La Roche-Posay Revolutionizes our Relationship with Sunscreen

Wednesday, 17 April 2013 | by Bianca Zen

La Roche-Posay’s new range, Anthelios XL, offers extremely high UVA protection and comes in special formulates textures to suit any skin type and exposure. Dr Jean Ho & the La Roche-Posay team revolutionized our relationship with sunscreen on 3 April 2013 at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.




Exposure to the sun causes most the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging but over time, the sun’s UV (ultraviolet) rays damages the fibers in the skin which can lead to skin cancers.  90% of skin cancers are curable if detected in time but as the adage goes, prevention is better than cure.

La Roche-Posay Laboratories priority has always been skin cancer prevention.

The past 10 years has seen the brand’s pursuit of this commitment all over the world at free screening events such as Melanoma Days. Recommended by 25, 000 dermatologists, La Roche Posay is well-known as a sensitive skin specialist.



The late Greek word Anthelios is derived from anti (against, opposing) and helios (sun, light).      

La Posay’s Anthelios sunscreens range combine an effective and patented UV filtering system with optimal tolerance. It’s trusted and recognized by dermatologists worldwide for providing advanced formulations in UVA & UVB protection.

The Anthelios XL range has protected sensitive skin and skin that suffers from sun allergies for many years. It offers extremely high UVA protection and comes in special formulates textures to suit any skin type and exposure



La Roche-Posay’s continuing pursuit and innovation sees the introduction of its DRY TOUCH GEL-CREAM SPF 50+ range in 2013. Its SPF 50+ rating confers very high protection against sunburn which is caused primarily by UVB rays and its UVA protection is reinforced with PPD-31 to combat UVA rays, the main cause of premature aging and sun intolerance.
