Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Acure

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Acure

Pregnancy safe skincare can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Acure as of 10/1/2022. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Don’t See Your Product? Read This Before You Ask About It…

Please read the Pregnancy Beauty Guide intro first, where you will learn which products you actually need to worry about (spoiler alert, you don’t need to worry about all makeup or hair products). I will not review products that fall into the “don’t worry about it” categories. If you want to ask about a specific product, I require that you follow these guidelines for asking about pregnancy/nursing safety. You can also learn more about how to use these pregnancy safety lists. I will delete questions that don’t follow the guidelines or are rude.

      This has glucono delta lactone (aka- gluconolactone, a polyhydroxy acid), so I would avoid in pregnancy but it’s ok for nursing.

      • 1.3.21
        dani said:

        I would love to know more information on the Glyconolactone and it’s safety during pregnancy. I was told the following : it is naturally occurring and used in some food processing such as pickling. It is also added to some skin care products. Although its use for skin care has not been studied specifically in pregnancy, it is unlikely that significant amounts would pass through your skin and enter your bloodstream where they could reach the baby.
        So what is it about that ingredient that you’ve found unsafe?

        • 1.3.21
          Christine said:

          It is naturally occuring, but it’s a Polyhydroxy acid, which is very similar to AHA and BHA, except that it penetrates more deeply and is actually more likely to be absorbed into your bloodstream. More here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      This has glycolic acid in it as well as hemp. Glycolic I avoid during pregnancy but it’s ok for nursing. Hemp is kind of up to you, here’s my little blurb on it:
      There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well.
      Note that in theory Hemp and CBD do not have THC in them, it’s breed out of the plant is the official status. However, depending upon how it was processed many CBD oils will test positive for THC. But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.

    Hello, I was wondering which face exfoliator would you recommend during pregnancy?
    Thank you!

    • 3.3.20
      15mins said:

      Most of my favorites are with AHAs and that needs to be avoided. Most face scrubs are actually too harsh for the face. I recommend pregnancy as an amazing time to splurge on a Clarisonic, as that provides gentle physical exfoliation and you can use it with whatever face wash you want 🙂

      You can find blogs out there that claim everything under the sun should be avoided in pregnancy/nursing, I haven’t heard Blue Tansy on that list before but I’ve heard just about everything else. It isn’t an ingredient the mainstream medical community thinks should be avoided. I’m a pediatrician, but my list is conservative.

    I read that ferulic acid is not usually considered safe for pregnant women. I am just wondering if you knew differently since you are saying the Radically Rejuvenating SPF Day Cream is ok. In fact, I think I purchased the item because it showed up on your page for one of the best daily moisturizers while pregnant. Then I googled ferulic acid tonight as it’s prominently displayed as one of the top ingredients which led to this question. Thanks!

    Hello! Thank you for all of your work and help, I found this very helpful.

    I see that you listed it as safe, but I was curious about the Acure dry shampoos during pregnancy since they list Rosemary oil as an ingredient. It shouldn’t be absorbing into the scalp too much since it’s job is to absorb your natural oils. But I also keep reading it should be avoiding completely during pregnancy.
