What are the benefits of Botanical Infused Moisturising Toner?
Extremely calming and intensely hydrating, the Environ Moisturising Toner helps to improve uneven skin tone and texture to give your skin that highly sought-after healthy glow. With regular use, its mild exfoliation and strong moisturising properties will soon make your skin feel refreshingly radiant.
Not only does it help to balance your skin’s pH and protect its acid mantle (the invisible surface barrier that keeps moisture in and pollutants out), but it also amplifies the performance of other Environ skincare products that you apply day or night after cleansing and toning.
Faster absorption of the active ingredients in the folowing moisturisers and serums means faster and better results from your whole skincare routine. It helps to tone down areas of pigmentation, while plumping up fine lines and smoothing out rough dryness caused by dehydration.
How does Moisturising Toner work?
This Environ Toner uses a mild AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) at low levels to encourage further gentle exfoliation following cleansing. Lactic acid softens and smooths the upper layers of your skin, tightening and refining while also moisturising.
Niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B3, protects your skin by hydrating and supporting its natural barrier. It helps to reduce blemishes and discolouration by targeting clogged pores and stimulating cell renewal, without causing irritation such as dry, red, and sore skin.
Panthenol, a form of Vitamin B5, encourages healing by soothing inflammation, and locks in moisture for soft, smooth, and more elastic skin. Additional soothing and protecting antioxidants include extracts of Honeybush leaf, restharrow, chamomile, yarrow, and the horsetail plant. There’s also further protection against microbes and bacteria from rosemary leaf extract.
The inclusion of ethoxydiglycol and transcutol enhances the efficacy of key active ingredients, both in the toner and in other skincare applied afterwards. Improved solubility will increase penetrative power, speeding up the process to provide noticeable results even sooner.
More information about this Environ Toner
Much more than just your standard toner, this Botanical Infused Moisturising Toner is a gently exfoliating and hydrating treatment. Its decongesting properties can help all skin types, but it’s especially beneficial for targeting problems like dryness and hyperpigmentation.
This daily toner comes in a 200ml bottle, which you should use up within 10-12 weeks of opening it. If you’re looking for the discontinued Environ AVST Moisturising Toner from the AVST range, it’s unfortunately no longer available – but this product is the improved replacement.
As the Environ Toner contains high concentrations of active ingredients like lactic acid and niacinamide, you may want to arrange a consultation with the team at The Skin Clinic Direct before ordering this product for the first time.
Environ Toner FAQs
While traditional toners are known for being astringent and stripping oils from the skin, this Botanical Infused Moisturising Toner is formulated to exfoliate much more gently. With its extra boost of moisture, it doesn’t leave the skin feeling unpleasantly dry, tight, or tingly.
This product does include an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), but rather than glycolic acid, it makes use of much milder lactic acid. Glycolic acid is derived from sugarcane and has smaller molecules, while lactic acid comes from milk and has larger molecules and a lower pH.
This means that it cleanses the pores and breaks down dead skin and oils gently, without penetrating so deeply that your skin feels irritated and inflamed. Lactic acid is also a humectant, and combined with natural plant extracts, it calms and soothes exfoliated skin through bursts of hydration.
This Environ Moisturising Toner is part of the Skin EssentiA collection. If you’re aiming to build up a thorough skincare routine, with products that work well with each other, then the rest of this range is a good place to start. This includes the following items:
- Vita Antioxidant AVST Moisturisers 1-5
- Vita Antioxidant AVST Gel
- Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil
- Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
- Mild Cleansing Lotion
- Low Foam Cleansing Gel
- Antioxidant & Peptide Eye Gel
- Hydrating Clay Masque
You could start with a simple selection of one of the cleansers, your Environ Toner, and a moisturiser. If you’d like a pre-selected starter pack of Skin EssentiA products, you can also buy an Environ Prime and Prep Gift Set or the Environ Healthy Skin Gift Set.
Like all AHAs, lactic acid can increase sun sensitivity and make your skin more susceptible to UV damage, so always apply an Environ sunscreen during the day.
The Skin EssentiA collection is Environ’s primary skincare range. It provides a full routine’s worth of foundation products to help you build up your skincare habits and get better results. While the Youth EssentiA range specifically targets signs of ageing, Skin EssentiA covers all the bases.
Environ upgraded and replaced their previous AVST range with Skin EssentiA following innovative scientific development. These newer products contain optimal combinations of vitamins, antioxidants, and peptides, and the prestigious Swiss Vitamin Institute endorses their quality and ingredients.
Skin EssentiA is designed to hydrate, repair, and protect using as many natural ingredients as possible in combination with new skincare technologies. When browsing Environ skincare, you’ll notice Skin EssentiA products from their orange packaging (don’t confuse them with Radiance+).
How to Apply+
For optimal results from this Environ Moisturising Toner, use the product day and night (every morning and evening) after cleansing and before moisturising, like so:
1) Pre-cleanse and cleanse thoroughly with your Environ cleansing products. Pat your face and neck dry with a cloth or towel.
2) Moisten a cotton pad with a few drops of this Environ Toner and swipe it gently across your face and down your neck.
3) Alternatively, tap a few drops of toner directly into the palm of your hand and pat it into your skin with your fingertips.
4) Allow to dry before proceeding with your Environ moisturisers and serums.
Avoid contact with eyes – if any toner gets into your eyes, carefully flush them with tepid water. When using this product in the morning, apply a sunscreen before going outside.
