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. 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 The Body Shop as of 7/21/2019. 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 The Body Shop 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.

Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing

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.

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.

Hemp Foot Protector: Hemp Oil, Retinoid
Hemp Hand Protector (at ULTA): Hemp Oil, Retinoid
Hemp Heavy-Duty Body Moisture Protector: Hemp Oil
Vitamin E Intense Moisturizer: Retinoid

        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!

      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!

    Until a few days ago I didn’t even know that some skin products are not safe during the pregnancy (so I used products with salicylic acid until almost 7 weeks pregnant 😭) and since then I’ve been stressing so much about what I can and cannot put in my face.. Thank you so much for this! ❤️

      No, the Salix Alba is the willow to avoid, it’s considered a salicylate. Ok for nursing but not pregnancy.

    Hi! I noticed that the TTea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash is listed not safe for pregnancy because it contains Avobenzone.

    However, I recently browse through their ingredients and I find these:

    Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Polysorbate 20, Alcohol Denat., Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Chloride, Panthenol, Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil/Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Sodium Benzoate, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil, Citric Acid, Allantoin, Menthol, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Leptospermum Petersonii Oil, Tocopherol, Sodium Hydroxide, CI 19140/Yellow 5, Caramel, CI 42090/Blue 1.

    I don’t know if they are changing some of their ingredients, but is it safe for pregnancy?

      Here’s my info on hemp:
      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.

      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.

      Body spray is basically perfume and a hair mask is a conditioner. I don’t review either product category. Perfumes should just be sprayed on your clothes instead, and your hair can’t absorb anything so no need to worry.

      I have currently reviewed all products in this brand that I can. I require a full ingredient list to review your product, more info here:
      why I need an ingredient list to comment on product safety

      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.
