In the Spotlight: La Roche-Posay

April is an exciting time at Beauty Expert as we welcome French Pharmacy leaders La Roche Posay & Vichy! French pharmacy brands have taken the world by storm and one of the most recognised and celebrated is La Roche-Posay.

Recommended by dermatologists worldwide, the products are made with natural soothing and protective Thermal Spring Water, enhanced with patented active ingredients. The formulations are designed for all types of skin sensitivity, from sensitive to intolerant or allergic, and improve the skin quality day after day, whatever its condition. All products are hypoallergenic, with no-parabens and are non-comedogenic; most are fragrance-free or with non-allergic fragrance. Let us tell you a little more about this unique water and what products we’re most excited about!

The Thermal Spring Water

Rain water is filtered through thick chalky rocks and is collected in underground reservoirs which allow the water to go through mineralization. This process makes the La Roche-
Posay water rich in bicarbonates, calcium, silicates and selenium, along with zinc and copper.
Recognised as the “healing water” in France, this thermal spring water has been proven to soothe, hydrate, and protect your skin, as well as having anti-irritant and decongestant properties. Using the water alone can be used to soothe skin conditions including eczema, burns and rosacea.

And the products we’re most excited about…

La Roche-Posay offers a wide range of products which can all be tailored towards your specific skin’s needs & concern. From the simple & effective cleansers, to targeted acne treatments with proven results, to treatments for sensitive skins, the range has something for everyone.
