The Difference Between Retinol and Tretinoin.

Although both retinol and tretinoin (a retinoid) are derived from vitamin-A:

  • Tretinoin (a retinoid) is clinically proven and FDA-approved to treat acne.
  • Retinol is found in some cosmetic and beauty products for acne and skin texture, yet lacks scientific data to prove its effectiveness.

But what is tretinoin?

Retinol and tretinoin are similar ingredients with some key differences between them:

  • Tretinoin is a concentration of pure retinoic acid. This means it can be used to treat mild to severe acne.
  • Tretinoin is only available with a prescription.
  • Tretinoin has been FDA-Approved since 1971.

The Science
Behind Skin Cell
Turnover

 

Skin cell turnover is the process of new skin cells replacing existing ones. During this process, cells move up from the deepest layer of the skin to the outer layer. As a person ages, skin cell turnover decreases.

Advantages of Preserving
Your Skin’s Natural Barrier

 
 

Skin barrier function can be reduced due to many factors: age, stress, cold or dry weather, and cleansers. This decline can cause dry, cracked, and irritated skin.

Hydration, moisturization, and skin cell turnover help retain the protective barrier properties of the skin for better protection and increased resilience.
