KAHINA IS DONATING $1 FOR EVERY MOISTURE MASK PURCHASED THROUGH 2017 TO OLE HEALTH We believe in giving back to the people who work to provide the raw ingredients at the heart of our line. Historically, this has meant aiding the women of Morocco who do the hard work of extracting our argan oil. To launch of our Moisture Mask, which contains resveratrol from red wine grapes, we have decided to donate to a cause closer to home. Specifically my home in the Napa Valley, Vine Hill Ranch. With the reversal of Obamacare and stricter immigration policies under the current administration, the Napa Valley, with its reliance on migrant workers to serve its core industries (farming and hospitality), finds itself at the center of issues surrounding affordable healthcare and immigration.
- Immigrants make up 23% of the Napa Valley population
- Immigrants make up 33% of the workforce in the Napa Valley
- 73% of immigrants in the workforce work in agriculture
- Only 30 percent of Napa’s immigrants become citizens
- More than 300 people have been deported from Napa County since 2010 under the past federal immigration policy; 73 percent had a misdemeanor conviction or no conviction. Obviously, this number is expected to grow under the Trump administration.
- Among adults, 46 percent of immigrants have less education than high school; 60 percent are not proficient in English.
