With La Roche-Posay Effaclar AI Intensive Acne Spot Treatment
While some current products on the market that treat acne primarily target teenagers, acne actually affects 50% of adult women as well. (American Academy of Dermatology, “Prevalence of Facial Acne in Adults”, 2005).
Traditional Benzoyl Peroxide
Traditional Benzoyl Peroxide, a leading ingredient to treat active acne, can result in irritation, redness and dryness, particularly in adult skin that can be more sensitive. La Roche-Posay introduces Effaclar AI Intensive Acne Spot Treatment to visibly reduce stubborn and inflammatory acne in only three days, while minimizing irritation.
This formula takes a unique approach to treat imperfections with the association of two effective ingredients for the first time:(1) Benzoyl Peroxide to treat acne in an innovative micronized form.
(2) Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (LHA), a pro-exfoliating molecule designed to micro-exfoliate the skin and stimulate cell renewal.
INNOVATION: Synergistic Combination of Unique Ingredients
• Benzoyl Peroxide, which in its traditional form, can be irritating in high concentrations. Effaclar AI provides Benzoyl Peroxide in an innovative micronized form to release active oxygen and target acne deep in the pores.
Effaclar AI contains a 5.5% concentration of Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide which is clinically proven to effectively clear inflammatory acne, while also providing deeper penetration through micronization and minimal irritation.
• Lipo-Hydroxy-Acid (LHA), an exclusive pro-exfoliating molecule to micro-exfoliate the skin and stimulate cell renewal to help even skin tone, including residual skin marking.
Developed by La Roche-Posay’s advanced research team, the LHA molecule (lipo-hydroxy-acid) is a lipophilic derivative of salicylic acid that incorporates a fatty chain for improved affinity with the sebum in the epidermis allowing for faster skin regeneration.
LHA offers precise, cell-by-cell exfoliation proven to exfoliate six times more the number of corneocytes than salicylic acid. (Based on in vitro data).
As a result, the benefit for users is a product that not only treats acne but also helps even skin tone and minimize residual skin marking.
Effaclar AI Intensive Acne Spot Treatment
Clinical testing shows that papule acne (red, inflamed pimples) is reduced by 31% in three days and 63% in 10 days, while pustule acne (the most common form of stubborn acne) is reduced by 33% in three days and nearly 60% in 10 days. Both blackhead and whitehead forms of retentional acne are reduced by 55% in 10 days.
Effaclar AI is also non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested and tested on sensitive skin. Effaclar AI Intensive Acne Spot Treatment from La Roche-Posay can be purchased at select physicians’ offices and online. Now for the first time the Effaclar product line offers a complete skin care regime addressing problematic skin needs.
