When cultivated in La Roche-Posay water-containing medium, Vitroscilla Filiformis becomes a “super bacteria” named Aqua Posae Filiformis (or APF) with extra properties.
This bacterium, naturally present in very few thermal waters, has recognized properties, especially on atopic-prone skin.
WHERE DOES IT
This unique thermal bacterial extract is obtained using biotechnology.
- The probiotic VF bacterium is cultivated in a medium enriched with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water.
- As the latter contains rare trace elements (e.g. selenium), they act as a booster of VF beneficial biological properties.
- Once boosted, it becomes the prebiotic APF.
- APF then undergoes a fragmentation process to obtain the desired bacterial extract.

WHAT IS IT
A microbiome and/or physical barrier imbalance has been associated with atopic-prone skin as well as with acne-prone skin.
In addition to its antioxidant properties, APF helps rebalancing skin microbiome and strengthening skin barrier function.
When integrated into cosmetic products, it contributes to reduce itching sensations and to space severe dryness attacks for atopic-prone skin, and to improve comfort for acne-prone skin.
HOW AQUA POSAE FILIFORMIS
IS USED AT LA ROCHE-POSAY
Microbiome is a natural biological barrier that acts as an invisible shield that protects skin against external aggressions.
WHY DO DERMS
Dermatologists have recognized the importance of microbiome and the need to respect its balance.
Cosmetics that promote microbiome respect & balance can help with the management of skin disorders in order to keep skin healthy in the long run.
WHY AND HOW DO
Developed to rebalance microbiome and / or strengthen skin barrier function,
WE USE IT AT LRP?
the presence of Aqua Posae Filiformis on the skin strengthens its natural defenses.
Thus, it plays an essential role on the triggering factors of dryness attacks and irritation associated with very dry or atopic-prone skin.
It also represents a winning asset to contribute to acne-prone skin daily care.
