Liquid Gold is a lightweight but powerful moisturizer that fortifies your skin’s moisture barrier to help heal, hydrate, strengthen, and soothe.
HOW IT WORKS:
Your skin’s moisture barrier (the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of the epidermis) has a bricks-and-mortar structure: the bricks are skin cells called corneocytes, and the mortar is a fatty mixture made up of ceramides, cholesterol, and free 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 your dehydration and replenishing that fatty mixture in your stratum corneum, you can address the above symptoms and discover healthy, bouncy, resilient skin.
Like all Stratia products, Liquid Gold is unfragranced, gimmick-free, and formulated based on hard science.
IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
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 need to follow up with a heavier cream.
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 (paler than MAC NC10/NW10) may experience a temporary orange tint, so may want to only use Liquid Gold before bed.
