There’s a saying good luck is a product of preparation.
Maya Chia’s supercritical chia oil has become an editor and consumer favorite because we’ve refused to settle for anything but the finest ingredients and the best way to prepare those ingredients. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
We searched for the best seeds and we’re not willing to use anything but the best, most gentle way to turn those seeds into oil, preserving all of the inherent natural goodness of the chia seed. We should mention that making oil out of chia seeds is no small feat because of the nature and size of this tiny seed.
Our supercritical extraction method is a patented and cutting-edge way to produce highly pure plant extracts. You’ll find that many essential oils are extracted using steam distillation, cold pressing or chemical solvents such as hexane, heptane or ethanol.
The supercritical extraction process, however, produces superior oil and consistent high quality, and is far more potent than those older extraction methods. In supercritical extraction, the oil has not been altered by high heat and contains more of the inherent chemical makeup found in the plants than other methods – such as cold pressing.
The supercritical extraction process also eliminates the need for potentially harmful solvents like hexane that is often used in the manufacture of oils, and therefore, we avoid unnecessary environmental pollution and harmful solvents affecting the body.
Supercritical extraction without oxygen has many advantages, such as gentle process conditions. The supercritical chia oil is free of solvent residues and needs no refinement. This guarantees a genuine and high-grade product every time. One that Maya Chia Beauty is proud to offer our customers.
