La Roche-Posay was the Fastest Growing Skincare Brand for the Second Year in a Row, According to Nielsen IQ!



NEW YORK, April 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — La Roche-Posay is proud to announce that it was the fastest growing skincare brand in 20231, for the second year in a row! According to NielsenIQ, the industry leader in market CPG research, the brand ranked first among top 20 brands based on dollar sales growth for full-year 2023 vs. full-year 2022.

La Roche-Posay

Recommended by over 90,000 dermatologists2, La Roche-Posay has always been committed to pioneering life-changing skincare for all. Partnering with dermatologists worldwide, the brand has cemented its place at the forefront of skincare science and research, formulating safe and effective products that are dermatologist developed and tested. All La Roche-Posay products are developed using a strict formulation charter with a minimal number of ingredients and undergo stringent clinical testing for efficacy and safety.

This exciting achievement was supported through various key programs that La Roche-Posay executed throughout 2023. 

As the worldwide expert in sun protection, La Roche-Posay is on a mission to raise awareness of sun safe behaviors to prevent skin cancer, including annual skin cancer screenings by a dermatologist. Throughout a two-day pop-up activation on April 30th and May 1st (Melanoma Monday) at Hudson Yards in New York City, La Roche-Posay kicked off Melanoma Awareness Month to spread the mission of sun safety and encourage life-saving behavioral change. The large-scale activation allowed thousands of people, who may not have access to a dermatologist, to receive a free and private skin check performed by a certified dermatology provider from Schweiger Dermatology Group.

The brand hosted over 3,000 public skin cancer screenings across two days at their biggest SOS campaign in the USA. La Roche-Posay in partnership with Schweiger Dermatology Group broke the Guinness World Records title for the most skin cancer screenings in eight hours at one location with 1,899 skin cancer screenings, beating the previous record of 963! Additionally, for every skin cancer screening conducted, La Roche-Posay donated $5 to the American Cancer Society resulting in a total donation of $15,000.

In 2020 , La Roche-Posay founded Acne Positivity Day on September 1st – a day to spread acceptance for all skin, encourage others to embrace their unique skin journeys, and foster healthy relationships between people and their skin. In 2023, the brand hosted a consumer pop-up experience on July 21st in New York City to foster an intimate, inspirational community destigmatizing the reality of acne, empowering attendees to embrace their unique beauty and imperfections in a day of self-love and celebration. The pop-up featured an immersive “Science of Skin” exhibit, a zen meditation lounge, Doodle Bar with custom art done by local artists, and a Positivity Photo Booth – plus, free La Roche-Posay skincare samples!

La Roche-Posay is also heavily committed to supporting the next generation of dermatologists. In 2023, the brand partnered with the Women’s Dermatologic Society (WDS) for the second year in a row to sponsor a Fellowship in the Department of Dermatology at Howard University’s College of Medicine for UIM. The Fellowship was created to increase representation of minority groups in dermatology.

Additionally, the brand was proud to support the Skin of Color and Pigmentary Disorders Research Fellowship at the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California (USC.) Under the fellowship, students conduct important dermatologic research with a focus on skin of color, pigmentation, and diversity. Dermatology is one of the most competitive medical specialties and one of the least diverse. Black dermatologists comprise just 3% of those practicing, and Hispanic dermatologists comprise just 4.2%3. A fellowship of this nature can be a step in securing a spot in dermatology residency programs.

For the second year in a row, La Roche-Posay served as a proud sponsor of the US Open to help raise awareness of sun safe behaviors, including daily sunscreen use on and off the tennis courts to help reduce the risk of skin cancer, the most common cancer in America. In addition to providing sunscreen samples to attendees, the brand also be offered access to free, dermatological advice from New York State board-certified Dermatologists. The brand also announced its partnerships with tennis stars Madison Keys and Francis Tiafoe and most recently, Jannik Sinner, with the goal of raising awareness of sun protection as a matter of public health. 

