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. 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 skincare from Alpyn Beauty as of 2/18/2020. 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. Unfortunately, currently none of the Alpyn Beauty products are pregnancy safe. Some of the products are ok for nursing.
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.
Pregnancy Safe Products from Alpyn Beauty

• Wild Huckleberry 8-Acid Polishing Peel Mask (at Sephora): Willow Bark, Tartaric Acid, Malic Acid
Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing
Note I’m including products with retinoids here, as those are a bit iffy. It depends on how conservative you want to be while nursing (still absolutely contraindicated while pregnant). Refer to my post on ingredients to avoid while nursing for more discussion. Note Bakuchiol has been described by many brands as a retinoid alternative that acts via the same pathways. As there’s no real data about mechanism or safety, I’m calling it out as a retinoid and then you can decide for yourself what you want to do.
• Calming Sleeping Mask with Melatonin & Wild Dandelion (at Sephora): Bakuchiol, Willow Bark (Salicylate)
• PlantGenius Line-Filling Eye Balm (at Sephora): Bakuchiol, Licorice Root, Stem Cells,
