We are pioneers in
the science of skin care

The minds behind Vivant Skin Care have been setting the standard for the industry since 1969, when James E. Fulton, M.D., Ph.D., co-developed Retin A® and kicked off a revolution in the treatment of acne and aging that changed skin care forever.

Working alongside her husband in the lab and witnessing the excitement their achievements were generating within the dermatological community, Sara Fulton—a noted researcher and formulator herself—envisioned the creation of a line of skin care products designed to truly make a difference in people’s lives. She launched Vivant Skin Care in 1990 with a mission to provide transformative solutions for problem skin.



THE VITAMIN A
PROPIONATE DIFFERENCE

 

 



Dr. Fulton pressed on with a goal of harnessing the multiple benefits of vitamin A acid in a form that was both effective and easily tolerated by skin. The result was his patented Vitamin A Propionate, which provides all the efficacy of Retin A® without the excess irritation.

Vitamin A Propionate differs from other forms of vitamin A acid derivatives in its molecular structure. Vitamin A palmitate and other forms of over the counter retinols, have a large molecular structure, which makes them unable to penetrate skin and effectively treat photo-aging or acne.