Additionally, the brand became the first-ever official sunscreen sponsor of the Professional Pickleball Association’s Carvana PPA Tour. The Carvana PPA Tour focuses on outdoor tournaments in locations across the country where risk of sun exposure may be higher such as Florida, Southern California, Texas and more. Attendees had the opportunity to receive free sunscreen samples and access to board-certified dermatologists who provide sun safety education and advice.

In partnership with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), La Roche-Posay was proud to raise even more awareness and have an even greater impact within its “Healing Power of Touch” campaign with the launch of its first digital learning platform, cancer-support.com. This learning portal empowers cancer patients and caregivers with the training they need to improve lives, starting from just 15 minutes of education. 80% of patients confirm that supportive care has helped them in their management of their diagnosis4, making training essential. La Roche–Posay is currently the only skincare brand to partner with the UICC, supporting it in its mission to convene key stakeholders, build capacity and build advocacy. La Roche-Posay was proud to act as an official sponsor for World Cancer Day 2023, an initiative created and managed by UICC.

In October, La Roche-Posay was proud to be an official partner for this year’s World Cancer Leaders Summit (WCLS), the most important annual, high-level policy meeting dedicated exclusively to influencing global decisions which impact cancer control hosted by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). The event brings together global health leaders and key decision makers from around the world to debate emerging global issues related to cancer, and provide a vital forum to secure a coordinated, cross-sector global response.

“As a brand who has always been confident in the strength and efficacy of our products, we are so proud of this incredible achievement and greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication of our partners who have helped make this possible. La Roche-Posay is proud to be committed to pioneering life changing skincare for all, powered first by innovation and education. We’re so excited for what’s to come!” – Guillaume Monsel, Vice President, Marketing & Digital, La Roche-Posay

SQAIRZ Dominates Baseball Performance with Breakthrough Footwear Clinical Study



WINDHAM, N.H.  /PRNewswire/ — In an unprecedented move that bridges biomechanic science with sports innovation, SQAIRZ, a leader in performance golf footwear, proudly announces its strategic venture into baseball. The launch comes on the heels of a 10-month clinical study spearheaded by Dr. Paul Klutts, which was presented at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons International Scientific Conference on February 9, 2024.  This clinical study has shed light on the significant impact of SQAIRZ’s patented footwear design on baseball performance.  

Dr. Klutts remarked, “Ten months ago, we began studying the SQAIRZ technology because we know that there are so many variables that impact the players ability to optimize exit velocity.  What we found as physicians is that from clinical and biomechanical standpoints there is a correlation between increased ground reaction forces of the hind foot with batting exit velocity. We are very proud of the fact that these findings are the first clinical baseball performance shoe study that has been published as a poster presentation at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons International Scientific Conference.”

Unprecedented clinical study concludes that SQAIRZ new baseball shoes measurably improve batting exit velocity.

The study meticulously examined the subtalar joint’s role and the effect of performance footwear, specifically designed to promote ground reactive forces, on exit velocity. The research concluded that SQAIRZ baseball shoes, by enhancing ground reaction forces in the hindfoot, measurably improve batting exit velocity. The results of the clinical study findings were groundbreaking: 60.5% of players reported over a 2MPH increase in exit velocity by simply switching their shoes to SQAIRZ. The significance of these results cannot be overstated. With every 1 MPH increase in exit velocity translating to approximately 10 additional feet of ball distance. This marks a significant advancement in sports science, demonstrating the tangible benefits of biomechanically informed footwear.

SQAIRZ is setting new benchmarks for performance gains in baseball as the game requires extremely fast and reactive movements, static and dynamic agility, with an emphasis on precise footwork. Because the only option the baseball player has for leverage, control, and power is the ground, the correct pair of baseball shoes can significantly impact a player’s performance on the field, mound, and especially in the batter’s box. Leveraging the foundational principle that superior balance and stability lead to enhanced performance, SQAIRZ has successfully applied its patented technology to conquer the challenges of baseball with their new GFP baseball shoe.

