Pregnancy Friendly Skin Care Products

Pregnancy skin care is not easy, especially once you throw in the issues caused by hormonal flucuations and the need to avoid certain skincare ingredients during pregnancy. I’ve looked at a ton of skin care product ingredients list to find these pregnancy friendly skin care products!

Pregnancy Friendly Skin Care Products

There are also a lot of great products that are pregnancy friendly, but not necessarily from a full pregnancy skin care line. While it would be great to be able to use an entire line of special pregnancy skin care, most of us don’t have that luxury. Rather than special ordering an entire line of organic skin care made in France, we’re in the aisle at our local big box store, reading labels we don’t understand.

There are a lot of really great skin care lines in those big box stores, and many of their products are pregnancy friendly! Read on to see which (exact) products you can pick up and use without worry while you are pregnant. You can also see a list of product suggestions including some products I used while pregnant.

Note that I’ll be adding to this list as time goes on, for the brands that are listed I have gone through the entire line’s products, reading those long and tedious ingredient lists. If I wasn’t sure about a product, it was left off of the list. I’ve noted what date I went through a brand’s product list, note that there are sometimes reformulations that aren’t necessarily announced, so always double check the ingredient list!

I have gone through every product’s ingredients list from the brands listed below. If your favorite product isn’t listed (but the brand is) then the product did not meet my pregnancy safe skin care criteria.

    Been waiting for your post! Thank you!!! At least we have the body shop and neutrogena here, i have more options to choose from! Fingers crossed I'll find most of them though 🙂

    Possibly just listing ingredients to stay away from would be more effective. No glycolic acid, no retinols, etc. I think giving people information on what and why they shouldn't use certain chemicals would go further than plugging certain brands.

  3. August 26, 2013 / 6:03 pm

    I have a post listing the ingredients to avoid here: http://www.15minutebeauty.com/2010/10/newwhat-to-avoid-while-pregnant.html
    Which is mentioned and linked to in the post above. Unfortunately looking at ingredients isn't easy for everyone so a long list of exact products that are ok has been requested by hundreds of readers. I get 1 or 2 emails a day requesting help with ingredients, I've started with the lines that I'm asked about most frequently, but it took HOURS to go through each brand. This post is here for me to refer readers to, hoping to help readers and save me many emails. I'm sorry that you feel I've done this only to plug certain brands, but that isn't the case. I apologize.

    thank you ever so much for listing all the safest products. I am pregnant and would love to know which brand/products are safe to use during this period, not only the ingredients.
    great post, thanks again..

    Thank you! I have recently found your site and I am very grateful that you take the time to do it. I am certain there are many others that appreciate it as much as I do. I am hoping to see the 'Yes To' line show up at some point, but maybe not…:) I do not want to comment too quickly like one of the folks above asking about links etc (be nice people!), but have I overlooked a link to makeups that are pregnancy safe? Could we or should we look forward to this? With all the recent news about lead in lipstick etc, I worry about that as well since I often feel I need to enhance or hide things if you know what I mean!:) Thanks again!

  6. August 28, 2013 / 12:58 am

    Thanks! I'm pulling up the Yes to line to add now 😀 I haven't thought about a makeup post actually, the lines change so frequently. Do you think just including foundation, concealers would be enough?

    This is a great list! I have been searching online for such a listing the past couple of days after learning the products I am currently using contain unsafe ingredients. It has been much easier to find a list of what to avoid (various chemical names) than what's safe. Thank you!

    I would also love a makeup list and think foundations (especially the newer "hot" BB & CC creams) is a great starting place. :o)

  8. August 29, 2013 / 4:37 pm

    Hi, thanks for all the info and time you took getting it. I'm in TX and there is a brand here that a lot of spas use called Rhonda Allison. I had a facial 2 weeks ago and she gave me a cleanser and moisturizing cream that was from Rhonda's safe while pregnant list of products. For some reason I didn't look at the list of ingredients at the time (didn't think I needed to since it was on the safe list) but yesterday I noticed retinol as one of the ingredients in the cream. I called their headquarters here in TX and talked with an esthetician and she said that the cream is for sensitive skin and has very little retinol in it and reassured me it was ok. She said it is not prescription strength and that it is derived from Vitamin A. What do you think? Would you mind looking at their website? http://www.rhondaallison.com/Post_Care_Support_and_Moisturizers.html
    I was thinking about getting the ultra hydration cream instead and saving the other cream (moisture au lait) for after pregnancy. Thanks 🙂 Kelly

  9. August 29, 2013 / 5:57 pm

    Retinoids are the biggest item on the no-no list, and there isn't a "safe" amount. Pretty much all physicians say to avoid it completely while pregnant, though it is safe while nursing! I'd save it for after delivery. The Ultra Hydration Cream looks safe (and very hydrating) to me!

  10. August 29, 2013 / 6:08 pm

    Ok, thanks so much Christine! Glad I found your blog!

    This is a great list. I am looking for a new cleanser / toner / moisturizer and I was happy to come across this list of things to avoid & suggestions on what to try.

