Who we are
We believe that skin has a life and that vitamin A is the "oxygen" it needs to look beautiful and healthy for life.
PioneerThe introduction of vitamin A into skin care formulations was a ground-breaking development. Dr Des Fernandes, rated amongst the top five plastic surgeons in the world, was a pioneer in this field in the 1980s, and was the the first to successfully use vitamin A and antioxidants in a cosmetic product and founded Environ Skin Care in 1990.
Environ’s Group Chairman and CEO Val Carstens, believed in her brother, and commenced selling these creams to friends and family prior to the formation of the company. She has built Environ Skin Care from a dream to the global success that it is today with over 140 products available in more than 70 countries.
Cornerstone IngredientSince 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.
Combined with other essential nutrients, like antioxidants and peptides, the long-term enhancement of skin becomes clearly visible. Backed by constant research, new and even more effective products are continually being introduced to the Environ range.
