Meet Ying Jie

ChubbyCo. curates simple and sensorial aromatherapeutic self-care products, made for the modern go-getter. Our products are handcrafted locally using only 100% pure essential oils to heal, soothe and uplift the senses.

What drove you to kickstart on your business?

There were numerous times I experienced anxiety in the workplace - which I felt helpless then as I was a go-getter by nature. I did still want to achieve my goals and build the career of my dreams. Thus, I wanted to find a way to combat it instead which was when I discovered my love for aromatherapy.


What is the story behind your brand name?

The feeling I get from diffusing these therapeutic oils is something I want to share, and I've always wanted to build a business of my own and so, here we are with ChubbyCo.!


What are some of the main challenges you face in your project?

Bootstrapped since the start, growth is always a challenge for us. Thus, we are always looking for creative ways to expand our reach to more people who may benefit from our products.


Are there any new / upcoming products or projects we can anticipate?

We are in the midst of curating a line of aromatherapy essentials. If you are an aromatherapy lover, keep a lookout because this would be our biggest range ever!


What are the 3 words you associate your brand with?

Simple, happy, easy.


What would you say sets you apart from other brands?

ChubbyCo. products are free from parabens, sulfates and phthalates which gives our customers a piece of mind. Additionally, we want our customers to feel a sense of lightness and contentment when they see our happy colours and uplifting aromas - which I believe is a new feeling we are trying to evoke compared to the other brands in this industry.


What motivates you to keep doing what you do?

Humans associate experiences with scents - in my case, I associated the feeling of calmness with lavender essential oils which was therapeutic for me in helping me get over the micro-anxieties I experience on a daily basis. My essential oils collection by my bedside grew slowly and soon enough, I had a plethora of different essential oils that I diffuse for different purposes!
