Fortify is a breakthrough moisture complex designed to address a dry, inflamed, combination skin type derived from 90% natural ingredients.

It contains a unique blend of 2% Ceramides, 4% Cholesterol, and 2% Lipids, the exact ratio found in your skin. Fortify replenishes the natural compounds found in healthy skin, replacing what your skin has lost over time, and supporting the natural self-repair of the barrier function.

Critical Vitamins, Omegas 3, 6, & 9, and Pohutukawa extract deeply nourish. New Zealand native cold-pressed Avocado and Macadamia oils leave your skin silky soft and protected for an obsession-worthy glow.

Daily Ritual: Morning and night, gently massage your face, neck, and décolleté.

Skin Concerns: Dry/Mature Skin.

NZ Pohutakawa & Ceramides  60mL (2.0 fl oz)

We believe good skin health begins with a healthy moisture barrier – the protective wall – locks moisture in and keeps irritants out, keeping your skin healthy.

Sadly over time, environmental stressors, age, harsh products and inappropriate treatments can undermine essential ingredients in your skin, breaking down the barrier function. As much as 50% of Lipids can be lost from your skin, damaging this protective barrier. Therefore, the more variety of Lipids you have, the better your barrier will defend against many skin conditions ranging from premature ageing to severe dryness, breakouts or inflammation.

You can think of your protective barrier as the brick-and-mortar structure of your skin, containing “bricks” of Corneocytes or skin cells. Ceramides, Cholesterol, and Fatty Acids are the “mortar” that holds these bricks together whilst preventing irritants and harmful bacteria from entering.

Fortify contains ingredients that mimic the composition and structure of your skin. It has the perfect ratio of skin-identical ingredients that infuse your skin’s network, allowing it to integrate into the cells perfectly and the spaces between them to relieve dry, fragile, inflamed skin.

These ingredients are the science behind restoring and maintaining your barrier’s health – the armour which will ultimately keep your skin healthy. When functioning correctly, the acid mantle’s delicate microflora is balanced, the protective barrier function is intact, and your skin is youthful.

FREE FROM: Silicones, synthetic fragrance, parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, phthalates, silicones, lanolin, petrolatum, propylene glycol, PEGs, and more.

Skin Health Benefits

  • balances a combination skin type
  • replenishing with skin-identical ingredients
  • restores the acid mantle that keeps your skin healthy
  • ceramide-rich formula reinforces  your skin’s barrier function
  • offers in-depth moisturisation; relieving dry and sensitive skin conditions


Ceramides: They have a protective role on your skin, helping to support cell rejuvenation. They are incredibly healing, helping to reinforce your skin’s barrier function.
Pohutukawa: Your skin fully recognises these deeply conditioning botanical extracts as identical to the nutritional building blocks of its structure, greatly enhancing its ability to strengthen and repair itself.
4% Lipid complex: All cells have a membrane of essential Lipid structures that regulate optimal cellular activity. Our complex mimics these Lipids integrating with the cell membranes, nourishing and restoring the barrier function.
Macadamia Nut Oil: This skin-identical oil is rich in Oleic (Omega 9) and Linoleic (Omega 6) acids, which repair and help reduce water loss from your skin’s surface. Palmitoleic (Omega 7) acid is an active antimicrobial that helps to keep skin healthy.
Cholesterol: Around 25% of Cholesterol makes up your extracellular matrix which plays a vital role in maintaining the barrier function. Cholesterol depletes with age and trauma, so it topically replenishes with Cholesterol.

    I just have to re-order the Fortify cream, it is that good!! I’ve been diagnosed with seborrhoeic dermatitis + mild rosacea and it’s been very difficult to find a moisturiser that calms my skin without breaking me out. I spoke with Sam about my condition and she suggested this cream with a slight adjustment to the ingredients (I know what my common irritants are). I notice that it’s worked very well to repair (and maintain) my skin barrier throughout winter. I thought I won’t need it in summer but I was wrong 😑 I found the summer temperature here (Victoria, Australia) is as dry as winter with very little humidity, so my skin is dry (cheek area) and dehydrated (T-zone). I like the elegant texture of this cream as well, not shiny, not matt, just the right consistency. I found her when researching about seb derm and another blogger pointed me to her blog I found very educational, I learned a lot about her own skin journey and various skincare ingredients from there too. Thanks Sam & team, you’ve made a difference to the way I look after my skin health. Cheers!!

Humidity, the sun an impaired barrier and your associated conditions are not easy to treat, But this well-thought-out moisturiser has been years in the making and tweaking for you, of course. to really help people heal their skin.
