Pregnancy Safe Products from Bio-Oil

Pregnancy Safe Products from Bio-Oil

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 Bio-Oil as of 9/3/2020. 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.

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.

Note I’m including products with retinoids here, as those are a bit iffy. It depends on how conservative you want to be while nursing (still absolutely contraindicated while pregnant). Refer to my post on ingredients to avoid while nursing for more discussion.

• Dry Skin Gel (at Amazon): Retinoid, Gluconolactone
• Skincare Oil (at Amazon, Target, ULTA): Retinoid, Salicylate

    Also, Bio-oil skincare oil package says it’s for use during pregnancy, does it mean we still shouldn’t use them during pregnancy?

      This product is fine for pregnancy and nursing

      I have info on these situations in this post:
      pregnancy beauty FAQ

      Bio-Oil in particular is a blatant example of a brand marketing itself as pregnancy safe when it contains ingredients very well known to not be safe during pregnancy.

    Omg THANK YOU for this post! I get so annoyed any time I see women recommending Bio Oil to each other for stretch mark prevention during pregnancy, not to mention the manufacturer marketing this specifically to pregnant women! Like HELLO IT HAS RETINOL. It drives me up the wall. This post is awesome 😀
