Who is SKNV?

Over the past 9 years, SKNV has redefined dermatology with innovative customized medications offering over 120 formulations covering an array of skin conditions such as acne, melasma, rosacea, and more. Manufactured in an FDA-Registered 503B Outsourcing Facility, the company’s medications are prescribed by over 4,000 dermatology providers across the U.S.

When was SKNV founded?

Founded in March 2014, SKNV has been dedicated to improving healthcare delivery by enhancing the accessibility of essential Rx dermatology medications and reducing dependency on complex supply chains.

What differentiates SKNV from a traditional compounding company?

Being an FDA-Registered 503B Outsourcing Facility, SKNV adheres to stringent state and federal regulations. Being a 503B, it is a clear choice and advantage for providers focused on patient convenience and Rx safety. Traditional compounders are not regulated by the FDA.
