“You do not need unnecessarily fancy and complicated ingredients to make your skin healthy and beautiful.” That’s Rovectin’s stance on skincare. Simple, healthy, and non-toxic is the mantra they recite when creating all of their products. For all those with ultra-sensitive skin, join in on Rovectin’s revolution.
Originally formed when developing a calming cream for patients receiving chemotherapy, Rovectin now offers health-conscious and sensitive consumers daily skincare with the same transformative, high-quality ingredients as their original Anti-Irritant Ultra Cream (recommended by physicians worldwide).
Rovectin believes in only using quality ingredients with no risk for irritation. There’s a long list of ingredients common in cosmetics and skincare that are either toxic or irritating. Rovectin refuses to use:
- This can hide on labels as: imidazolidinyl urea, diazolidinyl urea, quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin or 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, all common irritants
- Methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben are common allergens
- Chemical Dyes
- Common allergens
- Synthetic Fragrances
- These can consist of hundreds of irritating and allergy-inducing “trade secret” chemicals
- Drying Alcohols
- This can hide on label as: SD Alcohol, benzyl alcohol, butanol, ethanol, ethylene glycol, isobutanol
- Hormonal Endocrine Disruptors
- These often go unlisted in fragrances due to “trade secrets”, including dimethyl phthalate, diethyl phthalate, diethyhexyl phthalate, dibutyl phthalate
- Animal Derived Ingredients
- This can hide on label as: lanolin, collagen, emu oil, shark liver oil
- Comedogenic Ingredients
- These pore-clogging ingredients include Ethoxylated lanolin, Laureth-23, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
- This can hide on label as: sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate
- Harsh Chemicals
- This can hide on label as: propylene glycol, ethylene glycol, SD alcohol
- This can hide on label as: mineral oil, petrolatum
By ditching these ingredients, and with the help of some healthier formulas developed in house, Rovectin has produced 5 different lines of products. These lines tackle different skin types, from dry, sensitive, acne-prone, oily and combination.
Below is the scoop on their best selling line, the Aqua Enriched Line which utilizes the utility of hyaluronic acid and is hypoallergenic, which allows those with ultra sensitive skin to build an entire routine around their safe products.
Aqua Enriched Line
This cleanser is a great simple cleanser to use after makeup remover (if needed). Due to the lack of foaming agents in the formula, it may seem like a gel cleanser, but if should definitely be used with another cleanser if you are removing sunscreen or makeup. You can feel it’s gentle foaming take away dirt and it doesn’t leave your skin stripped. It has a pH level of 5.7, which is similar to your skin’s natural pH level. This minimizes damage and leaves your skin balanced.

Aqua Soothing UV Protector
No morning skincare routine is complete without a sunscreen. This sunscreen acts as another moisturizer, a slick SPF50+ layer, and prevents absorption of pollutants in the air with it’s “Pollustop” formula. It’s the perfect side-kick for your skin as you tackle your day. Now, it is a physical sunscreen rather than chemical so it does sit on top of your skin. But the formula is so lightweight and moisturizing, we barely noticed!
Soak Editor’s Review
I didn’t realize how much my regular skincare routine filled with home favorites was hurting my skin until I tried Rovectin. What I thought was scrubbing off the day was really just damaging my skin layers. Rovectin’s products can show you what gentle really means and you’ll never worry about the ingredient list being harmful. We challenge you to look at the labels of your brands and see if you need a detox as well.
