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. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Aveda as of 3/28/2020. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, etc.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about Aveda on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.

Which hair products do you need to worry about?

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. Conditioner and treatment masques don’t usually touch your scalp, though I have screened a few masques that people sometimes apply up to their roots. If you apply any of these further from the scalp, they’re all safe (even if I screened them as not safe).

            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.

    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!

          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.

      All of these are Safe for pregnancy and nursing
      Be sure to read the section above about which products to worry about, unless you’re applying them directly to your scalp (which these products really shouldn’t be) then you don’t need to worry about them.

        This has a salicylate to avoid in pregnancy, but as long as you’re just putting it further down your hair you’re right, should be fine!
