Skin goes through changes throughout our lives and it is only common sense that each phase should be treated in its own way, to supply its particular needs. The term “mature skin” is not a polite way of saying “old,” it describes certain conditions in the skin’s structure, appearance and requirements. La Roche Posay Substiane Products were developed to provide specific ingredients that can help mature skin look firmer, smoother and with a more youthful glow.
Dermatology studies have shown that the primary changes which occur in the skin as it ages are loss of tone, appearance of lines and wrinkles and decline in appropriate levels of hydration. La Roche Posay Substiane Products address all of these challenges, providing a suite of botanical extracts, emollients and laboratory developed proprietary treatments. Specifically, Pro-Xylane™ works to encourage the skin tissue to produce collagen, providing better firmness to the skin. La Roche Posay Substiane Products also include Linactyl, a treatment that helps to strengthen the activity of dermal papillary fibroblasts, which are structures deep in the skin that keep the epidermis active and healthy.

Additional La Roche Posay Products Information
Skin can be defined as “mature” surprisingly early in life, sometime in the mid-20s. The causes of the changes that make skin mature are not necessarily age alone; exposure to sun, wind, extremes of temperature and humidity, diet, illness and even genetics can contribute. La Roche Posay Substiane Products are formulated to work on the skin’s structure so that, whatever the root causes, firmness is restored, lines and wrinkles are reduced, hydration is restored and the skin regains a glowing, youthful appearance.
By stimulating the production of collagen and strengthening the activity of dermal papillae, La Roche Posay Substiane firms the skin and reduces the slack or sagging areas of the face and neck. The inclusion of shea butter and apricot kernel oil as emollients helps rehydrate the skin, helping to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, the skin looked firmer, more toned and with renewed radiance. Simply apply to the face and neck every morning and night. It also makes an excellent base for make-up.
The area around the eyes can be difficult; the skin in the eye zone is the thinnest on the face, and therefore is more prone to lines, wrinkles and bags. La Roche Posay Substiane Eyes is specifically formulated to help these conditions. In addition to rebuilding collagen and encouraging the dermal papillae, this formula also provides botanical emollients to rehydrate and refresh dry skin. Stearic acid and palmitic acid also help to tighten the skin, smooth out lines and wrinkles and reduce the appearance of bags.
