WHAT IS retinol?
Retinol is a retinoid, a derivative of vitamin A that naturally occurs in 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 prescription.
WHAT DOES RETINOL DO FOR YOUR SKIN?
Retinol works by boosting skin’s renewal process. As we age, skin’s renewal process slows down and skin becomes duller. Retinol helps remove old, dull skin cells on the surface to reveal fresher, healthier-looking skin. Retinol skincare can make a significant impact on skin’s appearance.
RoC® was the first to discover the method for stabilizing retinol, combining it with other ingredients like Vitamin E and oxygen boosters to make it safe and effective for daily use. We have been perfecting this formula for more than 25 years and are one of the leading experts in retinol skincare. Every treatment formula is scientifically crafted and clinically tested to ensure the best quality.
RoC® Retinol products are clinically proven to work quickly and to continue delivering results over time. In fact, RoC® is one of the only retinol skincare companies to have completed a one-year clinical study proving that the benefits of RoC® Retinol formulas increase with time and do not plateau. Year after year, our formulas are recognized by industry leaders, dermatologists and beauty editors for their quality and effectiveness.shop award winners

UNIQUE ROC® PACKAGING
RoC® formulas are packaged in opaque tubes that limit 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.
ROC® RETINOL PRODUCTS
RoC® Retinol products come in a variety of formulas so you can fit them into your specific skincare routine, including daily face moisturizers with broad spectrum SPF, night creams, eye creams, and serums. Although different RoC® formulas deliver different benefits, all are clinically proven to treat aging skin.
HOW TO USE RETINOL
Retinol formulas come in many different types and forms. The guidelines below apply specifically to RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® products.
RoC® Retinol products can be used at any time of day. We recommend you begin by using one retinol product every other day to evaluate your skin’s response to the formula and then gradually increase usage until you find your ideal skincare routine.
SENSITIVE SKIN TYPES
For people who have sensitive skin or who have never used retinol products before, we developed RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Sensitive Night and Eye Creams.
DAY VS. NIGHT
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Daily Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is recommended for morning use. Combining our powerful RoC® Retinol with SPF 30 keeps your skin protected from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays during the day.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Night Cream and RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® MAX Daily Hydration Crème are both ideal for use at night. Their luxurious formulas help reduce the appearance of wrinkles while you sleep, when skin is believed to be most receptive to treatment.
