La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar skincare line is a dermatologist (and customer) favorite for hydrating and soothing dry to extra dry, eczema-prone skin on the body and face—and the brand-new Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil offers another safe, effective way to wash from head to toe.

Healthy, comfortable skin starts in the shower, and this oil-based face and body cleanser transforms into a rich foam upon contact with water to gently remove dirt and debris. Designed to infuse the skin with up to 24 hours of hydration, it also helps protect sensitive skin from the harsh drying effects of water—and has received the National Eczema Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

The ingredients

Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil harnesses the power of ingredients that have been proven to improve dry to extra-dry, sensitive skin. Rich in minerals, trace elements and the powerful antioxidant selenium, La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water sourced from France works to soothe and comfort the skin.

This calming cleansing oil is also formulated with sustainable sourced shea butter from Burkina Faso in West Africa, which provides much-needed hydration and helps lock moisture into the skin. La Roche-Posay has also partnered with 20,000 women in Burkina Faso to harvest the shea nuts, and all shea butter extraction is performed locally to boost these rural economies. The addition of niacinamide provides soothing benefits and helps rebalance the skin barrier, while glycerin helps attract moisture from the environment to optimize skin hydration.

In addition to effective hydration and soothing, this oil-to-foam cleanser is ideal for the entire family. Safe for babies two weeks old and up including a baby’s scalp, Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil has their hygiene and moisturizing needs covered, including areas that can be prone to dryness. This gentle yet effective formula is also suitable for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy (however, you should consult your cancer-care team prior to use).

For optimal patient safety and results, Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil is dermatologist-, sensitive skin- and allergy-tested as well as non-comedogenic and free of soap, phthalates, parabens, and fragrance.

Complete your Lipikar Skincare Regimen

To make the most of Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil’s in-shower benefits, seal in skin moisture afterwards with Lipikar AP+M Triple Repair Moisturizing Cream. Formulated to replenish skin lipids, restore the skin’s protective barrier, and rebalance the skin microbiome, this moisturizer has been clinically shown to provide up to 48 hours of hydration. Featuring shea butter, glycerin, niacinamide and La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water, it’s safe for the entire family’s sensitive skin, including babies two weeks and older. This comforting cream has also received the National Eczema Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

If you and your family want to take a proactive approach that helps hydrate and soothe dry, eczema-prone, sensitive skin, discover the benefits of La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar line for yourself!
