HG,

Comparing retin-a with renova you'll find that both contains 0,5 mg of the active ingredient tretinoin per one gram cream. Retin-a, however also contains. The cream is a prescription item and I'd recommend discussing its use with your prescribing doctor first. This type of cream is usefull in the treatment of some types of acne as well as for the the topical treatment of hyperpigmentation, roughness and fine wrinkling of photodamaged skin.
