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.

I’ve been sifting through reviews of liquid gold for months now, carefully assessing if it would be a good addition to my skincare routine. I finally decided to purchase when I had finished my last bottle of moisturizer and I’m so glad I did. I’m a 30 year old woman who has been using liquid gold for under a month and even with social distancing, the difference has already been noticed. This past weekend my boyfriend told me that I look “very young” and “luminous”. I, myself, have noticed since using liquid gold that the texture of my skin is more even and my skin feels more perky. I’m very excited to continue using this moisturizer. In fact, I like this product so much that I ordered an extra bottle to gift to my sister!
A lightweight, non-greasy moisturiser that helps fade scars and hyperpigmentation. A little goes a long way. Not particularly occlusive, so some may prefer a heavier cream for nighttime use, but it's perfect for daytime use under makeup. Also helps calm down an angry skin barrier if you've overexfoliated!
No frills product that works well and doesn’t clog your skin.
Overall this moisturizer is light for my very dry skin. I need heavier and this will probably good to use it in the summer.
My skin drinks this up - applies smooth, didn’t cause me to break out when I moved over from my last moisturizer. My skin feels protected and healthy. The tint helps add some brightness to my complexion and has been a hero against winter skin.
