Here at the Amazing Blog we are always in search of something just a little different… and we were interested to find Carishea, A natural skin and Body Care Company that ‘gives back.’ Part of Trade Right International, the Carishea brand was started in 2011 with two main aims: taking care of your body and helping the people who are behind the brand producing the products.

They produce three different ranges which are Shea Scot, Shea Joy and Shea Spice. The 100% natural body care range consists of Body scrubs, lip balms, soaps and Body Butter which are aromatherapy based. These products are sourced by Ghanaian women who harvest shea nuts to produce unrefined shea butter. Everything is then shipped back to their factory in Scotland where it is then handmade by their workers who are recruited from disadvantaged local communities. What we really like is that this brand gives a minimum of 50% profits which goes into a development programme for the communities in Ghana as well as Scotland.

Our favourite range was the Shea Joy which has a lovely hint of rose and bergamot. Combined with natural ingredients of Shea Butter and Lemon Grass, this range uplifts and rejuvenates your body in prep for the winter weather, as well as being the perfect present this Christmas.

Treat yourself or a loved one and click here to shop all the ranges and help give something back. All are at a very reasonable price ranging from £5 to £12.50.
