ishga was born from a passion for beauty, science and seaweed.
A team of individuals from the Isle of Lewis, Malcolm a Scientist, Joanna his wife a beauty therapist and Martin a seaweed expert, set out to harness the natural antioxidants, healing and anti-ageing properties provided by the purest Scottish seaweed in the creation of a results driven skincare range
Malcolm created the Hebridean Seaweed Extract, this extract is the cornerstone of ishga. Used throughout the retail and professional range, the mineral-rich extract is blended with organic ingredients and essential oils to create each individual product.
The Anti-oxidant Marine Face Cream was the first product to be developed, this was carried out between the lab in the Hebrides and a professional luxury spa environment. Co-founder Leon Trayling and Spa Director of Blythswood Square used industry knowledge supported by a team of expert therapists to test and develop each product through the development stage.
All our seaweed is selected and hand harvested by the ishga team along with the spring water.
