Today I'm sharing pregnancy friendly skin care lines over on Babble. To create that list of 8 maternity oriented skin care lines that are safe, I went through the ingredients in a ton of skin care lines to find the ones that fit my criteria for pregnancy safe skincare. Yes, some lines got left off. On purpose even.
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. 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!
