When Skin's Physiological Balance Is Disrupted

When Skin's Physiological Balance Is Disrupted

La Roche-Posay Psychological Cleansers

Every day, the skin’s surface accumulates dirt, sweat, air pollution and bacteria which can clog pores, irritate skin and accelerate skin aging.

Did You Know - When Skin's Physiological Balance Is Disrupted

The skin has a natural defense system that protects it from external aggressors that cause damage and irritation. However, when the skin’s physiological balance is disrupted, which can occur from harsh cleansing, its defense system is weakened.

Now, for the first time, La Roche-Posay laboratories extends its dermatological commitment to skin cleansing with the launch of Psychological Cleansers designed to effectively cleanse the skin, while respecting its physiological balance (barrier function).

The La Roche-Posay Psychological Cleansers line consists of three innovative products that are:

Purifying: Deeply cleanse to eliminate impurities (dirt, oil, make-up).

Protective: Preserve skin’s natural defenses. Hydrate and soothe the skin.

Pleasant: A variety of mildly-scented formulas.

They also are:

1. Balanced pH

2. Soap-free

3. Paraben-free

4. Safe for sensitive skin

La Roche-Posay Physiological Cleansers follow rigorous formulation demands to offer optimal efficacy, tested under dermatological control without compromising tolerance:

• Optimal safety of cleansing ingredients – each product is formulated with Poloxamer, a cleansing agent so mild, it is used in contact lens solution
