La Roche-Posay: Working hand in hand with expert partners

At La Roche-Posay, our mission is to create safe products that offer a better life for even the most sensitive or fragile skin.
To excel in this ambitious task, we surround ourselves with renowned medical experts in order to create formulas able to rise to this challenge.

Expert partners in every field

57,000 Dermatologists across the globe
We continuously work in partnership with dermatologists, pediatricians and oncologists to select the most suitable and the safest ingredients for our formulas, test them pre-launch and monitor them in real-time post-launch.

Our Scientific Board
For all new projects and scientific innovations, we consult with our La Roche-Posay expert medical board made up of doctors from a range of specialties. Dermatologists, allergists and other specialists work closely with us to co-create safe products, even on skin weakened by medical conditions or procedures.

The La Roche-Posay Corrective Make-up Experts


We also benefit from the knowledge and skill of corrective make-up experts who bring so much more than make-up artistry. The socio-beauticians at the La Roche-Posay Thermal Center are trained in psychology to treat the whole person from both an esthetic and psychological point of view. Through unique corrective make-up workshops, they offer hope and enhanced quality of life to people with skin conditions. Key examples include vitiligo, severe acne or healed burns, as well as the after-effects of cancer treatments, which can leave patients feeling vulnerable inside and out and in need of expert care to restore their self-image and self-esteem.

All backed up by concrete scientific research with 550 clinical and observational studies


To date, we have verified our products’ tolerance through 550 clinical trials:

  • Clinical testing under medical supervision;
  • Studies run in multiple different countries on different ethnicities;
  • On all forms of sensitive, damaged or vulnerable skin, including people undergoing or who have undergone cancer treatments.