This unprecedented performance enhancement is attributed to the shoes’ strategic design features, including a patented toe box and wider base, and AI generated traction system which ensure optimal energy transfer and minimize energy leaks during the kinematic sequence. 

“Our journey began with the goal of enhancing performance in golf, leveraging our patented footwear technology to achieve a notable 2.9mph average increase in swing speed,” Bob Winskowicz, Founder & CEO of SQAIRZ states. “This success laid the groundwork for our strategic expansion into baseball, proving our technology’s versatility across land-based sports. After nearly two years of rigorous testing across all skill levels, the benefits have been consistently remarkable. By simply changing a player’s shoes to SQAIRZ, we saw performance improvements in pitching, running, and hitting.  The recent independent clinical study validates our findings, underscoring the efficacy of our approach. Inspired by this success, we’re excited to extend our innovative solutions beyond baseball and golf, exploring new territories including pickleball. This is just the beginning of redefining performance footwear across sports.”

With MLB players already incorporating SQAIRZ shoes into their training regimen, the brand is set to release three versions of their GFP baseball shoe: turf, molded cleat, and metal cleat models. SQAIRZ GFP, standing for Ground Force Production, will be available in May. 

Since 2019, SQAIRZ has been proud to offer game-changing results to golfers around the world, culminating in award-winning models and three wins on the PGA Tour. As SQAIRZ continues to expand its influence beyond golf, this strategic entry into baseball marks a significant milestone, giving baseball players a competitive edge, backed by independent, clinical research. SQAIRZ’s entry into baseball not only sets a new standard for athletic footwear but also paves the way for further footwear advancements across all land-based sports.


SQAIRZ is at the forefront of performance athletic footwear, dedicated to advancing athlete stability, balance, and performance through innovative design. Renowned in the golf industry, SQAIRZ is now extending its impact across sports, proving that foundational advancements can transform the game.

Let’s Get Moving Day – Jan 12, 2024

Every New Year by the second Friday of January, people call it quits on their resolutions before they even begin, with 80% of Americans letting their goals fall by the wayside. Known as Quitters Day, which takes place on January 12, many will abandon these resolutions  – most revolving around fitness, weight loss, and healthy eating habits – after 12 days due to being too overly ambitious or expensive. The average US consumer spends more than $400 on fitness apparel each year, causing many to lack the drive or motivation to move forward.

This year, Sierra is transforming Quitters Day into ‘Let’s Get Moving Day,’ celebrating its mission to get people moving throughout 2024 and beyond.  From January 12 to January 15, participants can enter the ‘Let’s Get Moving Day Sweepstakes’ via Sierra’s Instagram for a chance to win Sierra-branded gear and a $500 gift card, available for use online and in-store, by liking Sierra’s ‘Let’s Get Moving Day Sweepstakes’ post, pledging their commitment to keep their fitness resolutions alive throughout and beyond 2024.

“When it comes to fitness resolutions, especially during New Year’s, we understand how trying it can be to create those goals for yourself and ultimately stick with them. From lack of quality gear to financial restrictions, there are a lot of factors at play that cause most people to drop their fitness goals early on.  ‘Let’s Get Moving Day’ further supports Sierra’s  long standing goal to get people moving their way, no matter the activity, with a little extra push to keep them going,” shared Elisa Pouliot, Associate Vice President, Brand Marketing at Sierra.

Stay warm and comfy while getting active with the help of these super-soft and movement-friendly high-waisted leggings (50% less than department of specialty retailers), which you can wear while practicing your pickleball skills with the help of this pro pickleball paddle (20% less than department or specialty retailers). Before and after your fitness activities, be sure to stretch those hamstrings with this multi-function resistance band (33% less than department or specialty retailers), which you can easily carry in this fanny pack (60% less than department or specialty retailers). And for rest days, reward yourself and lounge around in these cotton-soft recycled joggers (70% less than department or specialty retailers).
