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.

- Liquid Gold
Love this oil so much !! Sinks in and feels absolutely amazing . Will repurchase
I'm not sure how I feel about this oil. I bought it because I found the Liquid Gold a bit 'light' for our dry Midwestern winters. But the oil feels difficult for my skin to absorb. I hate to rate it low if it's just not right for MY skin. It may work wonderfully on someone else's. I chose to keep it and I just use very little and pat it on my face. This bottle will likely last be for quite a while. I also don't love the smell. I guess it just smells like oil, lol. I don't think there is any scent in it. Which is fine, some may allergic to scents. It's just a little underwhelming for me. But it did help a teeny bit to make the LG a bit more moisturizing. I need to try my squalane oil with the LG and compare it to Fortify.
Winter skin rescue
I love using this as part of my night routine for the winter. I only need a few drops mixed with my face cream. I also add it to my shins to keep them from getting too itchy.
the smell is so delicious it makes me want to lick my face! and my dry skin slurps it up. i only use a few times a week, but each day i do is a lovely one.
Great facial oil
I love this oil, it nourishes my skin and is absorbed quickly so that it doesn't leave my face oily. I have used it for the last year, and anticipate to keep using it.
