There is no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to achieving healthy, beautiful skin. Since ancient times, people have used cosmetics to try to improve their skin and to minimise the effects of ageing while offering the hopeful user the promise of being a 'miracle in a jar'. Until recently, most creams remained simple, old-fashioned moisturisers in progressively more modern and expensive packaging.
The introduction of vitamin A into skincare formulations was a ground breaking moment, because it offered benefits to sun damaged skin. Prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes was a pioneer in his field. He was one of the first to use Vitamin A in high enough doses for a genuine measurable effect on the quality of the skin.
Dr Fernandes became interested in the mechanics of the skin. Through his research he discovered the essential role of Vitamin A in skin health and became determined to create treatments and products that would help maintain healthy skin, especially as the incidence of sun related damage grows worldwide.
Out of this the Environ range and Company were born. The business has developed an extensive distribution network in South Africa and over 50 countries around the world, the efficacy of its products making it one of the cult favourites among those in the know; Environ is acclaimed by international beauty editors, skincare therapists and dermatologists.
At its heart, Environs mission is to provide proven, cutting-edge technology and sound skin science principles in creating skincare for women and men from youth to maturity, as well as children, all skin types and ethnicities.

Dr Fernandes is world-renowned for his investigations into reducing visible signs of skin ageing; this has led him to create preparations with essential vitamins for skin health, as well as two mechanical devices that enhance the effects of these treatments.

Environ LACM Cool Peels, Lac-Pam Gel Peels and TCA Peels
Environ Peels have little to no downtime, no burning and minimal redness. It really is your best alternative to glycolic and harsh chemical peels.
Environ peels are based on the physiology of skin and that it should be protected and treated extremely well. If the skin is aggressively peeled, this can disrupt the skin's natural barrier, which can lead to water being lost from your skin. When water is lost from your skin, it opens the door for harmful toxins such as pollution to enter your skin more easily. The Environ peels remove the excess layer of skin called the stratum-corneum and maintains the water-proofing barrier qualities of the skin. Environ peels are ideal for hydrating and refining the skin. The Peels repair and encourage exfoliation, helping to reveal fresh and youthful-looking skin.
Environ have a variety of peeling systems, using acidic creams and gels instead of using acid solutions. These peels preserve as much of the epidermis as possible while at the same time, getting the safest effective concentration of hydronium ions into the dermis. These peels are designed to preserve the architecture of the skin, simultaneously stimulating the fibroblasts in the dermis to increase the quantity of collagen.
