There are more than 100 billion bacteria, fungi and microbes living in your body and on top of your skin. In fact, you carry up to five pounds of bacteria in and on your body. But before you go looking for antibacterial soap, know this: You want all that stuff because it’s this mix of microorganisms that may hold the key to better and healthier-looking skin. New research in dermatology over the past few years have uncovered that the bacterial diversity and balance on the skin’s microbiome, this collection of microorganisms including bacteria, can help the skin and skin’s natural protective barrier. And, as we know, an unhealthy or compromised skin barrier can cause a ton of issues, ranging from dryness and tightness to dullness and visible redness.
Research shows that prebiotics (nutrients that serve as food for bacteria) work by creating an environment that is able to support a good, diverse microbiome. Knowing this, La Roche-Posay has dedicated more than five years of research and 10 clinical studies to understand the microbiome. The result? TOLERIANE Double Repair Moisturizer, a new generation of daily hydration that has a unique prebiotic action on the microbiome and helps restore healthy looking skin. The secret in this formula? It’s formulated with a high concentration of La Roche-Posay’s proprietary thermal water, naturally rich in minerals and trace elements.
TOLERIANE Double Repair Moisturizer is part of a full line of products, including an SPF version and two complementary cleansers that each feature La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water, Ceramide-3, Niacinamide & Glycerin. Take a peek at the new products below:
This next-generation daily skin hydrator helps restore moisture for up to 48 hours while improving skin comfort. the formula also includes ceramide 3 (one of the most important ingredients for healthy skin barrier function and water retention) and niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 with soothing properties. Studies show that the moisturizer helps to restore skin’s protective barrier after one hour and helps increase ceramide content in the top 10 layers of skin. The formula is fragrance-free, paraben-free and oil-free and comes in an SPF 30 option as well to suit everyone’s needs.
The product line also features two cleansers—a foaming gel meant for those who have oiler skin and a non-foaming cream suited for drier skin. Like the moisturizer, the cleansers include key ingredients such as La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water, ceramide 3 and niacinamide. The products gently remove impurities, makeup and dirt while maintaining skin’s natural protective barrier. They are also carefully formulated without soaps, sulfates, oil, fragrances, or parabens.
