OUR MAYA MANIFESTO
Cultivate. Create. Innovate.
Our guiding principle is simple and unwavering: superior ingredients, when deftly formulated, act as super food for the skin. From the start, Maya Chia has carefully crafted a product line based on rigorous peer-reviewed clinical research. We rely 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 unmistakable results.
As our brand name suggests, Chia oil is the mainstay of all products in the Maya Chia line. Our patented 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 natural, organic and wild-crafted raw ingredients to formulate exceptional formulations that continually push the boundaries of clean beauty innovation.
We don't just stop at Chia seeds. 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 (65x stronger than Vitamin C), to the beauty market. Chia, Astaxanthin, Sweet Lupine Seed Extract, Sake are just a few staples in our formulas that work to create category-defying skincare.
Maya Chia products are formulated, produced and perfected in our Charleston, South Carolina 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 uses a patented process to extract the oil called 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 18 month shelf life.
Maya Chia skin care products use the highest quality natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients from conscious growers across the world. Our products are never formulated with parabens, pthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, or SLSs. All of our products are made in the USA from domestic and imported components.
