Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Aesop Skin Care

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Aesop Skin Care

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 Aesop Skin Care as of 4/17/2022. 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.

    Hello. I have been using your website as a guide during my first pregnancy! Thank you! Hoping you can clarify something. Parsley toner contains Benzoic Acid. I read that Salic acid/Benzoic acid are not approved for pregnancy, hoping you can confirm or deny.

      There’s a lot of stuff out there on the internet that says random ingredients aren’t safe, most of which isn’t regarded as something to avoid by the medical community. I spend a lot of time going through all of these products, please know I wouldn’t just ignore a few ingredients you need to avoid for these lists. That would be a waste of my time, though it says something about your opinion of me I guess that you think I would do so…

      This is fine, though you don’t need to worry about conditioner as it should only be applied to the tips of the hair which can’t absorb anything.
