Our Beginnings

Our Story

Our name Exuviance is an English verb, which means to exfoliate, to peel off, shed off, reveal, or transform. Exuviance® Professional transforms your skin, to reveal a new layer, a new younger, youthful looking and feeling you.

Our story began in 1974, thanks to the vision and passion of our creators, Dr. Eugene J. Van Scott and Dr. Ruey J. Yu, who are among the founding fathers of modern dermatology. This was when they made the ground-breaking discovery that Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are not only beneficial in the treatment of dermatological conditions such as psoriasis and ichthyosis, but are also effective in stimulating prematurely aged or damaged skin to actually rejuvenate itself, thereby revolutionizing the treatment of aging skin. Their passion and vision led the doctors to continue discovering more advanced scientific innovations through the discovery of a new generation of Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) and Bionics, plus Acetyl Amino Acids and Sugars, naturally occurring compounds that deliver antiaging benefits without the irritation and redness often associated with antiaging ingredients. More recent discoveries include ingredients that help lift and firm the skin, such as CitraFill® and patented AminoFil®. Our continuous R&D investment and advancements in the field leading to scientific innovations have resulted in many significant U.S. and foreign patents. We have also published high impact articles in peer-reviewed medical journals.

Our founders created the category of antiaging AHAs and PHAs, internationally recognized for revolutionizing the treatment of aging skin and creating the antiaging skincare category.

Exuviance® Professional is available exclusively from authorized distributors, distributors’ on-line shops, or authorized and certified professional aesthetic clinics and spas, where professional aestheticians expertly offer bespoke consultations and recommendations.
