About Us

Our mission

Our mission is to serve customers by creating high-quality, small-batch products and making them widely available both online and in person.  You may have even used our soaps in guest rooms at Point Pleasant Resort, on a charter yacht, or at a vacation rental.  You may have bought them at a local retailer throughout the Virgin Islands or even at the new double kiosk that JDNatlady's Creations has in the handmade products section in one of the pink buildings at Vendor's Plaza on the waterfront on St. Thomas. We also make it easy to shop online for our full range of products and get free shipping to the USA and US territories.

Hi, I am Aquannette Chinnery of JDNatlady's Creations.

Early start in science

At age 18, I graduated from the then-College of the Virgin Islands with a B.A. in Chemistry and entered a doctoral program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology ("MIT"). I have an M.S. in Biochemistry from MIT and worked for several years in science before transitioning to other careers.

Why I started making handmade products

I was a crafter since childhood, but started making my own hair products in 2008 when I went back to wearing my natural hairstyles. My science background came in very handy. In 2011, I founded JDNatlady's Creations, LLC, and that one hair care product was joined by a full line of soaps, hair care products, skin care products, and other handmade products. Something new is often being created, so check back often.

Let's continue on this journey together!
