According to this site, retinyl palmitate is not exactly the same as "retinol". http://www.paulaschoice.com/cosmetic-ingredient-dictionary/definition/retinyl-palmitate

Retinyl Palmitate is a form of Retinol. Retinol, retinaldehyde, retinyle palmitate, provitamin A are forms of vitamin A. The palmitate is just a less strong form of it.

I notice it does contain "retinyl palmitate'--so if you have concerns about retinol, I would stay away from it. It also contains all kinds of silicone derivates, at the top of the ingredients list (highest concentration), which is what prob. gives the "baby smooth"effect.

It doesn't contain retinol, but it has a high level of peptides "to boost the production of natural collagen", according to the insert in the box.
I have sensitive skin which is prone to breakouts, but this serum didn't cause any breakouts or redness at all. It seems mild so I'm worried about its effectiveness, but it's only been 2 weeks so only time will tell.
So far, I like the feel of it upon application and the fact that it doesn't irritate my skin.

Retinol is not on list of ingredients.
I asked at Sephora, no it doesn't and as far as I know the only "proven" anti-agers contain retinol. This baby can be used with anything...and it does not...I wish you could see my face and how young I look!
This product contains a number of peptides that are great anti-aging ingredients. I didn't have any issues with this treatment in terns of sensitivity. And, my skin can be on the picky side sometimes. I would suggest that you start with a smaller amount of product if your skin tends to be highly reactive. Hope this helps!
