Hi, I’m Ben and I launched The Isle of Skye Seaweed Company in 2017, all our products are natural seaweed skincare.
My passion for the marine environment started from a young age growing up on Skye surrounded by the sea, and with a scallop diver for a dad the house was always full of different sorts of seafood, amazing finds from the seabed and books about exploring the sea. After leaving School I went to Edinburgh and gained a degree in “Sustainable Environmental Management” from the University of Edinburgh. But the call of Skye was too strong and I returned home after my studies.
Before launching The Isle of Skye Seaweed Company I spent a few years developing different concepts including food-based seaweed products, until I realised the amazing possibilities of seaweed-based skincare products. From there on out I spent the next couple of years working on various product prototypes and gaining a seaweed harvesting licence from Crown Estate Scotland.
The business now has a small but mighty range of natural seaweed skincare products hand made here on the Isle of Skye to our own formulas focusing on sustainability and the environment.
