Pregnancy Safe Products from Biologique Recherche

Biologique Recherche Pregnancy

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 Biologique Recherche as of 7/28/2020. 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.

Biologique Recherche does not release the ingredients of their products. I have looked extensively for ingredient lists from trustworthy sources, but could not located lists for many products. If your product is not available in this list, I could not find a source for the ingredients that I felt was truthworthy. You can ask if the product is safe, but you must provide a list of ingredients.

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, this list is partially finished but I’m publishing it early due to so many requests for it.

    Hi there, thanks so much for all your work. Absolutely love this site & am so happy I came across it.

    TTC for some time now & trying to remove products that could potentially be harmful and hope to be prepared when I am pregnant.

    Is Lotion P50 PIGM 400 safe? According to their website, they claim it is, although I see Salicylic Acid so I suspect your advice will be no..
