ishga, it’s our little secret.

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.

ishga is derived from the Gaelic for water. The Hebridean islands speak an ancient language too. The ocean is their 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.

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.

Across the world, ishga’s luxurious, regenerative, vegan skincare products are transforming more and more people’s skin, to make them look healthier, younger and more radiant.

Everyone will notice the change in yours - trust ishga, it’s our little secret.

At ishga, we use four types of seaweed in our organic skincare; Fucus Serratus, Fucus Vesculosis, Pelvetia Canaliculata, and Ascophyllum Nodosum. The two types that go into the majority of our products are Fucus Serratus and Fucus Vesculosis, both of which hold powerful benefits for our skin.

We may think of beauty and skincare as a fairly modern development that has only happened in the last 100 years or so. However, if you go far enough back, you can see that caring for our skin has been around for a long time.
