Pregnancy Safe Products from Arcona Skincare

Pregnancy Safe Products from Arcona Skincare
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 Arcona Skincare as of 6/16/2020. 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.

Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, brow products, etc. I do not review these 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 Arcona 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.

      These are the ingredients per the Arcona website: Aqua (Distilled Water), Diatomaceous Earth, Jojoba Esters (Beads), Glycerin*, Caprilic/Capric Triglyceride(Plant Oils), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Behenyl Alcohol, Sucrose Stearate, Vaccinium Macrocarpon(Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Red Raspberry (Rubus idaeus) Extract, Zeolite, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extract, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Xanthan Gum, Alcohol Denat., Volcanic Minerals, Maltodextrin, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance (Natural)

      Salicylic acid is mentioned in their description but NOT included in the actual ingredients, they’re likely referring to it in one of the extracts, which doesn’t count for pregnancy safety.
