About Us & More

About us:

When I started creating natural skin care products, it wasn’t because I was looking for a hobby or an income stream. It was out of simple necessity.

My son has eczema and I spent hundreds of dollars on skincare products to try and treat his skin. They weren’t working, and I was also concerned with the ingredients in these products. As a result, I started out making all natural body butter, progressed to soap making, and the rest is history.

I quickly realized that I wasn’t the only person looking for high-quality, natural skin care products, so I founded Metanoia By Chikaya  with the push and support of family and friends.

Metanoia By Chikaya also helped on my journey for self discovery. I was being creative while finding a craft that fulfilled my sons needs, my interests and was something I enjoyed doing.

Warm weather Disclaimer:

During very warm weather, products may soften or even melt in transit as they sit in warm mail trucks, mailboxes or on front porches. Because our products are made with natural oils and butters, slight seepage is normal however we have done everything we can to minimize this. We do not use synthetic stabilizers or waxes. We do not formulate our light and fluffy body butters with any beeswax. As a result, our delicate natural products packaged in glass jars and metal tins are sensitive to temperature changes. Because our whipped butters are handmade, there is some variation in volume between batches. Some batches do not whip as high as others, and thus do not fill the container all the way to the top. This is rare, but it does not mean that you have received less, as the weight of product placed into each container remains consistent. We do not reship melted product because the butter is still effective and usable, even in a melted state.

Before opening:

Whipped Butters: Place it in the refrigerator. The melting will not affect the quality of the whipped butter as a great moisturizer, but the whipped consistency will change. It will become more like a body balm.

Whipping adds tiny air bubbles (just like whipping cream) that increase the size, lighten the density and change the texture, making the butter light and fluffy. If a whipped product melts, the air bubbles are collapsed, so the volume is decreased. So although the jar was filled to the top, if the butter melts, there will be less volume in the container. The container may actually look half full.

We have had customers scoop out the butter and whip it back up with an electric whisk beater. The butter has to be very cold for this to work.

Sugar Scrubs: Place in the refrigerator. As it begins to harden up--give it a stir and place it back in the refrigerator until firm. Again because it is a whipped product, the container will have less volume as the whipped butters melt.
