Retinol is the non prescription form of topical Vitamin A. Both products are used to treat the skin.
The first use of Retin-A was for acne. Researchers saw that in the process of clearing up the acne blemishes the quality, texture and tone of the skin was improved. They also noticed an improvement in fine lines. For many years Retin-A was used an an anti wrinkle treatment and this was considered off label use since it was only approved for acne. Then came Renova, which became the anti aging product.
It combined Retin-A with a moisturizing base to make it more user friendly for mature, drier skins. The success of these products brought the use of Retinol into the mix. Since it is not a prescription product but rather a cosmeceutical, many creams with retinol have appeared on the market.

The bottom line is that Retinol is usually considered much less potent than Retin-A or Renova. There are, however, some very good quality Retinol products that can have successful results.
