Vitamin A and Retinol

What is the difference between Vitamin A and Retinol?

Vitamin A and Retinol  – Retinol is a gentler derivative of vitamin A.    Retinol is in many over-the-counter skincare products.  

Consequently, retinol is milder; the enzymes in our skin must first convert it into retinoic acid. Once it’s been converted, it will become active and effective.

 
 Therefore the difference between them is depth and working time. 
 Vitamin A penetrates immediately and into deeper layers of your skin to repair instantly. Consequently, it’s the most powerful option for treating signs of ageing and acne. 
Retinol takes a while to penetrate and repair. They are both excellent quality anti-ageing skincare ingredients.  
They’re both made from vitamin A and promote faster skin cell turnover. 
People experiencing vitamin A deficiency in the skin will present with problems with their skin.  The skin can present with irritation, dryness, scaling and itching. 
Vitamin A deficiency causes dry skin.  Because the top layer of your skin cells is replaced in a cycle of approximately every fourteen-day, consequently lacking vitamin A can disrupt this process and lead to dry skin.   Cell turnover is extremely important.
