Only VIVITÉ® has GLX TechnologyTM, an ultra-charged formula matrix that helps infuse the skin with a glycolic compound and antioxidants to help optimize skin rejuvenation. This fusion of a glycolic compound with natural antioxidants helps promote the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and epidermal growth factor, all of which are essential to the integrity and health of skin.
The glycolic compound in GLX TechnologyTM is the most effective exfoliant available. In fact, glycolics have the smallest molecules of all the alpha hydroxy acids. It’s their small molecule size that enables greater skin penetration. In addition, a process called partial neutralization allows for a high delivery of glycolic compound to the skin with minimal skin irritation. Partial neutralization also extends the duration of action of the compound in the skin, so that skin receives a secondary glycolic effect.
The antioxidants in GLX TechnologyTM help protect skin from the harmful effects of environmental stress factors known as free radicals, which can attack and prematurely age skin.
