The Cove Spa offer a wide range of Environ products in-Spa. As part of our commitment, we want to ensure the Environ product you buy is suitable to your skin type, so in order to place your order, kindly call one of our expert therapists, who will be able to process your order post a short phone consultation.

Since ancient times, mankind has attempted to make cosmetics to improve the skin and to hide the visible effects of ageing. The truth is that, for the most part, cosmetic creams remained simple old-fashioned moisturisers offering "Dreams of Youthful Skin" often without real results.

The introduction of vitamin A into the formulation of skin care products heralded a new era in the treatment of sun-damaged skin. Although some cosmetic houses were using very low doses of vitamin A in their skin care products in the 1980s, Dr Des Fernandes, a prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon, was the first person in the world to introduce vitamin A in high effective doses. This range established Environ® as a leader in skin care.

The Environ skin care range was first formulated as a result of Dr Fernandes' misfortune when he attempted to treat the melanoma of two young, charismatic patients, who both died before they were twenty-three years old. Such a horrifying experience leaves an indelible scar on one's life as a doctor. For this reason, he started to study the mechanism of skin cancer and the skin - 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 range. Environ skin care products are manufactured under strictly controlled laboratory conditions at the Environ factory in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Company is a family run business and as such is one of the very few major skin care products that is manufactured and marketed by the same company. Founder, Dr Fernandes has specialised in the field of plastic surgery in which he has gained the respect of his international peers. After a long career in the commercial world, Dr Fernandes' sister, Val Carstens, joined her brother at Environ Skin Care (Pty) Ltd. as its CEO, bringing with her a wealth of business experience that she has used to engineer and build Environ into the company it is today.

Environ now has an extensive distribution network throughout South Africa and exports to more than sixty countries worldwide.
