FEED your skin

Vitamin A cannot be synthesized by the body; it needs to be supplied to the body. Feed the skin using the world’s most Advanced Vitamin Skin Therapy (AVST) system by Environ Skincare containing the right combination of vitamins, antioxidants and bio-peptides to hydrate, replenish and revitalize the skin.

At the core of healthy skin is the power of daily habits. Our Skin Coaches will customize the right at-home treatment program to achieve results over the first SKIN90 cycle and build the path towards healthy-looking skin for a lifetime.

Vitamin A

Dr Des Fernandes, founder and scientific director of Environ Skincare, says, “Aging skin is a direct result of sun-induced Vitamin A deficiency. Correct the deficiency and you’ll have more radiant-looking skin.”

Environ® believes that skin has a life and that vitamin A is the “oxygen” it needs to look healthy and beautiful for life.  That is why Environ® created the industry-leading Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™ to help skin become gradually more comfortable with increased levels of vitamin A.

What is different about Environ Skincare compared to what I am using?

SO MANY THINGS!

  1. Environ science is evidence-based and rigorous research goes into each and every product. It is created by world-renowned Dr. Des Fernandes.
  2. The Environ Step-up system is designed to gradually increase the dosage of vitamins over time, reducing the risk of retinoid reaction and sustaining improvement over time.
  3. Environ formulations have the highest quality and quantity of Vitamins A, C & E and many active ingredients that help your skin transform and maintain healthy skin.

I have sensitive skin – Can I use Environ products?

Yes of course! Environ is designed to make the skin healthier.

When the skin is healthier, the skin’s barrier function is stronger and better able to keep out irritants. There is a whole targeted line dedicated to sensitive skin and a professional treatment protocol for sensitive skin as well.

Do Environ products have SPF in them?

Environ products do not contain SPF for your sun protection. This is because they are meant to be used morning and night, and of course, we don’t need SPF at night time. Also, we should be reapplying sunscreen when spending prolonged periods of time in the sun. For even more sun protection from within – check out Bend Beauty on our page!

Does Environ test on Animals?

Environ products are put through intensive clinical trials and only tested on human volunteers, starting with Dr. Fernandes himself and other company directors.

Never tested on animals, Environ products are the safest, most ethical, and most meticulously produced skincare products in the industry.

I hear Vitamin A can’t be used in the summer months, is this true?

This is only partly true. With certain types of Vitamin A, you have to be extra careful with sun exposure. However, many of the Environ everyday products contain a type of Vitamin A that is not sun sensitizing, so you can use it all year round!

I used Vitamin A in the past, and my skin got very red and dry! Will this happen again?

If your skin isn’t used to using Vitamin A, you can get what is called a retinoid reaction. Too much too quick isn’t recommended. Our motto is to start low and go slow. Work your way up the step-up system, levels 1 – 5. After each 90 day plan our skin coaches will help determine if you are ready for the next step!

I want to use level 5 of Environ step-up system products right away, is this okay?

If your skin isn’t used to using Vitamin A, you can get what is called a retinoid reaction. Too much too quick isn’t recommended. Our motto is to start low and go slow. Work your way up the step-up system, levels 1 – 5. After each 90 day plan our skin coaches will help determine if you are ready for the next step!

Check out our most FAQs.

Is the Bend Anti-Aging formula vegan?

Our Anti-Aging Formula does contain ingredients derived from animals, and therefore, it is not vegan. Both the soft gel and liquid formulations contain fish oil and vitamin D derived from sheep wool. The soft gels contain beeswax, and their capsule shell is made of bovine gelatin.

Is the Anti-Aging Formula safe to take during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

Our Anti-Aging Formula does not have any known contraindications. However, with any dietary supplement, we recommend that you consult with a healthcare practitioner prior to use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, to make sure the product is right for you.

How long does it take before you start noticing results in your skin?

Typically, people first notice some results after two weeks and full benefits after three to four months of supplementation. This is based on the amount of time the active ingredients tend to take to saturate your cells.

Can someone with a food sensitivity to soy take the Anti-Aging Formula?

Both the liquid and soft gel products contain tocopherols derived from refined soybean oil. These tocopherols are highly refined, which puts them at low risk of causing a reaction. You may see “tocopherols (derived from non-GMO soy)” in the ingredient list; this is disclosed in case of extreme allergies.

