La Roche-Posay, Vienne, France

La Roche-Posay, Vienne, France

La Roche-Posay is a small town in the Vienne region, located on the borders of Berry, Touraine and Poitou.

La Roche-Posay is home to spring water that is very rich in selenium, a trace element with numerous therapeutic and dermatological benefits.

Legend has it that in the Middle Ages, the knight Bertrand Du Guesclin stopped near the spring to let his horse drink and to quench his own thirst.

The horse, who suffered from eczema, plunged into the water and came out cured…

The renown of the therapeutic qualities of La Roche-Posay thermal spring water continued to grow in the centuries to come.

In the 17th century, Pierre Milon, the doctor of Louis XIII, went to La Roche-Posay to analyze the water for the very first time. The newly-founded Académie des Sciences, sent researchers there from 1670.

At the beginning of the 19th century, Napoleon, upon his return from Egypt, had a thermal hospital built at La Roche-Posay to treat the skin diseases of his soldiers.

A notary writes about the spring in 1573

On Thursday, 13 August 1573, it was at La Roche-Posay where I bathed and drink the sulfured water of the fountain known as La Boette, that I was cured from a migraine and excruciating pain in my head and my gall from which I had been suffering, as were the majority of the sick people who drank it cured of whatever illnesses afflicted them. Having experienced it myself and seen it in many others, it seemed to me more akin to a miracle than an act of nature.

The reputation of the place reached so far that people were coming from Paris and I saw two to three thousand people there...

La Roche-Posay European Thermal Dermatology Center

The Thermal Center, the first European center of thermal dermatology, located in La Roche-Posay, is a spa for treating recurrent dermatological diseases that do not respond to traditional treatments.

It provides over half of the thermal dermatological treatments in France.

Each year, a permanent team of ten dermatologists and one psychologist consult nearly 7,500 people, 30% of whom are children.

Hydrotherapy is used to treat dermatological conditions, curing its patients through use of this unique and powerful water.

Around 50% of patients take cures to treat eczema, around 30% of the patients treated suffer from psoriasis and around 10% of patients take cures to treat scarring and post-burn skin problems.

Treatments are carried out across two buildings, Thermes de Saint-Roch and Thermes du Connétable.

The Thermal Center also caters to patients with rosacea, blotchiness, seborrheic dermatitis, palmoplantary keratodermia, pruritus and prurigo, ichthyosis and lichen planus.

Occasionally linked to skin diseases, oral infections occur in areas susceptible to bacterial aggressions and are also managed by the Thermal Center.

The French Medical Academy awarded its state approval in 1865, recognizing its efficacy on the skin.

Highly regarded for the quality of its treatments from the beginning, the Thermal Center is able to treat over 7,500 adults and children suffering from skin conditions such as burns, rosacea or eczema each year, thanks to its waters attributes and its dermatologists' cutting-edge knowledge.

La Roche-Posay Formulation Guidelines

La Roche-Posay skincare products are non-comedogenic and contain purified ingredients.

The La Roche-Posay Pharmaceutical Laboratory aims to maximize product tolerance and limit secondary effects (irritative, allergic or infectious).

Each La Roche-Posay product is formulated with water from the La Roche-Posay warm springs.

Raw materials are selected on the basis of:

  • Stringent criteria relative to innocuousness and the quality of analysis;
  • Knowledge acquired over time.

Products contain as few components as possible, and none that are unnecessary.

They also contain few combinations of active ingredients and avoid complex blends.

Microbiological cleanliness is ensured by choosing hygienic packagings (sterile individual doses, nozzle-end tubes, etc.), selecting preservatives with the highest tolerance levels for the specific area of product application and excluding jars (the jar is not a very hygienic packaging format and requires a high concentration of preservatives).

Microbiological control procedures are carried out at each stage of manufacturing.

As regards the formulas, total transparency is ensured by full labeling.

A "use by" date is indicated on the products.

La Roche-Posay — Aging Skin Video: Deep Wrinkles, Loss of Firmness

The pathogenesis of skin aging is well defined.

It is characterized by a decrease in collagen synthesis and an increase in collagen breakdown, mediated by metalloproteinases (Arch. Dermatol. 138[11]:1462-70, 2002).

This net loss in dermal collagen is believed to cause wrinkling.

Biologic factors that stimulate collagen production in wound healing might provide similar benefits for aging skin.

