Here’s Everything You Need to Know About the Latest Breakthrough in Skincare

Environ’s industry-leading Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM; which includes the Skin EssentiA and Youth EssentiA ranges; is designed to help skin become gradually more comfortable with increased levels of vitamin A and other ingredients that keep skin looking at its healthiest and most radiant. We talk to Dr. Des Fernandes about the powerhouse’s newly launched duo. Environ has recently introduced two new extensions to the Youth EssentiA range.

What was your motivation behind creating this new STEP-UP duo?

We’re always trying to go for better and these two products take youthfulness of the skin to a whole new level. They contain the highest levels of vitamin A permissible in skincare and are designed for use on those skins already acclimatised to high levels of vitamin A.

You’ve added Juvinity™ to the product, can you please tell us about this ingredient?

From the very beginning, we have concentrated on the support of the stem cell and the stem cell DNA. Juvinity offers us the ability to add to this by its support of the telomere (which protects our DNA from deteriorating). We’ve been working with this for a very long time and have conducted extensive research work. When you are working on the longevity of DNA, you will not notice clinical changes over a short period of time like you would when using vitamin A and peptides. Of course, vitamin A does have the wonderful advantage of also supporting the telomere but when we look at its actions, they are dominated by changes that you see quite quickly. Telomere changes are noticeable after five-plus years because they don’t change the activity of the various genes, they simply ensure that the genes continue acting properly for longer. So Juvinity is really an investment into the future of your skin.

Are peptides the new cornerstone of anti-aging? We have seen muscle relaxing peptides and collagen stimulating peptides; are there other breakthrough skin enhancing peptides yet to come?

Vitamin A remains the single most effective anti-aging rejuvenation and normalising ingredient that we know of in the world. Peptides strive to produce similar results in one or two aspects of the various fields in which vitamin A is so excellent. Peptides are currently one of the most interesting ingredients. For example, there are important peptides that are used to control pigmentation. Peptides should be seen as types of messengers that activate cells to do certain things. The peptides in themselves don’t make the collagen and elastin; they should simply be seen as messengers.

Other than the new ingredients mentioned, what makes Youth EssentiA such a superior class of skincare?

Well, with Youth EssentiA, we tried to use all the most active ingredients that we know about right now. I would venture to say that no other cosmetic company uses vitamin A to the level that Environ does. In addition, we have included extremely rich quantities of vitamin C, peptides, along with an array of antioxidants and a cocktail of DNA protective molecules.
