Description

La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+ is a balm that is formulated for rehydrating dry to very dry skin.

Many of the standard soaps, creams, lotions, and gels used to cleanse and maintain skin contain harmful irritants that can further dehydrate already dry skin. Even some moisturisers contain irritants like parabens and fragrances. These can increase itchiness and scratching that further damages the skin.

This balm from La Roche-Posay can be used to moisturise even sensitive skin because it contains none of these common irritants. It can be used by infants and children, as well as adults.

Lipikar Baume AP+ is enriched with aqua posae filiformis and contains natural oils like shea butter that help to replenish the skin’s natural protective barrier, increasing moisture levels and bringing lasting hydration. This, in turn, soothes and smoothes the skin, leaving it feeling softer, more supple, and less itchy.

The balm can be used on the face or body, is absorbed quickly into the skin, and has a non-greasy, non-sticky formula.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find any clinical data on the use of La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+ in psoriasis. However, the product contains glycerin and liquid paraffin which are known to help limit water evaporating from the skin surface.

Furthermore, glycerin is also found naturally in the skin where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers, thereby helping to hydrate and moisture the skin (1).

In dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (2).

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find any clinical data on the use of La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+ in people with atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains both glycerin and liquid paraffin that are known to help prevent water evaporating from the skin surface.

Additionally, glycerin which is also found naturally in the skin helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers thereby helping hydrating and moisturising the skin (1). In dry skin conditions, including atopic dermatitis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (2).