    I thought I found my next cleaners (Mario Badescu's Enzyme Cleansing Gel), but then when reading the full product description, I saw that while the ingredient list does NOT say Hydrozy Acids, under "benefits," the hydroxy acids are listed–which seems very strange to me!

    benefits:
    "Our Best Selling Daily Cleanser. This non-foaming, gel cleanser thoroughly removes the day’s make-up, dirt and oil without drying the skin. Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts are exfoliating Alpha Hydroxy Acids that help prevent dulling build-up that can cause blackheads and pimples."

    Is it ok afterall, or should I avoid? (And if anyone can share a good pregnancy-safe cleanser for someone with combo skin & acne problems, I would greatly appreciate the tip!)

    Thanks,
    E

  12. August 31, 2013 / 3:35 pm

    I made the executive decision to leave on products with extracts, which yes, will contain alpha hydroxy acids but at a much lower level than if they were on the lists themselves. You'd get a lot more by just eating that Papaya on its own than my using the small amount in the cleanser, if that makes sense! We're still considering extracts like that (except Willow due to the higher amount of Salicyclic Acid) to be safe

    In terms of acne treatment, is there anything we know about using Zineryt solution in pregnancy?

    Thank you again!
    I currently use Clinique even better makeup SPF 15. It has a long list of ingredients, but is it safe?
    My pregnancy made me realise how dependent we are on chemicals in our daily care: shampoos and conditioners, toothpastes, facial creams, make up, nail polish, etc.
    Are there any shampoo & conditioner and make up products anyone could recommend for when pregnant, please>

  19. September 8, 2013 / 5:31 pm

    Parabens are not currently on the no list for physicians. The evidence we have doesn't support adding them at all, though you can easily avoid them if you want to. If you're avoiding them in products, you should also avoid any foods that have them (you'll get a LOT more exposure via food than lotions) and note that they're naturally found in products like blueberries as well.

    What's your opinion on Eminence products, specifically their Bright Skin Care line? Thanks!

  23. September 12, 2013 / 2:31 pm

    Anon- I've gone over EVERY product in these lines, so if it isn't on the list it isn't safe. A bunch of the Body Shop's Tea Tree items weren't safe, so there must have been something in it. Only the Body Shop items listed above were fine!

    Meagan- Unfortunately Eminence doesn't list the ingredients on their website, so I can't comment. In general all skin brightners except licorice root are not safe.

    Do you know if Estee Lauder's Perfectionist CP+R or Advanced Night Repair for face or eye ok to use?

    What about the Skinceuticals Phloretin CF that have the following ingredients ok to use? Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat., Ascorbic acid, butylene glycol, triethyl citrate, phloretin, feurlic acid

      Not that I know of, I’ve never seen that ingredient mentioned on any list of things to avoid. As well, all the derms I’ve talked to say to not worry about hair products and it is mostly rinsed off immediately and the scalp doesn’t really absorb it.

    Hi,

    I recently bought Deep Cleansing Mask and Refining Facial Polisher from Omorovicza. I saw those two in your safe list. Is there any limitation on using the products? I contacted them directly but they keep repeating to ask my doctor whether their ingredients are safe for pregnancy. Now i am doubting if their products are safe. What do you think?

    • 15mins
      January 6, 2018 / 10:05 am

      I think they’re safe based upon my criteria, but the ultimate guide is always your doctor. Many brands won’t comment either way.

    Hi! I’m so grateful I found your blog because I’m a big beauty Nut but had to forgo a lot of my usual products during pregnancy. Now that i’m nursing, I was surprised that my doctor told me to only stick to natural products. Your list is so helpful because kiehls is one of my favorite brands! I can’t seem to see other brands though aside from the updated ones from December 2017. Is there another link? Thanks!

        I would love to know if the La mer Soft Cream is okay for pregnancy/nursing stages. As well as the Bioderma Micellar water. Here are the ingredients of the latter:

        AQUA/WATER/EAU, PEG-6 CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC GLYCERIDES, FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES, MANNITOL, XYLITOL, RHAMNOSE, CUCUMIS SATIVUS (CUCUMBER) FRUIT EXTRACT, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, CETRIMONIUM BROMIDE, DISODIUM EDTA. [BI 446]

        Is it correct that I can only see from Clarins to Ren brands on this page? 🙂 Cause I read through the comments and some mentioned Body Shop, Neutrogena, etc.

        Thank you!!

          The Bioderma looks fine. I can’t find the La Mer ingredients anywhere, so I am unable to comment on that.
          I’ve recently revamped this post, I hadn’t looked at many ingredient lists in about 4 years, so I erased those lists (so many had reformulated!) and I’m slowly going through more brands on the ULTA and Sephora sites. It takes hours, sooo… yes, it’s going to take a long time! If there’s a particular brand you want to know about let me know, but I previously had about 20 or 30 brands in the post.

      I would avoid the Philosophy product due to the Glycolic Acid. The Shiseido looks ok to me!

    What do you think about hair color during nursing? Also, since these products are safe for pregnancy, does it mean these are safe for nursing as well? Thanks!

      Hair color while pregnant and nursing is regarded as safe by the medical community. All the products that are safe for pregnancy are also safe for nursing.

      I do really like a lot of their products! I haven’t included the list here because I haven’t gotten that far yet, but they’re wonderful at correctly labelling products for pregnancy and nursing 🙂
