If you’ve ever been confused about what the difference between retinol and retinaldehyde is, you’re not alone.
And if you’ve ever wondered whether RoC products contain retinol, it’s time to relax. We’ll explain everything.
Not all RoC skin care products contain retinol.
The reason for this is that many of their products are gentle enough to use on sensitive skin and those with rosacea-prone skin.
In fact, the brand says it’s “the first company to develop a moisturizer specifically designed for people with sensitive skin.”
The retinol-free favorites include:
1. Deep Wrinkle Night Cream with Essential Mineral Complex
If you’re looking for a night cream that contains retinol, we have one with you covered.
The Deep Wrinkle Night Cream with Essential Mineral Complex is packed with some of the most potent anti-aging ingredients for maximum results, including retinol and vitamin C.
Vitamin E and glycerin help to soften skin and aid in hydration while dimethicone helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines by allowing the skin’s natural oils to soak deep into the pores.
In addition to these benefits, this night cream also contains bisabolol which works as an anti-inflammatory agent in order to prevent premature aging caused by inflammation.
2. Anti-Aging Face Cream (Day or Night) with Essential Mineral Complex
You might be surprised to find that this product contains retinol.
It has a light, creamy texture and helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven skin tone while also hydrating your skin.
The formula is non-greasy so it absorbs quickly into the skin which makes it ideal for use under makeup.
- Helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Hydrates dry areas like around the lips or eyes
- Smooths fine lines on forehead or around mouth area
3. Sensitive Skin Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30
If you have sensitive skin and are looking for a light, non-greasy lotion with an SPF of 30, this product is for you.
The Sensitive Skin Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 by Roc is formulated specifically for sensitive skin types.
It’s one of the few products that doesn’t contain retinol or irritants like citrus oil and alcohol.
This makes it ideal for people with smaller pores, who don’t need additional pore-clogging agents in their skincare routine.
The cream has a lightweight texture and was designed to absorb quickly into the skin without leaving a residue on top of your face.
The product promises to leave you feeling moisturized all day long—and it delivers!
If you’re looking for something that will hydrate your face throughout the day without weighing down your makeup or irritating your sensitive skin, this might be just what you need!
4. Age Spot Correcting Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30
This combination of ingredients is designed to reduce the appearance of existing age spots, as well as prevent new ones from forming by stimulating collagen production and protecting against free radical damage.
Glycerin is another common ingredient in Roc products, which acts as a humectant—a substance that attracts moisture from the air and softens skin.
Vitamin E is also present here, acting similarly but with added antioxidant benefits for protection against oxidative stress caused by UV exposure or pollutants in the environment.
This cream protects against both UVA rays (which cause premature aging) and UVB rays (which cause sunburn). It offers broad spectrum protection with its SPF 30 rating
It’s important to note that not all RoC products contain retinol.
However, if you want to treat your wrinkles and fine lines with this ingredient, there are many options for you.
If you have sensitive skin or just prefer a more natural approach, then check out the Sensitive Skin Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 or Age Spot Correcting Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30.
If you’re looking for something more powerful than just an anti-aging cream but not quite what we would call “medical strength” then try out one of the deep wrinkle night creams with essential mineral complex!
