Founded by Susanne Norwitz, Maya Chia is a luxurious skin care line focused on the amazing nutritional properties of chia. They use 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. It is the best, purest, most stable, effective, and potent chia oil with up to a 2-year shelf life. Maya Chia also donates a portion of the net profits to charitable organizations that help build schools and farms for the Maya people.
