ROC® RETINOL:
THE FIRST OF ITS KIND

What makes RoC® Retinol great? The proof is in the results.

What is Retinol?

Retinol is a retinoid, a derivative of vitamin A which occurs naturally in your skin. It’s one of the most popular skincare ingredients on the market today because formulas with retinol deliver visible results. In fact, retinol is one of the most effective forms of retinoid you can buy without a doctor’s prescription.

What Does Retinol do for Your Skin?

Retinol works by boosting skin’s renewal process. It helps remove old, dull skin cells on your skin’s surface and helps boost newer, fresher skin cells. Retinol skincare can make a significant impact on skin’s appearance as it ages because skin cell turnover decreases.

What are the Benefits of Retinol?

Retinol formulations help diminish multiple signs of aging by renewing the look of collagen depleted skin. Some benefits of retinol formulations include:

  • Visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Diminish the look of age spots to leave skin looking smoother and healthier
  • Diminish the appearance of crow’s feet and dark circles
  • Visibly reduce the appearance of sun damage

Why RoC® Retinol

RoC® was the first to discover the method for stabilizing retinol, combining it with other antioxidants and oxygen boosters to make it available over the counter for safe, effective daily use. We have been perfecting this formula for over 25 years and have been one of the leaders in the retinol space over that period. Each of our formulas is artfully-crafted and scientifically-tested to ensure nothing but the best in quality.

Unique RoC® Packaging

Many RoC® formulas are packaged in opaque tubes that limit the formula’s exposure to light and air. This helps preserve the integrity of the retinol formula of the products. In 2017, RoC® discovered an innovative new formula that can be packaged in a jar without compromise. This technology is used in RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® MAX Daily Hydration Crème, one of our newest products.

How To Use Retinol

Retinol formulas come in many different types and forms. The guidelines below apply specifically to RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® products.

FREQUENCY

RoC® Retinol products can be used at any time of day and can be used as frequently as your skin allows. It’s recommended you begin using one retinol product every other day to evaluate your skin’s response to the formula and gradually increase usage until you find your ideal skincare routine.

SENSITIVE SKIN TYPES

We also offer RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Sensitive Night and Eye Creams for people who have sensitive skin or who have never used retinol products before.

DAY VS. NIGHT

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Daily Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is recommended for morning use as it combines our powerful RoC® Retinol with SPF 30 to keep your skin protected from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays during the day.

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Night Cream as well as RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® MAX Daily Hydration Crème are both ideal for use at night as their luxurious formulas will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles while you sleep.
