La Roche-Posay : Improvement of a formula screened using SPOT

Since 2016, La Roche-Posay evaluates the impact of its products on the environment and identifies possible means of improvement.



In 2016, La Roche-Posay began to use SPOT to evaluate the impact of its products and identify possible means of improvement. The brand has, for example, renovated the formula of its ultra-fine exfoliating scrub, which now has 10% improved biodegradability, in particular thanks to the replacement of the plastic microbeads by perlite, a mineral particle with an excellent environmental profile. In line with its commitment, by the end of 2016 the L’Oréal Group had reformulated 100% of its rinse-off exfoliating products: none of these still contain plastic microbeads.
