La Roche-Posay launches new acne treatment
NEW YORK — In an effort to help those suffering from acne, La Roche-Posay has introduced its new Effaclar K Daily Renovating Anti-Relapse Acne Treatment 1, a daily treatment to address the ongoing, recurring life cycle of acne.
For the first time in a La Roche-Posay product, retinyl linoleate (a vitamin A derivative), salicylic acid and La Roche-Posay’s exclusive lipo-hydroxy acid (LHA) molecule are combined to help treat mild acne and prevent its reoccurrence in acne sufferers of all ages.
"While I often recommend a prescription strength retinoid for the treatment of mild acne, some of my patients complain of irritation with regular use," Dr. Hilary Baldwin said. "Incorporating an over-the-counter alternative that minimizes irritation so it can be used every day to both treat acne and prevent it from coming back is an ideal option."
Clinical testing showed a 58% reduction in overall acne imperfections and non-reoccurrence of acne imperfections (two weeks after use), the manufacturer stated.
Effaclar K Daily Renovating Anti-Relapse Acne Treatment 1 is non-comedogenic, paraben-free and dermatologist tested, even on sensitive skin. It is suitable for use on the entire face one to two times daily. Effaclar K Daily Renovating Anti-Relapse Acne Treatment 1 from La Roche-Posay has a suggested retail price of $27.90 and can be purchased at select physicians’ offices, select CVS/pharmacy stores, CVS.com, select Walgreens and Duane Reade locations, and online at Laroche-posay.us beginning in July.

Report: Ulta seeks to bring men to stores with in-store boutiques
NEW YORK — Men’s grooming continues to be an important focus for many retailers as evidenced by Ulta, which reportedly is rolling out men’s grooming boutiques inside the vast majority of its stores by early August, according to a Reuters report.
The 389-store retailer already sells men’s products but Ulta’s president and CEO Chuck Rubin told the Reuters Consumer and Retail Summit on Tuesday that carving out a specific space within its stores for those products and pulling them together is "appropriate" and should increases sales of those items, Reuters reported.
The rollout of the men’s boutiques, now under way, will be finished by early August, and will feature products from Procter & Gamble’s The Art of Shaving line, as well as other items, such as electronic razors, cologne and hair care.
"While I think the men’s grooming shop may increase the number of men who shop, the bulk of the products will still be bought by (a woman) for her significant other," Rubin was quoted as saying.
He said the men’s boutiques would be a clearly dedicated space near the front of the stores, which on average are 10,000 sq. ft.
