Pregnancy Safe Products from AprilSkin

Pregnancy Safe Products from AprilSkin

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 AprilSkin as of 8/14/2022. 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.

    This series is incredibly helpful, thank you! It looks like you have the Carrotene Clarifying Vita pads listed under both “ Pregnancy and Nursing Safe” and “not safe for pregnancy, ok for nursing”.

    Can you confirm which is correct? Looks like it should just be in the “not safe for pregnancy, ok for nursing” because of the gluconolactone? Thank you!

      Well, that was definitely a mistake! Thanks for catching it, it’s meant to be under the not safe for pregnancy but ok for nursing category only.
