Celebrating 20 years of soulful science and results-driven skincare

A post to fete our anniversary

It’s 2022, and we’re looking forward to celebrating a new year and an important milestone, our 20th anniversary. It’s been said that you can’t move forward without honoring the past, and the world sure looked different in 2002. 

 There was no social media. And the oldest millennials were turning 22. Frosted lipstick, trucker hats, and low-waisted jeans were trending. Apple released its second-generation iPod, which held a then-whopping 20 GB of storage space. And the Sanyo SCP-5300 became the first cell phone to have a built-in camera. And just like that, life changed forever.

 It was also the year StriVectin burst onto the skincare market with a unique blend of clinical science, unparalleled proof, and a bold, “better than botox” attitude that ushered in a new generation of skincare. Since then, we’ve delivered real results for every skin type, tone, and age. We've built better skin barriers, delivered real results for every skin type, tone, and age, and prioritized skin health with a positive approach to aging and changing skin.

Along the way, StriVectin has become the choice for people who want to be strong, confident, enduring, empowered, and seen - at every age. There’s a lot to be said for standing the test of time, and a lot happens in 20 years, let alone 20 minutes, in this brave new world. Today, we celebrate our many success stories and share in our triumphs.


We’ve always been driven by science and breaking barriers; we’ve always played by our own rules and run our race. Because of our science-first approach to skincare, you can always expect real results and unique solutions to common skin problems with an unmatched love of proof, truth, and, of course, science.

 From our  iconic game-changers like SD Advanced™ PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate, our first product ever and the category creating TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream PLUS, to some of our newer fan favorites like Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum, we strive to provide skincare solutions for every age.

 No mention of our products would be complete without honoring our next-level Niacin, NIA-114™. Discovered by Drs. Myron and Elaine Jacobson, our patented form of Niacin is in every formula we create and is clinically proven to strengthen skin’s barrier and supercharge the performance of other powerful ingredients.

 And if you’re looking to hit refresh or discover something new for your new year routine, we thought we’d share a high-level description of all our collections, with something to suit just about everyone:

 If you’re looking for visibly smoother, more youthful-looking skin and reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, try our Anti-Wrinkle Collection.

 If you want to grapple with gravity and visibly tone, sculpt, and tighten from head to toe, try our Tighten & Lift Collection.

If you are a modern multi-tasker looking for ease, try our high-impact, do-it-all Multi-Action Collection.

 If you are looking for dramatic results and a can-do collection, go with our Advanced Retinol. It’s super potent, limits irritation, and offers big-time results for multiple signs of aging with this gold standard ingredient.

For a game-changing glow, check out our Advanced Resurfacing Collection. Packed with acids, these formulas resurface the look of dull, rough skin for a brighter, more even-toned complexion.

 If you are ISO hydration, discover our Advanced Hydration Collection. Powered by Hyaluronic Acid, skin is visibly plump, moisturized, and glowing.

For some much-needed daily defense, our Advanced SPF Collection of reef-safe sunscreens is formulated to protect against UVA/UVB rays and environmental and blue light pollution. And good news- it’s available in three finishes suitable for all skin types and tones.

Most of all, we want to thank all of you. Cheers to all our fans who choose our products and demand truth, not tricks, science, not spin, and proof over promises when it comes to their skincare. We know the best is yet to come, from fan favorites to iconic super role models. Here’s to the next 20 years of science with soul.  The future has never looked better, brighter, and bolder. Stay tuned for new launches and celebratory promotions all year long.

Did you know?

The StriVectin brand gets its name from “Striae distensae” (aka stretch mark) because our first product was the iconic “stretch-mark cream turned anti-wrinkle phenomenon” called StriVectin-SD. StriVectin is pronounced “stri-VEC-tin” (syllables rhyme with “eye”, “neck”, “chin”).
