Ingredients 101: Chia Seeds

Natural or Synthetic: Natural

Origin: Chia seeds come from a species of flowing plant in the Lamiaceae (Mint) family.

Location: Chia seeds are native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala.

Beauty Benefits: Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids strengthen the skin cell membrane of the epidermis and improve the texture and quality of the skin. Chia seeds are also anti-inflammatory and ultra-moisturising - they also help to reduce redness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Warnings: Using chia seed oil topically is completely safe.
