Pregnancy Safe Skincare from AmorePacific

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from AmorePacific

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 every skincare product (that I reviewed) from AmorePacific. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria as of 2/12/2021. 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.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

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 AmorePacific 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.

    Hi for the amore pacific moisture bound rejuvinating creme it has caffeine on their ingredient list. Would this still be consider be safe?

      Yes, Caffeine is fine. Many OBs say it is ok as long as consumed in moderation and the amount in skin care is much less than in beverages.

    I want to use the Amore Pacific vintage extract essence. However, since its key ingredient is green tea extract and I am trying to conceive, I was wondering if green tea extract would affect fertility in a bad way.

    thank you !

      It’s safe for pregnancy but I don’t know anything about affecting fertility and ability to conceive. I would talk to your OB about that specifically.

    I’m confused, you’re saying glycolic acid isn’t safe for pregnancy but I’ve read many websites saying it is approved for pregnancy. I’m not sure which of you is right???

    • 12.8.19
      15mins said:

      It’s not universally accepted as safe. If applied topically at least 28% is absorbed and we don’t really have safety data. I’m pretty conservative in my recommendations. If you’re comfortable with glycolic acid it’s easy to tell if that’s the only ingredient I was worried about as I list every “problem” ingredient in my lists, so you could still use those.
