La Roche Posay creates a new generation of emollients from the microbiome
Skincare - June 25 2020
Based on scientific discoveries of the microbiome, La Roche-Posay has created a new generation of emollients, LIPIKAR Baume AP + M, to better treat very dry skin and eczema.
The new formulation was specifically designed to combat the bacterial biofilm created by the Staphylococcus bacteria to protect itself, in order to reinforce the skin barrier and reduce eczema relapses.
Two of its main ingredients are microresil, which acts against the creation of biofilm, and Aqua Posae Filiformis, a patented active ingredient exclusive to La Roche-Posay, enhanced by the thermal water of the brand that rebalances the skin microbiome, regulates inflammation and increases the interval of attacks in patients with eczema. As a result, a new triple repair efficacy with immediate soothing, anti-itch, anti-relapse effect.
Recent research by La Roche-Posay has shown that eczema is associated with a very large reduction in bacterial diversity, with up to 30% of the ecosystem occupied by just one bacterium (Staphylococcus aureus) and that this imbalance is responsible for very dry, itchy skin and recurrent attacks of eczema.
"In less than 10 years, we have moved from a hygienist approach to a biological one," explains Beatriz Sant'Anna, Director of Scientific and Professional Expertise at L'Oréal Cosmética Ativa. "Before, many thought that bacteria were bad and needed to be eliminated We now know that the diversity and balance of microbes in the skin are essential for skin health. ”
"La Roche-Posay firmly believes in life-changing dermatology," said Maíra da Mata, Director of the brand in Brazil. "Skin is more than just an envelope, it is a vital organ that plays an important role in life and in people's well-being. Today, the science of the microbiome is crucial to better understand skin problems and create more efficient dermatological solutions in order to improve people's quality of life ”, she adds.
Available in specialized pharmacies and e-commerces for the suggested price of 179.90.
