our story

The promise of visible results and a lifetime of healthier skin.

65 Years of Innovation

1 Focus: You

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.

His 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 women defy their age and 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…

A Legacy of Firsts

Beginning in 1960, RoC® scientists developed the first 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 women everywhere to recapture a more radiant and healthy looking complexion.

UV sunscreen and Retinol were just the beginning. RoC® continues to imagine, innovate, and invent new formulas and technologies with the power to address your most serious skin concerns – from dryness, dullness and dark spots to visible wrinkles and other complexion irregularities. 

Our ongoing commitment is to develop the products you need to look and feel your best at every age and every stage of your life.

Dermatologist Partnerships

From our earliest days, RoC® scientists have partnered with leading dermatologists for the most informed insights into the functions and needs of human skin. By understanding the inner workings of the skin down to the cellular level, we are best positioned to develop effective ingredient and formula technologies that can deliver the kind of results you expect from scientifically developed and clinically proven skincare.



Why are we committed to this rigorous approach? Because of our commitment to you. We deliver on our promises - visible results and a lifetime of healthier skin.

Our innovative products are recognized by industry leaders, dermatologists and beauty editors, year after year, for their best-in-class effectiveness. We believe it’s our innovative, scientific approach to skincare that has set the bar for our award-winning products and continues to raise it.



We may have developed the first hypoallergenic product, the first sunscreen and the first over-the-counter Retinol, but that’s just the beginning. We continue to research, reinvent, and innovate to develop new formulas. By building on our past and looking to the future, we’re committed to helping you be your best at every age.
