Hebridean Islands, Scotland

The name ishga is derived from the Gaelic word for water.

The pure, clean waters of the Hebridean Islands off the north west coast of Scotland is home to ishga, and where we sustainably hand harvest the seaweed that's at the heart of our skincare. Hebridean seaweed contains natural antioxidants with properties which transform and protect the skin.

Why is ishga unique?

The Seaweed extract that forms the basis of the ishga skincare range is one of a kind. It is produced by combining hand harvested Hebridean seaweed with natural spring water using a low temperature extraction process giving an extract that is as pure as nature. We have agreements with the Crown Estate and local private estates to harvest a number of different seaweed species throughout Lewis and Harris, and we work closely with Scottish Natural Heritage to ensure all harvesting is carried out sustainably.
