In 2017, La Roche-Posay conducted research regarding the skin's microbiome and its implications for eczema. 

According to La Roch-Posay, through its research, it was able to determine that the "microbiome becomes unbalanced with skin conditions, like eczema. Eczema patients also have microbial dysbiosis in both affected and unaffected areas, meaning patients must treat their whole body, not just the eczema lesions, in order to see results."

In response to its findings, La Roche Posay has launched three new body lotions.
