5 FUN FACTS ABOUT LA ROCHE-POSAY
#1. One key ingredient is at the core of all its products.
This ingredient is La Roche-Posay therapeutic thermal spring water, and it’s very special indeed. It’s the world’s only thermal water to contain a high concentration of selenium, which is a mineral that has demonstrated anti-free radical, anti-irritation, soothing and healing properties.
#2. Its thermal water takes a very long time to create.
And by a very long time, we mean almost 1,700 years. Yep, that’s precisely how long it takes to emerge from the earth.
#3. Its products are safe for all skin types.
It’s true. Each and every La Roche-Posay product is tested under dermatological control on allergic and atopic or reactive skin before it’s launched. If there are any adverse reactions whatsoever, the product is reformulated before being released.
#4. Its products are recommended by dermatologists.
25,000 dermatologists worldwide to be exact. This simply reinforces its efficacy at treating even the most sensitive skins with love and care.
#5. It has four distinct skin care ranges.
This makes it rather easy when you’re at the beauty counter, because you can work out which products are right for your skin with minimal fuss. TOLERIANE is for very sensitive skin to intolerant skin; EFFACLAR for acneic skin; LIPIKAR is body care for dry and atopic skin; and ANTHELIOS provides quality UV protection. (Yep, you read that right. They offer effective sun, body and acne products, too – not just treatments for sensitive skin.)
