Discovered centuries ago in the small village of La Roche-Posay, in the heart of France, the unique Thermal Spring Water of La Roche-Posay has been recognized by the scientific community for its healing and protective virtues due to its high concentration of Selenium, which is a powerful natural antioxidant.
This extraordinary spring water is an essential ingredient in the development of all La Roche-Posay skincare products, and its properties are skilfully employed in the La Roche-Posay Thermal centre – the first European centre of thermal dermatology – in the treatment of skin disorders such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, severe burns, and also post-cancer therapy.
Extreme tolerance and efficacy for all skin types, even the most sensitive, are what differentiates this skincare brand, giving it unquestionable credibility with over 25,000 dermatologists who recommend it worldwide to millions of women, men, and children.
For maximum efficacy, La Roche-Posay’s products are designed using ingredients developed from extensive medical research. Some of the laboratory’s most notable molecular developments include: Mexoryl XL in the field of UV protection, Aqua Posae Filiformis as a new approach to the treatment of atopic dermatitis, and LHA as an exfoliating agent with superb tolerance. Studies with important findings related to a number of La Roche-Posay products have been published in prominent scientific journals such as The British Journal of Dermatology, The Journal of European Society of Dermatology and Venereology, and The Journal of Investigative Dermatology.
La Roche-Posay & Prohealth.
By introducing La Roche-Posay Laboratoire Dermatologique exclusively to pharmacies in 1995, Prohealth Ltd introduced the first “dermo-cosmetic” brand locally. A new concept at the time, dermo-cosmetics rapidly became a very important aspect of skincare that has garnered the support of most healthcare professionals, foremost the dermatologist, but also the paediatrician, the GP, pharmacists, nurses, midwives, and many more.
With a dedicated team, Prohealth continues to represent and develop the brand by collaborating with various healthcare professionals, especially dermatologists and pharmacists. Thanks to this long-standing yet continuously developing collaboration, La Roche-Posay’s portfolio has evolved locally from a mere handful of products back then to a catalogue that today boasts over 90 skincare references. This is a clear reflection of the global trend that has established La Roche-Posay as one of the leading dermo-cosmetic skincare brands.
Since 2004, Prohealth has succeeded in establishing La Roche-Posay Laboratoire Dermatologique as a leader in the Libyan dermo-cosmetic market, and has recently been entrusted with other developing African markets.
