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 love love love this moisturizer! I can’t wait to try stratia’s other products.
I’ve had acne for as long as I can remember. I went to see a doctor one day and he put me on tretinoin. My skin started purging and it just hurt to touch my face. Then I came across this moisturizer that contains some of the best ingredients out there. I decided to give it a try and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Ever since I started using the liquid gold moisturizer, my skin stopped purging completely. Although, this moisturizer is a little too lightweight for my skin, so I just use it as a serum. I really noticed a big difference in my skin like it has gotten brighter and healthier.
This product has brought so much balance to my skin and has helped me heal a damaged skin barrier from overuse of active ingredients. I love the feel of this lightweight and emollient moisturizer!
This a great product and I love it... made my face so Supple.
This versatile moisturizer is a staple for me. One pump sits well on my combo skin, leaving me hydrated, plump and with a natural "glow". Not greasy or heavy. If my skin ever feels overly dry, I can use this as a "serum" (Under an oil or heavier moisturizer) or simply layer an additional pump of Liquid Gold. Great product, quick shipping and good value for money.
