Meet the Family - La Roche-Posay

At The Perfumer, we’ve been careful in selecting only the finest products to fly off our shelves. In this short series, we’re going to introduce you to our favourite products, and the brands who we collaborate with in order to bring them to you. In no particular order (other than alphabetical!), it’s time to get acquainted with our extended family. 


Partnering with dermatologists across the world to create cleansing and moisturising formulas that are so efficient they can improve quality of life, La Roche-Posay develops solutions with skin concerns in mind. For over forty years, the brand has concentrated on sensitive skin and sun protection, finding gentle but effective ingredients and putting them to the test under dermatological control. The exclusive Thermal Water used as a key ingredient in their formulas has been used in Europe’s leading Centre of Thermal Dermatology, and every product is developed according to a strict formulation charter, allergy-tested on sensitive skin, with packaging designed to reduce contamination. 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] SPF 30

Formulated for spot-prone skin, Effaclar Duo has been clinically proven to reduce the size and redness of spots, providing clearer skin in four weeks and reducing the appearance of scarring. This formula is designed to help stop future breakouts whilst clearing and reducing the discomfort of existing spots. 

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume Hands

A saviour for over-washed, painfully dry hands, Cicaplast Baume provides an invisible protective glove-like effect, soothing and repairing the skin’s protective barrier and providing an invisible wash and friction resistant barrier. Quick to absorb, this non-oily barrier cream will leave your skin feeling softer and appearing less dry, banishing signs of irritation and helping skin to regenerate.

La Roche-Posay Ultra Fine Scrub

Gently smoothing and purifying scrubs are hard to come by, but La Roche-Posay has mastered the formula, removing impurities and make-up whilst leaving the skin feeling smooth and hydrated thanks to their Ultra Fine Scrub’s respectful exfoliation process and agents selected for optimal tolerance and a physiological pH, all enriched with Thermal Spring Water
