Turnover: 1 billion EUR (2021)

Country: France

The La Roche-Posay laboratory produces and markets dermatological care products formulated with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water. Initially specialized in therapeutic products, the group has gradually extended its offer to daily skin care and has therefore turned to cosmetics, while maintaining a therapeutic credibility thanks to the thermal springs from which its products are derived

It distinguishes itself from other laboratories by the care it takes to offer products adapted to each type of skin, particularly very sensitive skin, and to each type of skin problem

Bought by the L'Oréal group in 1989, the La Roche-Posay laboratory is part of the ActiveCosmetics division within L'Oréal, which passed the 2 billion mark in sales in 2017. This dynamism is partly due to La Roche-Posay's franchises: Effacaclar, Lipikar and Cicaplast
