OUR FOUNDER: FORMULATING THE FUTURE
At Maya Chia, we are formulating the future.
Susanne Norwitz always had a passion for skincare [her father was a plastic surgeon]. A clean beauty enthusiast, Susanne felt that advances in marketing were unaccompanied by advances in efficacy. The promises of new products all seemed to fall flat. Consumers were longing for real results, and Susanne set out to create a game-changing line that redefined clean-beauty standards.
The Chia seeds powering Maya Chia's formulations are sourced from Guatemala - home of the Maya people. For centuries, the Maya people have used Chia seeds as a form of a nutrient-dense food source. And of the past few decades, science has affirmed what the Maya people have always known. Chia seeds have unparalleled health and wellness properties.
Susanne's connection to the Maya people dates back to her childhood. Susanne's father, a renowned surgeon, performed cleft lip and palate repair on the Maya people of Guatemala. At a young age, Susanne remembers her father's stories in which he recounted the rich culture of the Maya people.
Her affinity for Mayan culture only grew with the addition of her two stepchildren, both born in Guatemala. Susanne's discovery of Chia's skin benefits and importance for the Maya - coupled with her determination to create an unrivaled skincare brand - paved the way for Maya Chia's inception.
Prior to starting Maya Chia, Susanne was a political and Fortune 100 speechwriter working with C-suite executives. She holds a masters degree from Harvard University.
Since launching Maya Chia, the brand has become one of the most decorated in the clean beauty space. Her formulations break through the clutter of the clean and conventional beauty landscape. Maya Chia is, in fact, changing the clean beauty landscape - one formulation at a time.
