La Roche-Posay introduces an innovative new launch to help skin face up to allergens

The pharmacy skincare brand has added a new product to the award-winning Toleriane range.

Allergies are a major global concern; by 2050, it is estimated that one in two people will suffer from allergies. With almost 80% of allergy cases affecting the skin, La Roche-Posay introduces an innovative new launch to the award-winning Toleriane range to help skin face up to allergens.

As light as water, the new Toleriane Ultra 8 Soothing Hydration Concentrate is a fine mist spray with an ultra-fresh texture that offers intense hydration and protection. Its pared-back formulation which is free from fragrance and alcohol, combines La Roche-Posay thermal water with just eight essential ingredients that soothe and repair the skin barrier and protect against irritants and enhances skin’s hydration when used daily.

Perfect for on-the-go, this formula can be applied over makeup to relieve discomfort and help soothe and protect allergy-prone skin. The soothing, hydrating and ultra-light texture offers instant freshness and instant results.

Earlier this year, research carried out by sensitive skincare brand La Roche-Posay revealed that more than 1 in 5 (21%), or almost 750,000 adults in Ireland, believe they have suffered an allergic skin reaction within the past 12 months. The results also indicated that over half (51%) of all adults believe they suffer from above average or hyper-sensitive skin.

Supporting the skin’s protective barrier function or ‘microbiome’ which is made from good and bad bacteria, is important not only for effective management of all allergies, but also for preventing their development. Disruptions to the microbiome can lead to the skin’s bacterial culture breaking-down and the skin becoming more susceptible to allergens. Central to ensuring the skin’s microbiome is properly maintained is daily use of a replenishing moisturiser daily.
