Carishea believe in paying fair wages and return profits into valuable education and community development programmes, buying Carishea products make a difference to all.
The Coconut oil is sourced from Liberia & taken to Ghana by road, it is shipped, along with the Shea butter, to Trade Right International’s Scottish facility, a ‘holistic social business’, where people excluded from the labour market are employed & empowered to handcraft the products into luxury soap & cosmetics. As well as this, Ghanaian women working with Trade Right International can produce up to one bucket of Shea nuts in just over five days which could be worth £0.10 per kilo in the market.
