Beauty begins with Passion
ENVIRON is a company that combines the best of modern science with a deep passion for healthy skin. Pioneers in skin care over the past 25 yrs it is now sold in 62 countries. Dr Des Fernadez founder of Environ – discovered the benefits of Vitamin A within the skin cell & therefore has put all his effort and scientific knowledge into each and every product – to deliver high quality products that give us extraordinarily results. He also likes to keep things simple with no complicated beauty routines that waste our time. There are only 3 different ranges – that can all interlink with one another – which offers fantastic solutions for all skin types. He was the one to first invent, explore & design skin needling and is well respected in the medical community. Personally, I love the ease in which you can use these products eg: AVST 1 moisturiser is 3 products in ONE so it works out cheaper & easier all round – it is your day cream / night cream / serum Ingenious !!!
Every company has intrinsic qualities that define them from the beginning. Imprinted in Environ’s DNA is human passion, one man’s deep desire for radically effective skin care.
The idea behind Environ came in 1980, when the founder Dr Des Fernandes, a successful plastic and cosmetic surgeon, was deeply moved by the death of two patients from skin cancer, both women in their early twenties. Dr Fernandes became passionate about raising the quality of skin care, and began his research into high potency Vitamin A.
Environ continues to embody this passion, employing pioneering scientific research and unrelenting development. Many companies now use the same research for their own product ranges, but none have the experience, the history or … the passion.
Dr Des Fernandes qualified at the Witwatersrand University and then became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons at Edinburgh. He left South Africa to start training in Plastic Surgery but trained in Cardio-thoracic surgery and returned to Cape Town to work with Prof. Christiaan Barnard for several years and was involved in the first double heart transplant. However after completing his training he did a radical change and started specialising in plastic surgery.
He has pioneered using vitamin A in cosmetic products to give similar results to using retinoic acid in order to be able to achieve more convincing rejuvenation of the skin. One of his greatest achievements was to pioneer skin needling techniques which have eventually become internationally recognised as the safest, most effective way of treating lax skin, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks despite the resistance of my colleagues.
Beauty begins with beautiful skin
Environ products may look like just another skin care range. Nothing could be further from the truth. In a world where women and men around the world are bombarded with bizarre promises about youthful looking skin, the common experience is complete disappointment and frustration. This is simply because most skin care products are little more than old-fashioned moisturisers with one or more “magic” ingredients that have little or no research behind them and are only included for marketing purposes.
Environ starts from a very different place. We begin with science; we research the issues involved with skin health and work from there to create a range of products that provides comprehensive care. And we are driven by passion; skin care should be of the highest possible quality, providing the greatest benefit to the customer. Science and passion – it all adds up to skin that is healthy and beautiful, every type of skin at every life stage – your skin.
Beautiful skin for a lifetime
Environ products are beautiful in themselves. They embody real, human passion. They leverage pioneering science to deliver optimum results. They are uncompromising in terms of the quality of ingredients, the manufacturing processes and the packaging.
Our products are central to the beauty programmes of celebrities and A-listers across the globe. Recommended by dermatologists and beauty gurus everywhere, Environ skin care products deliver amazing levels of quality and effectiveness.
And that’s beautiful – for a lifetime.
Jane Iredale is the president and founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, a company she founded in 1994 which brought the mineral makeup line Jane Iredale to the aesthetic industry. She was the first to supply this industry with a line of makeup that had skin care benefits.
She was inspired to develop a makeup that was good for the skin by her career in the entertainment industry where she saw actresses and models struggling with the ill-effects of the many kinds of makeup they wore. Her experience in working with women whose careers depended on a clear complexion allowed her to see how skin disorders and sensitivities not only threatened careers, but also destroyed self-confidence.
Jane has always thought of makeup as an essential part of a woman’s sense of well-being and she wanted to make that easy to achieve. That’s why her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one, and why every product in the line is multi-functional. Her goal is to make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin. Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.
THE SKIN CARE MAKEUP™ HYPOALLERGENIC & DERMATOLOGIST TESTED.
This has had an international resonance. The jane iredale brand is carried throughout Australia and world-wide in more than fifty countries and is not Not tested on Animals.
