Caring about people and a fairer production chain

The cosmetics lab has been active since 2001 within the women’s prison of the Giudecca. It currently has three workers who are coordinated by an operator from the Cooperative and under the supervision of a chemist as Manager of product safety control.

The prisoners who are interested in this course of work can take a professional training course that ultimately leads them to job placement in case of turn over and according to development plans.
