More than 200 million women* currently suffer from pigmentation disorders.
An increasing number of them are consulting dermatologists to treat these changes in complexion, which affect their well-being.
In light of this issue, La Roche-Posay has added a new product to its Pigmentclar range (specially designed to target pigmentation disorders), namely Pigmentclar UV SPF 30, an innovative correcting and complexion-evening product that offers comprehensive treatment for pigmentation disorders.

The Causes

Skin subject to daily stress

The main sources of the external stress suffered by skin are pollution and long UVA rays. The combination of pollution and long UVA rays produces free radicals, thereby generating oxidative stress, which leads to pigmentation disorders.
Result: the complexion is less even due to the appearance of spots. The skin becomes grey, dull and uneven.

71% of French women* say that pollution is a factor that negatively impacts their beauty.

La Roche-Posay's solution: PIGMENTCLAR UV SPF 30

Targeting and treating pigmentation disorders

Drawing on their anti-UV expertise and knowledge of pigmentation disorders, La Roche-Posay formulated a new dermatological and correcting anti-spot and anti-grey complexion product to provide a comprehensive solution:

  • Protecting against the effects of pollution through a texture that limits the adhesion of polluting particles
  • Tackling long UVA rays through an innovative filtering UVB SPF 30 - UVA PPD 15 system to prevent the appearance of spots and correct a grey and dull complexion.
  • Fighting oxidation through the product's complex [ginkgo + ferulic acid]: Gingko protects the skin from free radicals, and ferulic acid combats an uneven complexion and the appearance of spots.
