Retinol is a gifted molecule with multiple, clinically proven benefits for the skin. Despite being mostly recognized for its unique anti-ageing properties, Retinol has a huge number of properties to efficaciously act on skin’s various problems (wrinkles, cellulite aspect, skin pigmentation).
Retinol is the purest form of Vitamin A, which is naturally present in the body. It is hard to stabilise this active as it is very sensitive to light, oxygen or heat. It thus needs a specific production process and conditioning. In the 1990’s, following 10 years of research, scientists at RoC® stabilised the Retinol molecule. This breakthrough enabled us to integrate Retinol into our skincare products for the 1st time.
Retinol’s proven anti-ageing efficacy delivers multiple-benefit action on the skin. It increases collagen’s synthesis* and reduces collagenases*, responsible for collagen fibre degradation. Retinol not only stimulates collagen production and prevents collagen degradation, but it also acts on the skin cell’s renewal process to provide a luminous and healthy complexion.
Today, many products use various anti-ageing technologies and derivative versions of Vitamin A. However, pure Retinol is still recognized by experts for its uncontested efficacy to reducing the signs of skin ageing.
