Cha' cha' cha' chia! Who doesn't remember that catchy jingle of the little botanical pet of the 1970's? If we had only known then...
Surely you’ve heard of “chia pets,” which were big in the 1970’s—animal molds that held Chia Seeds—that, once sprouted, look more like alfalfa sprouts. A member of the mint family, Chia has a long history of use in the Incan and Mayan cultures, where they were an important energy source because of their high protein content. In fact, the Indians of the South America used to call the seeds “running food” because they helped runners maintain long periods of stamina with nothing more than a little water.
Fast forward…By now, many of us have sprinkled chia seeds over our cereal, sipped it in our Kombucha or blended some into a seriously healthy smoothie. But these healthful morsels are not just beneficial as food—chia has become a hot new beauty ingredient that boasts pretty amazing anti-aging results.
Bolivian Chia Body Butter begins as Chia Seed Oil that, extracted, contains essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, as well as boatload of antioxidants called tocopherols. In fact, it has the highest levels of antioxidants in the oil family—beating out other popular oils like flax seed.
Chia Body Butter has incredible beauty benefits. Rich in natural proteins, it is anti-inflammatory, immensely calming and antioxidant-rich. What does that mean exactly? Chia great bet for restoring vital moisture, diminishing redness and inhibiting the appearance of wrinkles.
But what does it do exactly? First, its super hydrating! In a study published by The Annals of Dermatology, Bolivian Chia Butter was clinically proven to significantly increase skin hydration, reduce trans-epidermal water loss and increase skin barrier function. Second, it exponentially strengthens your skin. As we age, the barrier of out skin’s outer layer (the epidermis) becomes compromised due to thinning, weakening cells, making it harder for skin to repair self. Topical omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which Chia has in excess, actually help strengthen the epidermis. The beauty of directly applying the chia oil directly to the skin is you are delivering these potent, raw nutrients directly to the source of concern, enforcing the cell membrane and improving the texture and quality of the skin.
Not only can Chia Body Butter help skin stay strong over the years, it also helps build collagen—a key for supporting skin structure and maintaining youthful-looking skin. Chia Butter can also decrease the formation of skin darkening dark age spots (another key way of keeping your face looking fly)!
It's anti-inflammatory. Omega-3 is not only an anti-aging property, it’s anti-inflammatory, too, making Bolivian Chia a great remedy for irritated, inflamed skin or peeling skin. Research has proven that it’s even shown success in decreasing chronically dry and severely itchy skin. Joshua Zeichner, director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, says that these anti-inflammatory molecules not only soothe inflamed skin, they can even reduce UV damage.
It’s a SUPERFOOD SUPER-MOISTURIZER full of Vitamin B, Zinc, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorous and more. It’s even beautiful for oily skin and clogged pores. It’s antioxidants, including naturally occurring chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid, as well as myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol flavonoids offer protection from environmental stressors. In fact, the antioxidants in Chia Seed Butter has shown to be even stronger than vitamin C and vitamin E, two common and powerful antioxidants.
Bolivian Chia is on the lighter side, as far as real body butters go. While other oils may feel greasy and take a while to absorb, chia is ultra light and rapidly absorbs into the skin. So, if you’re tired of oils like Argan—and find it too thick—or you’re still not so sure about putting oil on your oily skin—give Bolivian Chia a spin!
Shelf life 1 year in temperate weather and avoiding direct sunlight. Refrigeration can extend shelf life. During transit, vegetable butters may possibly melt or partially melt. Some butters may crystallize if they resolidify too slowly. This does not impact the quality or usability of the butter.
