Pharmaceutical Skin Care – A Recipe for Results

Posted by Ingrie Williams on

Do you recall the best cup of coffee you’ve ever tasted? Chances are it was made a little differently than your average brew. Perhaps the beans were harvested from an exclusive locale, or it was finished with a swirl of cinnamon. Either way, the selection of ingredients and mix of concentrations in that cup were carefully considered to blend together perfectly – and the same is true of a pharmaceutical grade skin care formula. 


Always committed to deliver The Beauty of Results, Vivier has combined the highest quality ingredients with innovation, science and technology for over 20 years. The IntraDermal System (IDS) used in all the serums (that game-changing target step of any routine), allows the highest quality active ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin maximizing results. Compared to over-the-counter options you will also find higher concentrations of active ingredients in pharmaceutical grade formulas which can increase efficacy. Whether your skin is dry and dull, prone to dark spots or in need of acne help, these are the top ingredients that can make a difference.


For brighter skin: Vitamin C USP

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant ingredient and claims the title as the most studied in skin care. By protecting skin from free radical damage, it can help to improve your skin tone and texture, making it brighter, smoother, and softer. Along with sun protection, it is considered an essential ingredient for preventing and correcting premature aging. Among the different forms of Vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid is the most sought after for its efficacy. Using a 99.9% pure and potent L-ascorbic acid that meets the standards of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), Vivier offers the hardworking active in various concentrations so there’s a match for every skin type. Going a step further with a patented formulation, the Vitamin C is encapsulated to maximize stability and prevent oxidation (which degrades the active) while also allowing it to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis. In a clinical study, Vivier C E Peptides Serum was shown to deliver four times more Vitamin Cto the skin compared to a leading Vitamin C serum.

For fewer dark spots: Hydroquinone USP

If you’re serious about treating mild to severe hyperpigmentation then you need to know about hydroquinone. It is the gold standard ingredient used by dermatologists for reducing dark spots, but you won’t find it at your local beauty retailer in Canada. Designed for use as a 12-week treatment that leads to glowing results, the Vivier Hyperpigmentation Program (2% HQ) offers the highly active ingredient in a serum and cream that work together to break up discolouration, refine skin’s texture and boost overall brightening.

For less breakouts: Benzoyl Peroxide USP

Excess sebum and dead skin cells can clog pores but common acne bacteria in the skin can make your complexion prone to blemishes, too. In that case you should call on benzoyl peroxide, the go-to topical ingredient for treating acne is renowned for its anti-bacterial and gentle exfoliating properties. Vivier Acne Treatment Lotion contains 5% benzoyl peroxide USP that can help to clear and prevent the formation of new pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. The versatile formulation can be used on the face and body as part of a daily routine, or as a spot treatment for occasional breakouts.

Whatever your skin may need, the best results will always result from a complete routine and a pharmaceutical grade formula can accelerate results where OTC options idle. Having earned a long-standing history of being recommended by dermatologists across Canada, the Vivier lineup adheres to pharmaceutical level standards and Health Canada regulations while remaining dedicated to ingredient potency and purity in every batch.
