In 2010 La Roche Posay took the opportunity of the rosacea awareness month and their support of the National Rosacea Society to promote their product – Rosaliac UV Fortifying Anti-Redness Moisturizer with SPF 15.
This year La Roche Posay are again using the Rosacea Awareness Month to promote a new product, this time with a product called Rosaliac AR Intense.
In the past their rosacea targeted products such as `Skin Perfecting Anti-Redness Moisturizer’ and `UV Fortifying Anti-Redness Moisturizer’ have only received a few modest reviews online.
Maybe it will be third time lucky for La Roche-Posay.
What is Rosaliac AR Intense?
Rosaliac AR Intense is called a `localized redness intensive serum’ and cites 3 key ingredients:
- Ambophenol a “powerful vegetal extract rich in polyphenols to reduce the size of blood vessels and strengthen their walls.” The extract is from the Tambourissa Trichophylla plant found in Madagascar

- La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, an “Anti-irritant and decongestant “

Medicaments or cosmetic compositions for the treatment or alleviation of skin or mucous membrane diseases or disorders related to an enhanced level of anti-microbial peptides or proteins comprising Tambourissa plant extracts, which may comprise polyphenols.
This invention relates to medicaments and cosmetic compositions comprising Tambourissa plant extracts that in turn comprise polyphenols for the treatment or alleviation of skin or mucous membrane diseases or disorders related to an enhanced level of anti-microbial peptides or proteins. This invention also relates to processes for preparing a Tambourissa plant extract, the extract itself, and uses of the extract.
The Tambourissa genus belongs to the Monimiaceae family and comprises about 43 species found throughout the western islands of the Indian Ocean, such as Madagascar, Comoros and the Mascarenes islands (Mauritius and Reunion). The various Tambourissa species tend to show endemic specificity as most of them are localized in only one island and in only one habitat.
Tambourissa trichophylla is known to contain polyphenols and flavonoids, including epicatechin, nicotiflorin and rutin.
