La Roche-Posay introduces CICAPLAST HANDS, a new instant relief hand cream that is resistant to washing and provides 48 HR hydration for dry hands damaged by external aggressors such as cold weather and frequent hand washing

NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rooted in a commitment to dermatology, La Roche-Posay has been a trusted source for skincare for over 40 years. In 2015, the brand brought their expertise in breakthrough innovations, highly concentrated ingredients and clinical testing to launch its highly anticipated CICAPLAST MULTI-PURPOSE BALM. As a best-seller, one is sold every 15 seconds in European pharmacies. CICAPLAST MULTI-PURPOSE BALM is proven to soothe dry areas, help restore the skin's moisture barrier and improve the appearance of dry skin for adults, children and babies. Today, La Roche-Posay introduces CICAPLAST HANDS, the newest addition to its beloved Cicaplast collection in the US.

"As we head into fall and winter, we can always expect for cold weather and dry air to wreak havoc on our hands. But now that we're frequently washing our hands, using hand sanitizers, and wearing PPE more than ever before, it's important to find a product that is powerful enough to care to treat severely dry and damaged skin and repair the skin's barrier," says Angela J. Lamb, MD, Associate Professor Dermatology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Moreover, hands age faster than other parts of the body because the thin skin is repeatedly exposed to harsh external elements. Keeping them hydrated is key to keeping them feeling protected and looking healthy!"

CICAPLAST HANDS, Instant Relief Hydrating Hand Cream, wraps hands in an invisible glove-like layer and leaves them feeling soft, smooth, and hydrated. This hand cream is resistant to washing and immediately soothes dry hands damaged by aggressions at home and work such as cold weather and frequent hand washing. Formulated with Niacinamide (vitamin B3), Shea Butter, and a high concentration of Glycerin, this hand cream leaves skin feeling soothed while helping replenish lost moisture and provides 48hr hydration. It has a fast-absorbing texture and leaves a non-greasy, non-sticky finish.
