La Roche-Posay's skincare ranges explained

At La Roche-Posay, we specialise in sensitivity and understand that this can affect all types of skin type – from blemish-prone, to dry and damaged. That’s why each of our skincare ranges is designed specifically to meet the needs of a number of common concerns .

Here we explain what’s unique about each range, the key ingredients within it, and how our dermatologist-approved products can help.

Effaclar: Blemish-prone

The Effaclar range is designed to address the needs of blemish-prone and oily skin that is also sensitive. It’s tested and re-tested for its efficacy and mildness on sensitive skin, while tackling impurities, excess sebum, shine and imperfections and formulas enriched with ingredients such as exfoliating salicylic acid, LHA, and the mattifying agent Airlicium. For best results, we advise using Effaclar’s Three Step Kit.

Toleriane: Allergy-prone and very sensitive skin

The Toleriane range is created for those with the most sensitive and reactive of skin. Awarded the seal of approval by Allergy UK, each Toleriane product has a minimalist formula that’s been through rigorous dermatological testing. Hydrating formulas encirhed with ngredients such as neurosensine, glycerin and shea butter help to reduce feelings of sensitivty while strengthening the skin’s protective barrier. Make this your go-to during times of stress, upheaval or allergy season.

Anthelios: Suncare for sensitive skin

Suncare can be tricky to get right when you have sensitive skin, as many formulas contain fragrance and ingredients that create irritation. That’s why we created the Anthelios range to offer those with sensitive skin, high-quality broad-spectrum protection. Tested and re-tested for its efficacy and mildness on sensitive skin, each formula is hypoallergenic with ingredients such as Mexoplex, Mexoryl XL and Mexoryl SX to provide high protection against UVA, UVB and Infrared rays. Choose from lightweight sprays, to hydrating lotions, anti-shine facial sunscreens and water-resistant children’s formulas. There’s a sunscreen for everyone.

Lipikar: Dry skin

Dry skin needs soothing skincare that can replace lost lipids and oils while providing immediate comfort. Our Lipikar range does just that with body milks, hand creams, and moisturising balms. Minimalist and hypoallergenic, Lipikar is formulated with ingredients such as glycerine, shea butter, niacinamide and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, and is suitable for babies’ delicate skin.

Cicaplast: Dry skin

There are times when the skin needs some extra TLC when dry and uncomfortable. The Cicaplast range is created to hydrate skin –including itching and redness - with ingredients such as panthenol, glycerin and La Roche-Posay’s Thermal Spring Water. Take control of your skin with the Cicaplast Lavant B5 Soothing Wash each morning and night, followed by the Baume B5 Repairing Balm and Baume Lips.

Expert Ageing

If you’ve ever felt that you need to choose between addressing ageing signs or avoiding irritating your sensitive skin, our expert ageing range can help. From our Pure Vitamin C C10 serum, that helps to address a loss of radiance and skin irregularities, to our 0.3% Retinol + Vitamin B3 Serum that is clinically proven to leave skin feeling firm and smooth, each formula is designed to help target visible signs of ageing while answering the needs of sensitive skin.
