"We understand that sensitive skin isn't always just in your genes, but is a result of external damage, including environmental aggressors and even the skincare products you use," said Art Pellegrino, senior vice president of research and development at RoC Skincare. "Until now, the market really hasn't seen this kind of all-in-one, common-sense solution for everyone, that actually reduces the skin's sensitivity threshold, working to not only restore the barrier from the surface of the skin, but from within. We're excited to have partnered with leading dermatologists to create something that is tested to deliver superior results and make the busy lives of our consumers easier."

Dermatologists on the advisory board who worked on the collection include:

  • Joshua Zeichner, MD, board-certified dermatologist, New York, NY
  • Melissa K. Levin, MD, FAAD, board-certified dermatologist, New York, NY
  • Muneeb Shah, DO, FAAD, board-certified dermatologist, New York, NY
  • Nkem Ugonabo, MD, M.P.H, board-certified dermatologist, New York, NY
  • Wendy Lee, MD, professor of clinical ophthalmology & dermatology specializing in oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Miami, FL

“Most of the skin issues that I see are a result of a damaged skin barrier, so it was important that we not only offered a simple three-step routine containing skin-identical Ceramides, but that we also optimally formulated these products with ingredients such as antioxidant green tea, glycerin, prebiotics and lipo peptides to increase their effectiveness," said Dr. Muneeb Shah, board-certified dermatologist. "The combination of these ingredients within the Barrier Renew collection work within the skin, so consumers can effectively and easily retrain and maintain their best skin barrier health."
