Cosmeceutical skin care products represent a marriage between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Like cosmetics, cosmeceuticals are topically applied, but they contain ingredients that influence the biological function of the skin. Cosmeceuticals improve appearance, but they do so by delivering nutrients necessary for healthy skin. Cosmeceuticals typically claim to improve skin tone, texture, and radiance, while reducing wrinkling. Cosmeceuticals are the fastest-growing segment of the natural personal care industry. Consumers are always interested in maintaining a youthful appearance, and as the global population’s median age increases, this market is increasingly expanding.
Cosmeceuticals are not subject to review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the term cosmeceutical is not recognized by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Although cosmetics and cosmeceuticals are tested for safety, testing to determine whether beneficial ingredients actually live up to a manufacturer’s claims is not mandatory. In general, vitamins, herbs, various oils, and botanical extracts may be used in cosmeceuticals, but the manufacturer may not claim that these products penetrate beyond the skin’s surface layers or that they have druglike or therapeutic effects. For cosmetic labels, no division between active ingredients and other ingredients is required; they are all listed together. (taken from Medscape)

VIVITÉ® is clinically shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and the only skin care line to include proprietary GLX Technology™, which creates a highly specialized blend of hydrating glycolic acid and powerful, natural antioxidants.
Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, but also can be made synthetically. Because of its smaller molecular size, glycolic acid is believed to be more effective for skin care than other alpha hydroxy acids. When used correctly, glycolic acid can improve the look and feel of skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and brown or age spots.
The VIVITÉ® skin care line includes the following products:
- Exfoliating Facial Cleanser containing 15 percent glycolic compound, salicylic acid and exfoliating microbeads to cleanse, smooth, and refine skin
- Daily Antioxidant Facial Serum containing 15 percent glycolic compound, green tea, pomegranate, chamomile, and aloe to moisturize and protect skin
- Night Renewal Facial Cream containing 20 percent glycolic compound, vitamin C, vitamin E, and superoxide distmutase to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Revitalizing Eye Treatment containing 10 percent glycolic compound, caffeine, peptides, and light-reflecting interference pearls to reduce puffiness around the eyes and decrease the appearance of crows feet
- Daily Cleanser is mild enough for regular use to loosen surface oil and other impurities from the skin and gently exfoliates while applying proven anti-irritants and rich humectants to leave skin fresh and moist.
