Environ® differs from other vitamin A series by offering an escalation system that takes the user through 5 levels of vitamin A. You start with the lowest dose to help build up the retinoid receptors in the skin, and then you are brought step-by-step up to the highest possible dose that is allowed for use in the cosmetics industry.
Environ® created the industry-leading Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM to help the skin gradually become more comfortable with increased levels of vitamin A and other ingredients that keep the skin healthy and radiant. The risk of transient retinoid reactions can be prevented by using a metered escalation system that gradually increases the level of vitamin A.
Vitamin A is the key ingredient in Environs® skin care philosophy and must be added daily to keep the skin healthy and resilient. Combined with other essential nutrients such as antioxidants and peptides, the long-term improvement of the skin becomes significantly visible.
Briefly about vitamin A:
Vitamin A is found naturally in the skin. When we are children, the amount is at its highest, but the level decreases with age. Vitamin A is one of the most well-documented skin care ingredients.
It is scientifically proven that vitamin A can repair and strengthen the skin, reduce acne and increase the amount of collagen in the skin, which has a smoothing effect and makes the skin more soft and supple. It is a myth that vitamin A makes the skin extra sensitive to light. On the contrary, vitamin A makes the skin more resistant to UV rays.
Vitamin A can help skin of all ages and in all skin conditions. Just remember that the skin needs slow habituation.
Aging skin is a direct result of sun-induced vitamin A deficiency.
Correct the deficiency and you'll have more radiant-looking skin.
