Roc Retinol Review


Roc, a company that started in France in the 1950’s and moved to the United States in the 1990’s is the manufacturer of a product known as Retinol Correxion. The company does not have an official website that displays information about it or its products, therefore the information contained in this review has been collected from various third party websites. This fact alone takes a great deal of consumer trust away from the product, but nonetheless, we will review it as best as possible. With the additional fact that this product’s main ingredient is retinol and it claims to be an effective anti-aging product on this basis alone, we do not believe these product claims to be true.

Product Features

The only ingredients we could find for Roc Retinol Correxion are Retinol, Zinc, Magnesium and Copper Gluconate. The fact of the matter is that the only ingredient that could possibly be effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles is Retinol. Retinol is a relative to Vitamin A that may cause irritation in those that have skin sensitivities, while also increasing the sensitivity to UV rays. This means that in addition to rash potential, people who use this product will also need to wear sunscreen or keep away from sun expose to avoid further skin damage with a sunburn. Retinol will work to remove a dead layer of skin from the area where it is applied, so that the skin will have a healthy, renewed look, but little else will be done with this product.

The other ingredients in the formula are natural and generally seen in other skincare products such as sunscreens and facial cleansers. For some people, Zinc may cause skin irritation. If the company had an official website they may have ample chance to show the science and information behind the formula to defend it, but without it, there is little to speak highly about this product.

The Good

  • The product can be found online and in conventional stores.
  • At around $20 per ounce, this product is not very expensive compared to others on the market for this purpose.

The Bad

  • There is no official website for the product so people have to trust others for information on the product.
  • The product is an expensive facial lotion.
  • There is no evidence to support this as an anti-aging product that will reduce wrinkles.
  • Due to the lack of a website for the product, there is no universal product support-only support from the merchants, which may not offer any.

The Bottom Line

People looking for an anti-aging product need to continue looking and pass this one up. There is very little information to support its claims and the lack of an official company website takes away enough trust about the product to tell you as consumers to avoid it. With the lack of information on the product, evidence to support product claims and no real support for the product, money could be better spent on another product.
