Our founders, Amadeus and Sheila, met because of 1 problem: sensitive skin issues. Having lived abroad, Amadeus spent 11 years in Canada where he finished his doctoral degree in the field of biotechnology while Sheila, spent a few years in Europe and the US to pursue her interest in design. Having both experienced sensitive skin issues in developed countries and finding the right natural products to alleviate these issues, posed a thought to further develop coming back to their hometown.
Noticing that most personal care brands available in Indonesia used mostly harmful chemicals, often causing rashes and dry skin issues, the two partnered to start Cahaya Naturals in 2018. Their mission, to create a range of truly clean, gentle, and Science-based natural care solutions for sensitive skin.
In addition, inspired by the lush botanical riches of Indonesia, Cahaya Naturals also aims to introduce the wonders of Indonesia’s local botanical ingredients to the world.
