Environ Skincare Philosophy

Environ Skincare’s Aims

  1. Environ® Skincare provides a scientifically proven, vitamin-based skincare system that helps counteract the harmful effects of the environment, pollution and stress and helps create a radiant, visibly improved complexion.
  2. Environ® Skincare corrects the chronic deficiency of vitamins, antioxidants and essential nutrients of the skin.
  3. The outcome is beautiful skin for life.

The Holy Grail Ingredient

Vitamin A is the holy grail for the long-term health and resilience of your skin – here’s why.

In the 1980s, Dr. Des Fernandes was rated one of the top five cosmetic surgeons in the world and considered a pioneer in his field. He was the first to successfully incorporate vitamin A and antioxidants into a skincare product – and when he did so, he discovered ground-breaking results.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is an essential skin nutrient that helps to fight free radicals and protect against environmentally induced skin damage. It is particularly effective for mature skin as it helps to reduce the signs of ageing, restore natural radiance and promote a healthy glow.

Vitamin A needs to be replenished every day, which is why it’s the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ Skincare philosophy. When combined with other potent ingredients, such as antioxidants and peptides, and used regularly as part of a tailored regime, long-term improvements to the skin become clearly visible.

Vitamin C

Another key vitamin for skin health is vitamin C helps to create a smoother, firmer complexion with a more even skin tone. Environ products that contain vitamin C are said to promote a healthy glow, minimise the signs of ageing and restore the skin’s natural beauty.


No matter how careful we are when it comes to our skin – life happens. Free radicals and environmental aggressors such as UV rays and pollution all have a cumulative effect on the surface of our skin, but luckily, antioxidants offer significant protective anti-ageing benefits.


Topical peptides are said to improve texture, increase firmness and reduce wrinkles by stimulating collagen production in the skin.

Environ: rooted in research

Environ’s results-driven formulas are backed by years of extensive scientific research, with new and even more effective products frequently being introduced to the range. Environ products are enhanced with high-grade ingredients that are clinically proven to repair, protect and rejuvenate skin.

Environ also has products that are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and cruelty-free.

Who is Environ For?

Environ’s products and ranges are for all skin types at any stage in life to keep skin healthy and replenish Vitamin A which is depleted every day due to external stressors, such as exposure to light.

With the right skincare products, we can restore vitamin A to optimal levels. Here’s what you need to know about how to start using vitamin A, and how the Environ Product ranges can deliver the right dose for you.

Start with a lower amount: the Environ Step-Up System 

Vitamin A needs to be slowly introduced to your skincare routine, which is why Dr Des Fernandes pioneered the first vitamin step-up system. This programme helps the skin adjust slowly over time, allowing for increased levels of vitamin A and other powerful complexion-boosting ingredients to be tolerated without causing a reaction.
