Power peptide innovation

This month, Environ’s latest innovation launches - Intensive Avance DFP 312™ peptide cream joins the Apres-CIT™ and Sono DFP 312™ serums to complete the amazing trio of smart peptide products devised to enhance the range’s skin transforming potential.

This means that three world-beating, collagen boosting, peptide-packed approaches are now part of Environ’s anti-ageing armoury, advancing the results that can be achieved at home and in the salon to a new level. 

This product is developed with the uniquely powerful combination of Matrixyl® 3000, Trylagen® and Matrixyl® Synthé 6® that already features in the Apres-CIT serum applied after professional needling treatments and the Sono DFP 312 serum used in the fantastic new Collagen Power Facial.

Peptides have been identified as essential ingredients for the most advanced anti-ageing skincare preparations. This luxurious multi-functional moisturiser assists not only in improving the overall appearance of the skin, but also leaves it feeling moisturised and looking smoother and firmer.

Avance DFP 312™, with its potent trilogy of supersmart peptide complexes, is recommended even before the signs of time, stress and everyday living begin to manifest in skin. The new cream’s scientific formulation will ultimately help keep skin looking younger for longer.

Super-smart peptides for timeless beauty

The three smart peptide complexes in Avance DFP 312™ work in synergy to help to smooth out lines and wrinkles and restore collagen levels. Moisturising agents squalane and hyaluronic acid assist in skin hydration and help improve the elasticity of the skin, with the added benefit of vitamin E to quench free radicals. 

This remarkable homecare product assists in revitalising the skin’s appearance in combination with Environ® vitamin A moisturisers and truly enhances the effects of the professional Collagen Power Facial treatments.

Lustrous skin

“We believe that our chosen peptides work optimally in concert. This offers great opportunities for making lustrous, smooth looking skin,” says Environ® founder Dr Des Fernandes.

“Vitamin A has very distinct functions that govern the DNA that controls growth of stem cells in the skin, the way they differentiate into different functional cells (e.g. keratinocytes, fibroblasts that produce collagen etc.) and then of course how they mature. In doing so vitamin A also stimulates many growth factors and signaling molecules.

“The peptides stimulate specific signaling molecules and have a very targeted action. They cannot do all the tasks that vitamin A can do, and while vitamin A can stimulate many signaling molecules it does not do so specifically with a single purpose. The peptides work synergistically with vitamin A but are not an alternative to vitamin A.

“All of these products are part of my mission to see if we can achieve a lifting without surgery.”

Clinical trials by manufacturers of all the incorporated peptides prove that they support the activation of the cutaneous repair process and boost the formation of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans as well as the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. The resulting increased volume of the dermis in turn assists in achieving plumper, smoother and more youthfully radiant looking skin.

The results speak for themselves!
