You have probably never heard of Dr. James Fulton but you surely know the products he created. He developed Retin-A, benzoyl peroxide, topical erythromycin, and more. These ingredients revolutionized skin care for aging, acne, and hyperpigmentation/melasma. He launched the skin care line, VIVANT (means Living in French) in 1990 and it is still a family owned and run company.
As someone in the specialty of skin care, injectables, and rejuvenation, it gives me goosebumps to come across products and systems that elevate results safely and quickly. If you think you have achieved peak skin condition, you will be impressed that this can take things up a notch or two.
The products and regimens are for patients who are motivated and committed to treatment of common but serious skin issues or just want to achieve healthier, smoother skin. You will see a visible difference in skin texture, tone, and appearance in just a few weeks. Dr. Fulton also patented a form of Vitamin A that is milder but just as effective in the skin than the harsher Retin-A and works in the sweet spot of the dermis without the bothersome side effects.
Mandelic acid features prominently in many of the cleansers and serums of the Vivant skin care line. Mandelic acid is in the group of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) that includes glycolic and lactic acids. It is extracted from bitter almonds, is the gentlest of the AHAs and, in addition to being safe for all skin types, it has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. It is extremely effective in “lifting” pigmentation from the skin and generating new collagen and elastin.
I am very excited to now also carry the VIVANT skin care line. Proud as well, to have such groundbreaking science in the same formulations as Dr. Fulton created years ago. His products and protocols were as effective then as today with no alteration. You don’t mess with the Holy Grail.
