Skin Revitalizer

Allergan offers Vivité™, a skin care line that revitalizes and shields the skin to reduce the signs of aging. Vivité features GLX Technology™, a blend of hydrating glycolic acid and natural antioxidants that renew the skin and enhance its natural production of hyaluronic acid, stimulating epidermal growth factor and collagen. The products contain glycolic compound concentrations of up to 20%, which is safe for at-home use because it undergoes a proprietary process called partial neutralization. Partial neutralization optimizes the pH balance to match the natural pH of the skin and allows the glycolic acid to be released during an extended period of time to provide the benefits of higher concentrations of glycolic acid with minimized skin irritation. The skin care line includes Exfoliating Facial Cleanser, Daily Antioxidant Facial Serum, Night Renewal Facial Cream, and Revitalizing Eye Treatment.
