About

The name ishga (ish-ga) is derived from the Gaelic word for water.  The ocean is at the heart of ishga, and our unique seaweed extract is at the core of our award-winning organic skincare range. Since day one back in 2013, we’ve been sustainably harvesting the wonder ingredient on the shores of our home of the Isle of Lewis. We allow nature to replenish her stocks by rotating our harvesting locations and only taking what we need.  

Our team carries out weekly trips to freshly collect four types of seaweed that are vital to our results-driven skincare. We owe our powerful hydrating, firming, healing, and skin protecting formulas to Fucus Serratus Seaweed, Pelvetia Canaliculata Seaweed, Ascophyllum Nodosum Seaweed and Fucus Vesiculosis Seaweed; each containing its own unique skin enhancing properties. When our seaweed extract is combined with high-performing active skincare ingredients, it becomes a transformative must-have ingredient for your skincare shelf.  

We do not use tap water in any of our products, instead we use locally sourced Hebridean healing spring well water and pure, unpolluted seawater from our pristine island shorelines, given the highest quality classification available by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency. Our spring water is sourced from a remote location among the hills and lochs on The Isle of Lewis. The water contains a potent mineral content, including potassium, magnesium and sulphates. We carefully take only what we need from the spring to ensure our process is as sustainable as possible. Experience results-driven skincare derived from the ocean, backed by science.
