ishga was born from a passion for beauty, science and seaweed. Malcolm a scientist, his wife Joanna, a beauty therapist and Martin, a seaweed expert, set out together to create results driven organic skin care, harnessing the natural skin antioxidants, healing, and anti-ageing properties of pure, Scottish seaweed.

Malcolm created our Hebridean Seaweed extract, which is the cornerstone of the science behind ishga’s natural organic skin care. This mineral rich extract is blended with organic ingredients and beautiful essential oils to create our award-winning products.

Our Anti-oxidant Marine Face Cream was the first product to be developed through collaboration between our laboratory on Lewis and our first spa partner, Blythswood Square, in Glasgow. Leon Trayling, spa director at Blythswood Square, and co-founder of ishga, has since helped test every product with a team of expert therapists.
