About

Simplicity is Purity - Earth's Mindful Skincare

After working in the health and fitness industry for many years, I found most people I came across were not aware that what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put into your body. Growing up with a Japanese mother who was well versed in ethnobotany and blessed with porcelain skin, I was taught at an early age the importance of maintaining ones skin through holistic means just as my ancestors did. This meant not only eating a healthy diet, but also using our earth's natural resources as opposed to harmful, chemically processed products which flood our market today (from low to high end beauty brands). My aim in creating CHIKYU (Japanese for earth), is to encourage people to focus on longevity by using pure and natural products derived from mother earth, that are functional, luxurious and simple, without compromising the skin with toxic chemicals. Having a fancy container, label or strategic marketing gimmicks can certainly sell a product, but if the product contains man made synthetics or harmful chemicals, it can wreak havoc on your skin and ultimately your body. I strongly believe experiencing natural, effective plant based organic beauty should be an everyday, affordable luxury for everyone!

The philosophy behind creating CHIKYU is to provide consumers with simple and effective ingredients with purity in mind. This means starting with the basics by using what our beautiful earth has to offer without compromising it, or you. With this in mind, CHIKYU has gone back to the beginning of time to bring the foundation of skin care to the surface of our world today. I view skin the same way an organic gardener views his/her soil; the skin of our great earth. By this I mean; what a gardener puts into the soil affects the growth and stability of what a gardener is attempting to produce. This very same concept applies to the care of our skin. Each of my highly effective, artisanal products are made to order, handcrafted with soul, passion and in small increments without the use of harmful agents, artificial dyes, agents, or toxic preservatives and NEVER tested on earth's beautiful creatures (animals). CHIKYU products are made to order and retain a relatively short shelf life ranging from 3 to 6 months.

At CHIKYU, I not only emphasize the importance of maintaining ones skin, but I am a strong advocate in promoting overall wellness with ones longevity in mind. Therefore, I strive to sustain the highest standards in promoting pureness, while advocating beauty as a whole body experience. Simplicity is purity, and I wish for everyone to relish what earth intended for you to experience all along and to come away feeling beautiful when using CHIKYU!

NOTE: Good skin care exceeds far beyond that of great products. CHIKYU also encourages consumers to examine their lifestyle from the inside out. This means making every attempt to get plenty of exercise, eat a healthy "whole" diet (free from preservatives, processing, additives, sugars, etc.), drink plenty of water, exercise, get plenty of rest and protect your skin from the sun! As much as I love the outdoors and being at one with nature, I'm never without sunscreen or a hat! Remember, you may have the greatest skincare regime, but it will hardly make a difference if you don't promote a healthy lifestyle. Your skin reflects that which you have lived, so it's important you treat it as a whole body experience and be kind to it! Enjoy and love the skin that you're in! Namaste'
