Dr Des Fernandes, the founder and scientific director of Environ Skin Care, visited Australia last month to spread the word about the power of Vitamin A.
Renowned as the creator of the first skincare range to include vitamin A “in high enough doses to counteract the harmful effects of the environment”, Dr Des was the special guest at educational seminars for Environ stockists as well as media events “to introduce new consumers” to the brand.
Dr Des told the stockists and media at the events that he has been studying Vitamin A and its role in skincare for more than 30 years.
“Vitamin A became my passion from around about 1982,” he said.
“I had been working with it since 1976, primarily for scars, however I ultimately found that Vitamin A is also effective for treating skin an array of skin conditions, because all skin concerns actually develop as a result of a vitamin A deficiency.
“Our challenge was to determine how to include high enough doses of vitamin A in our skin care products.
“With Environ we are able to treat the deficiency, which then allows us to target the individual skin concern.”
Dr Des also discussed Environ’s latest innovations ‒ the Focus Care Radiance+ and Clarity+ ranges which designed treat pigmentation and acne ‒ and how to effectively incorporate the brand’s new Electro Sonic DF Mobile Device into clients’ skin care regimes to maximise the benefits of its homecare products.
Margi Fox, the managing director of Margifox Distributors, the distributor of Environ in Queensland and Victoria, said she was delighted with the success of the educational seminars the company held in Brisbane and Melbourne.
“I was so thrilled to see the passion and enthusiasm from our stockists, their knowledge is second to none and makes me really proud to work with such an incredible brand and to be able to celebrate our dedicated stockists,” she said.
Dr Des also attended Environ events in NSW for Sensa Skincare and in WA for Vitahealth during his Australian tour.
