Maya Chia is an ingredient-led brand from the States. As the brand name suggests, they use the chia seed, together with green science and a patented extraction method to bring results-driven skincare since 2014.
Chia seeds are the richest known plant source of omega fatty acids, antioxidants and essential minerals – all factors that play a vital role for the health of your skin. In a study published in the Annals of Dermatology, chia oil was clinically proven to significantly increase skin hydration, reduce trans-epidermal water loss and increase skin barrier function.
In certain cases, as is the case with chia seeds, the way you extract the oil from the plant makes all the difference for the purity, longevity and efficacy of the oil. Maya Chia has licensed the patent for supercritical extraction of chia seed oil for topical usage in the United States.
