Carishea is a company we adore, they go above and beyond the concept of fair trade, changing the lives of families in Ghana and those right here in the UK. A unique social business that sources premium quality unrefined shea butter from the Bulisa district of Ghana. It is then shipped back to Greenock, Scotland where it is transformed by hand into luxurious skincare products by recovering addicts and ex-offenders. Profits are then returned and ploughed back into the communities in Ghana, providing them with employment, education and healthcare. The Ghanian women in the co-operative are paid living wage throughout the whole year, resulting in a reduction of child labour and trafficking in the region.
