Pregnancy Safe Products from AlumierMD

Pregnancy Safe Products from AlumierMD

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 AlumierMD as of 8/28/2022. 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.

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.

      That’s fine! I just added it to the list. I went through all of the products (I thought) but they may not have had that listed because you need to buy at a doctor’s office and can’t online here? Not sure. I’ve added it now though. Thank you!

    Thanks so much for this! Most of the products recommended for me are safe in pregnancy, although I am a bit peeved that 2 facialists have told me clear shield is ok and then seen it has salicylate in it! I need to find a new spf.

      I think estheticians don’t have training in what to avoid. My OB was very clear (and as a pediatrician I agree) that salicylates should be avoided.

        Stephanie Quinn said:

        Yes, I’d definitely rather be as safe as possible, just feel bad I used in my last pregnancy and up to 13 weeks of this one. But I know I try my best to use pregnancy safe products. I’ve seen the comment above and will give the moisture matte a try. Thanks for your work 😊

    Hey, is the acne clarifying cleanser okay to use since it has less than 2% of salicylic acid in there? I read that if it’s less than 2% it’s okay. Please confirm. Thankyou!!

    • 5.6.21
      Christine said:

      No, there’s no evidence to support it, the 2% is because every over the counter has <2% salicylic acid, in the US that's the threshold between over the counter and prescription.
      Discussion here: But what about this % of an ingredient?

    Hello, I just wanted to double check about Hydralight please. It contains LACTIC ACID/GLYCOLIC ACID COPOLYMER
    Is this ok? Fingers crossed as I love it! Thanks

      Christine said:

      It’s not! I don’t think that was there when I last reviewed it, it may have been reformulated 🙁 Moving it’s category now.

    Is Alumier MD – Ever Active C + E + Peptide safe to use during pregnancy? Thanks

      Christine said:

      As mentioned in the post, I need a full ingredient list to review your product as I’ve reviewed all of the ones I have access to. More info here: why I need an ingredient list to comment on product safety. Note, I do not follow links from readers, I need the actual list. Note, I just redid this brand a few days ago, and that product was NOT on their site. Thanks!
