Today is Get Lippy day 💋⁠

Aside from raising much needed funds, the charity also helps to raise awareness on the topic, encouraging people to seek medical help and not dismiss symptoms too easily.⁠

The Eve Appeal published new survey findings (Yougov) to launch its Get Lippy campaign. It was found that:⁠

· Less than half of women (45%) would go to the doctors immediately if they had a postmenopausal bleed.⁠
· Under half (44%) would go to the doctor if they bled between periods.⁠
· Only 35% would go to the doctor immediately if they experienced pain during sex.⁠
· Under half of women would act on 'red-flag symptoms' a bleed after the menopause or between periods (45 and 44% respectively).⁠

We will be donating 10% of the sales from our Hydra+ Marine Cream from the month of May. All money raised will go towards much needed research💜⁠

May chang has been used in China for thousands of years, for muscle aches and pains, headaches, digestive problems and asthma. It was not until after the 1950’s that it became available in the Western world, being used in soaps and fragrances. ⁠

Today, it is widely used in skincare products due to its multiple benefits such as mild astringent properties, which makes it ideal for those with oily and acne-prone skin. ⁠

This May, we are Getting Lippy with gynaecological cancer charity 💋. Their vision is bold and ambitious, but simple at its core: to make gynaecological cancers a thing of the past.

We are proud to support any campaign that can highlight important health issues and we want to help raise money to support life saving research. Throughout that month of May when you purchase a Hydra+ Marine Cream, 10% of the sale will be donated to the campaign.⁠

Funds raised will go towards life-saving research into the prevention and earlier diagnosis of all five gynaecological cancers; womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal. Every year the charity joins with some of the UK’s leading health and beauty brands and we are thrilled to be amongst those for this year’s campaign.

ishga, it’s our little secret.

On a faraway isle, near the north west coast of Scotland, we’re using an ancient secret to create award-winning natural skincare, using the life-giving power of the sea to restore the skin and the soul.

This paradise is a world of myth and legend, and an age from stress and strain, where clear Hebridean waters cleanse golden sands to wash problems away.ishga is derived from the Gaelic for water. The Hebridean islands speak an ancient language too. The ocean is their heartbeat, a source of infinite abundance with the ability to heal and rejuvenate.

Hand-harvested seaweed yields vitamins; minerals; amino acids; anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids, and we combine them with local spring water to harness over 86 vitamins and minerals.Our scientists use a bespoke, natural process to create a truly unique range of organic skincare with the most remarkable anti-aging, hydrating and skin-renewing properties. Light base oils such as sweet almond or jojoba, essential oils like rose geranium or lemongrass, and nourishing moisturisers including cocoa and shea butters, glide blissfully on and balance, nourish, smooth and repair.

Across the world, ishga’s luxurious, regenerative, vegan skincare products are transforming more and more people’s skin, to make them look healthier, younger and more radiant.
