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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Briogeo as of 3/11/2022. 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.

    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.

      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 haven’t reviewed it as it really isn’t meant to be used at the scalp.

    Hi! I was wondering why the Briogeo Superfoods Mango and Cherry shampoo and conditioner aren’t on the pregnancy safe list? I see it says chemical sunscreen next to it, but it’s not a sunscreen? I just bought the shampoo and conditioner but want to confirm they are safe before using thank you!!

      I think these are the banana ones that are already in the list above.
      They’re ok for nursing but not pregnancy because both have chemical sunscreen (Sodium Benzotriazolyl Butylphenol Sulfonate)
