Maya Chia is (literally) close to our hearts being based right here in Charleston! Susanne launched her line in 2014 and the effectiveness of her formulations speak for themselves.
They are consistently a Wildcraft bestseller, year after year. We've watched the Maya Chia brand catapult into national cult status landing it on the "Best of..." list with every new launch. And with good reason, because Susanne uses only high-performance, plant-based ingredients that WORK (and work rather quickly!), yielding the results we really want in our skincare.
Susanne Norwitz has a deep connection to the Maya people that dates back to her childhood. Susanne's father, a renowned surgeon, performed cleft lip and palate repair on the Maya people of Guatemala. 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. At Maya Chia, Susanne is formulating the future of skincare.✨
