Our story

Vitahealth Skincare was Established in 1999 in Perth, WA. We service, supply and distribute Environ® Skincare throughout Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory. Our main aim is to assist, educate and help skincare specialists to achieve and maintain healthy skin for their clients and themselves, for a lifetime.

We believe that skin has a life of its own and that vitamin A is the “oxygen” it needs to look beautiful and healthy for life. For this reason, we actively pursue and work with only the best products in skincare science. Environ’s founder, Dr Des Fernandes, skillfully and consistently develops best-in-class, scientifically researched and developed products that treat the skin and bring it back to a healthy state.

Everyone needs to know the truth about their skin and what it needs to function as a healthy organ. Our message to everyone is: “Your skin is your permanent outfit. You only get one skin—look after it.”

At Vitahealth, we introduce skincare professionals and clinics to products that work. We teach them how and why they work so well and about best skin care practices. We are driven and want you to see the results you can achieve using Environ® Skincare.

With our combined 30+ years of experience, our highly trained staff are always there to help you with any issues you may encounter regarding your skin.

“I want to make the skin BE better, not merely look or feel better”

– Dr Des Fernandes –

Meet the Vitahealth Team

We would love for you to meet our, passionate, dedicated and experienced Vitahealth team, who enjoy nothing more than assisting our stockists with their Environ skincare education and assisting them on their client journeys on a daily basis.


Owner and Managing Director

I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. I had the privilege of spending four years at university, where I completed a Bachelor of Science, which was especially useful when I entered the pharmaceutical industry. Before immigrating to Australia in 1999, I spent many years in this industry. I was thrilled when Environ gave me the “go-ahead” to bring Environ to Australia, setting up Vitahealth, the distribution company, in May 1999. I was introduced to Environ at the ripe old age of 40 and have never looked back. I must have been the most sceptical person regarding skincare, which soon changed after starting on this fantastic, results-driven skincare. Believe me when I say it’s never too late. We are all going to age, BUT let’s age with healthy, glowing skin because that is our permanent outfit.


Operations Manager

I have been involved in the beauty industry for over 40 years. I have taught hairdressing internationally in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. I have been at Vitahealth for the last eight years and believe we all deserve the very best and Vitahealth, with Environ products, delivers on its promise. Men and women the world over put themselves last or believe that they don’t deserve great skincare. As the famous ad says, “You’re worth it,” just make sure it’s Environ skincare to see exceptional results.


Office General Manager

I have been with Vitahealth for eight years; I work alongside Lee as the office general manager.

I love working as part of the Vitahealth team, getting to know all of our stockists individually and building great relationships with them. I am always happy to lend a hand and give advice and support to our stockists where needed. Environ, it speaks for itself. Over the last few years, my skincare journey has seen my pigmentation reduce dramatically. My skin is glowing! My favourite products are Mela Even Cream and the Mela Prep Lotion.


Brand & Marketing Manager

I have been fortunate to have worked with the fantastic Vitahealth team for eight years as a Marketing and Brand Manager. I enjoy liaising with our dedicated Environ stockists regularly and working with them to help grow their business through dedicated Environ education evenings, events and promotions. While working with the Environ brand taught me much about skin health and the importance of using active skincare as part of my daily regimen. Having Lynne and the team share their passion, knowledge, and expertise with me daily has inspired my skincare journey, and I can honestly say I will never use another skincare brand again. My favourite products would have to be the Mela Prep Lotion and Youth EssentiA Eye Gel, and of course, where would I be without my Skin EssentiA® 5 moisturiser?!


Sales and Marketing Assistant

Joining the Vitahealth team three years ago has been a dream come true for me. My skincare journey started twelve years ago after I had to take a strong antibiotic to help clear my acne. Environ was recommended to me by my Doctor, and I have never looked back. It helped clear my acne and scarring and diminish my pigmentation. My skin is now the most healthy it has ever been. My favourite products would have to be the Gold Roll-CIT, Youth EssentiA 4Plus, Avance Elixir and the Youth EssentiA Eye Gel.

I enjoy working with the passionate Vitahealth team and our dedicated Environ stockists to grow their business through education, training, and advice about using this world-class range to help their clients achieve healthy skin for a lifetime.



My journey with the wonderful team at Vitahealth began eighteen years ago. Since then, I have been the company’s Book Keeper, and I love every minute of it.
