Cosmetic Roll CIT

The Environ Cosmetic ROLL-CIT is a simple home-care instrument that allows the increased penetration of active ingredients in topically applied creams.

  • AVST (advanced vitamin skin therapy) channeling
  • Enables the efficient penetration of vitamins and active ingredients deeper into the skin
  • An easy-to-use and highly effective age-defying breakthrough
  • Dramatically increases the effectiveness of active vitamins and ingredients when applied to your skin

The patent pending instrument is designed by Dr. Des Fernandes, a leading South African plastic surgeon and founder of Environ, International skin care cosmetic house. The paradox of the Environ Skin Care range is: The healthier the skin is made from topically applying the products and treatments, the more difficult it is for the active ingredients in the products to penetrate into the skin. This is usually due to the stratum corneum becoming more compact and the epidermis becoming thicker.

The principle behind the Environ Cosmetic ROLL-CIT is that it helps to increase penetration of vitamins into the skin. When applied to the surface of the skin, it creates micro channels in the horny layer (surface) of the skin. This layer is the main obstruction to entry into the skin. Once this layer has been breached, the vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene contained in the skin care products can reach into the depths of the skin more effectively than by simply applying the products to the surface.

Environ stunned the world with the improvement of skin as a result of using the Environ range of creams. Further improvements were obtained with the Environ Ionzyme series as a result of producing fresher products with higher concentrations of vitamin A and C in addition to penetrant enhancers. The increased penetration of the essential vitamins leads to better results.

Even better results followed when Environ introduced modern scientific iontophoresis and sonophoresis treatments to enhance penetration through the epidermis. Clearly the message from Environ's experience was that increased levels of the essential vitamins produce better results with greater normalisation of the skin and more deposition of collagen.

The problem however, is that not everyone can have access to iontophoresis, and sonophoresis. Dr Fernandes, founder of Environ, sought ways to make these special results easier to achieve for people with time, location or financial restraints.

Research has shown that micro-needles that puncture the horny layer of the epidermis help to increase the amount of large molecules with thousands of times better penetration through the skin. Therefore, what was required was a system that permitted micro-needling of the horny layer of the skin without damaging the lower levels of the skin. Because there are no nerves in the upper part of the epidermis, this layer can be punctured without pain.

After extensive research, Dr Fernandes designed an instrument that could be used by anyone, anywhere, and would safely puncture the horny layer of the skin only. Now perfected, this instrument has been launched Internationally and is currently patent pending. The instrument is known as a the Environ Cosmetic ROLL-CIT. (Pronounced "KIT" - the CIT stands for Collagen Induction Therapy).
