La Roche Posay Toleriane

La Roche Posay Toleriane is manufactured in France, where La Roche Posay’s company was originally founded.  La Roche Posay is actually named after its exact location in France, a small village in Torraine. 

Considering the name of the company, you may understand how apt it is when you realize that  Roche, in English, means “rock.”  A skin care line that firms and structures your skin, makes it stronger, could not have a better name.  The natural springs of water and the spa waters flowing down over the natural rock (Roche) formations in La Roche Posay are a key ingredient in its products.  The pure, natural spring waters that flow over the ancient rocks in Torraine are a key to La Roche Posay Toleriane’s ingredients.  La Roche is famous for its natural spas and its excellent mineral waters that flow throughout the town.  For over five hundred years, these waters have been famed for their healing properties.  These natural springs have inspired the resulting skincare line of La Roche Posay Toleriane.

La Roche Posay Toleriane is a completely naturally made product, with no outside elements being added until the packaging comes into play.  And even the packaging is eco-friendly!

La Roche Posay Toleriane is a cleanser that is excellent for sensitive, dry, and problematic skin types.  It has a very gentle, natural scent that is tolerable by nearly all skin types.  As gentle as La Roche Posay Toleriane cleanser may be, it is strong enough to remove dirt, oils and make-up, including stubborn eye make-ups and waterproofed mascaras.  La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide was developed for use by those with sensitive skin, dry skin, and even those with eczema or rosacea. 

La Roche Posay Toleriane is a gentle lotion cleanser that is free of surfactants.  This is important, as various surfactants (a mixture of compounds and phospholipids) are known to be dangerous to animals, nature and humans.  La Roshe Posay Toleriane is also non-comedogenic.  A comedo is a type of blemish or pimple that can appear when a pore is clogged with dirt or oils.  The hair follicle inside the pore is where the pimple or comedo begins to form.  A red pimple, a blackhead or a whitehead can appear on the skin’s surface.  A non-comedogenic cleanser such as La Roche Posay Toleriane is free of oils.  This cleanser will get rid of the excess oils in your skin while keeping in the moistness and nutrients that are still needed for the skin to thrive and be healthy.

 If your skin is irritated, La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide will soothe it and give it moisture that will sink in quickly and last for the entire day.  It can be applied before putting on your makeup in the morning to be used as  a nice moist base.  La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide comes in a patented 1.35 ounce pump bottle that makes it easy to dispense and eliminates the chance of any cross contamination, as your fingers do not have to delve inside a jar and touch the rest of the product.  There is also no oxidation of the lotion, no dry residue and no waste of your product with this pump bottle.  The patented lotion dispenser is just one more piece of evidence that La Roche has given great thought in their development of this product. 

La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide’s ingredients include:  Aqua/Water, Squalane, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Carbomer, Ethylhexyloxy-glycerin/Ethylhexyglycerin, Capryl Glycol/Caprylyl Glycol. 

This is an excellent cleanser for intolerant skin types: those whose skin does not react well to most fluids placed upon it; some people’s skin can even react to simple water being smoothed upon it.  La Roche Posay Toleriane does not contain parabens, alcohol or any preservatives.  Keep in mind that the water used in La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide is from La Roche Posay’s thermal spa water springs.  Other natural ingredients are glycerin and shea butter.

The science used to test La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide proves its abilities to help those with skin issues.  In test studies, users of La Roche Posay Toleriane found a 55% reduction in their skin issues (such as rosacea, eczema,blemishes and dry skin) and with general irritability.  More than a third of users found a 35% reduction in their skin feeling overly heated or just too reddened.  With La Roche Posay Toleriane your skin is treated with natural ingredients and protected from any further damage or irritation.

The La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide is applied to the face and neck in the morning and evening, after cleansing.
