1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer*. In 2010, La Roche-Posay introduced the SOS Save Our Skin Campaign to inform the public about the dangers of UV rays and the importance of practicing sun safe behaviors in order to help prevent skin cancer. In partnership with dermatologists nationwide, La Roche-Posay offers free skin cancer screenings at outdoor events and select retail locations.
