Does Oil of Olay Regenerist line have Retinol?

I just read through someone's post about retinol and am now worried about the line I use DAILY. Does Oil of Olay Regenerist line have retinol? I tried to look it up online and I can't find an ingredient list on Olay.com. (I'm at work so I can't check the bottles). I use the Night Recovery Cream and the Regenerating Serum.

  • There are few ingredients in those products that are considered "Class C" ingredients.  Depending on how conservative your OB is, they may or may not tell you to stay away it.  From my understanding if it's rated "Class C" there has usually been some kind of fetal development problem when it has been consumed through oral contraceptives.  Of course, no one tests the topical versious on pregnant women, so the effects are unknown.  Some OB's will say it's totally okay, just don't eat it.  My OB is more conservative and advised me to stay away from those products.  Most wrinkle/night cream type products will contain those kinds of ingredients.

    This stuff has really stressed me out, and I opted to go with Belli brand products made for pregnant women.

    https://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ is a great website that will tell you the developmental/reproductive toxicity of any product.  Talk to your OB, and don't worry!  I have read so many different opinions on these kinds of products, and think it all boils down to people just not knowing...

    Here is a link to the ratings the products you mentioned:

  • They are called "Category C" drugs when they have shown an adverse effect on the fetus of an animal.
