Liquid Gold


A lightweight but powerful moisturizer that heals, hydrates, strengthens, and soothes.

Liquid Gold is a one-stop skin-saving powerhouse that belongs in every skincare routine. It’s formulated with ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids, the three main ingredients that make up your skin’s moisture barrier. No matter what shape your skin is in, Liquid Gold keeps your face healthy, clear, and resilient.


Strengthen and replenish to reveal bouncy, healthy skin.

Two types of sea buckthorn oil give Liquid Gold its signature vibrant color.

Sea Buckthorn Oil

Liquid Gold’s signature color comes from two types of oil from the sea buckthorn plant. Each oil features unique fatty acids that heal, strengthen, and support your skin’s natural structure.


An all-around skin hero that can regulate cell turnover, fade hyperpigmentation, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and strengthen your skin barrier.

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 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.

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 want to follow it 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 may experience a temporary orange tint, so may want to only use Liquid Gold before bed.

All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.

Quickly became one of my skincare favorites!

I loved this product so much! My skin was so irritated and stressed and I noticed a much better complexion within my first week of using it. Feels VERY calming.

I have never loved a moisturizer as much as I love this one. I’ve always struggled with extremely dry skin, nothing would completely hydrate my skin. Within weeks of using this moisturizer my skin has become baby smooth. I’m very acne prone and struggle with cystic acne and this moisturizer is so gentle and so lightweight it feels amazing I cannot recommend it enough!

My skin gets horribly dry and irritated especially in the winter, and this product has been one of the few things that has genuinely helped. In one use, I feel that my skin is hydrated. This has been the only skincare product I’ve purchased more than twice because it works so consistently well. I use it as my moisturizer in the summer, and as a “serum” in the winter, applying it before another moisturizer day & night. It is the only product that I recommend to friends because I love it that much!

Ol' reliable!

This has done an excellent job of keeping my skin consistently hydrated. I love that it's the perfect middle ground between heavy and light, and it pairs well with multiple sunscreens that I've used throughout the years. If you're concerned about the orange color, I can say that it fades once you rub it in. The bottle also lasts for a surprisingly long time.
