Environ Skin Care

EnvironThe 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 (Pty) Ltd., 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.

environ-productsThe Company is a family run business and as such is one of the very few major skin care products that is manufactured and marketed by the same company. Founder, 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, Dr Fernandes’ sister, Val Carstens, joined her brother at Environ Skin Care (Pty) Ltd. 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.

Environ now has an extensive distribution network throughout South Africa and exports to more than sixty countries worldwide.

Jane-Iredale_productsJane’s line is a highly-sophisticated blend of minerals and pigments that are micro-pulverized, using proprietary technology and processes to form microscopic flat particles. These particles overlap each other on the skin to form a filter that allows the skin to breathe and function normally while still protecting it from air-borne pollutants. The staying power of the minerals is so great that they rarely need a touch-up during the day. And because these silky-feeling powders are water resistant, they won’t crease or smear even during the most strenuous exercise.

These state-of-the-art minerals are available in so many shades that there’s one for every complexion no matter what the ethnicity.
