It seems like a new skincare brand pops on the market every day, and it’s tempting to want to try everything. Before starting a new skincare product, many people consider what their dermatologist might have to say about the product or the brand as a whole- if it’s effective, if it’s okay for sensitive skin, if it’s worth the price, etc. If this describes your thoughts when looking for new skincare, our newest blog series is for you. We’re going through some of our favorite brands and telling you why dermatologists love them. In this blog, we’re talking about the viral and beloved La Roche Posay.
La Roche Posay products are formulated specifically to combine safety and efficacy. Ingredients are chosen to work for those with sensitive skin and are allergy tested and non-comedogenic. Their products are known for their soothing antioxidant thermal spring water, recognized for their high content of Selenium which is a rare and powerful natural antioxidant. If that wasn’t enough, it’s recommended by 90,000 dermatologists and meets the skincare industry’s most demanding protocols. Because dermatologists are experts on the skin, it’s important for a brand to have dermatologist approval and even be dermatologist tested.
The ingredients used in La Roche Posay products go through extensive testing (over 100 clinical trials) to ensure effectiveness and safety. They’re tested by dermatologists themselves under controlled conditions and measured for clinical improvement, visible results, and impact on quality of life. Let’s look at some of our favorite La Roche Posay products here at DermWarehouse and why we love them.
La Roche Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser: This cleanser, formulated for normal to oily skin, contains niacinamide, ceramides, and soothing thermal spring water to gently remove makeup, dirt, and other impurities. It removes excess oil from the skin without stripping the skin’s natural barrier, all while keeping your pH balanced.
La Roche Posay Toleriane Sensitive Fluide: When you have sensitive skin, it can be extremely difficult to find a moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated without causing serious irritation. With niacinamide and glycerin, this moisturizer repairs and preserves the barriers of the skin, soothing skin irritation and providing 48-hour moisture.
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment: It happens to the best of us; you wake up and find a fresh pimple on your face. Luckily, this treatment is formulated with 5.5% benzoyl peroxide to penetrate even the deepest of clogged pores to clear up blackheads and whiteheads without overdrying your skin, which can be hard to find in acne treatment.
La Roche Posay Rosaliac AR Intense: This daily serum is enriched with ambophenol, a powerful natural extract, neurosensine to soothe the skin and thermal spring water to help visibly reduce redness and soothe the skin from irritation. It’s ideal for sufferers of rosacea and those with sensitive skin. It’s moisturizing, softening and provides long-lasting comfort for the skin.
La Roche Posay Lipikar Balm AP+: There’s nothing worse than your body feeling dry and irritated. This full-body treatment is intensely hydrating and soothes even the driest skin. It restores moisture levels in the skin with shea butter, niacinamide, glycerin, dimethicone, and more. It’s quick-absorbing and non-sticky, perfect for all ages and skin types.
These products merely scratch the surface of all the goodness La Roche Posay has to offer. If you’re looking for an effective and affordable skincare line, La Roche Posay is a great option. As always, please reach out if you have any additional questions.
