The Man Behind the Brand, Jimmy Wong
Jimmy Wong, the chemical guru behind the formulation of Viva Health’s skincare line, has a background in mechanical and electronic engineering. Having worked on medical and spa equipment for many years before starting Viva Health, Jimmy understood the medical aesthetic industry well. Seeing the high cost and the deficiencies in the industry, Jimmy knew and saw a gap for better products.
However, it wasn’t until his teenage daughter was faced with a serious acne condition, he used his experience and knowledge to create a formula that would help her and eventually became the foundation of the Viva Health skincare line. Viva Health skincare is unique and effective using leading-edge formulations that focus on using a clean water system, combined with western and eastern herbs and technology.
Jimmy is proud that his formulation has helped his daughter and is now being used by many others who are benefiting from his research and hard work.
