Dr. Doherty is pleased to carry the Environ line in his Boston office. Environ Skin Care is a fantastic all-inclusive line of products with an interesting past.
Environ focuses on the use of Vitamin A for skin treatment. The introduction of Vitamin A into the formulation of skin care products heralds a new era in the treatment of sun-damaged skin. Dr. Des Fernandes, a prominent Cape Town, South African plastic surgeon, was among the first medical professionals to introduce Vitamin A in high and effective doses and he did it with Environ. This new range established Dr. Fernandes and Environ as leaders in skin care. The Environ skin care regime was first formulated as a result of Dr. Fernandes’ treating skin cancer patients. He studied the mechanisms of skin, skin cancer and skin healing—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 system. Environ skin care products are manufactured under strictly controlled laboratory conditions at the Environ factory I Cape Town, South Africa.
The company is owned and operated by Dr. Des Fernandes and his sister, Mrs. Val Carstens. It now has an extensive distribution network throughout more than 60 countries worldwide.
Dr. Fernandes has specialized in the field of plastic surgery in which he has gained the respect of his international peers.
