Linus arrived at the Center for Great Apes in 2006 along with the orangutan, Kiki, and chimpanzee, Mickey. All three apes were sold to a private owner when they were infants, but had grown too large to handle so were kept in separate cages in a garage for most of their lives. When Linus had suddenly started to tear apart his tiny cage in order to escape, his owner asked the sanctuary to take all three great apes immediately.
Due to years of lack of exposure to sunlight in his garage cage and limited space for movement and exercise, Linus could barely walk, trembling constantly and becoming winded from the slightest exertion. His hair was matted with pounds of feces, and it took caregivers many months of effort to groom him through the mesh and cut out the mats. Yet Linus was patient and gentle.
When Linus stepped outside into the sunshine for the first time at the sanctuary, he turned his huge face up to the sky and stared. As he gained more space outdoors, he learned to lumber around his enclosure, make his way into the chute system, and eventually climb to the top of his dome. Linus is huge. His head and flanges (cheek pads) are nearly twice the size as our other adult males Sammy, Pongo, Radcliffe, and Chuckie. Linus’ hair, now clean and shiny, frames his cheek pads and serene face. He is fascinated by textures, particularly fabrics, and he also hordes paper products such as cardboard boxes, paper bags, and shredded office documents. Every time he moves indoors or outside, he carefully gathers up all his blankets, boxes, and bags and carries them with him wherever he goes.
Linus is very shy but as he gains more confidence each day, he always makes the effort to come over to see the staff and volunteers when they stop by his habitat. Even though Linus and Kiki had both been kept in the same garage, they were never together or had interacted with each other. Soon after they completed their quarantine period at the Center, their introductions began. After many months of carefully monitored sessions of play and interaction, the very gentle Linus and the extroverted and friendly Kiki are fulltime companions and get along well together.
Do you have any fragrance-free products?
All skincare products smell bad in the lab, because they are loaded with chemicals and raw ingredients. With this, manufacturers do scent them. They are not scented to make them smell good, but just scented to make them NOT smell bad. Chandler Farm chooses natural essential oils. Chandler Farm recommends their Natural Lavender to people who prefer a “low scent” to their products.
Do you use filtered water in your products?
The water used in Chandler Farm's products goes through a softener, purification, UV and filtration process. It is tested daily, and a sample is sent out weekly to confirm that the process is working.
Why does Chandler Farm support The Phelps Great Ape Foundation?
The Phelps Great Ape Foundation (PGAF) is committed to the long term survival of the Orangutan in the wild. The PGAF dedicates 100% of their donations to projects focused around education of the Orangutan crisis, and placement of displaced Orangutans. Chandler Farm is passionate about their mission.
Why is organic bodycare so important?
Your skin is your largest organ. Often we are so concerned with what we are putting in our bodies, that we don't think about what we are putting on our bodies. Just as fatty and processed foods have negative impacts on our internal organs, harsh ingredient-filled bodycare products have negative impacts on our skin.
What is the deal with palm oil?
Palm Oil is found in Food, Bio-Fuel, and Bodycare Products. Palm oil is harvested in Indonesia. The clearcutting of these Indonesian rainforests displaces all living things within the ecosystem. Harvesting of Palm Oil is also followed up by the burning of the remnants left after the clear cut. This burning releases more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than fossil fuels.
