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.
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 Alpyn 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.

• 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.

• PlantGenius Line-Filling Eye Balm (at Sephora): Bakuchiol, Licorice Root, Stem Cells,
