Maya Chia FAQs
Are Maya Chia seeds organic?
In line with Company policy, chia seeds, like other ingredients, are sourced with care. The seeds are all organically grown in regions that generate the highest possible quality of seeds. According to the company, the growers’ reputation is important to their business. In return, supporting these growers is of utmost importance to them.
However, the certifications ascertaining the organic nature of the seeds may be hard for small growers to acquire. Due to this, Maya Chia works directly with the growers rather than companies issuing certifications. To ensure that the seeds are completely organic, the company encourages its growers not to use pesticides. Rather than take their word for it, though, they screen for pesticides as well.
Does Maya Chia test on animals?
No. The company doesn’t conduct any tests on animals. The company also doesn’t use animal ingredients in the majority of its products. In fact, only three products contain ingredients obtained from animals.
Where are Maya Chia seeds grown?
Maya Chia seeds are obtained from company-linked growers located 5 – 10 degrees north or south of the equator. Farms located in this region have the best quality of nutrient-dense chia seeds.
Can vegans use Maya Chia products?
Only three products within the Maya Chia catalog contain ingredients sourced from animals. The Waterless Wonder Balm and The Super Blend contain Beeswax, while the Afternoon Delight shade of The Highlight of the Day contains carmine. Other than these, all other Maya Chia products are free from animal ingredients and appropriate for vegan use.
Can pregnant women use Maya Chia products?
Maya Chia produces gentle but potent products. As such, their products apply to people of all skin types.
