Pregnancy Safe Products from Act+Acre

Pregnancy Safe Products from Act+Acre

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 Act+Acre as of 3/27/2024. 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.

FYI, the Act+Acre website lists different names for the products, I went with what it actually says on the product.

    Act + Acre claims the stem cell serum is pregnancy safe. Curious why it’s in the not safe category.

    Hi, I’ve seen some posts related to avoiding rosemary in products. The foundation shampoo and conditioner both have rosemary as key ingredient. Do you have a POV on that and other botanicals in skincare/haircare? Thank you!

      Discussion in here:
      skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      You can still eat rosemary. Which is a MUCH bigger exposure than anything topical. I don’t screen it out and I don’t know any other physicians recommending avoidance.
