Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Augustinus Bader

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Augustinus Bader

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 products from Augustinus Bader as of 2/18/2021. 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.

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 Augustinus Bader 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 Doctor!

    You’ve included Augustinus Bader The Body Cream in the category of pregnancy-safe products, but their site cautions against it due to the presence of “verbena flower/leaf extract.” I’m certain you have already reviewed the ingredients and found them to meet your standards, I only ask about this particular ingredient because I happen to have a tub of this stuff in my cabinet and I’d love to be able to continue using it! Thank you so much for your time and all the new brands on your list.

    Hello,

    I see you put The Cream into the category “Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing”. In their website, though, it says “The Rich Cream and The Cream are classified as safe to use during pregnancy.
    Please note that The Cream does contain Retinyl Palmitate, this ingredient is included at a level which is classed as safe for pregnant women, however it is up to you to decide if you would like to use The Cream when pregnant, post-pregnancy and/or while breastfeeding, as it is an ingredient that some women prefer to avoid during this time.
    We would recommend consulting with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.”

    I was just told by my OB today to avoid it, but I have been using it before I was pregnant till now (I’m 15 weeks and 6 days). Should I be worried? Honestly I just had a panic moment.

    Thank you!

      First, you should know that brands and physicians don’t always agree. I have info on these situations in this post:
      pregnancy beauty FAQ. It is not uncommon for brands to claim something is safe when the mainstream medical community recommends avoidance, which is the case here. There is also info in there on if you’ve been using a product you shouldn’t be using.

      Retinoids are the biggest ingredient that we have evidence supporting their danger during pregnancy. They are directly tied to birth defects. Due to this, the medical community recommends their avoidance during pregnancy. We don’t have “cut offs” at which we know something is safe. There is no evidence to support whatever cut off they are using, and no cut offs are accepted by physicians. I can’t do a study to say 1% retinoid is safe but 2% isn’t, the study is unethical to perform. Along those same thoughts, would a higher percent be ok if you applied to only half of your face? What about if it is your body? Which trimester, but then what if you have your dates wrong? What if you have an eczema flare up and your skin is absorbing ingredients more easily? It kind of goes on and on.

      Because of those reasons, if there’s enough reason to think an ingredient is unsafe, we recommend complete avoidance. There’s not really a gradient of this, it’s an all or nothing thing.

    Hi there, I’m a little confused about the Augustinus Bader Rich Cream. The ingredients are as follows: Aqua (Water), Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Pentylene Glycol, Squalane, Octyldodecanol, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Tribehenin, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Sorbitan Oleate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Sorbitol, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tfc-8, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Magnesium Sulfate, Panthenol, Butylene Glycol, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Lactic Acid, Lanolin Alcohol, Zinc Pca, Dextran, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-8, Citric Acid.
    However, I was trying to figure out what the Tfc-8 is all about. I read this article that said, “Highly unsatisfied with this conclusion however: we did more digging. We found several patents granted to the Bader brand and in these extremely complex documents (despite our legal backgrounds!), we’ve found what appears to be a definition for Trigger Factor Complex.

    From the patent itself: “Trigger Factor Complex consists of water, ethanol, glycerol, vitamin E acetate, hydrogenated lecithin, cholesterol, L-arginine, L-phenylalanine, L-lysine, L-alanine-glutamine, L-tryptophane, L-tyrosine, L-valine, L-Prolin, L-taurine, ceramide NG, ceramide NP, oleic acid, palmitic acid, sodium ascorbate, phenoxyethanol, mustard seed oil, EDTA, oligopeptide.” https://dupetalk.skinskoolbeauty.com/blog/whats-the-secret-behind-the-augustinus-bader-luxury-skincare-brand
    Are these ingredients in the Tfc-8 okay? Does this have a “growth factor” in it?

    Hello! Thank you so much for all your answers!!! I appreciate it a lot!!
    I wanted to ask you about the oil. I know that it is in a safe category for pregnancy. I wanted to ask You, what is this TFC 8? I did not see it in ingredients and I understood that it is some technology of doing the product? Is it safe? As they explain because of it your body recognize the product better and the results are better with a time, something like that.

      Christine said:

      It’s their own made up name for something in their products, I honestly couldn’t figure it out. I think it’s just one of the extracts. Per FDA rules to sell in the US they have to be clear and exact about what is in the products, and it can’t be some name they made up themselves, it needs to be the chemical name or something similar. When reading through the actual full ingredients they provide that information, so it’s easy to see when their products aren’t safe.

    Have you seen the new supplement from Augustinus Bader “The Skin”? Would it be suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding moms??

      I don’t comment on supplements, those need to be discussed with your own physician.

          I’m not certain if the Leontopodium Alpinum Callus Culture Extract is a stem cell ingredient (and knowing them it is). Sometimes stem cells are listed this way, but not always. I would check into what the brand is claiming about stem cells in the product. My concerns are in this post: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy. It’s otherwise pregnancy safe, so it’s up to you to decide about your comfort level with stem cells.

      Both are Safe for pregnancy and nursing.
      In a comment here I had commented about potential stem cells in the serum, reviewing the Augustinus Bader website I don’t think there are stem cells in it.
