In brief: None.
While salicylic acid soaps or lotions and Retin-A cream will cause a certain amount of skin peeling, no topical product will cause the same amount of peeling as a chemical peel.
And that is as it should be, because chemical peels should only be done by qualified, experienced people who will monitor carefully to be sure that no harm is done.
