Developed in partnership with dermatologists and launched in April is the new Effaclar Dermatological Acne System by La Roche-Posay. The system features two new formulas exclusively developed to work with Effaclar Duo Acne Treatment concurrently as a complete treatment solution. The system, which is gentle enough for sensitive skin, is designed to target the three major causes of acne: excess oil, clogged pores and inflammation caused by acne bacteria.

Skin condition spans age groups

BY Antoinette Alexander

Acne. For many people, especially younger consumers, it is a four-letter word that can wreak havoc on their self-esteem and is a source of much frustration as they search for the best treatment that will once and for all blast those blemishes.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, affecting 40 million to 50 million Americans. And nearly 85% of all people have acne at some point in their lives, most often on the face, chest and back.

While acne usually begins in puberty, the condition is certainly not restricted to any age group, and adults in their 20s, 30s, 40s — even into their 50s — can develop acne, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

According to Mintel’s 2013 report on facial skin care, 25% of consumers said they regularly use acne products, coming in just behind eye cream at 27%. Yet, because consumers tend to age out of the acne segment, there hasn’t been a significant swing in sales. However, that’s not to say that the category lacks in importance.

BY Antoinette Alexander

In 1992, Softlips launched its first lip balm targeting women with its unique slim stick packaging, and now the brand is thinking outside of the “tube” with its new Softlips Cubes.

The dome-shaped balm, which hit retail shelves earlier this year, delivers a 5-in-1 formula to hydrate, replenish, smooth and protect lips while adding a touch of shine. The formula also has SPF 15 to help protect lips.

Launching in November for the holidays is the seasonal edition in pomegranate blueberry for $3.49.
