- What it is: Your skin’s moisture barrier (the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of the epidermis) has a bricks-and-mortar structure. The bricks are flat, dead skin cells called corneocytes, and the mortar is a fatty mixture made up of ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids. This mixture keeps your skin healthy, clear, and resilient. If it’s compromised, it can lead to skin that’s simultaneously dry and oily, extremely sensitive, or acne-prone. Liquid Gold is formulated with ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids to mimic and strengthen your natural moisture barrier. By healing dehydration and replenishing that fatty mixture in your stratum corneum, you can address the above symptoms and discover healthy, bouncy, resilient skin. The yellow color is completely natural, caused by the bright red color of sea buckthorn oil. It's non-staining and vanishes on application for most skin types. Those with extremely pale skin may experience a temporary orange tint, so may want to only use Liquid Gold before bed.
- What it does: Restores moisture barrier to keep skin healthy, clear, and resilient Strengthens & replenishes to reveal youthful, bouncy skin Soothes and repairs dehydrated, tired skin Promotes cell turnover to brighten and help minimize fine lines
- Who it's for: Liquid Gold is great for all skin types, but works especially well for dehydrated or over-exfoliated skin. Those with normal to oily skin may find Liquid Gold is moisturizing enough to be their only moisturizer, while drier skin types may want to follow it with a heavier cream. All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.
