Mighty Maya Chia!
The use of oil in skincare is no new thing. When it comes up in conversation I generally get an eye roll. Why use oil? There are many benefits but for now I’m excited to share January’s Hero Selection from Beauty Heroes – Mighty Maya Chia!
Beauty Heroes takes the world of subscription boxes to a whole new level. They are a beauty discovery service! Discovery is the art of experience if you ask me and an experience is what you get with each product you receive! Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot on a mission to deliver safe skincare, packed with ‘Superpower Ingredients’ and void of ‘Villain Ingredients’. You can read more about Ingredient Intelligence and download your pocket guide here.
Maya Chia began their journey in late 2014 when their founder, Susanne Norwitz, left the corporate world to bring us this true ‘Beauty Hero’. Her research on the power of chia was extensive and resulted in using the best, purest and most potent chia oil on the planet. The patented process is called supercritical extraction. This method is performed without the use of chemicals or introducing other impurities. This month’s ‘Beauty Selection’ brings us The Super Couple and the sidekick of Waterless Wonder Balm.
What is Chia?
Chia has been getting a lot of press as of late but is not new! It’s been a part of my diet for many years and rose to ‘Superfood’ status some years ago. Chia originates in Mexico and means ‘strength’ in the Mayan language. Chia is rich in fibre, protein, Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and more! Chia is known for it’s antioxidant properties which contribute to a healthy aging process and it’s high fibre content supports digestive health. It is packed with nutrients that should be a part of your daily diet. What you put in your body effects your skin. With Maya Chia you can get the benefits from the outside too!
Waterless Wonder Balm
The Waterless Wonder Balm is a multipurpose balm! Highly nourishing with key ingredients of parkii butter, supercritical chia oil and a light scent of orange blossom. This product is good for your lips, face, cuticles and more! In our recent winter cold snap I was able to use this balm all over my face when going out and feel like it was a true life saver! While this balm has a creamy texture it is readily absorbed in the skin.
Retails: $42 U.S.
The Super Couple
The Super Couple is an ultra luxe face oil that I found extremely hydrating, nourishing and the colour like non other! The rich almost pink hue is intriguing and immediately drew me in. I had a slight break out in the chin area when this product arrived. After only one use it cleared off! I’m convinced, on this alone, of the healing power of supercritical chia oil in skincare and the benefits of the minerals, omega’s and fatty acids it contains. The Super Couple also boasts the power of jasmine, sandalwood and carrot seed oil!
Retails: $85 U.S.
I love that the Maya Chia products are made with organic or wild crafted ingredients when available and that they are formulated without parabens, PEGS, SLS’s or phthalates.
Beauty Heroes is a monthly subscription service and when you order before the 20th of each month you will receive that month’s ‘Beauty Selection’ while supplies last. A 3 month subscription is $115 U.S. and ,even with exchange rates, the value is incredible. This January selection is valued at $127 U.S. Beauty Heroes really has immense value in each and every box.