Are there any side effects of your products?

Since our Anti-Aging Formula is an oil-based product, some people may experience mild gastrointestinal disturbances. Our Marine Collagen + Co-Factors may also cause these symptoms.

How is the Anti-Aging Formula different from fish oil?

Fish oil by itself is a great supplement for overall health. It would not, however, provide the skin-related benefits associated with the Anti-Aging Formula, which is the only anti-ageing skincare product licensed in Canada by Health Canada.

Our Anti-Aging Formula differs from fish oil supplements in a few ways. Firstly, it combines several synergistic ingredients into one supplement. The fish oil in our Anti-Aging Formula is also unique in that it provides a very high EPA: DHA ratio which is important for benefiting skin health. Borage oil is a powerful skin health ingredient that supports skin barrier properties and is very effective (along with EPA) in treating skin inflammation. Zeaxanthin (from paprika) and lutein (from marigold flowers) are powerful skin antioxidants that also work alongside EPA to protect against UV-related skin damage and ageing. It also contains vitamin D, which offers a myriad of skin health and anti-ageing benefits.

What are the differences between bovine and marine collagen?

Fish collagen peptides, like those sourced from cows or pigs, have been shown to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Although all these sources demonstrate efficacy, research suggests that fish-derived collagen peptides have a higher level of biological activity. Research has shown fish-derived collagen peptides to be significantly better absorbed, which may be the primary reason for its greater efficacy. Other reasons may be related to the variance in amino acid sequences in fish skin, versus mammalian sources.

In addition to efficacy, the various sources differ in how they are processed. The thick hides of cows and pigs require 2-3 weeks of soaking in an acid or alkaline chemical to break down the tissue. Fish sources require no pretreatment and take approximately 36 hours to process into refined collagen peptide powder.

Cow and pig-sourced peptides may not be suitable for certain populations of people due to cultural or religious beliefs. Fish sources are typically consumed without such restrictions.

Lastly, cow and pig-sourced peptides have a significantly higher environmental footprint compared to wild fisheries, such as the Icelandic cod fishery. Moreover, the Icelandic cod fishery is sustainably managed and regarded as a gold standard for responsible fishing.

From what type of fish is your Marine Collagen + Co-Factors derived? And which countries are these fish from?

Our hydrolyzed marine collagen is primarily derived from the skin of cod from Icelandic fisheries, with smaller amounts from the skin of haddock and pollock. The hydrolyzed collagen is manufactured in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Does Marine Collagen + Co-Factors replace your Anti-Aging Formula, or should I take both?

Our Anti-Aging Formula and Marine Collagen + Co-Factors work well together since they target different areas of skin health. Our Anti-Aging Formula is the foundational product for delivering the overall greatest benefit to your skin. It targets skin inflammation, hydration, firmness, and elasticity, helping to optimize your internal skin climate. It also helps in reducing your skin’s sensitivity to UV- induced sunburn. Our Marine Collagen + Co-Factors is an ideal add-on. It is specially formulated with synergistic ingredients to help build and maintain collagen levels, supporting healthy skin, hair, and nails. This product provides a boost to your skincare regime.

The products can be taken together or alone, depending on your personal needs. However, the most benefit is seen when they are taken together.

What allergens are present in your Marine Collagen + Co-Factors?

We encourage individuals with allergies to read our product labels prior to use to make sure they are right for their individual needs. Ingredients found in Bend Beauty’s Marine Collagen + Co-Factors (Strawberry, Coconut and Unflavoured) do not contain the major allergens: milk, eggs, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat or soybean. The hydrolyzed collagen is derived from fish skin (cod, haddock, and/or pollock), and therefore, it is not recommended for individuals with fish allergies, however, it is free from shellfish including mollusks and crustaceans.

Can you provide best practices for mixing Marine Collagen + Co-Factors?

Here are the mixing instructions we’ve found work best:

1) Measure 2.5 tsp of Marine Collagen + Co-Factors into a clean, dry glass

2) Pour 250 ml of your beverage of choice into the glass (over-top of the Marine Collagen + Co-Factors). Room temperature beverages work best. If you prefer to drink a cold beverage, simply add ice once the product has dissolved. As mentioned above, the product can be added to hot beverages, just make sure to add them just before consuming as the vitamin C can degrade with long exposure to heat.

3) Stir to dissolve
