Currently, one in two people claim to be allergy-prone and/or intolerant. Because these allergic reactions are primarily expressed on the skin, this is obviously a major concern for many women worldwide. For these women, there is TOLERIANE Ultra, the intense soothing care product for ultra-sensitive or allergy-prone skin types. However, beware of misconceptions: ultra-sensitive skin is not necessarily dry.
This is why TOLERIANE Ultra now exists in two textures, one rich, comfortable and nourishing, the other fluid, fresh and cooling, to provide intense and long-lasting relief to all skin types, whatever the season.
Skin allergies: a daily concern
Sneezing, itching, tingling, etc., for thousands of people, the arrival of spring is not good news. At cause: allergies. To gain a better understanding of the phenomenon, in 2010, La Roche-Posay laboratories launched a worldwide survey.
More than 3,500 women were questioned: they told us how they dealt with their allergies on a daily basis. More than 40% claimed to be affected by intolerance or allergy symptoms, whatever their consumption habits.
25% of the French population has allergies, versus 4% 40 years ago. Worldwide, the prevalence of allergies has doubled over the past twenty years.

The La Roche-Posay solution
Two textures for year-round relief
Thanks to Neurosensine, a powerful calming agent now accepted as a dermatological reference, TOLERIANE Ultra and TOLERIANE Ultra fluid provide an intense and long-lasting soothing effect.
Tested on more than 4,000 patients and allergy-prone skin types, they guarantee a high degree of tolerance. Finally, their formula is preservative-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free, colorant-free, lanolin-free. These two textures - rich and fluid - adapt to all skin types, all seasons and all periods of life. They spread gently and penetrate rapidly. The skin is immediately moisturised and intensely soothed.
Make-up remover adapted to ultra-sensitive or allergy-prone skin types: TOLERIANE Ultra Eyes and Face Make-up Remover
Make-up removal is the time when skin discomfort is most likely to make itself felt. In 2014, La Roche-Posay brings ultra-tolerance to make-up removal and cleansing. The high tolerance of TOLERIANE Ultra Eyes and Face Make-up Remover has been tested on ultra-sensitive or allergy-prone skin types, as well as on those with sensitive eyes and contact lens users.
This tolerance is ensured by the product's sterile unidose packaging : preservative-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free, colorant-free, lanolin-free.
Its sodium hyaluronate-based formula, traditionally used in eye surgery, instantly solubilises make-up, leaving behind a sensation of freshness on perfectly clear and moisturised skin. TOLERIANE Ultra Eyes and Face Make-up Remover immediately soothes and restores skin comfort.
For 3 in every 4 women, the skin is the prime site for expression of allergies or intolerances, even before the respiratory tract. In addition, cosmetics are the leading cause of allergic and/or intolerance reactions.

In practical terms
Ultra-airtight packaging, no residue, no waste
The leading cause of product damage is back-contamination: when a care product enters into contact with the outside environment, then returns inside the packaging, it can contaminate the entire product.
To preserve the purity of TOLERIANE Ultra and TOLERIANE Ultra fluid, La Roche-Posay laboratories developed a unique and ultra-airtight packaging comprising a cap, three anti-contamination valves and an ultra-protection shrinking pouch for total product dispensing in collaboration with a specialist in pharmaceutical pumps, particularly in highly contamination-prone nasal sprays.
Result: TOLERIANE Ultra and TOLERIANE Ultra fluid are protected against residues, back-contamination, oxidation and waste.
