« L'acné, ce n'est pas que des points noirs ou boutons… C'est aussi le risque de marques persistantes. Et elles sont identifiées comme la 1ère crainte des peaux acnéiques »

Product innovation. New version.

A pioneer in the treatment of acne-prone skin, Effaclar Duo+ is innovating in 2014 and going even further in the treatment of even severe imperfections and their effects.

Its Procerad™ enriched formula strengthens its anti-imperfection performance which remains the very foundation of the product: a treatment that's highly cleansing and corrective.

Thanks to its increased anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, Effaclar Duo+ acts on pimples and redness after just 24 hrs of use. When used daily, it opens clogged pores and regulates production of sebum.

But Procerad™ goes even further. This patented ceramide rolls out its anti-pigmenting and skin-repairing action; the active ingredient gets to work on blemishes before they appear, acting at the stage of melanogenesis to combat post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

Even severe imperfections are visibly reduced. Skin is purified, pores are cleansed and shiny patches are regulated, while the risks of red or dark spots are taken care of before they appear.

Free of photosensitive agents, Effaclar Duo+ can be used year-round and is suited to the most sensitive skins.
During these four weeks, we propose that you test Effaclar Duo+ in conjunction with the Gel moussant purifiant for sensitive and oily skins.

Gel moussant purifiant for sensitive and oily skins: the daily routine for acne-prone skin.
This cleansing gel combines effective cleansing properties with the maximum tolerance of your skin. With both limited and concentrated cleansing agents, it eliminates impurities and excess sebum, the production of which is regulated by Zinc Pidolate, present in the composition. Its formulation charter is very strict: ph 5.5 - soap-free - colorant-free - alcohol-free - paraben-free. Its increased foaming properties, its high rinsability and its particularly soft texture help to limit friction on the skin while washing and provide a purifying efficacy and tolerance for sensitive skins


Routine for use of EFFACLAR Gel Moussant, EFFACLAR Lotion Astringente and EFFACLAR DUO[+]

Oily skins are very sensitive to the risks of irritation. This type of skin must be taken care of right from the cleansing phase. For appropriate care of your skin, La Roche-Posay has developed a complete routine to help transform the signs of oily skin, day after day.

Effaclar's Gel moussant for sensitive and oily skin will allow you to gently cleanse and purify your skin, while gradually regulating sebum production.
Effaclar's micro-exfoliating Lotion Astringente will then act to reduce pore size and prevent clogging.
The Effaclar Duo+ treatment continues this regulation: it will reduce imperfections and actively help prevent risks of discoloration.

Directions for use

  1. 1Cleanse your skin morning and night using Effaclar's Gel moussant purifiant.
  2. 2Then apply Effaclar's micro-exfoliating Lotion Astringente to the entire face, avoiding the eye area, using a cotton ball.
    If skin is very irritated, instead of the lotion you can apply La Roche-Posay's Eau Thermale: simply spray it onto the entire face then dry the skin using a clean cloth, tapping gently rather than rubbing.
    Impurities and excess sebum are eliminated. Skin is healthy, clean and refreshed, ready for application of Effaclar Duo+.
  3. 3Take a pea-sized drop of Effaclar Duo+ and apply the product to the entire face, avoiding the eye area. Do not forget the neck and chest area if they are also prone to slight imperfections!
    Day after day, the diameter and redness of pimples are reduced, shiny patches are regulated, and imperfections diminished along with the risks of red or dark spots.
