Dr Des Fernandes, a world-renowned doctor, surgeon, scientist and pioneer,he was part of the worlds first heart transplant team, he was voted one of the top 10 surgeons in the world.
The Environ Skincare range of products was first formulated as a result of Dr.Fernandes’ misfortune when he attempted to treat the melanoma of two young patients, who both died before they were twenty-three years old. This unfortunate experience left an indelible scar on him and for this reason, he started to study the mechanism of skin cancer and the effects of topical application of vitamins, especially vitamin A, on the skin. Thus, Environ was born!
Dr. Fernandes is the pioneer in skin needling or collagen induction therapy. He has lectured at many Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Congresses and Dermatology meetings throughout the world.
“I wanted to make something that makes the skin actually be better, not merely feel or appear better” – Dr Des Fernandes
Environ is based on active ingredients which provide the best penetration. By using science to formulate these products, environ contains the most permissible level of vitamin A in a cosmetic product.
Environ helps reduce harmful effects of the environment, stress, pollution to the skin and instead creates a visibly improved, radiant skin. It will also correct the chronic deficiency of vitamins, antioxidants and essential nutrient of the skin leaving you with long term beautiful skin.
It has a unique step-up system which allows the skin to climatise to different levels of vitamin A. It is a result driven brand.
Envrion aims to be one of the safest, most effective skin care ranges in the world using the highest quality raw materials to manufacture the products.
“We believe that skin has a life, and that vitamin A is the ‘oxygen’ it needs to look healthy and beautiful. It is for this reason that we actively pursue skincare to skilfully and consistently develop the best-in-class, scientifically researched and developed products that work with the skin”.
Due to constant research Environ use only the best active ingredients.
Vitamin A is the main ingredient in the Environ skincare range and has to be replaced each day for a youthful, healthy appearance. Vitamin A belongs to a family of organic chemicals called ‘retinoids. Vitamin A is generally used as the ester form (e.g. retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate), but also as Betacarotene and retinol which aid to prevent further and improve established photo-ageing as well as hydrate the skin. Vitamin A has long been known as the ‘skin vitamin’, but only recently has attention been focused on it as a ‘normaliser’ of skin and an indispensable factor in the maintenance of healthy epithelial growth and maturation. Vitamin A has various properties such as
- Normalises melanin production – repairing and normalising pigmentation
- Protects and potentiates Langerhans cells – boosts your skin immunity
- Stimulates glycosaminoglycans – stimulates and locks in moisture to plump and smoothen the skin
- Stimulates fibroblasts; collagen & elastin – stimulates collagen and compacts elastin
- Normalises sebaceous glands – normalises sebum/balances oil
- Normalises cell differentiation – normalising skin/ repairing cell
- Stimulates cell turnover – naturally exfoliates skin
- Compacts stratum corneum – increasing protection
- Thickens epidermis – plumps & strengthens skin
- Stimulates blood circulations – feed with vits & nutrients, removes toxins
The long-term improvement of skin becomes clearly visible with vitamin A along with other important nutrients such as peptides and antioxidants.
Vit C (Ascorbic Acid) is a water-soluble antioxidant. It is an extremely important antioxidant as our bodies are composed of approximately 70% water. Vitamin C and E work together. Vit C (ascorbic acid) besides being an antioxidant in the water phase of the body cells, is essential for protection of the lipoproteins of cell membranes. This is because it re-cycles vitamin E once it has been used up in extinguishing a free radical. Vitamin C enables vitamin E to become and antioxidant again. Vit C also has a very important benefit in reducing sunburn. It has the advantage of being absorbed into the cell and cannot be washed off, possibly making it effective in reducing sunburn for many days after absorption. This is also true of Vit E and beta-carotene. Vitamin C has many more properties such as
- Antioxidant protection
- Stimulates & strengthens collagen
- Strengthens capillary walls – reduces redness
- Anit-inflammatory – slowly for reactive skin
- Clarity – brightens and lightens
- Photo-protective – naturally boosts SPF
- Inhibits tyrosinase/melanin activity – reduces pigmentation
- Enhances vitamins A & E – works harder & faster together
- Increases hydration
- Accelerates healing

Why do we wrinkle anyway?
As we get older, key factors that keep our skin young and smooth decline, such as collagen and elastin. These are affected by internal and external factors such as sun exposure, smoking, diet, toxins etc. Just 1% annual decline in collagen levels causes a loss of skin strength and promotes the appearance of wrinkles. While the process of ageing is natural, the introduction of an effective skincare regime, can help to minimise the appearance and longer term effects.
