Maya Chia uses a patented supercritical extraction process which results in the purest, most stable, effective and potent chia oil in the market. The chia seeds itself come from regions that are reputed for the highest quality chia. Another star 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 astaxanthin enhances the antioxidant actions of vitamin C and E due to synergistic effects. All the Maya Chia products utilize the highest quality, natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients from conscious growers across the world. The products are well-suited for people who need hydration and antioxidant protection. 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. The latest addition to the powerful Maya Chia lineup is the Refresh Mint - their first mask in a beautiful blue hue. Besides this Maya Chia includes a mist - The Optimist, a facial cleanser - The Great Cleanse, a body oil - The Revitalizer Beautifying Supercritical Body oil, an eye oil - The Eye Achiever and even a highlighter - The Highlight of the Day in four shades.
