All the ingredients starting with R (Retinol, Retinoic Acid, Etc.) do the same thing?
Yes and no. Prescription strength formulas contain retinoic acid, the magic ingredient that fights visible aging; nonprescription alternatives need to be converted into retinoic acid by the skin at the cellular level. “In off-the-shelf formulas, the ingredient called retinol is the only derivative of vitamin A worth using,” says an associate professor of dermatology at the University of Michigan Medical School. “There’s a lot of literature showing that while retinol is more gentle than retinoic acid, biochemically it does exactly the same thing – it may just take a lot longer to see results.” The same can’t be said for the derivatives called pro-retinols (a.k.a. retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate, and retinyl linoleate), which are the most gentle and weaker, too. Retin-A Cream is one of the strongest retinoic acid component cream available. Other OTC analogs like ROC Night cream with Retinol are weak and not contain pure all-trans-retinoic acids but only weaker formulas for general purposes.
