RoC® SKINCARE

THE BEAUTY OF EXPERIENCE

Founded 1957

Why are our award-winning, anti-aging products so effective and innovative? They have been carefully developed over the years, ever since Dr. Jean-Charles Lissarrague created the RoC® brand in 1957. RoC® was named for the reputable Parisian pharmacy, Roge Cavailles, where he began crafting revolutionary products that promoted skin health.

The Creator

Dr. Jean-Charles Lissarrague was a pharmacist, and he understood a woman's desire to look and feel her best at every age. He won a following among French stage actresses of the day by creating individual formulas for them, specific to their personal skin needs.

Important Firsts

Dr. Lissarrague was a firm believer in constantly bringing innovative solutions to his skin care line. He created the first hypoallergenic skin care product and the first SPF sunscreen. And RoC® has continued to innovate, patenting the first pure, stabilized form of retinol for use in over-the-counter products.

RoC® INGREDIENTS

Every RoC® ingredient, like retinol and Hexinol®, is carefully chosen for its effectiveness at reducing signs of aging and safety — minimizing the risk of allergies.

Clinical Testing

We put our products, like RoC® RETINOL, through rigorous clinical testing to ensure nothing but the best in quality. In fact, we are the only manufacturer to have completed a 1-year clinical study proving the benefits of RoC® RETINOL do not plateau—it actually becomes more effective with continued use.

AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTS

Our innovative products continue to be recognized by industry leaders, dermatologists and beauty editors, year after year, for their best-in-class effectiveness.

The future

More than 50 years after its founding, RoC® remains committed to providing expert skin care and breakthrough technologies so women can be their most beautiful today, tomorrow and beyond.