Accordingly, growth factors, peptide fragments, and other biologically active molecules are being incorporated into antiaging cosmeceuticals.

La Roche-Posay Eau Thermale (Thermal Spring Water)

La Roche-Posay Eau Thermale (Thermal Spring Water)

The unique selenium-rich Thermal Spring Water at the heart of a small village in central France called La Roche Posay flows through La Roche-Posay's skincare formulas.

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is the result of rainwater flowing over vast expanses of limestone rocks, natural reserves of the element selenium, and deep water over 20,000 years old, flowing through the deep sands of the Cenomanian period.

Highest purity, and with an almost neutral pH, La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is protected from all pollution and not treated in any way until safely packaged.

The complexity and rarity of La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water lie in both the stability of its ingredients, which maintains its high selenium content and the physiological balance of the skin.

Selenium, a powerful anti-oxidant protects cells from oxidative stress (one of the causes of skin aging) and plays a fundamental role in cellular preservation.

Selenium and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water are used to treat numerous skin conditions.

Anthelios sunscreens by La Roche Posay provide the highest level of extremely photostable, long-lasting UVA and UVB broad-spectrum protection in non-whitening formulas suitable for a variety of skin types and conditions.

With the exception of some sunscreens containing zinc oxide, La Roche Posay Anthelios is superior to all other non-whitening sunscreens (sunscreens not containing zinc or titanium dioxide) formulated without supplementary photoprotective and/or photostabilizing agents.

General Recommendations for Selection of Anthelios Sunscreens

For daily facial use as an "anti-aging" (photoprotective) moisturizer effective against photodamage, use Anthelios SX. If water-resistance is required, use Anthelios 15 instead.

For the protection of highly sun-sensitive skin, including photo-allergy and children, use Anthelios 40.

For outdoor/beach use where high-level exposure is unavoidable, use Anthelios 60 Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid or Melt-In Lotion for the face and/or Anthelios 60 Melt-In Milk for the face and body.

Note: SPF regulation and numbers differ by region. US SPF figures are quoted.

New La Roche-Posay Derm AOX

New La Roche-Posay Derm AOX

La Roche-Posay Derm AOX is a new combination antioxidant and anti-glycation serum based on pycnogenol, Vitamin C + E and carnosine, suitable for the preventive care of all skin types, including sensitive.

Free radicals created by ultraviolet rays, particularly UVA, are a predominant cause of skin aging [see the La Roche-Posay UV Exposure Video], however chemical reactions involving sugar molecules and collagen and elastin are another considerable cause of aging [related: La Roche-Posay Aging Skin Video].

With time, sugar molecules within the skin become rigid in the spaces between fibres. These rigid bridges are known as Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) and stiffen the entire skin structure, rendering it more brittle.

Pollution and stress are other causes behind damage which reduces the quality of the skin's renewal.

La Roche-Posay Derm AOX contains predominantly Pycnogenol and Carnosine (novel, known effective agents rarely used in skin care), together with Vitamin C, with the aim of reducing both free radical damage and glycation.

Pycnogenol is a proprietary standardised maritime pine bark extract containing caffeic acid, cinnamic acid, fumaric acid, gallic acid, ferulic acid, protocateuhuic acid and taxifolin. This bioflavonoid antioxidant has been shown to reduce skin inflammation, immunosuppression and carcinogenesis induced by ultraviolet exposure, and to prolong the skin activity of the major antioxidants Vitamin C and E. Pycnogenol also reduces collagenase and elastase, allowing for higher levels of skin collagen and elastin to be maintained, and can help reduce hyperpigmentation. Pycnogenol can be used systemically as well as topically and is also found in Cotz SPF 65 and in the Vitamedica HA+A Program. This antioxidant is one of the most (if not the most) potent, with various assays demonstrating potency 20-50 times that of Vitamins C and E, and single applications lasting up to three days. Combining systemic (oral) and topical Pycnogenol is more protective than either alone.

Carnosine is a dipeptide stemming from diabetes research which addresses oxidation, inflammation and glycation of tissues by AGEs (advanced glycation end-products). Naturally present in muscle tissue, Carnosine attracts sugar molecules to itself, sparing collagen and elastin from degradation. Research in the 80s demonstrated that applying Carnosine to wounds accelerated healing by reacting with damaged proteins, which may be a sign of aging cells. According to La Roche-Posay, their implementation of Carnosine prevents 1/3rd of glycation from occurring.

