ABOUT THIS BRANDThrough her lifelong fascination with the rituals of the Mayan culture, Susanne Norwitz, Founder of Maya Chia, discovered that chia seeds, a Mayan superfood, produced the most omega and nutritionally dense oil in nature, clinically proven to increase skin hydration, improve skin barrier function and reduce transepidermal water loss. Motivated to bring this Mayan gift to the masses, she delved into her own research to identify the purest method for extraction to ensure the integrity of the oil remain as close to its original plant-based form as possible. It is the patented, supercritical extraction method of chia seed oil that makes Maya Chia a star. Maya Chia’s mission is to support beautiful skin powered by nature’s most active botanicals. Each beauty product in the line boasts a super concentration of active ingredients that strike the perfect balance of omegas, antioxidants and minerals to deeply moisturize and nourish skin. Susanne now sources all of her chia seed oil from sustainable cooperatives in Central and South America and donates a portion of the company’s net profits to organizations that build farms and schools in Mayan communities.
I have been using this after cleansing for almost 2 years daily. While it has not changed the tone or appearance of my skin, it does leave my skin feeling hydrated and if for some reason I don't use this, my skin feels tight and dry. I love this product and it's safe to say I will never be without it!
Feels very nourishing.
