Is Retinol from Dairy and Liver the same? If so, how come the more dairy that is consumed, the more Vit A needed?

Just wanted to know is there a difference between retinol from dairy and liver.

Ray peat makes a valid point that dairy increases metabolism therefore burns through vitamin A quicker but isn't the Retinol the same in both of the foods?

My concern is that when i did only do dairy especially milk, i needed more vitamin A to stop acne forming on my body however for the past couple of months i have keratosis pilaris with red and sometimes pussed inflamed spots which you can see from previous posts i have raised.

any thoughts?

Liver is where retinol is made, so I'd wager that that liver itself is largely retinol.

It can simply be beta carotene.

Vitamin A in dairy isn't necessarily retinol.
