Key Ingredients

"Allure" magazine awarded RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream a "Best in Beauty" product in 2004, 2006 and from 2008 to 2010. According to "Allure," this night cream has a few key ingredients that do the heavy lifting. The first includes pure, stabilized retinol. Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A that decreases the appearance of wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is a connective tissue that is a basic building block of skin. The cream also has a mineral complex, including copper gluconate, magnesium aspartate and zinc gluconate, that helps increase cell turnover. It contains glycolic acid for smooth skin.

Natural and Chemical

In addition to the key ingredients, the cream contains many additional ingredients that include natural and chemical compounds. These include water, glycerin, caprylyl glycol, glyceryl stearate, ceteareth-20, cetearyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, steareth-10, PEG-100 stearate, isodecyl neopentanoate, ethylhexyl hydroxystearate, tetrahydroxypropyl ethylenediamine, dimethicone, squalane, methylparaben, hydroxyethyl acrylate/sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer and disodium EDTA. The cream also has fragrance, ascorbic acid, xanthan gum and shea butter extract. It may also contain citric acid.


RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream is a thin, white cream that is sold in an airtight aluminum tube. The airtight container helps to keep the retinol stable, which is important because becoming unstable makes in ineffective. Using this product can cause your skin to tingle slightly, according to "Allure." It has a mild, medicinal smell. "Allure" states that is potent enough to soften smile lines and crow's feet.


Most over-the-counter wrinkle creams do not work very well, according to RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream does contain some of the ingredients known to make some difference, but even these ingredients will at best only show modest improvement in the appearance of wrinkles. This product has three beneficial ingredients. First, retinol helps fight free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that can break down skin cells to cause wrinkles. The second is glycolic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates skin, but increases your skin's suspectability to sun damage. The third are copper peptides in the form of copper gluconate. These stimulate collage production and enhance wound healing
