Chikyu has come a long way since opening an ETSY shop in late November 2013. After having over 3,000+ sales and over 1300 reviews with an overall 5 star rating, I decided to launch a stand alone website where you can order your favorite products, read up on latest skin care news and more importantly, where I can better serve you.
After working in the health and fitness industry for many years, I found most people I came across did not understand that what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put into your body. Growing up with a Japanese mother blessed with porcelain skin and well versed in Enthobotany, I was taught at an early age the importance of maintaining the health of ones skin through holistic means just as my ancestors did. This meant not only eating a healthy diet, but focusing on longevity by using earths natural resources as opposed to harmful, chemically processed products which flood our market today. My aim in creating CHIKYU (Japanese for Earth), is to encourage people to use natural products derived from our beautiful earth that are functional and luxurious without compromising the skin with toxic chemicals. Because CHIKYU refrains from using harmful additives or preservatives and NEVER tests on earth’s beautiful creatures (animals), products are made to order and retain a relatively short shelf life ranging from 3 to 6 months.
It is important to also note; good skin care exceeds far beyond that of great products. CHIKYU 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, additives, sugars, etc.), drink plenty of water, exercise, get plenty of rest and protect your skin from the sun! You may have the greatest skincare regime, but it will hardly make a difference if you don’t promote a healthy lifestyle. Remember, your skin reflects that which you have lived, so it is important that you treat it as a whole body experience. I hope each of you will not only enjoy CHIKYU, but come away feeling more beautiful than you already are! Enjoy! Namaste’
What Chikyu’s Customers Are Saying:
“I just received my order and the body butter smells so amazing. I cant wait to try it. I am in love with the face wash and sea mist face toner. I swear it is the best. I really enjoy the last sample I received and will be ordering again real soon. I just love how you package everything and I really love your products:)” Amanda T (May 7,2016)
“Lynn took so much time with me to pick the products I was in need of. I received everything today, many samples to buy before buying the full size. The order was beautifully packaged as well. I used it for the first time tonight!” – Jan Nanamx (March 3, 2016)
Okay.. I’m ready for the review. I used it for two weeks and would be able to say.. my skin noticeably changed: brighter and smoother! I also love the fresh smell that makes me have good morning face wash time :D” – Isshana (March 4, 2016)
“Chikyu always surpasses my expectation. I broke the bottle of the cleanser and made another purchase, but Lynn very kindheartedly refunded me the cost. How unexpected and generous! I’m beyond moved. And as always, all the package is wrapped neatly like a folded kimono 🙂 Everything is always of highest-quality and high-performing products. I’ll always be a big fan! Thank you so much for making such wonderful products and providing top-notch customer service, all consistently! ” – pinkliciouz (March 11, 2016)
“Smells amazing, feels amazing and is made from all nourishing and healthy natural ingredients. I love everything from this shop! Also, she wraps everything up in such a beautiful way and often includes free samples and a personal note. I’m so glad I found this!” – pearlylee (February 29, 2016)
“I love love CHIKYU face washes! I like to keep a collection of the travel sizes because they are obviously perfect for travel, and I enjoy switching it up between the different formulas. This one is one of my favorites because it feels like you’re getting a deep clean without any dryness. I’ve tried both with and without the jojoba beads and I think I prefer it with, for the extra gentle exfoliating factor. Thank you as always!” – lilbex93 (January 21, 2016)
“I’m hooked. This product is fabulous. In just a few days, I’ve noticed a considerable difference in my skin. It looks more smooth and less blotchy. I’ve tried everything I could find in the beauty aisle with no improvement, and now I see that natural and organic is the way to go. I will be reordering!” – Stephanie Welshenbaugh (January 5, 2016)
