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: READ THIS FIRST

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

Note, there are product types that you don’t need to worry about and that I will not review.  This includes some makeup, sunless tanners and some hair products.

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, those comments will be deleted. Please read this: How to ask about product safety, I am picky about this for a reason. I need your full ingredient list, I will not follow a link. Please be polite enough to read how to do this, and refrain from sending me rude emails if you can’t follow the directions.

    Hi. I have posted a few times but my comment keeps getting removed and others are being answered still so not sure if I’m posting in the right spot…. The brand SkinScript is not on your list and I was wondering if the ageless skin moisturizer with aloe, Co-q10 and Alpha Lipoic Acid is safe to use during pregnancy and breast feeding as it’s a mew product I just started right before becoming pregnant. I posted the ingredients below:

    Key Ingredients

    Caprylic triglyceride – improves the moisture content of the skin and boosts the efficacy of other active ingredients
    Sodium benzoate – kills bacteria and fungi while promoting the skin’s natural barrier protection
    Aloe barbadensis leaf juice – soothes the skin, calms inflammation, provides moisture, and boosts the natural recovery process
    Sodium hyaluronate – rich moisturizer that binds skin cells to water for lasting hydration
    Ubiquinone – reduces the size and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
    R-alpha-lipoic acid – improves the protective abilities of antioxidants
    Ylang ylang – neutralizes bacteria and reduces stress in the skin
    Bergamot – tones the skin, provides a fresh scent, and kills bacteria
    Ingredients

    Aqua (Water), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Glyceryl Monostearate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Xanthan Gum, Alcohol Denat. (Ethanol), Sodium Hyaluronate, Orange (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis) Essential Oil, Grapefruit (Citrus Grandis) Essential Oil, Ylang Ylang (Cananaga Odorata), Bergamot (Citrus Aurantium Bergamia) Essential Oil, Fructan, Ubiquinone, R-alpha-lipoic Acid

      You’ve posted several times on other brand pages, all of which say very specifically to NOT ask about other brands on those pages. I get emails from readers complaining that they can’t find what they need in the comments when there are too many other brands included, so the directions say to not ask about other brands, if you ask on those pages the comments will be deletec.

    Do you have recommendations for hand soap? Most of the drug store brands seem to have salicylate. The more natural ones seem to be loaded with essential oils. I’m struggling to find something that seems safe!

    Hi Doctor! I’m just wondering what are your thoughts on the brand living libations? They are claimed to be natural brand using mostly essential oils/ plant extracts. I’ve heard people rave about their best skin ever seabuckthorn oil. Is that safe to use on face and body/belly?
    Product ingredients: Seabuckthorn Oil – Hippophae rhamnoides, Jojoba Oil – Simmondsia chinensis, Virgin Coconut Oil – Cocos nucifera, Tamanu Oil – Calophyllum inophyllum, Lavender Oil – Lavandula angustifolia, Vetiver Oil – Chrysopogon zizanioides, Grapefruit Oil – Citrus paradisi, Palmarosa – Cymbopogon martini

      The brand is on my to-do list, but you’re only the 2nd person to ever ask about them I think, so they are pretty low on the list currently. I recommend avoiding a lot of extracts and oils during pregnancy as they tend to cause rashes and sensitivity and pregnancy is a “sensitizing” time, meaning you’re much more likely to react to something (even if you’ve used it for years) and that reaction often persists after pregnancy.

        Description

        Face Reality Hydrabalance Hydrating Gel is an acne-safe gel moisturizer that works well with acne skincare products.

        Why We Love It
        Hydrabalance is our most popular gel moisturizer for a good reason. This water-based hydrating gel soothes and nourishes oily and blemish-prone skin types. Along with antioxidant and antibacterial properties, Hydrabalance helps to reduce oily shine. The light gel formula is perfect for blemish-prone skin.

        Updated airless 1.7oz packaging will start shipping out in late May 2021. With the new packaging, apply 1 pump all over face and neck as directed, avoiding eye area.

        Please note this packaging requires 15-20 pumps before product dispenses when first used.

        1.7 oz

        Who Will Love It
        All skin types

        Recommended Use
        After cleanser, toner, and serums, apply with damp fingers. May be used alone or under other moisturizer during the day. May be used under sunscreen. In the PM, use alone or under Acne Med.

        Studio Tip
        This hydrating gel can be used under Clearderma or your favorite acne-safe moisturizer during the day and, because it is water-based, Hydrabalance can be safely used under Acne Med or other benzoyl peroxide treatments.

      I’m not certain if the Crocus Sativus Cell Culture Extract or Nymphaea Alba Leaf Cell Extract are stem cell ingredients. 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.

      #1 I’m not certain if the Argania Spinosa Sprout Cell Extract ir Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract are a stem cell ingredients. 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. It also has a retinoid. Avoid in pregnancy and in nursing if you’re conservative

      #2 This has a retinoid. Avoid in pregnancy and in nursing if you’re conservative

      #3 Again, not sure if something is a stem cell, and it has a retinoid to avoid.

        Hi looks like for #1 that the only ingredients on bottle and on all the websites is just these few ingredients 🤷🏼‍♀️ Seaweed Extract, Distilled Water, Hyaluronic Acid, Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Red Tea Extract

        Also for the #2 you said not safe in pregnancy because has sunscreens. Does that apply to all sunscreens? I thought the zinc and titanium was safe or is that a no go as well? I have other items with those ingredients so maybe I should not use those either? Thanks!

        • 9.18.21
          Christine said:

          I’m surprised that’s really all that is in #1, typically there are more fillers and things. This looks fine for pregnancy and nursing if that’s it.

          #2 isn’t safe because the 3rd ingredient is Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, which is a chemical sunscreen. Zinc and titanium are mineral sunscreens and are fine.
