absorb.

Castor oil

Castor oil contains antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and moisturising properties which are beneficial to all skin types.

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.

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.

Rose Geranium

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.
