James E. Fulton Jr

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

James E. Fulton Jr., was born in Ottumwa, Iowa back in 1940. As a child, the family moved to California. He earned his bachelor’s and medical degree from Tulane University in New Orleans where he excelled as a swimmer. In 1969, James along with Dr. Kligman and Dr. Plewig released their study, The Effect of Chocolate on Acne Vulgaris. The study revealed that chocolate did not contribute to acne.

James and his wife Sara started the Vivant Skin Care business in 1990 in California. The company moved to South Florida in 2000. Dr. Fulton died of colon cancer in 2013, he was 73.

What you may not know about Dr. Fulton is that he was a co-inventor of Retin-A, a popular acne medication in 1969. He was a pioneer for new procedures and treatments in dermatology.

What you may not know about Dr. James E. Fulton Jr., is that Retin-A is also used for acute promyelocytic leukemia. Go figure that one out.

Good morning James Dray - how appropriate that I read this after Kathy Streib mentioning that tomorrow is chocolate day.

James Dray good morning, James... I've long known without the help of James Fulton that chocolate did not cause acne... the Mars Corporation, for which I worked, was doing studies on this for decades. That being said... I'm a big fan of retin and use retin based products to ward off skin aging.

Interesting how old wives tales are put to bed by science. Always interesting how sometimes simple cures for one thing can be dramatic help in fighting something far more serious as well.

Good morning James,

A lot of teenagers were thankful for his efforts as well as some leukemia patients.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I wonder if you would call that a side effect or just a stroke of luck...

Chocolate day is tomorrow, and we know that it did not cause acne, but did not know about Fulton. A

His discovery has benefitted countless people including myself. I've found Retin A in many of the cosmetics I use.

Hi James:

I certainly knew about Retin-A - what a wonderful discovery - but thankfully have never had to use it. I definitely am glad to hear about chocolate as it's a fave of mine!
