We believe that skin has a life and that vitamin A is the “oxygen” it needs to look beautiful and healthy for life. It is for this reason that we actively pursue skin care science to skilfully and consistently develop best-in-class, scientifically researched and developed products that work with skin.
The introduction of vitamin A into skin care formulations was a ground-breaking development in skin care. Dr Des Fernandes, rated amongst the top five plastic surgeons in the world, was a pioneer in this field in the 1980s. He was the first to use vitamin A in high enough doses that help counteract the harmful effects of the environment, pollution and stress, and create radiant, visibly improved skin.
Through intensive research he discovered the essential role vitamin A plays in skin health. He became determined to create a skin care range that would maintain healthy skin, especially as the incidence of sun-related skin disorders was growing worldwide.
Since he founded Environ in 1990, vitamin A has become the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ skin care philosophy. It is an essential skin nutrient that has to be replenished every day for skin to appear healthier and more resilient .
Combined with other essential nutrients, like antioxidants and peptides, the long-term enhancement of skin becomes clearly visible. Backed by constant research, new and even more effective products are continually being introduced to the Environ range.
Environ focused on harnessing powerful scientific research to provide the most effective skin care products available. As the pioneer in results-driven skin care, Environ became the first cosmetic product to supply vitamin A, C and other antioxidants in effective dosages in special, airless packaging designed to protect the efficacy of all ingredients.
Environ continues to be one of the most efficacious, safest skin care ranges in the world. They are a generation ahead of other companies. Environ Skin Care products are manufactured from the highest quality raw materials. Unless stated otherwise, no preservatives are added during manufacture of Environ products. Environ has to declare every ingredient used by the manufacturers of each individual raw material, therefore, preservatives indicated in the declaration of ingredients are due to some of the raw materials that contain preservatives. It is important to note that Environ is one of the very few products in the world that does not have any preservatives added to the formula during manufacture. Almost all other companies which produce products sold or labeled specifically for the non-European environment, do not declare the ingredients in raw materials.
Environ products are tested on human volunteers only. Being a cruelty free company, the finished product is never tested on animals. Products are first tested on Dr. Fernandes and other directors of the company, then on an expert panel, and finally clinical trials on human volunteers are conducted for years prior to market release. Each product is only released to the public once it has been shown, by lengthy clinical testing, to be effective and safe.
Artificial Fragrances: Artificial perfumes and fragrances introduce potential contamination and unhealthy skin reactions, plus limit a product’s strength as combining different pH levels results in ingredients cancelling each other out. Environ will only add a natural fragrance when needed to disguise a naturally occurring scent from the raw materials.
Short Shelf Life/Product Expiration Dates: Most skin care product manufacturers and formulators do not put expiration dates on products or instead create artificial 3-5 year shelf life time lines. Environ puts dates on both the outside packaging and the product itself. WHY? We want everyone to have the freshest, most effective product and ingredients in the world. The client receives fresh products and should start using them immediately and daily to receive the most efficacious results.
The date listed on the packaging and product is equivalent to a “sell by date” and products are as fresh for 12 weeks after that date. Once opened, they should be used within 10-12 weeks.
Environ’s short shelf life products are manufactured weekly and shipped immediately to the USA distributor. Having such fresh, highly effective products ensures the very best possible results.
