Born from extensive scientific research and the constant pursuit of developing best-in-class skincare, Environ introduces two new Anti-Pollution innovations, formulated with highly intelligent ingredient combinations that offer complete protection against the harmful effects of pollution.
Life has changed. But the world hasn’t stopped. Living the new normal is pressurised. We are time deprived, constantly connected to digital devices and exposed to high levels of stress. The harmful effects of numerous indoor and outdoor pollutants are on the rise and are scientifically shown to cause significant damage to the skin.
Vehicle fumes, cigarette smoke, particulate matter, heavy metals, harmful chemicals and other pollutants in combination with ultraviolet (UV) blue light and infrared irradiation is known to induce oxidative stress and a destructive chain of free radicals, leading to increased signs of skin sensitivity, premature skin ageing, skin discolouration, dryness, dullness, and roughness.
Additionally, it is predicted that 70% of the world’s pollution will live in cities by 2050. Urban pollution is on the rise with it being the number one public enemy endangering skin and our health. And therefore, protecting skin against environmental stresses has never been more important. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the damaging effects of pollution and are therefore seeking more advanced proactive skin protection.
Dr. Des Fernandes, Environ Skin Care Founder and Scientific Director says, “We are extremely proud to introduce two new skin care innovations to the South African market. It has been 6 years in the making and since 2014 we have reworked the formulae several times. We understand that pollution is unavoidable, and that the future of skin health requires ingenuity, science and innovation. We know that men and women out there are seeking multi-functional, science-based solutions to protect, reinforce and restore healthy-looking skin, and this is what makes our scientifically advanced anti-pollution innovations even more relevant and compelling.”
“The solution for our consumers is not an all-in-one product as we found that we could not fit everything into one product. Our two newest innovations to the Environ family work really well together and are formulated to provide complete protection against the harmful effects of pollution. We are confident that our consumers will see results and are excited to hear their feedback,” says Fernandes.

How to use
Spray onto skin after applying sunscreen and/or foundation. Keep the eyes closed, hold about 15cm from face and feel the fine mist land on your skin.
Can be applied morning and/or evening or during the day as and when required, for extra protection and comfort.
We loved keeping this on our work-from-home desk and spritzing on the face during the day. It’s very cooling and refreshing on a hot day, while keeping skin hydrated and protected from pollutants. We also found it very easy to integrate into our current skincare regime without interfering with other products and ingredients.
FOCUS CARE COMFORT+ ANTI-POLLUTION MASQUE
Experience the purifying effects of Environ’s new multi-functional charcoal masque, formulated with Japanese charcoal and special botanicals to help absorb pollutant impurities, normalise and hydrate the appearance of skin, leaving it feeling revitalised and smooth.
Long-term exposure to rapidly increasing levels of urban pollution is unavoidable. Environ’s powerful approach builds on the brand’s pioneering skincare philosophy of vitamin A combined with targeted solutions to future-proof skin.
Experience City Comfort. Be Calm. Be Resilient. Be Beautiful.
How to use
After pre-cleansing and cleansing, apply the masque in an even, moderate layer ensuring there’re no ‘clear’ gaps. Allow to dry for up to 20 minutes before rinsing with water, massaging in a circular motion to gently polish and purify the skin and follow with your regular nighttime products. Tip: we use a damp soft mitt, muslin cloth or re-usable cotton pad to remove all masks.
Can be used 2-3 times a week, in the evening.
We thoroughly enjoyed applying this masque using a brush from Environ (helps to apply more evenly and save from wasting product on your fingers). The masque is not messy and very easy to rinse off. Our skin was visibly hydrated, super soft and plump afterward. Much like the spritz, we found this product very easy to include in our current nighttime skincare routine.
