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 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 and loving the skin you're in!

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'

Returns and exchange details
At CHIKYU, our goal is to have happy, healthy customers who are satisfied with their purchases. If a product isn't working up to your standards, then allow us to recommend a different one that may better suit your skin's needs or, we will be happy to custom make one for you addressing your skins needs. If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase from CHIKYU, please feel free to contact us at: chikyuskincare [!at] gmail.com so we may come to a resolution. Knowledge is power, the more you know about your skin type, the better we can assist you.

Because CHIKYU products are natural, freshly made and contain no additives or preservatives, we cannot offer refunds for products once they have shipped, or in your possession. In the event your product(s) arrived damaged, please contact CHIKYU immediately upon receipt so we may discuss other options.
Payment
CHIKYU accepts all major credit cards as well as Paypal. Payment for your order includes any applicable sales tax, handling and/or shipping charges and must be received before an order is processed. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account before your products are shipped. You may cancel your order anytime during the payment process or within 3 hours of placing your order. However, once the payment has gone through and the order has shipped, you will not be able to cancel the order or, be refunded.
Shipping
Even though CHIKYU makes products to order, we do strive to get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Therefore, orders will be shipped between 2-4 business days upon placing your order. Should for any reason there be a delay in shipment, Chikyu will promptly notify the buyer.

♻️Because CHIKYU continually strives to be more environmentally sustainable, we are now limiting unnecessary individual product packaging to lessen the impact on the environment. In our ongoing efforts to support sustainability and because we care, each order is mindfully packaged using eco friendly materials. With this in mind, please reuse, repurpose or recycle each product container as well as all shipping material which may also be composted i.e., the peanuts are made from natural vegetable starch which quickly dissolves on contact with water thereby making it completely biodegradable and environmentally friendly. Thank you in advance and please spread the love for our planet by reusing or recycling!

DOMESTIC SHIPPING:
CHIKYU normally ships USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail. However, depending on the item(s) ordered and if the weight is under 16 ounces, USPS 1st Class may be more feasible. Shipping costs for each product listed in CHIKYU's shop are set based on the weight of full size products, package measurements and the cost per USPS. Should however, the cost of shipping be less than what you've paid (especially if your package is shipped via 1st Class Mail), YOU WILL be promptly reimbursed for shipping overages upon shipping your package. In addition, you will receive a separate refund confirmation via Etsy.

Because CHIKYU knows how it feels to be in limbo after you've placed an order, you can be sure that once your order has shipped, you will be provided with a notification along with a tracking number so you may monitor its journey from sunny California right to your designated place of arrival.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
