Environ skin care has been developed by a well-renowned plastic surgeon named Dr Fernandes. Born in South Africa, he understood the devastating effects that sun damage had on the skin.
As he worked on many skin cancer patients, he decided to pioneer a range of skin care products that contained high enough doses of vitamins, mainly vitamin A to make measurable effects on the quality of the skin as well as the overall protection of the skin against environmental factors. From this research, Environ was born.
Vitamin A and its benefits in cosmeceutical.
Extensive medical research and tries have shown that Vitamin A has a corrective effect on the skin. Smoothing and softening and protecting it from the harmful effects of U.V radiation and free radical damage. It most important role is to normalise the skin and to promote the production of healthy collagen and elastin and the moisture content, leading to younger-looking skin.
80% of photodamage is done by the age of eighteen. Environ is recommended from the age of ten years onwards to prevent this. As well as a preventative measure against skin damage from a young age, results are noticeable within a few weeks of use. Also beneficial for Rosacea and acne skin types.
