Cultivate. Create. Innovate.

Our guiding principle is simple and unwavering: superior ingredients (backed by clinical studies), when deftly formulated, act as super food for the skin. From the start, Maya Chia has relied on science, not slick marketing, to create products that work. Each of our super ingredients brings something special to the mix, and together, they achieve results.

As our brand name suggests, Chia oil is the mainstay of all products in the Maya Chia line. Our supercritical extraction method for Chia oil magnifies this product's potency, allowing us to deliver the purest and most effective form of this powerhouse ingredient.

Nothing excites us more than sourcing raw materials from every corner of the globe. Maya Chia uses the highest quality ingredients to create innovative formulations that continually push the boundaries of clean beauty.

So what does clean beauty mean to us? While there is no industry standard definition for what constitutes clean beauty, our products are never formulated with parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGS or SLSs.

We strive every step of the way to ensure that our skin care products use the highest-quality ingredients from the most reputable sources across the world.

While Chia is in our name, we don't just stop at this super food. We apply the same rigor in finding the highest-performing ingredients to every aspect of our formulations.

For example, Maya Chia was one of the first skincare brands to bring the powerhouse ingredient, Astaxanthin, to the beauty market. The same is true for Azelaic Acid, Tranexamic Acid and more. These are just a few staples in our formulas that work to create category-defying skin and haircare.

Maya Chia products are formulated, produced and perfected in our Charleston, South Carolina solar-powered laboratories by our founder, Susanne Norwitz. With every product we sell, Maya Chia gives back to the people of Central America as the Corporate Sponsor of Adopt-a-Village Guatemala.


Maya Chia skin care products use the highest quality natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients from conscious growers across the world. What does clean beauty mean to us? Our products are never formulated with parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, or SLSs. All of our products are made in the USA from domestic and imported components.

Maya Chia deploys a process to extract the chia seed oil known as supercritical extraction. The gentle oxygen-free, solvent-free process results in oil with a total absence of chemical residues and impurities, and one that most closely mirrors the chemical profile of the plant. What that means for our customer is that they get the best, purest, most stable, effective, and potent chia oil in the market with up to an 24 month shelf life.
