Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Briogeo

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Briogeo

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 Briogeo as of 4/1/2020. 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.

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 Briogeo 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.

Which hair products do you need to worry about?

Technically, none. Most OBs will tell you not to worry about any hair products. Your hair is a dead protein, and it can not absorb anything. It’s amazing how pregnancy brain can take over and we forget that simple fact!

Personally, I screened products that would sit on my scalp for a few minutes (aka- shampoos, scrubs, etc). My thought process was that those products would be similar to a face wash, even if washed off right away it sits there for a bit. So, on this list you’ll find products that sit on your scalp. This is shampoo, scalp treatments and root styling products. Other styling products should just be on the hair shaft, and if you’re worried about sprays being inhaled, I recommend holding your breath while you spray and then step away a few feet.

      A mask is the same as a conditioner, you don’t need to worry about them as your hair can’t absorb them.

    Hi, thanks so much for this blog. It’s been a lifesaver! I’m in my first trimester and have serborrheic dermatitis in my scalp – red, flaky, itchy dry patches that hurt! I’ve had it for years and typically use a prescription topical foam, but it isn’t pregnancy safe.
    Will any of these Briogeo products help or do you have any other suggestions? I am desperate for some relief!
    Thank you 🙏🏻

      I actually highly recommend Head and Shoulders in Green Apple. It is pregnancy and nursing safe and it works for me, I have the same issue! Every fall and spring it flares like crazy for me. I need to use steroid creams if it is really bad. I put it on like a patch treatment, only directly on my scalp and in the spots that need it, leave it there for 2-5 minutes, then wash out then use your regular shampoo/conditioner. H&S tends to dry out my hair if I use it like a regular shampoo, and I really need the more directed treatment like that. I hope that helps!

      This is fine for pregnancy and nursing, but it isn’t really any different than a conditioner if that helps. Should only be applied to your hair, not the roots as it will weigh it down. And your hair can’t absorb anything 🙂

    Hi Doctor, I have been adding a lot (about 5-10 drops) of tea tree essential oil to my jojoba oil and sea buckthorn oil mix, and smearing it all over my face each AM and PM. I have rosacea demodex mites, which is why I’ve been doing this. And I’m 4 months pregnant. Is that ok to continue this way?? I’m not using it on my body.

    Hi there, doc! Pre-pregnancy, I was using Brigeo castor oil on my eyebrows for growth. I see that it is on your pregnancy-safe list. Is that even for applying it the way I do (once or twice a day with a q-tip)? Or do you deem it safe only when it’s applied to the scalp but then rinsed off shortly thereafter? Thanks!

    Hi again, thank you for the information that you have about safe products to use during pregnancy and nursery. It going to sound silly, but if i am not sure, so if the product is safe during pregnancy means that is safe while nursing as well? Also, I would like to know the oil hair from Dae is safe during pregnancy and nursery. The ingredients are the following:
    Prickly Pear: Rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
    -Moringa Leaf: Supports keratin production.

    Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Caprylyl Methicone, C13-15 Alkane, Ethyl Macadamiate, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Seed Oil (Sweet Prickly Pear), Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil Ψ Fragrance, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Tocopherol.

      anything ok for pregnancy is also ok for nursing.
      This oil is fine, but as you don’t apply hair oils to the hair you don’t need to worry about it anyways. Please read the section above about which hair care products you need to worry about.

        I don’t comment on supplements, you’ll need to discuss directly with your doctor. We do strongly recommend continuing to use your prenatal vitamin while nursing, which likely already has most of this.

            Hi Christine, I was just about to buy this but then realized the ingredients on the Briogeo site are different from the Nordstrom site ingredients that I listed above. What is Acyl Coenzyme A Desaturase? Is that a derivative of Vitamin A?

      I think you’re confusing me with another site, I have never called out eucalyptus as an ingredient to avoid. Every product has the specific ingredients that I am concerned about next to it, that has NEVER been eucalyptus.
