All skin types can be sensitive from time to time—or all the time--, which is why selecting products that suit your skin’s unique needs is so important. Normal, dry, oily and combination skin types require different levels of hydration, and other skin concerns (such as excess oil or shine) can come along with each. 

 La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane range of cleansers and moisturizers was created with all types of sensitive skin in mind. Since its debut, the original Double Repair moisturizer for dry skin has been a customer favorite, so it only made sense that a version with SPF would follow. Now, La Roche-Posay is proud to introduce Toleriane Double Repair Matte Moisturizer for oily and combination skin. 

 Each Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer offering is designed to meet the essential needs of specific skin types (and are dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested, alcohol-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free). Formulated to soothe and hydrate the skin while reinforcing the skin’s barrier, these daily hydrators all feature the same dermatologist- recommended ingredient foundation, (although the consistencies are tailored for the required level of moisture). 

 The Foundation: 

  •  Ceramide-3: A lipid that occurs naturally in the skin. Supplementing the skin with this ingredient helps enhance hydration and support barrier function. 
  • Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, this ingredient provides all types of sensitive skin with much-needed soothing.
  • Glycerin: This non-comedogenic ingredient is a highly effective hydrator and helps the skin retain moisture. 
  • La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water: Sourced from France, this naturally mineral-rich water has a high concentration of selenium, which is a potent antioxidant. 

 With three Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer options to choose from, here’s a guide to the ideal formulation for you:.
