Brand of the Month - Why we love Environ at Millies

BEHIND THE ENVIRON BRAND

Environ® Skincare has been a leading name in science-led, research driven skincare for over 30 years, as a pioneer in vitamin A skincare since 1990. Long before retinol, a form of vitamin A, gained its buzz in the skincare world, Environ was leading the way with advanced skin innovations harnessing vitamin A’s impact on skin to deliver unrivalled, long-lasting results. As Dr Des Fernandes says, Environ® products create “beautiful skin for a lifetime”. This philosophy remains core to the brand today, and Environ’s ground-breaking technology and innovative products have secured numerous prestigious awards, and legions of dedicated fans including leading beauty therapists, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons.  

ENVIRON STEP UP SYSTEM:

The brand pioneered a unique “step up” system to safely introduce active, impactful levels of these nutrients to the skin.  Environ’s unique, industry-renowned step-up system helps skin to comfortably acclimatise to high levels of vitamin A. This progressive system helps skin become gradually more familiar with increasing doses of vitamin A and other active ingredients such as antioxidants, reducing the likelihood of a skin reaction and creating beautiful, healthy skin for a lifetime.  

It’s important to speak to a skincare professional for a skin consultation before you use Environ products, as they will help you decide which level of products is right for you, and when you can progress to the next step for even more dramatic skin improvements.  

With Environ’s Skin EssentiA, everyday foundation range gives skin exactly what it needs, when it needs it. The scientifically researched combination of vitamins A, C, E , along with powerful antioxidants such as rooibos tea, honeybush and specially selected peptides, protects and normalises the skin while promoting collagen production. This range longer term benefits with moisturisers that gently ‘step up’ levels of vitamin A enabling skin to gain maximum long-term results.

WHY VITAMIN A? 

When it comes to skin, vitamin A is something of a miracle molecule and has some impressive benefits when included in skincare. These include:   

  • Promotes the effect of skin’s natural moisturisers: helping create a radiant glow.
  • Strengthens the effect of skin’s outer layer: maintaining firm skin. 
  • Stimulates the production of natural proteins (such as collagen and elastin): keeping skin looking youthful and healthy.
  • Increases cell turnover to revitalise skin health. 
  • Supports the effects of the skin’s immune system.
  • Regulates oil production from the sebaceous glands.
  • Normalises the production of melanin (skin’s pigment) 

Vitamin A occurs naturally in the skin but is broken down swiftly by factors including sun exposure. According to Dr Des Fernandes, research show that most characteristic signs of ageing (fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation) occur as a result of vitamin A deficiency in the skin – so replenishing your skin’s supplies of vitamin A is a vital step in keeping skin looking youthful and healthy. 

WHAT’S NEW?

New Focus Care Youth+ 3DSynergè Filler Crème is Environ’s new advanced powerhouse booster formulated to target the appearance of lines, wrinkled and loss of volume.
