About Environ® Skin Care
We believe that skin has a life and that vitamin A is the “oxygen” it needs to look beautiful and healthy for life. It is for this reason that we actively pursue skin care science to skilfully and consistently develop best-in-class, scientifically researched and developed products that work with skin. Our unique and highly effective Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ helps skin to become gradually more comfortable with increasing dosages of vitamin A and other ingredients thereby reducing the likelihood of a skin reaction. It is for this reason that Environ Skin Care products should only be purchased from trained and authorised Skin Care Professionals. We believe that this approach will ensure complete consumer satisfaction as the power of beautiful science always requires the consultation and product recommendation of a Skin Care Professional. The introduction of vitamin A into skin care formulations was a ground-breaking development in skin care. Dr Des Fernandes, rated amongst the top five plastic surgeons in the world, was a pioneer in this field in the 1980s. He was the first to use vitamin A in high enough doses that help counteract the harmful effects of the environment, pollution and stress and create radiant, visibly improved skin. Since he founded Environ in 1990, vitamin A has become the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ skin care philosophy. It is an essential skin nutrient that has to be replenished every day for skin to appear healthier and more resilient.
