Encouraging dermatological research: La Roche-Posay Foundation

Image Prize
Thanks to the prizes and subsidies it awards each year in the 4 continents, the La Roche-Posay Foundation encourages fundamental and clinical dermatology research work, for example in the field of photoprotection, atopy and skin intolerance.
A European scientific committee, made up of several dermatology professors, evaluates all of the work submitted and awards prizes to the most deserving. Every year it awards 4 research prizes and 5 publication prizes. Since 1985 when the Foundation was first created in France and its subsequent internationalisation in 1995, its scientific committees have to date rewarded 90 researchers.

Helping patients improve their quality of life through educational workshops.

To improve the everyday lives of patients with sensitive or atopic skin, two workshops have been developed at the La Roche-Posay Centre of Thermal Dermatology: the Educational Workshop on Atopy and the Corrective Cosmetic Studio. These initiatives are made possible thanks to the collaboration of professionals, leading associations, the La Roche-Posay brand and the Centre of Thermal Dermatology. This model is now used for many educational workshops organised all over the world to improve patients’ quality of life every day.

Corrective Cosmetic Studio: helping patients feel good about their appearance

In 1994, the Corrective Cosmetic Studio was first introduced in the village of La Roche-Posay, within the Leading European Centre of Thermal Dermatology. It is part of a comprehensive treatment project that aims to help patients learn to be happy with themselves and better cope with their skin problem.

Laboratoires La Roche-Posay make-up, with its high-tolerance line (eyes, lips, nails and foundation), has naturally become a partner to this Studio. This initiative has taken the medical world by storm. The major hospitals and clinics are now holding their own Corrective Cosmetic Studios based on the model used at the La Roche-Posay Centre of Thermal Dermatology.
40 Studios have now been held worldwide. They allow patients, who came to consult a dermatologist, to gain confidence in themselves thanks to a few simple make-up steps.

Educational workshop on atopy: learning how to better cope with your eczema. And have fun at the same time.

Father and children
For many years now La Roche-Posay has met up with children in hospitals who suffer from atopic eczema, via its Educational Workshops on Atopy. Educators and dermatologists teach the children how to apply their repairing skincare. By playing down their skin disease. By increasing their independence. By having fun. And when they leave with their Cream Application Diploma, each child takes a big step towards their well-being. The Lipikar line of lipid-replenishing products developed by the Laboratories for very dry, atopy-prone skin fulfil two missions: functional and educational.

Educating and informing consumers on how to prevent skin cancer

Logo MySkinCheck (small)
When detected in time, 90% of skin cancers are curable.
And yet, skin cancer is on the increase. Preventing it is therefore a priority.

La Roche Posay supports dermatologists in their skin cancer prevention and education mission by organising screening days and placing information tools at their disposal. And it is precisely with the aim of informing and raising the awareness of as many consumers as possible on the risks of skin cancer that the brand created the website "myskincheck.org".
