Effectiveness and safety: these two words summarise the philosophy of all our formulations, whether they are patented innovations demonstrating day after day the limitless healing potential of La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, or skincare products that have become worldwide benchmarks in the field of dermo-cosmetics. Constantly seeking the perfect balance between optimal effectiveness and tolerance results, we formulate all of our skincare products in line with a unique formulation charter.
Constantly renewed feats of formulation
La Roche-Posay Dermatological Laboratory has a twofold ambition: our skincare must be able to effectively meet the needs of people with sensitive skin, while guaranteeing optimal tolerance to remain gentle on all skin types, even sensitive skin. This task would be impossible without "the men and women at La Roche-Posay who, through their commitment and talent, are able to transform every technological challenge into a success", as Muriel Bayer-Vanmoen, International Skincare Development Director, reminds us.
The creation of a skincare product always represents a new challenge that mobilises our teams for almost two years starting from the moment an active ingredient is chosen. Three guiding principles direct their steps at each stage of their work: the strict selection of the raw ingredients, a high concentration of the main active ingredient and a streamlined formulation that is protected by an optimised preservation system. During this design phase, the formula undergoes a draconian series of tolerance tests under normal conditions of use. If, during these tests, the formula's tolerance is not acceptable (in terms of allergies or comfort), our laboratories start the formulation again from scratch.
