La Roche Posay thermal spring water: a wonder of nature
Legend has it that a Chevalier, Bertrand Du Guesclin stopped at the spring in the town of La Roche Posay in the center of France to quench his thirst. His horse suffering from eczema plunged into the water and came out cured.
A legend that must have contained a kernel of truth for in 1897 the spa resort that had been built a few decades earlier by Napoleon was classified as being of public interest.
Nowadays, each year more than 8000 patients come to the thermal dermatological center of La Roche-Posay for sensitive and weakened skin.
There, patients enjoy treatments provided by 9 dermatologists who are involved at every stage of the treatment course.
The thermal water of La Roche-Posay is naturally rich in selenium, a powerful antioxidant with a soothing and anti-irritating effect on the skin. It has been the subject of nine scientific studies that have revealed the many virtues it has. It can be used to relieve many daily ailments, such as irritation and itching and redness. It is effective in treating problems of eczema or psoriasis thanks to its healing properties.
In 2009, the thermal centre set itself the new task of welcoming patients following cancer treatments.
Its ambition is to restore comfort and mobility to scarred areas and reduce the cutaneous side effects associated with radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatments.
Almost 5,000 people have already followed this innovative post-cancer treatment course. A figure that reflects the growing trust accorded by oncologists to the astonishing benefits of La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water.
