Pregnancy Safe Foundation

Pregnancy friendly foundations

Now that my list of pregnancy safe skin care products has grown so large, most of the questions I’ve been getting actually are about pregnancy safe makeup. I’ve shared a list of pregnancy safe foundation primers, today is the much awaited list of pregnancy safe foundations! You might want to check out pregnancy safe concealers as well.

Note that for this list I have only included products that I can find a full list of ingredients. Makeup ingredient lists are very difficult to locate. If you want to ask about a specific product, you need to provide a list of ingredients, I will not comment on safety without a list of ingredients. I will also add a list of products that are not safe here (rather than leaving them off the list like I usually do, then you’ll know if I’ve reviewed a product’s ingredient list.

Read this before commenting to ask about your product

If you would like to ask if something is pregnancy safe please provide the product name, an ingredient list and limit yourself to a 2 products. I have readers asking about 20 products sometimes, and as much as I want to help, I simply don’t have enough hours in the day to check so many products. When you comment, please search the comments for your product first (command F will let you search for the name with most browsers) in the comments, I have already answered safety for hundreds of products.

Don’t forget to check out the other articles in my Pregnancy and Nursing Skin Care Guide! Please only ask about foundations on this post, you can check other product types on these other posts. I have been getting questions here for the products that are already in these posts. I will no longer answer questions about products on the wrong product type post, it spreads the information out and is a waste of everyone’s time.

    Hi, is it safe to put pure glycerin oil cause my skin is really dry?

      I wouldn’t recommend pure glycerin oil, I’d go for a better overall moisturizer instead.

        thank you. does it reach placenta and may affect baby?

          That’s the concern. Your skin functions largely as a barrier but it does absorb some things and there is a concern about them reaching the baby.
