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

This has been the best addition to my skincare routine. This has literally saved my skin barrier (along with liquid gold) while using Tretinion! These are now holly grails in my skincare routine!
I love Fortify! One of the facial oils I return to time and time again. I just find it to be super well balanced and an ideal blend for my skin. It's rich without being too heavy.
My skin loves this stuff! Good job Alli on putting these oils together. I wouldn't have tried oils on my face with my blemish-prone skin had she not let me try it out and now I can't stop ordering it! Niiiiiice job! Love your products and recommending them to all my friends! :) -ali
This is a beautiful facial oil, just not the best for my skin specifically. There is a bit too heavy on the oleic acid for my dry-dehydrated, sensitive skin, so unfortunately this broke me out. The oil itself sinks in and makes skin feel velvety-smooth with a lovely glow, and it can be mixed with Rewind or Liquid Gold, or another serum or moisturizer. I also was not a fan of the shaker dispenser, as it would often dispense too much product and drip all over the inside of the cap. I am switching back to pure rosehip seed oil in a glass dropper bottle. My sister and several of my friends love it though!
Really enjoy the product itself. At times it does have a fishy smell but it’s not overpowering and goes away quickly. It’s very moisturizing and a lovely product. With all of the above said, I will also add that the container it comes in is truly awful. I have wasted so much product because of the inefficient way it dispenses the oil, and it’s near impossible to control the amount of product that comes out. Love the oil, but will refrain from purchasing again until the dispenser is changed.
