The Award-Winning Skincare Brand Seeks to Help Those with Oily Skin With New Moisturizer Formulated Through Years of Research.

NEW YORK, May 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 45 years, La Roche-Posay has been committed to making life-changing dermatological skincare accessible by partnering with dermatologists worldwide to offer effective and tolerable skincare.

The brand focuses on innovating safe and effective skincare. With this in mind, La Roche-Posay is excited to introduce the new Toleriane Double Repair Matte Face Moisturizer, a lightweight gel moisturizer explicitly formulated for those with combination to oily skin, sensitive skin.


Despite the thousands of skincare products in the market, more than half of those with oily skin remain searching for the right products suitable for their skin type. 60% of Americans with oily skin report being dissatisfied with the skincare products they use to help control/treat oily skin. This leads 25% of Americans with oily skin to forego a daily moisturizer, generally because they don't like how moisturizers work with their skin type1.

Acne, pimples and breakouts remain the most common concern for Americans with oily skin1. There are 17.4 million acne prescriptions prescribed annually2 for this common skin condition. These acne prescriptions can lead to skin side effects and skin barrier disruption. Toleriane Double Repair Matte Face Moisturizer is clinically tested to be well tolerated while using acne prescriptions that can cause dry, sensitive skin.

According to Board Certified Dr. Shari Marchbein, "Because acne is a skin condition with an underlying skin barrier deficiency, dermatologists realize how important skincare is, including gentle cleansers and targeted moisturizers. A common misconception among my patients with oily skin undergoing acne treatments is that one shouldn't be using any form of moisturizer on their already oily skin, as this will aggravate acne. The reality is that using proper moisturizers for oily and acne prone skin is extremely important, not only because they can offset acne treatment side effects such as dryness and irritation, but also because specific hydrating ingredients improve skin barrier function (which is a key component of effective acne treatment) without affecting the medication."

Toleriane Double Repair Matte Face Moisturizer is formulated with dermatologist recommended ingredients like Ceramide-3 and Niacinamide, and ingredients known to help absorb excess oil and reduce visible shine like Silica and Perlite. This mattifying gel moisturizer delivers a unique dual action that:

  1. Helps to restore the skin barrier after 1-hour
  2. Provides all-day hydration without shine

La-Roche-Posay has a strict formulation charter that goes beyond international cosmetic regulations. Toleriane Double Repair Matte Moisturizer has undergone rigorous consumer and clinical testing across and all skin tones. The lightweight gel moisturizer demonstrated the ability to reduce visible shine all day, minimize the size of visible pores, improve skin texture, and reduce fine lines3.
