 Ageing is a chronic disease that needs daily treatment starting before the visible signs show, after all prevention is better than cure. As we get older, more intensive treatment is required. Daily treatment using the Environ® range will help reduce and delay the signs of photo-ageing. Environ® skin care products have been formulated to combat and relieve the harmful effects of the harsh climatic changes of today’s environment specifically pollution and ever-increasing doses of radiation from the sun due to the thinning of the protective ozone layer. Added to these are the modern-day effects of social and work stresses and poor diet. The Environ® products offer a definite regime to nourish, protect and maintain a healthy, youthful and beautiful skin. Each product is made from the highest quality ingredients. They are mostly free from fragrance, preservatives, colourants and animal extracts. We have expanded our products into a full skin care range, including seven product categories and a total of more than forty products. Since ancient times, mankind has attempted to make cosmetics to improve the skin and to hide the visible effects of ageing. The bitter truth is that, for the most part, cosmetic creams remained simple old-fashioned moisturisers offering “Dreams of Youthful Skin” wrapped in progressively more modern and more expensive containers.   The introduction of vitamin A into the formulation of skin care products heralded a new era in the treatment of sun-damaged skin. Although some cosmetic houses were using very low doses of vitamin A in their skin care products in the 1980s, Dr Des Fernandes, a prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon, was the first person in the world to introduce vitamin A in high effective doses. This range established Environ® as a leader in skin care.   The Environ® skin care range was first formulated as a result of Dr Fernandes’ misfortune when he attempted to treat the melanoma of two young, charismatic patients, who both died before they were twenty-three years old. Such a horrifying experience leaves an indelible scar on one’s life as a doctor. For this reason, he started to study the mechanism of skin cancer and the skin - and thus Environ® was born.   The cosmetic manufacturing company, Environ Skin Care cc, was founded by Dr Fernandes in 1990 and he soon expanded its number of products into a full skin care range. Environ® skin care products are manufactured under strictly controlled laboratory conditions at the Environ® factory in Cape Town, South Africa.   The company is owned by Dr Des Fernandes and his sister, Mrs Val Metcalfe. It now has an extensive distribution network throughout South Africa and exports to more than thirty countries worldwide. Dr Fernandes has specialised in the field of plastic surgery in which he has gained the respect of his international peers. After a long career in the commercial world, Val Metcalfe joined her brother at Environ Skin Care cc as its CEO, bringing with her a wealth of business experience that she has used to engineer and build Environ® into the company it is today.
