This study confirms what we at Maya Chia have known all along. Chia oil has amazing benefits for the skin.
The Annals of Dermatology published a study conducted by researchers at the Korea University measuring the efficacy of topical products containing 4% chia oil on patients suffering from severe cases of dry, problematic, itchy skin. And the results were nothing short of remarkable.
Following two weeks of use, researchers noted an improvement in “skin hydration, skin barrier function, and reduced trans-epidermal water loss” as well as a decrease in itchy skin. See the results for yourself! What’s even more impressive is that Maya Chia uses 100% – not 4% – supercritical chia oil — so can you imagine how powerfully beneficial our chia oil is for your skin? Our customers describe it as “magic in a bottle” for a reason.
Chia: A Superior Super Food for Your Skin
Chia seeds are the best botanical source of skin-loving omega fatty acids found in nature. Chia oil has more omega-3 fatty acids than argan oil. Along with the unique potency of the Omega-3s, chia seed oil is brimming with extraordinarily high levels of anti-oxidants. In fact, the Nutritional Science Research Institute tested the nutritional value of chia seeds and noted that they have “the highest amount of antioxidants we have ever measured” and calls chia “one of the most powerful whole food antioxidants we know.” We agree, and the results of this study prove how effective chia oil is for the skin.
