As skincare lovers, it's so easy to accumulate many different products over time (our skincare shelves are fully stocked!). It's important to keep track of when it's time to replace them, ensuring that your skincare routine is not hampered by poorly performing expired lotions and serums.
This month we caught up with our Head of Training and Account Support, Natalie Rodgers. She is one of our longest serving team members, joining near the beginning, almost ten years ago! Learn about Natalie's journey with ishga and where it all started.
We're thrilled to be working with our team in Japan to share our little pots of Hebridean goodness with the world, as our latest international launch takes place at the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo Marunouchi, a luxury urban hideaway in the centre of Tokyo.
While there are many skincare terminologies and ingredients out there (we could probably create a book!), there are some that are pretty useful to know to make sure you’re applying the right products for your skin type. It can be overwhelming when they are so many different ingredients to know what's best for you and your skin. Below, we run through a brief summary of the key ingredients we use and general skin terminologies to help you make informed decisions on your journey to your very best skin!
SLS stands for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate while SLES stands for Sodium Laureth Sulfate. If you already shop consciously then you may be familiar with these sulfates and what they do, but let’s dive deeper into the differences between the two and what they mean for your skin.
As the seasons change, it’s important that your skin is receiving everything it needs in terms of protection, nourishment and hydration. There are many factors that can have an impact on your skin, such as temperature, UV exposure and pollution that vary throughout the year.
This month we caught up with one of the Co-founders and Directors of ishga, Malcolm Macrae. Learn about how his science background, marriage and friendships led to the creation of the luxury skincare brand we know today.
The current state of planet Earth’s environment has been an important topic for debate for many years now. Our oceans are littered with plastics that have no place to be there, affecting marine life and the fragile ecosystems in which they live.
As more of us become aware of the importance of protecting our oceans and living sustainably, it is now up to everyone, including brands big and small, to start making positive changes that aim to have a long-lasting impact on restoring the health of our oceans.
Getting older is inevitable, but, as women, there’s the added challenge of navigating the dreaded menopause. Starting (on average) in our 40’s, and carrying on into our early 50’s, it can be an extremely challenging time.
At ishga, we’re immensely proud to share a little bit of Hebridean magic with skincare lovers across the world. Natural really is best, and our product range is not only kind to your skin, it also keeps it healthy, youthful and radiant, thanks to the abundance of antioxidants and other wonderful, natural ingredients.
As consumers, we’re constantly bombarded by clever advertising that promises to transform us, with some even claiming to ‘fix’ overnight! An attractive price tag might catch our eye, and it can be tempting to try new trends as they come and go, but we believe investing in high-quality natural formulas and maintaining a consistent skincare routine really is the only way to achieve long-term, effective results.
