The Environ product range is a powerful example of the difference one person
can make when they allow tragedy to become the catalyst to create something

Several decades ago, Dr Des Fernandes, a promiment Cape Town plastic surgeon,
was devastated when two charismatic young patients died of skin cancer in their early
twenties despite his best efforts to treat them. This tragic loss left an indelible mark
on Dr Fernandes life and career, and he began to intensively study the skin and in
particular the mechanism of skin cancer. The Environ Skincare range was born in 1990
and established Environ as a world leader in skin care in the decades that followed.

What Is Environ Known For?

Pioneering Significant Doses of Vitamin A in Skincare

The inclusion of significant levels of vitamin A in skincare formulations is common
place these days among professional skincare ranges, but it was not always so. Dr
Des Fernandes was actually the first person in the world to introduce vitamin A in high
effective doses into skincare formulations, heralding a new era in the treatment of sundamaged

Vitamin A Step-up System // AVST 1-5

Environs’ AVST unique step-up moisturiser system works by slowly increasing the
levels of vitamin A and other essential vitamins and antioxidants in your moisturiser
to ensure that your skin adapts to the active elements in a safe and healthy manner.
Beginning with an AVST Level 1 moisturiser and working up to AVST Level 5, we guide
your skin on its journey to a soft glowing appearance one step at a time.

What We Love About Environ

  • Some of our all-time favourite products in the clinic are Environ products! (See
    the RAD sunscreen and C-Quence Eye Gel below). Vitamin A is the most important
    factor in anti-aging, so we love the high, effective doses that Environ supplies. The
    skin can protest with redness and irritation if your skin is not acclimatized to Vitamin A properly, so we think the AVST step-up system is brilliant.
  • Environ is also a great range for dealing with acne. The magic of Vitamin A is
    that it regulates oil flow, so while it increases oil flow for dry, mature skins, it is also brilliant at reducing oil production on acne-prone skins.

My Environ Story ~ Marielle Haringa

Mairelle Haringa_Web Res

“I started using Environ some 6 years ago after receiving expert advice and direction from Shelley who knows my skin and what is best for it.

My skin took a little while to adjust but my pigmentation brown spots have reduced significantly since starting AVST 5.

What I like about Environ is that it is a researched product that’s highly efficacious. It’s supported by in-clinic technology such as the Visia and Sonophoresis machine. With the Visia machine you can actually see, measure and compare the changes in your skin over time. This really confirms that it works.”


Is Environ Right For You?

Environ is a very versatile range and suitable for most people. It is particularly
beneficial for women with sun-damaged skin, which to be honest, is most women in the
Bay of Plenty!

If anti-aging treatment and prevention is important to you, then we highly recommend
Environs’ AVST step-up system. If your skin is challenged with acne, a combination of
the AVST moisturisers with cleansers and spot-treatments from the B-Active range can
be very effective.

Environ is at the higher end of our skincare range but slightly cheaper than
Dermaviduals. It is affordable for most professional women and offers a lifetime of
results for your investment.

Three Environ Products we Love

AVST 1 (of 5) ~ Price range: $79 – $112.70

This where it all begins! The AVST 1 – 5 moisturisers contain vitamin A and
antioxidants including vitamins E, vitamin C, Green Tea Extract, Honeybush and
Rooibos Tea Extracts, Resveratrol and Beta-Carotene. AVST 1 is the introductory
moisturiser for the AVST step-up system containing the lowest concentration of vitamin
A, C and antioxidants in the range – the safest starting-point for new clients. The unique
emulsion assists in rebalancing and moisturising the skin.

C-Quence Eye Gel ~ $118.50
I can’t speak highly enough of this product. I have found it to be the best for me
personally and many of my clients swear by it. The light gel formula contains a variety
of vitamins, antioxidants and peptides to help improve the appearance of fine lines and
assist in moisturising the eye area. It has an action like Botox, though much gentler,
relaxing the muscles around your eyes so you don’t get that unwanted crinkling effect.
You can use this particular eye cream in conjunction with any of our other skincare
ranges. ~ Shelley

RAD Suncreen ~ $56
We highly recommend you wear a physical sunscreen on your face, neck and
décolletage, and in fact the whole body. One of our favourite (and most popular)
physical sunscreens is Environ RAD. RAD contains titanium oxide as a sun reflectant
and it also has a free radical scavenging system consisting of the antioxidant vitamins
(C & E) to combat the effects of the sun and pollution to the skin. CLICK HERE to read
