The Optimist uses the highest quality natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients from conscious growers across the world. This moisture concentrate is formulated without parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGs and SLSs.

    Love Maya Chia

    I really enjoy Maya Chia products. I live in Alaska so my skin is really dry and the products really moisturize my skin.

    Light but enough

    I've been using just a hydrosol at night for my skin as oil and creams are too heavy for my skin. Sometimes I needed a little something more than hydrosol though. This seems to be something more. It feels like a hydrosol and smells amazing. It also leaves my face quiet soft without being greasy or sticky like some products I've tried. So glad I ordered a few samples first and went with my gut and got a full size. Will be my go to nightly mist spray now!
