“What are the differences between Retinoids and Retinols?”, is a FAQ, so time to clear it up ones and for all…
Retinoids (only available by prescription) are a class of chemical compounds that are closely related to vitamin A. Retinoids minimize the appearance of wrinkles, bolster skin’s thickness and elasticity and lighten dark spots caused by sun exposure. Studies have also shown that they slow the breakdown of collagen.
The most common side effect is irritation. They exfoliate your skin from the inside-out and during the process, your skin can become extra sensitive. Other side effects can be redness, dry skin, Initial breakouts, purging and Sun sensitivity.
NOTE: Never use Retinoids during pregnant, breastfeeding, or when you are trying to conceive.
Retinols are a much milder form of Retinoids. The concentration of Retinoids is less. It’s less irritating and it’s available over-the-counter in various brands, which we are currently testing. You can expect some reviews in the near future.
