When we think of Chia seeds we think of small, dark seeds that taste nutty and crunchy and have this gelatinous texture when soaked in liquid. These little, tiny seeds look so unassuming but actually are nutritional powerhouses that are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and protein. Chia seeds have emerged as a popular source of several vitamins and minerals and can be easily incorporated into one’s diet. They can be used in chia seed pudding, soaked and eaten like tapioca pudding, or sprinkled in salads and on smoothies.
But did you know that some cultures also prize the tiny seed for its skincare benefits? The seed is native to South America where the people use the oil from the seeds in many skincare applications. Susanne Norwitz, learned from her travels through the Mayan region that the Chia seed was an unmatched nutritional powerhouse with proven skin benefits and that Chia seeds are nature's most energy-dense superfoods and researchers have deemed it 'one of the most powerful antioxidants'. That’s when she created the skincare line Maya Chia which harnesses this power creating timeless products that are luxurious and high-performing. Chia seed oil is the star of the line and all the products are effective and luxurious, and range from body oils to face serums and even a blue-hued mask.
Maya Chia uses chia seeds that come from regions that are reputed for the highest quality chia, and the company uses a patented supercritical extraction process which results in the purest, most stable, effective and potent chia oil in the market. Another hero ingredient in the Maya Chia formulations is Astaxanthin. University studies show that natural astaxanthin (from the microalgae plant), is 65X stronger than Vitamin C & 14X stronger than Vitamin E in combating free radicals. Studies have also found that astaxanthin enhances the antioxidant actions of vitamin C and E due to its synergistic effects with the vitamins. Maya Chia works directly with conscious growers across the world to source the highest quality, natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients that go into formulating the impeccable products. The products provide intense hydration and antioxidant protection and are considered stellar anti-aging choices. Maya Chia has been giving back to the Mayan people and helping hundreds of children and families by providing education and skills training so that they may improve their social and economic conditions. A few of the Maya Chia products have even achieved cult status: Pure Supercritical Omega-3 Chia Seed Oil, The Super Couple and the Super Blend. The brand also has a face serum that works as a highlighter - The Highlight of the Day that is available in four shades. Inspite of the brands’ efficacious formulations, the price point is affordable and will convert you on the power of chia seeds.
