Environ Skin Care Bolsters Its Medical Credentials With Two Appointments

Oct 19th, 23

Environ is dedicated to advancing the science of achieving and maintaining healthy, beautiful skin, placing it at the forefront of innovation.

Dr Des Fernandes, Environ Founder and Scientific Director, emphasises that the brand achieves this by employing a highly skilled and experienced team to spearhead research and development in the on-site research facility. Environ is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Ernst Eiselen and Associate Professor Matthias Aust, both as Independent Medical Consultants to the brand.


Dr Ernst Eiselen has acted as a Medical Advisor to Environ for the past two decades, offering valuable advice to Environ clients all over the world. His role as Medical Advisor will continue, in addition to his new role as Independent Medical Consultant. Dr Matthias Aust is a Plastic Surgeon and one of the leading international researchers in the field of skin needling.

“With Dr Aust and Dr Eiselen joining the Environ team, we have no doubt that our customers will continue to benefit from the indisputable science that they have come to associate with our brand and our products,” says Dr Fernandes.


Dr Ernst Eiselen obtained his degree at Pretoria University in 1981 and became a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practice in 2009. A fortuitous meeting with Environ Group Chairman Val Carstens and Dr Des Fernandes resulted in an interest in the properties and role of Vitamin A in skincare. This fed Dr Eiselen’s interest in issues surrounding skin health and combating skin cancer. He has a keen interest in tissue regeneration in general wound care, as well as treatments that repair sun-damaged skin rather than just treating skin lesions. He believes that an understanding of the “cellular language” has, and will, unlock many of the revolutionary treatments in skin and wound care.


Dr Matthias Aust has practised in the field of aesthetics and plastic surgery for over eighteen years. His experimental and clinical research focuses on skin regeneration, rejuvenation, scar treatment, and wrinkles by percutaneous collagen induction therapy and other strategies in anti-aging medicine. In 2014 Dr Aust won the Best of Europe prize, given by the German Society for Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, for his research on skin repigmentation. Dr Aust presents and demonstrates his clinical and scientific results at many international congresses annually. He has published numerous scientific papers as the co-author with Svenja Bahte and Desmond Fernandes “Illustrated Guide to Percutaneous Collagen Induction” book in 2014, which was translated into three different languages.



Environ Skin Care is a globally recognised and loved professional skincare brand that is built on science, beauty, and care. Since 1990, Environ has used the science of beauty to change the way the world sees skincare.

The introduction of vitamin A to skincare formulations was a ground-breaking development, first successfully included in cosmetic products by top plastic surgeon, skincare pioneer, and Environ founder Dr Des Fernandes. His sister, Val Carstens, Environ’s Chairman, has built the brand from a dream to a global success. Today the brand has over 140 products in more than 70 countries.

Environ has received over 100 international awards which have recognised the brand for its outstanding products, most recently being voted Top Medical Skincare Line of the Decade in the highly revered Aesthetic Everything® Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine Awards. Environ is favoured by international skincare therapists, the medical fraternity, beauty editors, aestheticians, and film stars.
