But what makes MAYA CHIA so special?
I really appreciate when a line includes just a few products. That tells me that it’s a finely focused, thoughtful, curated brand, and that is certainly the case with Maya Chia. It’s abundantly clear that each product is honed to perfection before launch, with so much thought and care given to what products are offered. Susanne’s formulations are all so unique…they are each truly one-of-a-kind. Here’s a few more reasons Maya Chia skincare is so awesome:
- Powerhouse ingredient, Chia Oil – The foundation of all Maya Chia products. They use their own patented supercritical process to safely extract the purest and most effective form of chia seed oil (and they apply that same veracity to all of their other ingredients as well).
- Innovative, clean ingredients that WORK – The simple truth about this line is that the products are effective. You WILL see results. And MC does this by finding the highest quality, natural, organic, wildcrafted, efficacious, next-level ingredients from conscious growers around the world. Along with harnessing the goodness of chia oil, Maya Chia was one of the first to bring several groundbreaking ingredients to skincare products, including Astaxanthin (which is 65x stronger than vitamin C!) and a BHT-free retinol.
- No nasties – It goes without saying, but Maya Chia products are free of all of the standard nasties (parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, SLSs, PEGs, or SLSs, etc.).
- Sensitive-skinned people can rejoice – I’ve tried much of the Maya Chia line, and haven’t had any issues with my crazy skin. And given the power behind many of the products, that’s pretty damn amazing. In fact, one of the things that has made me a Maya Chia fangirl for life is that for the first time, I can use a vitamin C serum. Like, in ever. And if you’ve been sensitive to retinols, stay tuned, because MC has you covered there too!
I’ve liked every single product I’ve ever tried from Maya Chia, but in keeping with tradition I’ll spotlight my 5 favorite Maya Chia products (plus a bonus…a new product that just recently launched!). Like our children, I can’t pick a favorite, so these are in no particular order and all equally superb.
You can purchase Maya Chia products directly from their site, but I’m also providing links to 2 of my other favorite shops as well, because you never know who’s running a sale or has a promo code available!
Keep in mind that my skin is pushing 50 soon, a bit combo in the warmer months, dry in the colder and super freaking sensitive. That said, several of these work for all different skin types (you’ll see on the Maya Chia website that you can search by skin concern/type to see what fits your needs).
