What is the difference between intolerant and allergy-prone skin?
Different dermatological situations
- An allergy is an immune reaction to one or more allergens: a medical examination to identify the substance causing the reaction is essential.
- Skin intolerance is an immediate and local response to an irritant: intolerant skin types are thus characterised by discreet clinical signs compared to the scope of the discomfort reported.
Are mixed or oily skin types in the minority?
Putting a stop to misconceptions
Ultimately, it is the very notion that hypersensitivity is related to skin type that must be revised: while ultra-sensitive mixed or oily skin types are frequently considered to be in the minority, they may, depending on the country and season, represent up to 60% of intolerant skin types.

Currently, La Roche-Posay offers a solution for all intolerant skin types by proposing TOLERIANE Ultra in two textures: one is rich, for normal to dry skins, the other fluid for mixed or oily skin types.
What is the underlying principle of care for ultra-sensitive skin?
A dermatological approach to cosmetics
Currently, TOLERIANE Ultra and TOLERIANE Ultra fluid are, as such, a genuine feat. In addition to a formulation containing no preservatives, parabens, alcohol, colorants, or lanolin, they possess intense and durable soothing power thanks to neurosensine, an anti-inflammatory compound that further reduces skin reactivity.
