Pregnancy Safe Skincare from BeautyCounter

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from BeautyCounter

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 BeautyCounter as of 3/24/2023. 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.

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.

    Hi there.

    Do I have to be concerned about Glucuronolactone? I see Gluconolactone is listed as an ingredient to avoid – they seem different but wanted to confirm.

      I’ve asked a bunch of chemists and physicians that, and they say not to worry about it. They’re close but it doesn’t penetrate as well, so I’m not currently screening it out.

    Hi, I see that the Clean Deo is listed as pregnancy safe. I have been using the “rose” scent, which I just realized contains alcohol, whereas the other scents don’t. I have been using this deodorant for almost all of my pregnancy and I am panicking. Is this safe??

    Zea Mays (Corn) Starch*, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Sodium Bicarbonate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax/Cire de candelilla, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Jojoba Esters, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax/Cire de carnauba, Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire d’abeille, Tocopherol, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Alcohol, Hexyl Acetate, Litsea Cubeba Fruit Oil, Dimethyl Heptenal, Raspberry Ketone, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Schinus Molle Oil, Citric Acid. Citral+, Citronellol+, Limonene+, Geraniol+, Linalool+

      It’s fine. The alcohol isn’t like drinking alcohol, it’s very different, and it also evaporates from the skin. Which is why I screened it as safe.
