Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Dermalogica

 

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Dermalogica

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 skincare products from Dermalogica as of 10/22/2021. 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 Dermalogica 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.

I do not screen products that you don’t need to worry about, please don’t ask. Don’t see your favorite hair spray or brow gel? Read the above sections on what you need to actually worry about. I will not screen those products, you don’t need to be concerned about them and I already screen hundreds of products a day, so I’m overwhelmed as it is. Please be respectful of this request.

    Hello,

    I keep reading not to use essential oils on the skin. I noticed that you approved the barrier defense booster as being ok. Are the oils in the product true essential oils?

      A few extracts and oils in products are fine. Even a dab of straight tea tree oil on a blemish is fine too. I wouldn’t mix a ton of them together and spread them on my entire body, but in products it’s ok. I have more in my post on ingredients to avoid in pregnancy.

        Michelle said:

        Hi there! A number of articles online state that Daily Microfoliant is safe to use during pregnancy because the amount of Salicylic Acid is less than 2% and you wash it off (rather than let it soak in). Do you agree with that or you still feel like it’s unsafe because of it having any of that ingredient?

        • 6.10.19
          15mins said:

          Pretty much all over the counter products max at 2% Salicylic Acid. And yes, it gets washed off but there’s usually some residue left behind. I have SA on my list because it was on my OB’s list and many OBs tell me that they tell patients to avoid it, but a couple of years ago ACOG put out a statement that they think SA and Benzoyl Peroxide are both safe to use during pregnancy. They previously didn’t say anything. I have them still on my to avoid list because so many OBs were still concerned, but really I do agree with you that a rinse of product is different than a leave on product. But, we don’t have actual safety data. The studies we would need to do are all unethical to perform. So I err on the side of avoiding, both on the site and also when I was pregnant. It’s up to you!

      #1 isn’t safe due to the active ingredient (that’s licorice root), there’s also a chemical sunscreen (ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate)
      #2 is ok

        Thanks so much! I really like Dermalogica’s super sensitive shield spf 30 sunscreen. You have listed as safe but it also contains Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (although towards the end of ingredients list suggesting small quantity). Would this be safe to use?

However when looking for alternatives I also use simple replenishing rich moisturiser which you list as safe, but it has the same ingredient in you list as why I shouldn’t use active moist.

    Hello!

    I have purchased Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel after using your very helpful website to determine it’s safety during pregnancy.
    After purchasing it and googling it for reviews, I spotted a website for a beauty salon stating that it’s not suitable for pregnant women! I am living in the UK and have cross referenced both the US and UK product ingredients, both are identical.
    Please can you confirm that this product is definitely safe to use? I’m slightly dubious after stumbling upon the other sight. Thank you!

      My review of the ingredients is fine, but as there isn’t a standard set of ingredients to avoid it depends on who you listen to. I’m a physician, not a beauty salon. I have specific training in pregnancy and breast feeding safety of medications. I don’t know what a salon would get in terms of training. I also don’t know what in the product would have worried them.

    Hello, I see that clearing skin wash is not safe for pregnancy, but the salicylic acid is only at .5%. I also saw that its not good because of licorice root. Why is that? Would the biggest concern be if we used the product that didn’t get rinsed off right away like the age bright clearing serum and overnight clearing gel (all within the Active Clearing products)?

    Also, I see that the Active Moist is listed under not safe for pregnancy bc it is a chemical sunscreen, but there is no spf in the product. Is there another one you are referring to there?

      In the US we don’t recognize a gradient of risk when it comes to timing of ingredients during pregnancy or amount. As the studies to determine if an ingredient is even safe or not are unethical to do, the ones that would let us decide if 0.5% Salicylic Acid is ok but 2% isn’t are also ones we can’t perform. There’s also so many variables we would need to control for that we couldn’t do it (this baby will have X genetic disease, does that change things? This mom has eczema and things absorb more easily into her skin, this mom wants to apply SA all over her face instead of just a spot treatment)… so it doesn’t really matter what % the ingredient is in the product, if it is there we recommend avoidance, because we can’t do the studies to know what the actual cutoffs are.
      There’s discussion on that here:
      pregnancy beauty FAQ

      Also, discussion on salicylic acid and licorice root are found here:
      skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      My list of ingredients to avoid is pretty conservative. Salicylic Acid is actually classified now as something that’s ok to use during pregnancy by ACOG, but that wasn’t based on any actual studies/evidence, and I know a lot of other physicians who still recommend avoidance, so I do as well. Licorice root does act through the same mechanism as some of the more “bad” skin lighteners such as hydroquinone/arbutin, but it is weaker in that regard. I added it to my list when some OBs were expressing concern about it as well. But both of those are among my “softest” calls for ingredients to avoid. If you don’t agree with me on them (and they’re the ones that I’d say are the ones to disagree with me on), since I call out those ingredients in my product reviews you can still use those ones. Ultimately it’s up to you and your overall concern/anxiety about topical products during pregnancy. Talk to your own doctor as well!

      Finally, Active Moist has Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, which is Octinoxate, a chemical sunscreen. In order to claim actual SPF value, brands need to put a product through expensive and time consuming sunscreen tests to prove it meets the definition of that number in that formulation. But, adding a sunscreen to a product will improve its photostability and shelf life. So they add sunscreens to non-SPF products a lot for that reason. Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate is the one I see most commonly, it shows up in everything from cleansers to night creams.

    I’m going to esthetician school and I’m pregnant. I am super stoked to find your page and very grateful for it. I will be using this so much now for myself and in the future for my clientele. At school we do use dermalogica products and at work we use, PCA, Jan Marini, Cyme, and obagi. Anyway I saw that rapid reveal peel was listed in the “safe” area and it contains AHA’s just making sure this was in the correct spot or if the amount was low enough to make it safe?

      It’s because when you look at the actual ingredient list the AHAs aren’t listed on their own, they’re contained within extracts and such.

      This product was very recently reformulated. The old ingredients (which show up on DermStore) have Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, but the new ones (Dermalogica and Sephora) don’t have that ingredient. But there’s likely still some old floating around out there.

    The conditioning body wash that is on the OK for pregnancy list contains rosemary oil which is a no go in pregnancy. I have been using this gel in my whole first trimester, now I am scared. Can you clarify why it is safe even though contains essential oils that are prohibited during pregnancy?
    I would really appreciate an answer
    Thanks

    • 4.2.21
      Christine said:

      There’s some discussion in here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      But essential oils are ok to use topically. You’re still able to eat rosemary in pregnancy, which is a much bigger exposure than a bit of topical.
