Vitant | Our Story

Science + Synergy.

Simplified skincare for beautiful skin. 

Every person deserves to feel beautifully confident in their own skin. Yet life can be hard at times and takes its toll on your skin. Finding the proper skincare can be a daunting experience. Whether in-store or online, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the variety of skincare ranges to choose from.

The idea for a simpler, accessible skincare range was formed after an encouraging conversation between founder Joan van Wyngaard and a doctor acquaintance. As a pharmacist passionate about research and making a difference, Joan was inspired to develop a simplistic, unisex skincare range that combines science and synergistic ingredients to get visible results without breaking the bank.


Each quality ingredient in the Vitant skincare range has been carefully selected for its anti-ageing properties that work in harmony to restore the skin’s microbiome that is imbalanced by the harsh landscape it faces daily. 


I wanted to develop a simplistic skincare range containing quality ingredients that really make a difference.
