Dr Des Fernandes, Founder of Environ Skincare


Environ Skin Care is a globally recognized professional skincare brand, it was founded by Dr Des Fernandes. He was the first person who successfully used vitamin A and antioxidants in a cosmetic product. Rated among the top ten plastic surgeons in the world, Dr Fernandes combined his experience with his idea for incorporating vitamin A into all different types of skincare products to create Environ Skin Care in 1990.

The Environ Step-Up System

Unique to the Environ Skincare is the approach to gradually increase the levels of Vitamin A in the skin.

founder Dr Des Fernandez says “Ageing skin is a direct result of sun-induced vitamin A deficiency. Correct the deficiency and you’ll have more radiant-looking skin.”

Replenishing the Vitamin A in your cells every day allows you to combat the potential skin abnormalities that Vitamin A deficiency can lead to.

The step-up system allows you to replace the Vitamin A you lose because of sun exposure.

Start with the Vitamin Step-Up System which delivers the right amount of Vitamin A into your skin and allows you to gradually increase this amount over time. 


What are the key ingredients?

Vitamin A is the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ Skin Care philosophy. There is much misinformation that can be found on the internet about vitamin A/ Retinol.

I would like to provide you with a brief scientific overview so you’ll know exactly how these products affect your skin. 

Vitamin A belongs to a family, retinoids. 

A nutrient found in certain foods, and can also be synthetically made as a dietary supplement or for use in topical formulations. According to Environ Skin Care founder and scientific director, Dr. Des Fernandes, “Aging skin is a direct result of sun-induced vitamin A deficiency. Correct the deficiency and you’ll have more radiant-looking skin.”

With all of the anti-ageing benefits provided by vitamin A, you may be asking: what’s not to love about this skincare ingredient? Unfortunately, vitamin A products are notorious for causing skin dryness and irritation. These side effects are largely due to how vitamin A works: the increase in cellular turnover reveals a fresh, smooth layer of new skin, but this can also cause dryness and irritation because of transepidermal water loss. 

The good news is that Environ Skin Care has created a way to overcome these potential side effects of vitamin A with their proprietary Vitamin Step-Up System. This system was created to help skin become more comfortable with increased levels of vitamin A and other ingredients. The product formulations range from 1 to 5, starting at the lowest concentration of the active ingredients and building up gradually to the highest concentration.
