Pregnancy Safe Skincare and Makeup Products

Pregnancy Safe Skin Care Products

If you are pregnant or trying to conceive, have you thought about your beauty products? Not all skincare and makeup is safe to use for pregnancy. And truly, who wants to spend hours researching which ingredients you should avoid in your skincare if you are pregnant? Is it safe to use your favorite retinol serum or what about benzoyl peroxide to treat your hormone related blemishes?

When I was pregnant with my first child, I had a major anxiety moment over my beauty products. I was a doctor and reading all of the ingredient lists and learning which ones I needed to avoid was very intimidating! I wrote a few posts about the process, readers started asking questions, and over the years pregnancy safe beauty products grew into more and more posts on 15 Minute Beauty. I’ve tried to take the entire process and make it much easier for my readers.

Where to Start

First, I recommend starting with my Pregnancy Skincare eBook. Yes, you need to subscribe to my newsletter to get it, but it is otherwise free! I promise, I don’t email often, and when I do it is with helpful pregnancy beauty updates. The eBook describes my approach to pregnancy skincare, why I think you need a “core” of products that you use throughout your pregnancy.

Please also check out the “hub” of the pregnancy beauty safety posts, my Pregnancy Skincare Guide. This is where you will find links to most of the posts. If you are going to bookmark a page, that’s the one to bookmark!

Other available lists of pregnancy safe products and information to check out:
Pregnancy safe foundations, concealers, mists and makeup settings sprays, foundation primers
Face sunscreen, body sunscreen
Lotions with SPF
Lash Serums
Makeup to worry about (pro tip: not powders, mascara or some other types)
Perfume during pregnancy
Nail Polish during pregnancy
Sunless Tanners during pregnancy

The Brand Lists

Please read How to Use the Pregnancy and Nursing Safety Brand Lists, and here is How to Ask About Product Safety.  If your brand is listed, you need to ask on that brand page.  I will NOT answer questions about these brands on this page.

        Hello, first of all thank you very much for your website. I am now currently pregnant and quite confused when it comes to skin care. Exfoliating… even pha acids are not safe? Is there any safe form of peeling? I’m now left with a cleanser and mosturizing cream for which I am not sure as well. Could you please review these ingredients, this is atopalm mle creams: WATER/AQUA, GLYCERIN, PROPANEDIOL, MYRISTOYL/PALMITOYL OXOSTEARAMIDE/ARACHAMIDE MEA, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, CETEARYL ETHYLHEXANOATE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, POLYGLYCERYL-10 DISTEARATE, GLYCERYL STEARATE, HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL, OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, CAMELLIA SINENSIS SEED OIL, SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL, VITIS VINIFERA (GRAPE) SEED OIL, CARTHAMUS TINCTORIUS (SAFFLOWER) SEED OIL, SUNFLOWER OIL DECYL ESTERS, PORTULACA OLERACEA EXTRACT, VISCUM ALBUM (MISTLETOE) FRUIT EXTRACT, SORBITAN STEARATE, BETA-GLUCAN, TOCOPHEROL, PHYTOSTEROLS, CARBOMER, ALLANTOIN, STEARIC ACID, ARGININE, SODIUM PHYTATE, SODIUM HYALURONATE, ANTHEMIS NOBILIS FLOWER OIL, SALVIA OFFICINALIS (SAGE) OIL, SANTALUM ALBUM (SANDALWOOD) OIL, 1,2-HEXANEDIOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL

        • 3.1.21
          Christine said:

          There’s basically no form of peeling, PHA isn’t safe either as it penetrates more deeply. I recommend either just straight lactic acid (safe because it’s already found in your body) or or trying something physical. Clarisonic brushes used to be good for that, but they just went out of business.

          This product is ok for pregnancy and nursing.

