Review Overview

Purif-AC Purifying Cleanser contains the drying, irritating detergent cleansing agent sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, and is not recommended. Even if the cleansing agent were gentle, the cinnamon and cedar bark extracts can be irritating.

Claims

Gently eliminates dead cells and removes deep impurities from pores, reduces excess oil to progressively balance the skin and deep-cleanses the skin without drying it.

Brand Overview

RoC Canada At-A-Glance

Strengths:  Some excellent cleansers; many fragrance-free options; lip balm with sunscreen; packaging that helps keep light- and air-sensitive ingredients stable during use; sunscreens with the UVA-protecting ingredient Tinosorb.

Weaknesses: Anti-acne products are irritating and not the least bit helpful for blemish-prone skin; ordinary toners; mostly mediocre moisturizers; no skin-lightening products; pricey for a drugstore line.

Note: All prices listed are in Canadian currency. These products are available only in Canada, while other RoC products are available in both U.S. and Canadian markets. Be sure to check the other RoC product reviews (listed simply as "RoC") if unable to find a specific product.  For more information about RoC Canada, call (877) 223-9807 or visit www.rocskincare.ca.

Note: in almost every case, the product names (and sometimes the formulas) for RoC Canada differ from the RoC products sold in the United States.
