The Story Behind Meeku
THE STORY BEHIND THE FOUNDING OF MEEKU
“As a teenager I suffered with horrible acne and eczema.”
Skin care for me was very important, especially when I hit my early teens. Through troubled times, and endless attempts to fix the constant battle that I endured at this time because of acne, and dry skin issues including eczema, I embarked on a natural path to help heal myself. Around the age of 14, I met a friend from India, his name was MEEKU, and he taught me how to incorporate fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables, to help heal my skin because he knew what I was doing at the time was not working for me. Within 8 weeks, my skin became clear, looked healthy, and it was evident that the natural path I took to help heal my skin was working.
Meeku is no longer with us, but he showed me a path that helped me in ways I can only be forever grateful for. So I named this company after him.
The Story of Shawn & MEEKU
“When I created MEEKU, I knew it had to be different, but make sense. So, I extended onto a technique I was taught when I was young which incorporates fresh fruits and vegetables. By using MEEKU products, you are providing your skin essential vitamins and minerals. From farm to skin.”

In fact, I rescued a scarlet macaw in 2015, and I named him Meeku. I had to hand feed Meeku for months before he was able to eat on his own. He was in good hands. He is now a happy bird and enjoys spending his time with the family, and getting spoiled with lots of good and nutritious fruits and vegetables.
And that is why you see the bird on my logo. Like Meeku, you will know you are in good hands. And like any bird that flies free in the sky, you will know that our company is free from harmful ingredients. My passion for natural ingredients, and animals, is the reason I bring you MEEKU. We are Always Fresh, Natural, and Vegan.
