La Roche-Posay Dropped a New Line Just for Eczema Sufferers
And you'll never guess the star ingredient.
If you're one of the 32 million Americans the National Eczema Organization estimates to have eczema, you already know the discomfort the skin concern can cause. The itchy, red, dry skin, is not only unsightly, but it can be painful for many. And although there are a number of treatments on the market to help soothe symptoms, unfortunately, there is no cure. But a new line from French skincare experts La Roche-Posay utilizes a unique ingredient to help quench skin's thirst and tackle eczema.
La Roche-Posay's new Lipikar line puts prebiotics to work to help calm eczema sufferers' flairs. Why prebiotics you ask? Well, recent studies suggest that the microbiome (a.k.a. the lovely environment of bacteria that live inside us) plays a huge role in skincare, meaning a proper balance of bacteria within the microbiome is actually linked to healthy skin. And if you're someone with eczema, bacteria diversity actually correlates to flairs!
The new Lipikar line consists of three new products that contain the brand's signature thermal spring water rich in prebiotics, as well as the new patented ingredient, Aqua Posae Filiformis, which the brand boasts re-establishes the microbiome’s diversity. This then helps with soothing skin and stimulating its own natural defense. And although the prebiotics are ideal for those with eczema, those who don't suffer from the skin condition can still reap some pretty hefty moisturizing benefits too. Check out the new launches below.
For very dry skin: Lipikar Balm AP+ Intense Repair Moisturizing Cream (19.99)
For normal skin: La Roche-Posay Lipikar Lotion Daily Repair ($17.99)
For spot treating flair ups: La Roche-Posay Lipikar Eczema Soothing Relief Cream ($14.99)
All three products are out now and have received the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. You can shop them right now at laroche-posay.us.
