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.

We’ve all become used to lots of words and phrases related to the pandemic this year, but one that’s especially unwelcome is ‘maskne’. As the name suggests, maskne is localized acne or spots, caused by the coverings we have to wear to keep us safe.

At ishga on the Isle of Lewis, we’ll have our usual longer nights and shorter days and enjoy bracing walks on the beach, with clean, fresh air and wide-open skies. Christmas in the Hebrides is, as you’d imagine, a community affair, usually celebrated in cosy homes with good neighbours. We may not experience the fun of our traditional celidh this year, or a Hogmany celebration with friends, but we’ll enjoy ourselves and count our blessings.