        Hi Doctor Christine,

        Thank you so much for reviewing so many products. I now know where to look before purchasing a beauty product brand. It seems to me that most brands inevitably are adding preservatives in their products. What is your thought on making a DIY skincare oil? I researched online that both rosehip oil and marula oil can offer anti-ageing effect. https://sowourplanet.com/marula-oil-vs-rosehip-oil/

        Which carrier oil would you recommend me adding to these 2 oils for DIY purpose? I am looking for an oil solution that is anti-ageing, yet not over clogging my pores.

        Thank you for your tips in advance.
        Rosy

          I’m willing to review carrier oils for you if you send in ingredient lists, but I do not have time to go out and learn about carrier oils for you and then tell you which one to use. I’m sorry, but I have a family, I work “full time” as a physician (which is more than full time by the way) and I am virtual schooling my girls. I do not have time to review them for you.

    Hi 🙂

    I was wondering if you could check the ingredients of this FaceTheory serum?

    Aqua, propanediol (emollient derived from corn), niacinamide (vitamin B3), sodium lactate (natural moisturising factor), salicylic acid (BHA), sodium levulinate (preservative from sugar cane), sodium anisate (preservative from star anise), azelaic acid (dicarboxylic acid derived from wheat), aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, sodium hyaluronate (salt of vegan hyaluronic acid).

    Also, I’ve read that phenoxyethanol isn’t ok, I have a hyaluronic acid serum with 1.hyaluronic acid and 2. Phenoxyethanol as the only ingredients

    Many thanks in advance I appreciate your time

    Hi again Dr. C!

    I know you mentioned in the hair page that all hair products are okay but thought i’d ask about hair color! It is a confusing topic, and even if my ob-gyn allows for hair color after 12 weeks, i am concerned about general product ingredients particularly since hair color has to sit on my hair for 30mins to 1 hour (if Henna) and it will inevitably touch my scalp.

    Assume these will sit on scalp for an hour (so treat it like skincare), any thoughts on safety of the following, please?

    1. Naturtint Permanent Hair Color (~35 mins application)
    Peg-2 Oleamine. Water (Aqua). Peg-4 Rapeseedamide. Alcohol Denat (Alcohol). Propylene Glycol. Ethanolamine. Oleic Acid. Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein. Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil.

    Do you have any opinions on coloring ones hair while pregnant/nursing? I suffer from premature greying and i’m pretty much a head of 60-75% grey… i am not sure i can live without coloring my hair but I can take any opinion for safety!

      Not everyone says it, but I’m so glad this has been helpful! I get a small % from each affiliate sale, so buying through my links (which take you directly to the product I reviewed) is good. 🙂

      #1 looks fine for pregnancy and nursing
      #2 I’m not certain if the Rhododendron Ferrugineum Leaf Cell Culture Extract is a stem cell ingredient. Sometimes stem cells are listed this way, but not always. I would check into what the brand is claiming about stem cells in the product. My concerns are in this post: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy. Quite honestly, I’m probably dramatically overthinking this whole thing. The rest of the ingredients are ok for pregnancy and nursing, so it’s up to you.

      If you comment on a brand’s page about another brand then you’ll probably get deleted. I want each brand page to be only about that brand, and it’s stated as such on each page. The comments on this page move quickly, so you likely didn’t go back enough. Sometimes things get caught by the spam filter too, but as that can have thousands of spam comments a day and I don’t go through them.

      I have comments from you here, here, here and here.

      Both of these possibly have stem cells, with all of the culture extracts. Sometimes stem cells are listed this way, but not always. I would check into what the brand is claiming about stem cells in the product. My concerns are in this post: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy.

    Hi there-
    I know you’ve said not to worry about too many hair products, but wanted to check in as there’s a curl creme I use all over my hair daily and I just noticed it has Benzyl Salicylate in it. I’ve used this every day for a long time, but am super early in pregnancy (like 5 weeks). Do you think I should stop using it?

