About Vivier

Vivier's Story

Jess Vivier founded Vivier Pharma in 1997. With a background in chemistry and over 30 years in the pharmaceutical industry, he believed that the best skin care products must have strong science, innovative ingredients and rigorous testing in order to deliver exceptional results. 
Jess Vivier formulated and patented the highest quality stable Vitamin C serums with L-Ascorbic Acid (USP). In order for products to be the most effective they must also penetrate deep into the skin. This led to the discovery and creation of our IntraDermal System (IDS) technology targeting visible signs of ageing for a more beautiful you.
Most recently, Vivier Pharma launched a first of its kind ingredient called Polyamine-DAB, clinically proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and increase skin’s firmness and volume. Polyamine-DAB also plays an important role in the prevention of hypertrophic scars.


Just like you, your skin is unique. Your skin can change depending on the season, hormones, genetics or many other factors. It is important to understand your skin type to determine the right products for you.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is a dull, rough complexion that lacks radiance and hydration. Decreased levels of moisture and sebum create fine lines and wrinkles.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is just what the name implies, skin that is a combination of both dry and oily types. Combination skin is prone to fine lines, wrinkles, shininess and clogged pores at the same time.

Oily skin is characterized by an increased amount of lipids on the surface due to overactive sebaceous glands. Oily skin is shiny and thick, often with enlarged pores, is prone to blemishes and congestion.
