It's never too early to start caring for your skin, so invest in it now for great future returns.

The introduction of Vitamin A into the formulation of skin care products heralded a new era in the treatment of sun-damaged skin. Although some cosmetic houses were using very low doses of vitamin A in their skin care products, in the 1980s, Dr Des Fernandes, a prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon, was the first person in the world to introduce Vitamin A in high effective doses. Environ is also based on Vitamins C, E and antioxidants.  This range established Environ® as a leader in skin care.

Our climate in New Zealand depletes these vitamins and is the major cause of premature ageing of the skin, solar keratoses and skin cancer. Most of the products are fragrance and preservative free and all Environ products are free from colourants and are non-comedogenic. All Environ facials are enhanced by the use of the Ionzyme DF Machine.

The Environ® skin care range was first formulated as a result of Dr Fernandes’ misfortune when he attempted to treat the melanoma of two young, charismatic patients, who both died before they were twenty-three years old. Such a horrifying experience leaves an indelible scar on one’s life as a doctor. For this reason, he started to study the mechanism of skin cancer and the skin - and thus Environ® was born.

Environ® skin care products are manufactured under strictly controlled, state of the art laboratory conditions at the Environ® factory in Cape Town.

Dr Fernandes has specialised in the field of plastic surgery, in which he has gained the respect of his international peers. He has recenlty been named one of the top 10 Plastic Surgeons in the world.
