La Roche-Posay is pleased to announce that four of its groundbreaking products were named winners in the 2011 Allure Best of Beauty Awards, appearing in the October 2011 issue. This year, over 236 beauty products were chosen as winners across a number of categories, including skincare, hair care, cosmetics and tools.
The winning products – which will boast the coveted Allure Best of Beauty seal of approval – were honored at an awards ceremony last Thursday night at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled that Allure and its team of beauty experts and leading dermatologists chose FOUR La Roche-Posay products as winners – a record for the brand,” said La Roche-Posay General Manager Yannick Raynaud. “A great product is only great if it is used, so La Roche-Posay develops products that are not only efficacious, but that boast elegant textures as well to increase compliance.”
The winning products and their respective categories include:
Allure notes that “the two stalwarts of the acne-fighting world are benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, but for years, bureaucratic regulations have kept them apart,” a reference to the FDA ruling prohibiting the use of the two ingredients in combination. La Roche-Posay scientists solved this problem by combining micronized benzoyl peroxide with lipo-hydroxy acid (LHA), an ingredient with six times the exfoliating power of salicylic acid- a “match made in heaven.” Effaclar is a treatment that’s clinically proven to treat mild to moderate acne with prescription-strength results.
