RoC engraved on Mortar & pestle


Since 1957, RoC® ingenuity has brought true innovation to skincare. It began with the first-ever hypoallergenic skincare formulations, developed by Dr. Jean-Charles Lissarrague, a pharmacist at Pharmacie Rogé Cavaillès in Paris.

This was the first of multiple groundbreaking collaborations with dermatologists over the years, leading to the development of revolutionary products, ingredients and technologies. Dr. Lissarrague believed in innovative skincare solutions based on advanced science to help people feel their absolute best, day after day.

For more than 65 years, innovation through collaboration has been at the heart of all we do at RoC. 

After all, it has inspired a legacy of firsts…

Retinol molecule


Beginning in 1960, RoC scientists developed the first broad spectrum UV protection in a sunscreen to proactively prevent signs of aging. Their fervent dedication to skincare innovation led to the invention of a method for stabilizing Retinol, an industry first – and to this day the greatest skin-aging discovery in the history of skincare.

By combining Retinol with other ingredients like Vitamin E and delivering it in pioneering packaging that preserved its efficacy, RoC offered the first over-the-counter Retinol product, making it possible for daily use – and for people everywhere to recapture a smoother and healthy-looking complexion.

Award-Winning Products

RoC products are recognized annually for their exceptional efficacy and innovation. Powered by our award-winning Pure RoC Retinol® and other proven ingredients, numerous RoC facial skincare products have been recently recognized by beauty magazines and editors for their exceptional, clinically proven benefits to improve the healthy appearance of your skin.
