The Pioneer – Dr Des Fernandes
Beauty Begins with Passion
Every Company has intrinsic qualities that define them from the beginning. Imprinted in Environ’s DNA is human passion, one man’s deep desire for radically effective skincare. Environ was born in 1980 when founder Dr Des Fernandes, a very successful world-renowned, Plastic Surgeon was deeply moved by the deaths of two patients from skin cancer in their early twenties. Dr Fernandes became passionate about raising the quality of skincare and began his own research into the function of the skin. This is when he discovered the importance of Vitamin A for skin functionality. Dr Fernandes was the first person to pioneer Vitamin A into skincare in the world. Environ continues to embody this passion employing pioneering scientific research and unrelenting development. Many skincare companies use the same research for their own product ranges, but none have the same experience, the history or …. the passion.
“I wanted to make something that would help the skin to actually be better, not merely feel or appear better. That’s why Vitamin A is so remarkable because it works on the DNA, and the skin needs Vitamin A all the time. The longer people use it, the healthier their skin will look, says Dr Fernandes.”
The Environ Philosophy
Environ is all about giving back and protecting our skin’s barrier, after all, it is our largest organ. We should never strip our skin with harsh chemicals, peels or abrasive exfoliants. By doing this, immature skin cells are exposed to environmental toxins, pollution, UV rays, free radicals long before nature intended or equipped them to cope with such hazards. The truth is that cells are shocked by this sudden exposure and cannot perform their function of protection because they themselves require protection from mature cells that have now been stripped away. Not only that, but the inevitable exposure to UV light makes your skin more likely to become photo-damaged and develop cancers. Harsh peeling systems should always be avoided.
Environ, however, can effectively treat different skin concerns with their A-Mazing Vitamin Step-Up System combined with using their own Cool Peel Technology using low PH Lactic acids which don’t compromise the epidermis and is safe for all Fitzpatrick (the colour of the skin). We also use micro exfoliants and other acids such as AHA’s, BHA’s, Peptides and Antioxidants in our products to maximise results in a sensible manner. It may take a bit longer to achieve your desired results but it will be worth the wait. Your skin is your personal protection system, given to you by nature. Treat it with gentleness and respect.
Environ’s Moto: Start Low, Go Slow
Vitamin A – Benefits
The introduction of Vitamin A to skincare was groundbreaking and is now the cornerstone ingredient in Environ’s skincare range along with many other essential skin Vitamins B, C, E, Skin Peptides and Antioxidants just to name a few. Through intensive research, Dr Fernandes discovered the essential role Vitamin A plays in skin health and therefore he created the World’s first Vitamin Step-Up System using different strengths and types of Vitamin A. It is the most essential ingredient for your skin that forms the basis of a normal healthy and well-functioning Dermis and Epidermis. Vitamin A:
- Restores a healthy barrier function by improving the natural moisturising factors leaving the skin looking hydrated and refreshed.
- Rejuvenates your skin, addressing skin aging, lines and wrinkles.
- Helps support skin immunity by potentiating the Langerhans cells which are defence cells that protect us from pathogens encountered via the skin.
- Promotes Collagen & Elastin for firmer-looking skin.
- Improves problematic skin conditions by normalising sebaceous gland activity, leaving the skin more balanced.
- Helps stabilize pigmentation distribution, leaving the skin more evenly toned in appearance.
- Treats sun damage, redness and helps with the prevention of skin cancers.
- Improves Scarred skins.
Environ – Experts in Product Penetration
At Environ, we understand that the skin’s own natural structure poses the greatest challenge in allowing active ingredients to reach the deeper layers of the skin in order to deliver the best results.
The pioneering of Environ’s lonzyme DF Machine combines two sophisticated technologies using low-frequency Sonophoresis (sound waves) and pulsed iontophoresis (electrical current). Dual electro-sonic technology creates tiny pathways in the skin to assist in delivering more essential nutrients which break through the skin’s own natural waterproof barrier so active ingredients get to where they are needed most, providing faster and effective results. This DF machine was specifically designed for Environ Skincare Facial treatments.
