Written by on August 18, 2005 in Rosacea Moisturizer, Rosacea Topicals with 7 Comments

From Skin and Allergy News, July 2005. Think Outside the Box for Rosacea Tx Options.

Dr. Amy B. Lewis, M.D., who is on the dermatology faculty at the State University of New York, Brooklyn is recommending Rosaliac as a rosacea treatment.

Rosaliac contains vitamin CG (ascorbyl glucoside, a slow-release form of vitamin C); xanthine, a caffeine derivative that works as a vasoconstrictor; and vitamin B3, which acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.

“The product seems to benefit all rosacea patients with redness, and as monotherapy for patients with mild rosacea”

said Dr. Lewis, who disclosed a financial consultant relationship with La Roche-Posay, manufacturer of Rosaliac.

“Its `slightly minty green’ color neutralizes the appearance of redness, and the formula is also moisturizing.”

    I have mild rosacea mainly in my nose, chin and cheeks. I started using rosaliac a month ago. Will my rosacea get better or this cream it’s just a prevention for not getting worse.


  2. Hi Merita,

    I would think that Rosaliac will only offer a gentle benefit against rosacea symptoms. At best I would expect it to be a good moisturizer and help a little with the redness. No topical will magically make rosacea go away, but if you have a good gentle regime consisting of a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen you are on the right track already.

    In my experience however, Rosaliac WILL help a lot in cases of seborrheic dermatitis. In my particular case after years of suffering of pain and anguish over this lessions I finally got rid of the problem! yes, almost like magic.
    I know this may change from case to case but for me there´s a before and after in life with this product.
    I use it every day after washing with gel.

    I have been using this product for two months and the results I’ve seen are dramatic. I definately recommend giving it a go!

    after one month use I can not recommend this cosmetic. I have rosacea of type I->II. LRP Rosaliac Moisturizer rather tends to irritate my skin, it had a good effect in the beginning, but then it got worse. I flare-up a little at first, and have to wait about 20 minutes until its gets better.
    Green coulour doesn’t conceal my redness. If yes, then maybe 3%.
    My skin is rather oily (i’d say normal state for a rosacea type II skin), maybe this product is better for ppl with very mild rosacea or prerosacea.

    Here is a review, they don’t recommend it either:

    I read lot’s of recommedations for Rosaliac, that’s why I bought it. But again, I can not recommend it.

    I have tried all sorts of products from natural to prescribed for almost 5 years now, with little or no results. The only creams that would come close to clearing my rosacea on my forehead (very embarrassing) were prescribed and also had some bad long-term effects as a warning. I finally read an article regarding Rosaliac and it’s benefits and quickly ordered a bottle. After one week of once a day use, my dry red blotches had disappeared. The urge to scratch had gone. My skin felt smooth and moisturized with no signs of redness. I could’nt believe it. After all these years, something actually worked.
    I think I’ll buy a case. 🙂

    hi, i have a problem with blushing in front of people and when i’m embarrassed. It happens often and is very annoying. It also brings down my self-confidence and i was wondering if this product ‘Rosaliac’ prevents this from happening and if it is effective? thank you.
