The Advanced Eye Response Complex by Maya Chia is an innovative formulation that encourages the skin’s own response mechanisms to help restore the appearance of the delicate skin around the eye area, improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles, firmness, dark circles and puffiness. Encapsulated Retinol, peptides, algae, amino acids, Ayurvedic extracts and vitamins all work together to feed your skin the foundational elements of what it needs.

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 remains 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.
Like a lot of us I've tried just about every eye treatment in the world and never thought they made much of a real change other than smoothing out lines while wearing them. This is the one that is different. It is making a significant change in the skin around my eyes that is significant and sustained. It is thick but absorbs quickly. I'm not crazy about the container because you can't see how much is left but I know it keeps the product clean and fresh. I have been very impressed with all of the Maya Chia products that I've tried.
If you love an ultra-rich eye cream, and love Maya Chia products like I do, you'll love this. I love how all of their products really deliver. This is no different. I'm 49 and I feel like this eye cream really works overnight to soften lines. I would recommend it. Very very nourishing.
