When your barrier is functioning correctly
Your acid mantle’s microbiome is perfectly balanced.
And it is this that is the key to healthy skin.

As a clinical esthetician, I understand that skin health begins with a healthy moisture barrier – the protective wall – that locks moisture in and keeps irritants out.

Sadly over time, environmental stressors, age, harsh products and inappropriate treatments undermine essential ingredients in your skin, breaking down the barrier function and knocking your skin’s pH out of balance.

Studies (1) have found that as much as 50% of lipids can be lost from your skin, damaging this protective barrier.

Therefore, the more variety of lipids you replenish topically, 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” or skin cells. The ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids (lipids) are the “mortar” that holds the bricks together, preventing irritants and harmful bacteria from entering.

They are an integral part of your skin health and the key to a well-functioning barrier system – the essential armour (2) that has been scientifically proven to keep your skin healthy.

The essence of skin moisturising is lipid replacement. Fortify was created to do this with the perfect ratio of skin-identical ingredients that mimic the composition and structure of your skin.

Ingredients that integrate perfectly into the cells and the spaces between them to repair your barrier and heal many of its associated conditions such as extreme dryness, irritation, premature ageing, acne inflammation, sensitivity and more.

Fatty acids: They keep skin supple and nourished, supporting healthy, younger-looking skin
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.

  2. Rebecca Greer

    Been using this product for two months now and honestly so pleasantly surprised by the results it’s an anti ageing miracle cure I layer it over H20 and then DNA and wow what a difference

    • Samantha Miller

  3. Libby James

    I bought one for myself and my daughter i loved the combination of ceramides and lipids and cholesterol in the formula. We are both very impressed with the product seeing really great results with our skin. Just placed another order thankyou

    • Samantha Miller

      Lovely review so pleased you are both getting great results

  4. Britta

    Even though Quench is my new go to moisturizer for my dehydrated combination skin, I wanted something richer for night time or when my skin feels a bit compromised. Fortify’s texture is light and absorbs quickly, the scent reminds me of dark chocolate. It feels very nourishing and calming, but not heavy at all. I catch myself stroking my cheek at night, because my skin feels so smooth and soft, haha. I would totally recommend Fortify to anyone who feels their skin needs a little pick me up or barrier support. Every product I’ve tried so far has been a winner, and this is no exception.

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Britta apologies we over looked this earlier but really love this review thank you so much it means so much. we will post it instagram. Ultimately we are just so pleased you are getting results with our products it means a lot this feedback really does.

  6. Josh

    I’m incredibly grateful for this unique moisturiser with its healing ceramides and lipids, its really amazing and it has turned my once-combination skin around I can only put this down to the unique combination of ingredients.

    • Samantha Miller

      Josh thankyou a lot of work and thought goes into our formulas so that our clients can get skin healing. So this helps us to know we are on the right track.

  7. Katie

    I rarely review but I have eczema and purchased this moisturiser as part of the dry skin kit and wow what a difference the eczema on my legs is gone only on my ankle now

    • Samantha Miller

      Katie so pleased your eczema is healing, its what we stand for as a brand and why our founder created the company in the first place to heal her own eczema and psoriasis.

  8. Nicki Brown

    This product has been a saviour for healing after an allergic reaction to a strong Vitamin C serum, which left me with angry red, cracking and itchy skin. I’m using this three times a day and I’m seeing rapid results, I will continue to use this along with the H20 for the foreseeable future. Thank you.

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi, Nicki Really pleased your poorly skin is getting such excellent results with Fortify. It’s not easy to heal damaged skin. It needs very specific skin-identical ingredients, which is what Fortify is specifically formulated for. So really pleased you are seeing some skin healing.

  9. Johnson Tepps

    Such a unique product my skin feels really moisturised and protected.. great product, thank you

  10. Paige

    I have struggled with my eczema gif years. Finally I came across your company and this product along with miracle cleanse and d bio lipid has really turned it around it thank you

  11. Sandy

    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!!

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi, Sandy what a really wonderful review. We appreciate it has been a journey treating your skin but so happy with the results. 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. Samantha

  12. Jane henry

  14. Sarah

    Hi Samantha I e been using The dry skin kit for 6 weeks and my skin is completely changed. It’s incredible it’s no longer dry and sensitive and I especially love Fortify incredibly healing.

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Sarah, we are really pleased with your skin healing journey. Keep using fragrance-free products with a good ratio of ceramide, lipids and cholesterol to heal your barrier nd you will see a big improvement in your skin.
