At Carina, they have chosen a healthier approach to manufacturing self-care products. Since Carina's inception in 1972, replacing chemical and synthetic ingredients with natural and organic plant extracts, essences, and oils has been central to their focus and philosophy. They take great pride in using the highest quality ingredients possible in their formulations. A personal "hands-on" approach is taken when selecting and harvesting the proper tree essences, herbs, plants, fruits, flowers and vegetables. Throughout the year, ingredients such as alfalfa, chamomile, echinacea, nettle, red clover, along with a variety of botanical tree essences, are hand selected and harvested from different regions of the Pacific Northwest's forests and farms. With a distinct focus on holistic remedies, purity, craft, and quality, all Carina products are manufactured by hand on the North Shore of Vancouver, British Columbia.
