Take Vitamin A to the next level

The Environ philosophy behind the Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ is to start low, go slow. If the skin is prepared with low doses of vitamin A, it is less likely to react to a slightly higher dose.

This unique Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ is one that allows the skin to become comfortable with increased levels of Vitamin A and other essential vitamins and antioxidants over time. It guides the skin on its journey to help bring it back to a healthy state.

Dr Fernandes realised there had to be a better way to replenish the skin’s levels of Vitamin A, without any harsh side effects. By learning that fat-soluble vitamin A form retinyl palmitate, breaks down into retinoic acid in the body, he pioneered a step-up vitamin system that can and should be used by people of all ages to prevent and reverse the signs and appearance of photodamage. It is based on varying intensities and levels of ingredients such as vitamin A, C & E, peptides, growth factors, as well as alpha-hydroxy acids, to ensure safe clinical treatments and at-home treatments to meet any persons skin concerns. By gradually increasing the strength of this form of Vitamin A, we can treat all types of skins.

The skin requires a high dose of retinyl palmitate to produce visible results, this is initially introduced with low doses (levels 1-2). Once your skin has built a tolerance and acceptance of the fat-soluble Vitamin A, you can move up to the next level dosage (3-5). The more skin is exposed to sunlight, the more you need to ensure you apply, day and night, 7 days a week to ensure results.

Once you have progressed up the ladder, you will be able to use prescription-strength Vitamin A in its gentle form (retinyl Palmitate) in a much more tolerable, less abusive way than the acid form. A great advantage to the step-up system is that you run very little risk of retinoid reaction and you won’t have hypersensitivity to the sun.
