Retinol is the number one ingredient recommended by dermatologists for slowing the signs of skin aging and helping to maintain a youthful appearance. RoC® Retinol takes it up a notch through clinically proven, proprietary technology with enhanced tolerability, effectiveness and better results over time.
How skin benefits from daily retinol use.
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that naturally occurs in human skin. When employed regularly in a topical treatment, it can help improve skin firmness, visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles – and even help minimize the look of crow’s feet and dark circles in the eye area.
The RoC® Retinol difference.
RoC® was the first to stabilize retinol more than 25 years ago. With over 100 clinical studies, including 75 safety studies, and over 35 patents, RoC® Retinol is clinically proven to deliver the anti-aging, pro-skin health benefits of retinol with minimal irritation.
As the leaders in retinol we wanted to help breakdown some of the common misconceptions around retinol use.
Fact: The sooner you include retinol in your regimen, the better.
Beginning in your 20s, your skin starts to lose collagen. Incorporating retinol into a daily skincare regimen sooner in life is the key to preserving youthful looking skin down the road. By boosting skin’s own natural renewal process, a daily regimen that features RoC® Retinol can delay the appearance of multiple signs of aging – including visible fine lines and wrinkles, while helping to maintain elasticity.
Fact: RoC® Regimens are designed so you can layer multiple products.
It is a common misconception that all retinol is irritating to the skin and should only be used at night in a single treatment. RoC® Retinol is uniquely formulated to be well-tolerated by the skin – and to be layered in both AM and PM routines. In addition, other beneficial actives in the proprietary blend of our formulas helps balance moisture, oil, and lipids to protect against the sensitivity common to retinol use. By creating an overall environment for healthy, balanced skin to thrive, RoC® formulas help prevent common side effects, including redness and flaking.
Fact: Not all retinols are created equal.
While retinol is one of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients available, it is also one of the most unstable. Exposure to air, light and heat can diminish the retinol potency, and even render it ineffective entirely. As a result, many skincare products containing retinol lose their effectiveness as soon as you open the bottle. RoC® has perfected ways to keep RoC® Retinol stable over time with over 35 global patents on its stabilizing technologies, its unique formulations and delivery systems for sustained efficacy and superior tolerance.
Fact: We are constantly innovating our formulas to pioneer new ways of using retinol.
As the pioneer in retinol, we are always striving to advance innovations in anti-aging. Our newest innovation, RoC® Retinol Correxion® Line Smoothing Night Serum Capsules are clinically proven to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles in as little as one night. This breakthrough formula comes in single-use biodegradable capsules to seal in the freshest, most potent dose of retinol and assure maximum potency and efficacy.
