Hello,

1 Answer:

Hello Intanput, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Retinoid is a general term used to describe chemical compounds that are derived from vitamin A or have a vitamin A component in it. Retinoids are classified into generation 1 retinoids, generation 2 retinoids, and generation 3 retinoids. Retinoic acid is one of the first generation retinoids. Basically, retinoic acid is the end product of vitamin A metabolism. All retinol and retinoids will eventually be converted into retinoic acid.

Creams containing retinoic acid are anti-acne and anti-wrinkle creams that can have an immediate effect on the skin (no need to go through the chemical structure change step again).

So much information from me, hopefully it will explain enough
