Pregnancy Safe Skincare from The Body Shop

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from The Body Shop

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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from The Body Shop as of 11/28/2022. 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.

        Ok for pregnancy and nursing: #1, #2, #4, #5

        Here’s my info on hemp, though note that #3 has that and a retinoid which I would avoid anyways in pregnancy and nursing
        There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well.
        Note that in theory Hemp and CBD do not have THC in them, it’s breed out of the plant is the official status. However, depending upon how it was processed many CBD oils will test positive for THC. But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.

      I’d avoid this during pregnancy due to the gluconolactone. It’s ok for nursing.

        Stacy said:

        Thank you for reply. I used it 1 time, all over my body and on 2nd time I got a crazy rush all over my body, like a sunburn (I washed it off and calmed it down with Avene Cicalfate) So it`s a no for me 🙁 Sadly, because it has really great moisturising qualities! I do not want to discourage nobody from using this product (only for nursing, as Dr said 🙂 because each skin is different !

        Thank you again and love new newsletter btw!!

    First of all, thanks for what you are doing! This website is so helpful!

    I am a little bit confused about the pregnancy safe hair products. What is your thoughts and rules on shampoo/conditioner?

    I am asking here because I was searching for pregnancy safe shampoo and the Body Shop ginger shampoo is one of the products I used to like. Also brands like Aveda, Lush, etc.

    Or do you have any personal favorites that you would recommend?

    Thank you so much!

    The ingredient list of the body shop ginger:
    Aqua/Water/Eau, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Piroctone Olamine, Panthenol, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Benzoate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Chloride, Dimethicone Propyl PG-Betaine, Mel/Honey/Miel, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Sodium Salicylate, Salix Alba Bark Extract/Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Parfum/Fragrance, Disodium EDTA, Linalool, Limonene, Betula Alba Bark Extract, Sodium Acetate, Zingiber Officinale Root Oil/Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Oil, Citronellol, Citral, Citric Acid, Isopropyl Alcohol, Sodium Hydroxide, Benzyl Alcohol, Eucalyptol.

      Per my discussions with OBs, you don’t need to worry about hair products at all, hair is basically dead protein and can’t absorb anything.

      The only caveat that I usually add is that if you’re one who applies shampoo directly to your scalp and lets it sit there for a few minutes it isn’t that much different from a face wash. So I would check shampoos then. This shampoo has willow bark, a salicylate. And a 2nd salicylate. So, I wouldn’t apply it that way if you want to continue using it. It would be fine during nursing. I hope that helps!

      The other ingredients are all ok. I don’t feel comfortable saying this is safe due to the hemp, so it’s up to you.

      Mascara you don’t need to worry about, so I don’t screen those. Info here: Pregnancy Safe Makeup

      The shampoo and conditioner are both fine for pregnancy and nursing, though note since you shouldn’t be applying the conditioner directly to your scalp (just to your hair) you don’t need to worry about it either as your hair can’t absorb anything itself.

      In the US we think 1 cup of coffee per day with some caffeine is ok while pregnant. Topical use is fine. If you’re concerned I would discuss with your OB.

            Yes, any hair product that you don’t apply to the roots/scalp is fine. This is true for most styling products, masks, conditioners, etc. No need to worry about the ingredients and you can use anything you want. It makes life much easier!

    Hi Christine! I’m wondering about this product, you listed the spray from this line as pregnancy safe but not the scrub. I didn’t see the foot cream listed, so I just wanted to confirm if it’s safe.

    Hi, the drops of youth bouncy eye cream that you say is safe for pregnancy has stem cells in, which you also have products containing that on the not safe list with stem cell written in brackets.. So I’m slightly confused. Is the drops of youth eye bouncy cream safe to use due to its stem cell ingredients? Thanks.

    • 10.20.21
      Christine said:

      Unfortunately, the link to the exact product I reviewed (which was in 2019) no longer works, so I think that’s a new version of the eye cream, so it isn’t the one I screened (I just removed it from the list).

      I screen out stem cells, though I’m also dependent on the brand to reveal that they are using stem cells. There isn’t a standard way to have stem cells in ingredients, so it isn’t always obvious. If they don’t call it out in the copy, then I have no way of knowing unfortunately.
