Pregnancy Safe Products from Aveda

Pregnancy Safe Products from Aveda

Pregnancy safe beauty products 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 Aveda as of 9/24/2022. 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.

            They both have salicylate. Ok for nursing but not pregnancy. Please read above about which hair products you need to actually worry about, because the mask is probably fine since it shouldn’t be applied at the roots anyways.

      The tonic has salicylate, which needs to be avoided in pregnancy. But the tonic is the one you spray all over and the volumizing spray (which is fine) goes at the roots, so I think you’re fine to keep using them.

    I just purchased the Aveda Nutriplenish light moisture and the matching conditioner only to realize that it contains Benzyl salicylate (ingredients below). From what I’ve read on your (extremely helpful!) site, if I’m just using it on my ends, it’s okay, right?

    Hello! I am bit confused about the safety lines for shampoos and condicioner….I believe I read in your blog that we should not worry about the during pregnancy, but now looking at the Avena safe products list I see a few Not Safe shampoos…could you please clarify? I ask because the shampoo and conditioner I am using has Benzyl Salicylate….
    Also the Avena volume tonic that you mention in your last email, is it safe for pregnancy?
    Thanks again!

    • 5.28.20
      15mins said:

      Technically, none. Most OBs will tell you not to worry about any hair products. Your hair is a dead protein, and it can not absorb anything. It’s amazing how pregnancy brain can take over and we forget that simple fact!

      Personally, I screened products that would sit on my scalp for a few minutes (aka- shampoos, scrubs, etc). My thought process was that those products would be similar to a face wash, even if washed off right away it sits there for a bit. So, on this list you’ll find products that sit on your scalp. This is shampoo, scalp treatments and root styling products. Other styling products should just be on the hair shaft, and if you’re worried about sprays being inhaled, I recommend holding your breath while you spray and then step away a few feet.

      The volume tonic only goes on the hair, not the scalp, so I wouldn’t worry about it.

        Please read the section in the post about which hair products you need to worry about. As conditioners shouldn’t be applied to the roots, you don’t need to worry about them.

          This has both licorice root and hemp. I would avoid the licorice root for sure, the hemp is kind of up to you but I have reservations about it for pregnancy and nursing, there’s discussion in here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

    Can you clarify your thoughts on safety of Benzoic Acid, which is an ingredient in the aveda rosemary purifying shampoo? I’ve read that this is what benzoyl peroxide breaks down into and I believe the benzoyl peroxide ingredient is listed as something to potentially avoid on another page in this site.

    • 10.31.20
      Christine said:

      It’s not thought to be closely related enough to benzoyl peroxide that we worry about it. The issue isn’t really the benzoyl peroxide breaking down, it’s the free radicals they create is my understanding from discussions with other physicians.

    Products containing rosemary are NOT safe when pregnant. You’re giving out dangerous advice.

    • 4.25.22
      Christine said:

      That’s interesting you feel that way. Rosemary is one of those ingredients that we (meaning the medical community, I’m a pediatrician) don’t feel need to be avoided in pregnancy. The evidence supporting your statement is in animals, with extremely large amounts of rosemary. It’s not even recommended that you avoid eating rosemary during pregnancy, which is a MUCH larger level of exposure than topical rosemary. There’s no evidence to support avoidance of topical rosemary. Remember that your skin is a barrier and keeps most things out.

      You can pretty much find info out there about avoiding everything possible, much of which isn’t based on much. Rosemary is not considered an ingredient to avoid by the medical community (we don’t recommend avoiding eating it, and that’s a lot more exposure than shampoo). My list of ingredients that I screen out is very conservative and it’s here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
