Not all face and body oil is the same. 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. Just as there’s wild variation in the quality of wine, not all chia oil is created equal. There are many factors that go into making the perfect glass of wine — such as the region where the grapes are grown, how the grapes are harvested, and how the wine is extracted from the grapes, the list goes on and on. Similarly, harvesting and processing chia oil to obtain the highest quality and maximum potency is extremely complex.
Our seeds originate from select regions reputed for growing the highest quality chia, and we’re meticulous about the growers with whom we work. Securing the highest quality chia seeds and supporting the growers who grow them is very important to us. Getting the organic certification can be highly cost prohibitive for many of the small growers we work with. Therefore, we made the conscious decision to work with the growers and not the companies issuing what can be considered costly certifications. Having said that, we know that by its very nature chia is an extremely hearty plant and that our growers do not use pesticides. As an added measure, we take the extra step to screen for pesticides.
The highest quality natural, organic and wildcrafted
ingredients from conscious growers across the world. Our
products are never formulated with parabens, phthalates,
synthetic fragrances, PEGs, or SLS.

ASTAXANTHIN is one of nature’s strongest antioxidants, well known in the supplement world for years but just recently used in skincare. Astaxanthin has been clinically proved to be 65x stronger than Vitamin C in combating free radicals. And yet another equally credible clinical study shows Astaxanthin has being 6,000x stronger than vitamin C in combating free radicals, 550x stronger than green tea catechins and 75x stronger than alpha lipoic acid (from clinical research by Nishida Y./2007)
COENZYME Q10 helps reduce the appearance of the depth of wrinkles and neutralize free radicals. A coenzyme is a substance that enhances or is necessary for the action of enzymes. They are generally much smaller than enzymes themselves. Coenzyme Q10 is a coenzyme vital to production of energy within cells. It is also a very powerful antioxidant or free radical scavenger. CoQ10 helps to support the body's natural defense mechanism against the damaging effects of free radicals, particularly the lipid peroxidation in skin.
