La Roche-Posay Lipikar Emollient is indicated for use on dry to very dry skin (children and adults). It provides lipids to immediately replenish dry skin, compensate for lipid deficiencies and lastingly repair the cutaneous barrier. Its formula, enriched with Shea Butter (10%) supplies Essential Fatty Acids which help to reconstruct the cutaneous barrier, plus sterols with an anti-irritant and repairing effect.
The restored cutaneous barrier resumes its natural protective role. Skin is nourished and protected and feels supple and soft again.
About Irritant skin:
Your skin is protected by a layer made up of water and lipids. When certain lipids are lacking, this natural barrier is weakened and water is allowed to escape, leaving skin susceptible to outside irritants. La Roche-Posay helps restore this protective layer and skin is rehydrated, soft, and supple.
The Benefits of La Roche-Posay:

It is delicately incorporated into all of their skincare products and spray mists. With anti-inflammatory and anti-free radical properties, thermal spring water helps treat certain serious inflammatory skin conditions when used as a therapeutic complement. It also helps to fight skin aging, and its dermatological benefits are recognised by the highest scientific and medical authorities.
