The Environ Mission
Environ a beautiful skin for a lifetime
Since ancient times, people have used cosmetics to try to improve their skins and hide 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 a progressively more modern and expensive packaging.
The introduction of vitamin A into skincare formulations was a groundbreaking moment, because it offered benefits to sun-damaged skin. Prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon Dr. Des Fernandes was a pioneer in this field. In the 1980’s, 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.
Through his research, he discovered the essential role of vitamin A in skin health and he became determined to create treatments that would maintain healthy skins, especially as the incidence of sun related skin disorders grows worldwide.
At its heart, Environ’s 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.
It is never too late to start caring for your skin so invest in it now for great future returns.
FABULOUS VITAMIN A
The cornerstone of Environ treatments is vitamin A. Extensive medical research and trials have shown that vitamin A has a corrective effect on the skin, smoothing it, softening and protecting it from the effects of ultraviolet radiation and radicals. Its most important activity is to normalise the skin. It promotes the production of healthy collagen and elastin and improves the skin’s natural moisture, leading to healthy, younger looking skin.
Vitamin intensive treatments
The Environ Ionzyme DF Machine
Specific Environ products used in these treatments contain the optimum strengths of vitamin A and C, plus additional growth factors, to make the skin more resilient, radiant and help to treat blemishes such as patchy pigmentation, scarring and pimples.
The Ionzyme DF Machine enhances the penetration of these products through the skin, a crucial step because the skin has a natural waterproof barrier that hinders the penetration of vitamins. It overcomes this with two tried and tested methods:
IONTOPHORESIS – an electrical current facilitates greater penetration of vitamins into the skin. It is used for larger surface areas such as the face and neck. This will enable the skin to look and feel younger within two or three treatments.
SONOPHORFESIS – involves the use of sound waves to transport the vitamin molecules through the skin. The sound used is the same sound made by dolphins, which produces better penetration through the skin than conventional ultrasound. It is used on areas such as the upper lip and character lines around the eyes, on scar tissue and on pigmentation marks.
Both methods can be combined, where necessary, for intensive treatments.

The perfect antidote to dry, lacklustre skin, this intensive treatment deeply hydrates while plumping and firming the skin. Based on Hyaluronic Acid, which holds a 1000 times its own weight in water, it helps to reduce find lines caused by dehydration and increase the plumpness of the dermis, resulting in moisturised, glowing skin.
