Vivite: GLX Technology
Vivite formulations feature state-of-the-art GLX Technology, which consists of a powerful formula matrix that infuses the skin with proven glycolic acid formulas, potent antioxidants and active natural extracts for optimized synergistic skin rejuvenation effects. The perfect blends of these three types of ingredients help to enhance the skin's natural production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and epidermal growth factor; all of which are important components of the skin and help to maintain skin integrity and health. Since glycolic acids have the smallest molecular size out of all the alpha hydroxyl acids, this allows for greater penetration deep into the layers of the skin.
GLX Technology also features a specialized process called partial neutralization, which transforms the pH of the glycolic acid molecules to match the skin's natural pH enabling better delivery and causing less irritation to the skin. This process also extends the duration of the glycolic acids in the skin, which allows them to exert longer, more optimal effects. In addition, the potent antioxidants in GLX Technology help to protect the skin from environmental factors such as attack from harmful free radicals, which can prematurely age the skin.
Core Vivite Products
The core Vivite System consists of a simple regimen of just four products to be used as the daily skincare routine. Despite the simplistic regimen, each of the products in the regimen is formulated to exert maximum skincare benefits with minimum skin irritation. The products in the Vivite System include:
- Vivite Exfoliating Facial Cleanser containing 15% glycolic compound, salicylic acid and exfoliating microbeads to cleanse, smooth and refine the skin;
- Vivite Daily Antioxidant Facial Serum containing 15% glycolic compound, green tea, pomegranate, chamomile and aloe to moisturize and protect the skin;

- Vivite Revitalizing Eye Treatment containing 10% glycolic compound, caffeine, peptides and light-reflecting interference pearls to reduce puffiness around the eyes and decrease the appearance of crow's feet.
Vivite: Clinical Results
The beneficial effects of the Vivite skincare regimen are clinically proven. A clinical study of the Vivite skincare regimen was conducted with 22 women between the ages of 35 and 55 showing the effects of mild to moderate photodamage (rough, dry facial skin; fine lines and wrinkles). They followed the study regimen for 3 weeks. The results after just 3 weeks showed:
- 22% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- 36% increase in skin hydration/moisture content
- 54% improvement in skin smoothness
- 65% decrease in dryness
Vivite: Anti-Oxidant Ingredients
The Vivite System is also rich in active botanical extracts, including olive leaf extract, pomegranate, and green tea for natural antioxidant protection; aloe, chamomile, and wild mango butter for effective hydration; and licorice to reduce hyperpigmentation. The well-known antioxidant powerhouse vitamins C and E are also included in the products for maximum anti-aging effects. Moreover, the Vivite System also include technologically advanced ingredients such as superoxide dismutase to provide extra antioxidant protection and neutralize free radicals, peptides to stimulate collagen and elastin production to tighten and firm the skin, gentle microbeads to enhance exfoliation and skin renewal, and interference pearls to reflect and diffuse light as well as minimize the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
