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.

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.

Fantastic for skin that has been compromised by over-exfoliation. Texture is lovely.
This has been the only moisturizer I can use since I started using Retin-a. It feels so good to put it on my dry/irritated/purging skin. Please don’t ever stop making this! My only complaint is the bottle shape. Once it starts to get about half way used, the bottle tips over all the time.
I cannot be without Liquid Gold! It's so moisturizing and soothing and it completely fixed my damaged moisture barrier. I use this as my "first moisturizer" at night (I use two moisturizers at night - dry skin fun!) and I mix it with a lighter moisturizer for daytime use too. I would absolutely use it alone in the daytime, but I have very fair skin and it does leave a little bit of an orange tint on my skin, due to the inclusion of sea buckthorn. This has fantastic, science-based ingredients and is just wonderful for repairing/keeping a healthy moisture barrier. I have bought many and always have a backup because my skin definitely isn't as moisturized and happy without it!
This is my new holy grail moisturizer - I'm on my 4th bottle since 2019. I use it on my face, neck, and decolletage and I GLOW. Has never given my skin any problems, no little bumps or sensitivities. Plays nice with foundation and powder.
After an introduction to skincare and over exfoliating the **** out of my skin - this was the only thing that saved it. Super hydrating, soothing, and even smells good. Colour is a shock at first but just make sure to rub it into those eyebrows.
