ROC Extra Comfort Micellar Lotion analysis summary
It’s funny, because if you only read the INCI of the product, the first thing you think is that it is a cleanser for oily skin.
Ingredients such as copper gluconate or zinc gluconate, which are active ingredients widely used in cosmetic products to treat acne or fat, are present in the formula, providing healing, mattifying and oil-regulating properties.
Its presence is not fully understood in a micellar water for sensitive skin. I am not saying that they are not good ingredients, just that it is not their place.
Apart from these unexpected actives, it also includes emollients such as panthenol, or beneficial ingredients such as allantoin, which soothes, softens and heals.
However, of all the micellar make-up removers we’ve tried, ROC’s is undoubtedly the worst of all, and all due to the inclusion of a bunch of preservatives, and worst of all, parabens.
As other products prove, these ingredients are neither necessary nor essential in a formulation, and even more so designed for sensitive skin! So you spoil all the benefits you could have. It is not an option that I would recommend in any case and for any skin.
Without a doubt, any option without parabens is better than ROC micellar water, but given the choice, make it the best. And as number one we have chosen Nezeni Cosmetics water, which is an option that respects sensitive skin.
It cleans in depth, does not include any paraben, the preservatives are minimal, and it also adds hydration with glycerin and aloe vera. You can not ask for more.
