    1985
    Launch of ANTHELIOS, first UVA protection factor on the market, for all skin types: children, adults and people with sun intolerances.

    1989
    On the strength of its in-depth knowledge of dry skin, La Roche-Posay launches the LIPIKAR milk. Rich in Shea butter (10%), LIPIKAR milk replenishes the skin with lipids to restore its protective barrier and therefore rebuild the skin's hydration.  The LIPIKAR range has been improved over the years to bring even more comfort to dry and very dry skin in children and adults alike.  

    1993
    La Roche-Posay launches HYDRAPHASE, providing intensive rehydration to dehydrated skin.  Two textures: one rich and one light, to suit all types of dehydrated skin. Launch of ANTHELIOS MEXORYL SX. Launch of the EFFACLAR purifying foaming gel, the first product in a complete range for combination or oily and sensitive skin that suffers from shine, spots and blackheads.

    1994
    Launch of the first product from the TOLERIANE range. For intolerant, allergic, hypersensitive skin that no longer tolerates anything. A high-tolerance programme to restore skin comfort.  

    1998
    Launch of ACTIVE C, a Dermatological Wrinkle Corrector that for the first time stabilises pure Vitamin C dosed at 5%. Launch of ANTHELIOS MEXORYL XL. ANTHELIOS is currently the suncare range most recommended by European dermatologists to protect the skin from UV rays and meet the needs of their patients who are prone to sun intolerances.    

    2005
    La Roche-Posay builds its knowledge of wrinkles through research into healing and launches REDERMIC.