Vitamin C is an established antioxidant which, particularly in 20% concentrations and low pH, can markedly decrease fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C can also help reduce hyperpigmentation. Despite these latent benefits, the majority of users persist with using oxidized Vitamin C products. The concentration of Vitamin C used in La Roche-Posay Derm AOX is not stated, however is likely to be around 5%. This product does have a yellow/brown colour, however it is due to the bioflavonoids in pycnogenol. La Roche-Posay Derm AOX is a serum and may be applied underneath higher concentration oxidation-resistant Vitamin C products such as Biomedic Potent-C, Alyria Antioxidant Capsules, Citrix CRS and Obagi Professional-C.

Vitamin E (tocopherol) enhances and reinforces Vitamin C's antioxidant roles.

In combination, these three antioxidants greatly improve the flexibility, elasticity, photoprotection and general appearance of the skin.

La Roche-Posay Derm AOX is applied in the morning before other serums/antioxidants, moisturizers and or sunscreen (see selected sunscreens). For oilier or shine-prone skin, La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra-Light Fluid and Biomedic Facial Shield SPF 30 work especially well with this product's texture.

For enhanced effects on mature or aging skin, combine the use of La Roche-Posay Derm AOX with La Roche-Posay Redermic (for greater firmness) and La Roche-Posay Substiane (for greater volume).

La Roche-Posay Derm AOX is paraben-free.

Please note: La Roche-Posay is available for online order by customers in the United States only. This product ships from the United States. Australian patients can re-order select La Roche-Posay products for delivery within Australia in accordance with their prescription by logging in.

La Roche-Posay Active-C

La Roche-Posay Active-C

La Roche-Posay Active-C contains L-ascorbic acid, the only form of Vitamin C directly recognized and utilized by the skin, formulated to prevent the Vitamin C from oxidizing.

The L-ascorbic acid in La Roche-Posay Active-C works to reduce and prevent the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles for younger-looking skin.

The biological activity and stability of La Roche-Posay Active-C's Vitamin C is in contrast to the yellowed (oxidized) Vitamin C found in many serums which is devoid of benefit and may even be harmful.

Vitamin C derivatives such as ascorbyl palmitate (as found in Jan Marini C-ESTA) and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate must be converted in tissue back to the vitamin ascorbic acid to be optimally effective as natural Vitamin C.

La Roche-Posay Active-C is suitable for all skin types (including sensitive and acne-prone) however is especially useful for patients with maturing and prematurely aged skin in need of a radiance boost.

La Roche-Posay Active-C formulations may be used up to twice daily, alone, with an antioxidant such as Replenix and/or sunscreen such as Anthelios, other moisturizers, products and medications (please check with your physician before combining use of La Roche-Posay Active C with medications).

La Roche-Posay Effaclar

La Roche-Posay Effaclar

Effaclar is a soothing, purifying and mattifying collection of daily skin care treatments from La Roche-Posay formulated for combination, oily, acne-prone skin and to eliminate shine, blackheads and whiteheads.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar formulas remove excess oils and clear clogged pores without stripping skin of its natural hydration or leaving it dull, tight or itchy.

Effaclar skin care products soften thickened, oily skin to enhance acne treatment, avoiding the potential of alpha hydroxy acids to harden the skin, leaving it brittle and unresponsive due to dehydration.

The efficacy of La Roche-Posay Effaclar is due in part to several proprietary ingredients and technologies:

La Roche Posay Effaclar Active Matte provides photoprotective and general antioxidant protection through the inclusion of tocopherol (pure Vitamin E) and ascorbyl glucoside (a Vitamin C derivative). These antioxidants help protect the skin from the effects of external aggressors that can worsen oily skin.

Ascorbyl glucoside also helps lessen post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation to lighten skin tone and stimulate collagen production for firmer skin with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

La Roche-Posay Eau Thermale is included for its antioxidant selenium and anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing minerals (see composition).

A clinical study into the efficacy of La Roche-Posay Effaclar K demonstrated an 86% reduction in microcomedones within 14 days of use (Keratolytic effecacy of Effaclar K as a monotherapy. PR. Pierard Liege Belgium. Published in European Journal of Dermatology. Vol. 13, N 1. Jan-Feb. 2003).

Relatively few products contain bioavailable zinc, an important antioxidant for skin, however a high concentration of absorbable zinc is found in several La Roche-Posay Effaclar formulas.
