The Environ Philosophy

Since ancient times, people have used cosmetics to try to improve their skin and to hide the visible 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 progressively more modern and expensive packaging.

The introduction of vitamin A into skincare formulations was a ground-breaking development, because it offered benefits to sun—damaged skin. Prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes was a pioneer in this field. In the 1980s, he was one of the first to use vitamin A in high enough doses to ensure a genuine, visible effect on the quality of the skin.

Dr Des became interested in the physiology of skin cancer and the skin following the untimely deaths of two young patients due to melanoma. Through his research, he discovered the essential role of vitamin A in skin health and he became determined to create a range of skin care products that would maintain healthy skin, especially as the incidence of sun-related skin disorders grows worldwide. Out of this, the Environ® company and skin care range were born.

Environ has developed an extensive distribution network in South Africa and globally. The scientifically proven efficacy of its products makes it one of the cult favourites among those in the know; Environ is acclaimed by international beauty editors, skincare therapists and dermatologists alike.

At its core, Environ’s mission is to provide proven, cutting—edge technology and sound skin science principles, thus creating skincare for women and men from youth to maturity, as well as children, encompassing all skin types and ethnicities.

Caring for your skin is important, whether you are male or female, and a combined strategy of effective skincare and sound lifestyle habits will help keep your skin in optimum condition. And, it’s never too late to start.

                   Caring For Your Skin

The way your skin responds to ageing is due, inpart, to your genetic make—up. But how you treat your skin has a huge impact on the visible signs. Exposure to sunlight, environmental elements such as air pollution and toxins in your food, and your lifestyle (lack of sleep, stress, smoking and alcohol) all contribute to the visible signs of ageing developing well before their time. So, it's good to know that if you control these factors, you can make a material difference to your skin.

With the variety of non-surgical interventions available, it's easy to assume there are enough quick fixes out there to beat skin ageing. However, the best way to achieve a healthy skin is to start using skincare products from a young age. Cosmetic technology now provides natural, safe and consistent solutions that deliver effective, believable results.

The AVST Range

The AVST Range from Environ® Skin Care was developed using a combination of vitamin A, antioxidants and flavonoids that help reduce the visible signs of ageing resulting in a more youthful looking complexion.

As the multi-layered human skin responds to AVST, it appears smoother and more radiant. AVST is produced in five varying strengths of vitamins A and C. All of the products contain antioxidants; flavonoids and penetrant enhancers while AVST 3, 4 & 5 also contain peptides, to assist with the promotion of collagen and elastin formation. While vitamin A is known to have natural photo—protection properties, it is recommended that a sunscreen of SPF 15 is used when the skin is exposed to UV radiation.

The lonzyme® C-Quence Range

In the timeless pursuit of perfection, no expense has been spared in the scientific research and development of this dynamic range of skincare products. The lonzyme C-Quence range contains essential vitamins, antioxidants and peptides, and with the aid of advanced technology, daily application of these products will give your skin the appearance of a smoother, more even tone and texture and a radiant, healthy glow.

The 5 habits of healthy skin

1.  Protection, Protection, Protection

Become sun-wise by wearing protective clothing, using a broad-spectrum sun-protection cream, and staying out of the sun between l0am and 3pm. Environ’s® RAD contains sun filters that provide protection from both UVA and UVB rays.

2. Don’t Worry, Be Happy People who believe they look good have a strong sense of self-esteem, are freed from anxiety and enjoy high energy levels. Stress and anxiety cause accelerated free-radical activity, and restricted blood and oxygen flow to the cells. Try multi-beneficial activities like yoga, dancing and walking.

3. Where There's Smoke... There Are Wrinkles

Aside from those tel|-tale lines around your mouth, smoking robs the skin of oxygen and precious vitamin C, doubling the rate at which it ages.

4. Sleep Well! Sleep is the foundation of your wellbeing. Human growth hormone is released to revitalise your body and regenerate cells. The way you sleep also determines your wrinkle pattern. If you favour one side, your face may end up more pleated on that side.

5. Eat Well! Your fork could be your best weapon against skin ageing. Think of it as a ‘two-pronged attack’ — your skin creams do the work on the surface and your diet tackles the task from the inside. Eating the right foods gives the skin the nutrients it needs to be healthier, brighter, and smoother and, dare we say it, less wrinkled. The I top 10 beauty foods: antioxidant-rich berries, broccoli, butternut and dark-leafed greens; oatmeal (slow-cooked, not instant) for its soluble fibre and B—complex vitamins; essential fatty acid—rich olive oil, salmon and soy. And, last but not least, water.

What Causes Problem Skins?

Problem skin goes hand in hand with the teenage years, thanks to the body's fluctuating hormone levels. Unfortunately, pimples are no longer the preserve of teens. Men and women of all ages find themselves with spots cohabiting unhappily with lines and wrinkles, Luckily, there is much you can do, whatever your age, to combat this problem.

Besides a genetic predisposition to skin problems and hormonal fluctuations, stress plays a serious role. This modern malady has as much of an effect on your skin as it has on the rest of your body. Researchers have found a correlation between mental state and skin health. Under stressful conditions, the body releases hormones adrenalin, cortisol and DHEA to help us channel energy and oxygen to our muscles and brain in a ‘fight or flight‘ reaction.

These are good in times of genuine danger, but the body reacts the same way when you’re stuck in traffic, or rushing to meet a deadline. When the body remains in continuous stressed mode, energy is channeled away from repair and maintenance; the result is accelerated ageing and skin problems. It's commonly believed that the release of adrenalin during stress also stimulates the production of androgens — ‘male’ hormones that exist in both male and female bodies - which causes an increased production of sebum(oil) which, in turn, can cause skin problems.

Vitamin A products have been used for decades to treat problem skins. This super vitamin, along with ingredients like salicylic acid, helps unblock pores and makes the environment of the skin hostile for acne bacteria. Never use harsh products that strip your skin of oil as you will end up with dry, irritated skin with even more oil than before as the skin tries frantically to repair its protective outer barrier. Find products that respect the skin’s barrier function and moisture, while working to control the causes of pimples.

Fabulous Vitamin A

The cornerstone of Environ® treatments is vitamin A. Extensive scientific research and trials have shown that vitamin A has a corrective effect on skin, smoothing it and softening and protecting it from the effects of ultraviolet radiation and free radicals. Its most important activity is to normalise the function of the skin. it promotes the production of healthy collagen and elastin and improves the skin's natural moisture, leading to healthy, younger-looking skin.

Environ draws on cutting-edge technology, combined with proven botanicals and scientific principles to create skincare ranges that address different needs and problems for people of all ages.

Free-Radical Onslaught

The daily, total onslaught by external aggressors on each cell in the body changes oxygen molecules into free radicals, which wreak havoc in cells, damaging their walls and connective tissue. These faulty cells then copy themselves, carrying the damage in their Blueprint.  Antioxidants or free-radical scavengers are the best defence against this. The most well known antioxidants are vitamins C and E,beta—carotene, green tea, rooibos and grape seed extract.

They work in different ways, but essentially they attack free radicals as they form, preventing them doing serious damage in the body. Taking them orally (in your diet or via nutritional supplements) helps to neutralise the by-products of oxidation in the body. Applying them on your skin (via your skincare products), helps protect the skin from environmental factors.

The Environ® Solution

The B—Active range is formulated to address problem skin. The products contains Australian tea—tree oil for its antiseptic properties to help soothe and cleanse skin, and most contain salicylic acid‘ for its mild exfoliant properties.
