For starters, let’s bust the myth that you can skip this read just because your skin doesn’t seem to be aging visibly. It’s never too early to join the anti-aging bandwagon. It’s like your diet – what’s healthy in your 30s will remain healthy even in your 60s.
Now that that’s out of the way, time to introduce you to the anti-aging squad we swear by. Welcome RoC, a pioneer in the world of Retinol skincare and the inventor of the first Stabilized Retinol formula.
What is Retinol?
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that is delivered to the skin and plays a major role in the natural renewal process of our skin cells. One of the most effective cosmetic anti-aging ingredients worldwide, natural Retinol from our diet stimulates skin cell proliferation and the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Retinol also leads to a reduction in wrinkles and lines, thickening of the epidermis and improvement in the overall texture of the skin.
What is Stabilized Retinol? How is it better?
A highly unstable molecule, Retinol is difficult for formulators to work with because it starts to degrade rapidly on exposure to light or oxygen. In fact, RoC’s leadership began with discovery of Stabilized Retinol. The brand figured a way to manufacture and package Retinol formulas without exposing the ingredient to air or light at any point in the process.
Once they discovered how to stabilize pure Retinol, RoC scientists continued to work on additional improvements. Today’s RoC formulas have a lightweight texture that penetrates easily into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
Clear with the basics? Let’s head on to deets about the RoC army.
With the highest concentration of Retinol in any RoC offering, this tiny magician handles wrinkles like no other. Powered by a potent combination of Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid, this master has shown efficacy in reducing visible signs of collagen and elastin loss while fighting against the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Wrinkles… what wrinkles?
Specifically developed for the fragile eye contours, this fast-action formula reduces crow's feet, fine lines & wrinkles around the eyes. While Hyaluronic Acid actively plumps delicate skin tissues, Retinol reactivates the skin's cellular metabolism. One of the proud victors of the Vogue Beauty Awards 2018, double-guessing the powers of this acclaimed product would be unwise.
Tried everything under the sun but still can’t break up with that 24*7 ugly shine on your face, thanks to over efficient oil factories under your skin? Infused with powerful antioxidants, this clinically-proven formula visibly reduces shine, offers high sun protection and mattifies the face. As light as a daily moisturiser, its fluid texture is comfortable to wear and penetrates rapidly.
Looking for a two-in-one skincare solution that can literally slash your beauty routine by half? We’ve found it. Not only is this lightweight fluid formula rich with Vitamin C and Vitamin E to protect skin from external aggressions and free radicals, but it also contains UVA and UVB filters for protection against photoaging.
And finally, here’s the captain of our army – a complete anti-aging solution. Powered by Vitamin C and Hexinol, a patented technology that fights aging at its source, this formula unifies skin tone and texture, smoothens wrinkles and prevents dark spots to give your skin a visible renewed appearance. Retinol rally, dismissed.
