“Lovely. Feels very nourishing.”

- Amy D.

A true confidence booster for skin, Maya Chia The Optimist is carefully crafted to offer a hit of valuable moisture while improving the look and feel of skin. Made with aloe, a lightweight moisturizer suitable for all skin types, and astaxanthin to promote a feeling of improved elasticity and smoothness. Chia lends a calming sensation and boosts the appearance of glow. Licorice and neroli are added to bestow a look of balance and even skin tone, while ylang ylang visibly tones and clears the skin for a plumped and perky appearance.


Mist onto a cotton pad or directly onto clean skin for a feeling of hydration and rejuvenation, and to ramp up the appearance of glow.

Through 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.

Feels very nourishing.

Great Moisture

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!
