“Ageing skin is a direct result of sun-induced vitamin-A deficiency. Correct the deficiency and you’ll have more radiant skin”
The words of Dr. Des Fernandes, a leading expert in skincare science, founder of Environ and winner of the INNOCOS 2016 Innovation Leader of the Year award.
His concept of boosting the body with levels of Vitamin A in a controlled way to improve skin health, youthfulness and appearance has gained international recognition.
The judges of the award released a joint statement explaining their decision: “As a practicing cosmetic surgeon, Dr Des Fernandes clearly has an in-depth knowledge of human skin and associated cosmetic challenges. His Step Up approach used in salons by skin care experts shows great innovation combining medical knowledge with cosmetic formulation and close customer input. His broadened activities with other vitamins and their derivatives will bring further benefits to the consumer.”
Stronger doses of Vitamin A are applied to the skin in the form of retinol. However, if the concentration of retinol is higher than the skin can tolerate it can cause a "retinol reaction" in some cases.
The Environ step-up approach starts with lower concentrations of Vitamin A, allowing the body to develop a tolerance before stepping up to higher doses. This has a great affect in developing the appearance of skin over a sustained period of time without any adverse side affects.
