Featured Author: Introducing the Skincare Egg by Stratia's CEO Alli Reed

You probably already know about Egg, the Food: it’s a great source of protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. While Food Egg is great for your insides, let’s meet a new egg that’s great for your outsides: Skincare Egg.


The Skincare Egg is a barrier-nourishing mixture of two Stratia moisturizers, Interface (the white) and Liquid Gold (the yolk). Both products serve to nourish your skin’s natural moisture barrier, but they use different mechanisms to do it, which makes them a powerful combo.

Liquid Gold


Stratia Liquid Gold
Liquid Gold is like first aid for a damaged moisture barrier. It’s formulated with the same stuff your barrier is made out of: ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids. That means it can directly mimic and reinforce your skin barrier, so you’ll see quick results for stronger, healthier, more resilient skin.



Stratia Interface


Interface is more of a long-term play. It contains encapsulated, targeted peptides that stimulate the production of certain key proteins in your skin. Those proteins strengthen your barrier from the inside. It can take a few weeks of daily use to see a difference, but it’s a difference that reaches deeper and lasts longer.

The exact ratio you use for your egg depends on your skin! If you’ve over-exfoliated and need some immediate repair, try an inverse egg: mostly yellow with a little white. If you’re looking for long-term barrier support, then the traditional egg ratio can give you deep, lasting moisture with a little extra barrier boost.

Alli's Fav Asian Beauty Products

Supplement a healthy moisture barrier with some of my personal favorite K-beauty and J-beauty products:

Hada Labo Cleansing Oil

Hadalabo Cleansing Oil

Removing makeup, sunscreen, and grime at the end of the day is hyper-important for clear, healthy skin. I’ve used this cleansing oil for nearly a decade, and it can’t be beaten for performance, gentleness, and price.

Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sun Gel

Isntree Hyalruonic Acid Watery Sun Gel

Nothing wrecks a moisture barrier quite like a sunburn. (Plus, you know, that pesky skin cancer.) I love this as a daily, forget-I’m-wearing-it sunscreen on my dry skin.

Cosrx Pimple Patches

Cosrx Acne Patches

When your moisture barrier is damaged, it makes it easier for bacteria to get in and harder for your skin to clear out dead skin cells, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Despite all the newer US-based brands that have come out with pimple patches, I’m a die-hard Cosrx girl. They’re affordable and they work as well as or better than anything else I’ve tried.

About the Author:Alli Reed

Alli Reed from Stratia

Driven by boundless scientific curiosity to figure out how skincare works, Stratia founder Alli Reed utilized her chemistry background and the power of the internet to teach herself how to formulate skincare products that actually worked. After a lot of trial and error, Alli perfected the formulas for two products and began selling them direct-to-consumer. Fast forward to today, Stratia has grown a cult following for its science-based and highly effective skincare products, as well as its radical transparency around the what, why, and how of each formulation.
