Key Ingredients


  • What is retinol?

    A derivative of vitamin A, retinol reduces the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles while complementing the skin’s natural processes to diminish the appearance of pore size. The RoC brand pioneered stabilized retinol for skincare use. It’s also the #1 dermatologist-recommend age-fighting ingredient.

  • What does retinol do for your skin?

    Retinol works deep within the skin’s surface to reveal renewed, fresher looking skin. 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.

  • What makes RoC RETINOL different from other retinols?

    RoC® Retinol is the most effective retinoid available without a prescription. The retinol technology used by the RoC brand stems from many years of research. From the beginning, RoC products set very high standards in clinical testing. The RoC brand’s scientists’ unparalleled expertise in harnessing the anti-aging power of retinol has resulted in the development of products proven to significantly diminish signs of aging. Dermatologists often refer to retinol as the "gold standard" anti-aging ingredient because it is widely available and has decades of research demonstrating its effectiveness.

  • What if I have sensitivity to retinol and/or RoC products?

    RoC products are formulated and manufactured following strict guidelines and subjected to rigorous tests. This ensures they reach you in perfect condition and perform exactly as they were designed to give optimal results. Every ingredient is carefully chosen for their effectiveness and safety-minimizing the risk of allergies. Everyone’s skin responds differently. If you have any concerns, we recommend you consult your physician and try the product in a smaller area first.

  • How should I start incorporating retinol in my skincare routine?

    If you’re new to using Retinol, we suggest slowly introducing it into your routine. We encourage you to follow the package instructions and always suggest you patch test our products in a small area first. Start with one product, applying every other day for the first two weeks. Here are some ways to make the most of its benefits:

    START EARLY - Early use of Retinol products can actually help to combat the appearance fine lines and wrinkles before they become apparent, so your skins stays looking younger and healthier.

    START SLOWLY - When you start with Retinol, minor skin irritation may occur- that’s normal. So, begin with a small amount every other day for about two weeks. Then, gradually increase usage.

    SLEEP ON IT - Take advantage of your skin’s night renewal process by making RoC RETINOL products a part of your nighttime regimen.

    STICK WITH IT - It is most important to be consistent – benefits are seen over time. Should you wish to use multiple Retinol products, we do not recommend layering products at once, but can be used at different times of your day/night regimen.

    If you have concerns about skin sensitivities, we recommend conducting a patch test by applying a small amount of product to the inside of your wrist or neck overnight. If the product is well-tolerated, begin by using it every other night for at least two weeks. After this initial period, you can gradually increase the frequency of use until you're using it regularly in your routine.

When layered together, this combination visibly boosts skin’s firmness by 1.5X and increases Hyaluronic Acid levels by 7X for visibly smoother skin.
