Seaweed is one of the world’s most naturally abundant sources of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids.
Used throughout the ishga skincare range our seaweed extracts and powders deliver many anti-aging, hydrating and skin renewing properties.
Hebridean seaweed extract is the cornerstone of ishga; it’s extracted directly into Hebridean spring water using a low temperature extraction process, which protects the beneficial compounds and enzymes. Rich in Polyphenols the extract has been independently tested by the European Commission FP7 project under the supervision of the University of Reading, which revealed it to be one of the most potent of those tested.
These Anti-oxidant Polyphenols provide protection against environmental damage to the skin by neutralising free radicals. Used throughout the retail and professional range, the mineral-rich extract is blended with organic ingredients and essential oils to create each individual product.
Cucumber extract, Macadamia, Jojoba Oil, Thistle Oil, Hebridean Sea Salt and Aloe Vera are some of the many natural ingredients used which nourish, hydrate and protect the skin.
In addition to Hebridean seawater, ishga utilises mineral spring water sourced from a healing spring on the Isle of Lewis. Excellent for skincare it contains a potent mineral content including Potassium, Magnesium and Sulphates.