    Full ingredients:
    Water (Aqua/Eau), Polyquaternium-37, Cyclopentasiloxane, VP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, Polyquaternium-11, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate-60, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, PPG-1 Trideceth-6, Disodium EDTA, Alcohol Denat., VP/Dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate Copolymer, Panthenol, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Butylene Glycol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Extract, Chitosan, Bacopa Monniera Extract, Glycerin, PEG-4 Dilaurate, PEG-4 Laurate, Sorbitan Oleate, Benzalkonium Chloride, PEG-4, Citric Acid, Tocopherol, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Limonene, Linalool.

    Thanks again for the advice!

      It depends on whether you’re applying at your scalp, most people don’t apply curl cream to the scalp. Discussion here: Hair products to worry about

      • 2.26.21
        Annie Shapiro said:

        I definitely apply thru the layers of my (very thick) hair, so it doesn’t just sit on the top layer, and on the frizzy whisps right at my hairline. But I wouldn’t say there’s a build up of it on my scalp. Do you think there’s still some risk there?

        Did some research and this looks like this could be a substitute that doesn’t have any of the bad ingredients in it:
        Water (Aqua, Eau), Cetearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Behentrimonium Chloride, PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate, Ethyl Macadamiate, Laureth-4, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Protein, Panthenol, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Achillea Millefolium, Lauryldimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Lauryldimonium Hydroxypropyl Wheat Starch, Propylene Glycol, Ceteareth-20, Disodium EDTA, Aminomethyl Propanol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance (Parfum).

          Christine said:

          It has nothing to do with layers, it just has to do with how close to the root you apply. Your hair is dead proteins that can’t absorb anything.

        Thank you for reviewing Dr Christine.
        Just wondering, are caprylyl glyceryl ether, capryl hydroxamic acid, propanediol all 3 considered natural ?

        • 3.2.21
          Christine said:

          It depends on their source, and we don’t really have a definition of “natural”. Natural is a marketing term, not a medical one.

      This has kojic acid which should be avoided in pregnancy and nursing as well.

      I’ve talked to a lot of other physicians about the tranexamic acid and while it works through the pathway, it’s different enough that it’s accepted as safe by everyone. (I have to admit I do medical literature searches on it every few months to make sure I haven’t missed anything.)

      So sorry to ask for more advice but I was wondering about Estée Lauder stay in place foundation – on your list it says it is safe but your list doesn’t mention that it has spf 10 which it does in the UK. These are the listed ingredients in the UK. Can I ask if these ingredients are ok- that is not a chemical suncreen? Many thanks – really appreciate all your help

      It’s ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to glycolic acid and salicylic acid.
      Phytic acid is technically an AHA, but we don’t consider it to be of concern for pregnancy/nursing.

    Also, I’ve been trying to avoid Phthalates but see that they are often hidden as “Fragrance/Parfum”. Is that something I need to worry about?

    Thank you SO much

      Christine said:

      Phthalates don’t currently have enough evidence for us to recommend avoidance. However if it makes you feel more comfortable to do so, then I would. There’s a huge number of rules about when they can say “fragrance” vs listing something. It’s such a small amount in order to be listed that way that I wouldn’t worry about it.

      Please review this information on hair products, most of these are not meant to be applied to the scalp, such as hair spray and styling gel, and I do not review them (I get asked about hundreds of products sometimes in a single day. I simply do not have time.)
      Hair products to worry about

      I have reviewed the products that you’re likely to be using in a manner that you do need to screen them:
      Ok for pregnancy and nursing:
      1, 3
      Ok for nursing but not pregnancy:
      4: stem cells

        Thank you! Few follow up questions:

        2- Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula- although I don’t apply it to the scalp, there is ETHYLHEXYLMETHOXYCINNAMATE in it. Would it get absorbed in hands when I apply? Or would you recommend me use gloves? Or doesn’t matter?

        4- Honeybee Gardens Herbal Mint Alcohol Free Hair Spray – could you let me know which of this ingredient is stem cell, please?

        5-Andalou Naturals, Lavender Biotin Full Volume spray – is meant to be applied to scalp for volume boost. Is this safe?

        6- Andalou Naturals Healthy Shine Styling Gel – I apply it to the root/scalp area. Is this safe?

        Thanks again!
