Retinoids VS. Retinols
The differences between Retinoids and Retinols are slim:
Retinoids are stronger, the RX kind mostly associated with prescriptions you’d receive from a doctor.
Retinols tend to be less expensive often generic in form. The common connection is acid. Whether it’s Retinoids or Retinols you are essentially applying Retinoic acid to your skin. Both ingredients convert to Retinoic acid once applied.
