Dr Des Fernandes is rated amongst the top five plastic surgeons in the world, specialising in burns and skin cancer patients, was a pioneer in the field in the 1980s.

Through intensive research he discovered the essential role vitamin A plays in skin health.When looking at cells of patients with cancer he noticed that they all had one thing in common, they were deficient in vitamin A. He became determined to create a skin care range that would help improve and maintain the appearance of healthy skin.

The introduction of Vitamin A into skin care formulations was a ground-breaking development in skin care, with him being the first to use vitamin A in high enough doses to help counteract everyday free radicals and create the appearance of radiant, visibly improved skin.

Dr Des, founder and scientific director of Environ, says: "aging skin is a direct result of sun induced vitamin A deficiency. Correct the deficiency and you'll have more radiant-looking skin".

Therefore, he designed Environ to help correct the visible effects of the deficiency of vitamin A in 1990. Since then vitamin A has become the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ philosophy. All other vitamin A based products and research are now based upon Dr Des' initial research, being at the forefront at the industry.

The formulae of Environ are entirely based on the need to help replenish all the essential skin nutrients lost by exposure to the sun and environmental factors, and at the same time moisturise the skin's appearance. The products have been specially formulated to combat and relieve the harmful effects of free radicals, these include; today's harsh environmental changes, modern-day effects of social and work stresses and poor diet.

Therefore, vitamin A combined with other essential nutrients, like antioxidants and peptides, the long-term enhancement of the appearance of the skin becomes clearly visible. Backed by constant research, new and even more effective products continually being introduced to the Environ range.

It has been proven that sufficient vitamin A:

  • Promotes the effects of the skin's natural moisturising factor and gives it a radiant glow
  • Strengthens  the effects of the skin's outer layer to keep it looking firm
  • Stimulates the production of natural protein to keep the skin looking healthy 
  • Supports the effect of skin's immune system and helps prevent the appearance of breakouts
  • Assists in reducing the likelihood of the development of potential skin cancers, giving you greater peace of mind

The core Environ skin care products in the Essential Care segment are based on Environ's own Vitamin STEP-SYSTEM™. Environ's range of moisturisers in the Essential Skin Care segment contain a series of products with increasing amounts of vitamin A as well as other vitamins and antioxidants.

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 Environ Skin Care products should only be purchased from trained and authorised Environ Skin Care Professionals. 

The moisturisers in the Environ Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ ranges have been awarded the Swiss Vitamin Institute logo which verifies that the products tested contain the vitamin strength declared and the consumer gets a quality product with the stated active vitamin content which fulfils the promise of real results.

On this exciting journey you will notice your skin becoming progressively smoother, younger and more radiant.

Maintain it by continuing with you Environ skin care regime. If you allow it to lapse you will simply need to restart your routine at a lower level. If you have lapsed for longer than a year, we recommend you start at the lowest level.

Start low and go slow with the Environ Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ and consult you Skin Care Professional before progressing from one Step-Up level to the next, as there are many factors to consider before stepping-up which our professionals at Triangles can help with.

The products are only manufactured from the highest quality ingredients and fresh, active vitamins. To ensure that our products can be used by people with allergies, we make most of the Environ range without adding any preservatives or perfumes. With Environ being one of the few ranges to do this.
