The pearlized mineral sheen is suspended in an ultra-lightweight, easily absorbed infusion of the world’s most nutrient-rich botanicals. It is makeup that is a treat for the health of your skin and what we hope will be a highlight to your day.
The highlight of the day is available in two shades:
the happy hour — imparts a cool-toned pink radiance – as if you are radiating with joy.
the golden hour — imparts a warm, golden, champagne-like radiance – as if you are lit by candlelight.
after hours — imparts a bronze-golden glow, gilding the skin with a believable sunlit sheen, ideal for a beach-y summertime look.
afternoon delight – imparts a peachy-pink golden glow – as if you might have been up to something naughty. (new shade)

Maya Chia is a clean beauty line founded by Susanne Norwitz, an escapee of the corporate fast track and an unabashed dreamer/believer in pursuing your passions. In her case, this meant creating the highest quality skincare product and giving back in the process.
Her career began as a political speechwriter. Susanne went on to earn a master’s degree at Harvard University. After school, she oversaw the external communications and social media outreach activities for Dunkin’ Brands and Kellogg Company and its subsidiaries, including Kashi. She has since acted as a senior communications advisor, and wrote speeches for C-suite executives at Fortune 100 companies, including Revlon and Walgreens.
Maya Chia Beauty was launched in December of 2014 when the creator, Susanne, left her corporate career to pursue her passion. Susanne was always keenly interested in the act of skin care rituals, and how little acts of self care can profoundly transform the way one feels about yourself. She also had a lifelong interest in the Maya people that started with her father, who is a surgeon, and traveled to Guatemala to perform cleft lip palate surgery on the Mayas
As she casually happened across the mention of chia, she realized that it was an amazing nutritional powerhouse with proven skincare benefits – and also happened to be a staple of the Maya people for thousands of years. Her interest in learning more about the Maya culture increased with the addition of her two stepchildren who were both born in Guatemala, an area rich in Maya heritage. When she learned chia was a staple for the Mayas, and held untold skin benefits, Maya Chia was born.
Maya Chia uses 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. What that means for our customer is that they get the best, purest, most stable, effective, and potent chia oil in the market with up to a 2-year shelf life. Maya Chia donates a portion of the net profits to charitable organizations that help build schools and farms for the Maya people.
Maya Chia skin care products use the highest quality natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients from conscious growers across the world. Our products are never formulated with parabens, pthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, and SLSs. All of our products are made in the USA from domestic and imported components.
