Fortify Barrier Repair Cream



Fortify is a breakthrough moisture complex, designed to replace what your skin has lost over time and speed up the recovery of your skin’s barrier function by supporting natural self-repair mechanisms.

A unique blend of Ceramides, Cholesterol, and Hyaluronic Acid penetrate beyond the surface to address chronic dryness and delicate, troubled skin.

Daily Ritual: At sunrise and sunset, gently massage into your face, neck, and décolleté

Skin Concerns: Dry/Mature Skin.


I believe good skin health begins with a healthy moisture barrier, the protective wall locking moisture in and keeping irritants out. Dry and damaged skin is not an easy thing to treat, simply because there are so many factors that may be contributing to its impairment. It may be dehydrated, or it may be oil-dry; that is, lacking important lipids.

Your skin’s moisture barrier has a brick-and-mortar like structure; the “bricks” are skin cells called Corneocytes and the “mortar” is a fatty mixture containing 25% Cholesterol, 25% Fatty Acids, and 50% Ceramides, and all types of lipids.  If the skin’s sebaceous glands are less active, lipid production slows down and barrier function is inhibited.

Fortify was formulated with the perfect ratio of these vital ingredients in order to mimic and strengthen your natural barrier, bringing much needed relief to dry, fragile, and depleted skin.

Ceramides protective role on the skin supports cellular rejuvenation, whilst reinforcing the natural barrier function.

    I found the Naked Chemist website about 3 months ago when I was looking for something to help my skin. It had become extremely sensitive to everything and had developed ugly itchy red, flaky patches. The information on the website was fantastic and made a lot of sense so I followed the recommendations and purchased Fortify, Bio Lipid and H2O. Three months down the track, my skin has recovered beautifully, the peeling and redness has disappeared and my skin has de-sensitised to the point where I have successfully tried some of Samantha’s other amazing products (Glo and Ceramide Repair Balm).

    I also didn’t fully understand the skin shot approach when I first got the products until I read the blog and reviews and realised I should be combining the shots with Fortify to find the best mix for my skin. I now also add some squalane to this mix as I prefer a richer moisturiser.

    I have to add that I’ve become addicted to the luxurious smell and feel of the products I’ve tried to date. For me, they’ve made me love being in my skin again. Thanks Samantha!

    I love this product! I had a microneedling treatment that left my sensitive skin severely dry and dull. I tried the Fortify cream along with a shot of the Bio Lipid Complex and my face is soo soft now. Her products are amazing. I just ordered another round of the Fortify cream and some of her other products which Im excited to try! Samantha is also very nice and helpful.

      Dear Beatrix
      Thank you so much for this feedback, I couldn’t be more happy to hear that my products have helped your skin – which I hope will go some way to help others to heal their skin who have had poorly performed micro needling treatment. I wish you all the best with your skin for the future Samantha

    I have been using Fortify and H2O now for about 9 months I have been using Tretinoin and was struggling with dry irritated skin at times after researching damaged skin barrier I came across the Nakia chemist products and website and was encouraged to try the fortify cream and the H2O hyaluronic acid I can honestly say I have seen a massive improvement in my skin texture and very rarely get dry days Evan though I have continued with tretinoin I am 58 years old and believe in credible skin products rather than paying for a brand with good advertising hype All I can say is that these products are lovely to use and have helped my skin enormously many thanks Samantha

    I was diagnosed with perioral dermatitis 1 year ago. Since then, I have changed all my skincare, makeup, shampoo and toothpaste to natural alternatives. Along with changing my diet, I’ve tried many products over the past year and it has gradually gotten more stable. But it would still occasionally flare up when triggered by environmental factors or certain foods.
    I felt that the skin barrier around my lip must be compromised for it to be so prone to flaring up. I came across The Naked Chemist when I was researching for skincare to help strengthen the skin barrier. I was impressed with the insightful information their website provided about their products and skin health.
    I purchased the Fortify Barrier Repair Cream and the Bio Lipid Complex. I layer the Fortify Cream on top of The Bio Lipid Complex. After using them for about 2 weeks, the skin barrier my lips got much stronger as it hardly gets triggered now.
    My brother who has been suffering from eczema and psoriasis on his face and body for the past 3 months, also uses Fortify and he feels it helps strengthen his skin and calms down the redness and irritation. We are very greatful to Samantha for her amazing products and advice. I have been recommending her products to my friends and family who also suffers from similar skin conditions.
