Stratia Liquid Gold
It contains effective concentrations of ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids to support your skin’s natural moisture barrier. It also includes other star ingredients like niacinamide for anti-aging and for fading dark spots, and hyaluronic acid to bind moisture to your skin.
The amazing yellow gold color comes from two kinds of sea buckthorn oil, which contains fatty acids and antioxidants. Sea buckthorn oil is kind of the facial oil du jour these days (it’s the key ingredient in Fresh’s Seaberry Facial Oil, for instance, it contains omega-3, 6, 7, and 9, as well as other antioxidants. The product aims to replenish the fatty content of your skin to heal dehydration and strengthen your skin’s natural defenses.
Liquid Gold is marketed as a moisturizer, to be used as a last step or close to last step, sealing in other hydrating layers. It’s also a skin barrier repairing treatment. It’s not thick like a cream, but it’s not runny either. It has a consistency like an emulsion or a light lotion, but it feels very moisturizing as you apply it to your skin. You can tell that there are oils in the formula, but it doesn’t feel oily once it has absorbed. Once absorbed, it leaves very little residue on top of the skin.
There is no added fragrance, but it has a faint scent. I can only describe it as an oily, seaweedy scent.
