How it works
Fatty acids are absolutely crucial to skin health. As one of the main components in the skin’s moisture barrier, fatty acids are found throughout the epidermis and dermis.
Essential fatty acids, like omega-3 (alpha-linolenic) and omega-6 (linoleic), have a wide range of beneficial effects to the skin. They can mitigate UV damage, reduce the signs of aging, decrease sensitivity, and increase overall skin health. They can also lighten sun spots and other UV-induced hyperpigmentation. Borage seed oil, perilla seed oil, and cranberry seed oil contain 60-75% linoleic/alpha-linolenic acids each, giving Fortify its omega 3 and 6 components.
Oleic acid (omega-9) is a powerful moisturizer and skin-softener. Most of Fortify’s oleic acid comes from Camellia japonica oil, which has been shown to increase skin health and potentially reduce the signs of aging; it also has significant anti-inflammatory effects. Fortify’s other major source of oleic acid, marula oil, possesses strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers.
Is it right for me?
Fortify is a medium-weight oil that's minimally greasy and especially great for those with dry, combo, dehydrated, or sensitive skin. Pat a few drops into your skin before or instead of your usual moisturizer. Or, to give your normal routine a fatty acid boost, mix a couple drops into your serum, lotion, or foundation.

I use about three drops mixed in with Liquid Gold at night and I’m very impressed so far, it’s helping my skin a lot through my retinol use and the cooler weather! Very oily skin friendly if you are dehydrated!
I love how this feels on my skin. It doesn’t make my face feel too oily but it’s enough that by the time I wake up in the morning, my face feels moisturized.
Excellent product I love how it feels how it smells & what fortify does
I love that you get get this facial oil for a good price. Good quality facial oils are so expensive at other skincare lines. This facial oil is not too greasy and sinks right in. I love the smell as well. I do not like the bottle application however and that took a point off for me. I had to pour it in a bottle with a dropper. Maybe that is part of the reason it it less expensive. I don't know. . I am going to re- order though because it is that good.
I put two or three drops in a dollop of moisturizer at night as the final step in my routine and I feel like this deeply penetrates my skin and makes me so fresh and glowy
