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:
Pregnancy safe foundations, concealers, mists and makeup settings sprays, foundation primers
Face sunscreen, body sunscreen
Lotions with SPF
Lash Serums

The Brand Lists

I have reviewed the ingredient lists of thousands of beauty products. Many of these products are listed below on individual brand lists.

Things to Know

If you want to ask about your own products that are not included here, please follow these guidelines. These guidelines are to streamline the process for me, I get 40-50 comments a day asking about products. Ingredient lists vary by country, some products have very similar names, and often I’ve already screened your product (you just need to look in the right spot).

• I review products available in the United States, as that is where I live, and about 90% of my readers. Please be aware that internationally ingredient lists may vary (check your product against the one I have linked), and there are some products available elsewhere that I don’t even know exist (so please don’t get snippy with me, I didn’t skip your cleanser on purpose).

• The brand lists are almost always more up to date than the round up posts. I am not always able to double check every post on the site, and sometimes products are reformulated. When in doubt defer to the brand list.

      Both Kosas and Westman are on my to do list, I have have to have time to work on it more 🙂

      This looks ok, except I’m not sure if the rubus idaeus leaf cell culture is a stem cell ingredient or not. I’d see what the brand claims about it. My concerns about stem cells are here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      Otherwise it looks ok for pregnancy/nursing. It’s just the stem cell potential issue

    Thanks so much for all of your helpful guidance. I see you have said not to worry about hair products unless they sit on your scalp. I was wondering whether you could comment on absorption through your hands when using products – if a hair product or shampoo for example has several ingredients not recommended, how risky might that be? For example the following product hair cream:
    Virtue 6-in-1
    AQUA (WATER, EAU), CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, DIMETHICONE, GLYCERIN, PHENYL TRIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONOL, ALPHA KERATIN, PANTHENOL, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, POLYACRYLAMIDE, MALTODEXTRIN/VP COPOLYMER, PVP, MALTODEXTRIN, AMMONIUM ACRYLOYLDIMETHYLTAURATE/VP COPOLYMER, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), OLETH-10, C13-14 ISOPARAFFIN, OLETH-20, LAURETH-7, PHENOXYETHANOL, CHLORPHENESIN, BENZOIC ACID, SORBIC ACID, LIMONENE, LINALOOL, BENZYL SALICYLATE, CITRONELLOL, CITRAL, EUGENOL

    There are a few acids, citronellol and salicylate which are all typically unsafe ingredients so any thoughts you have on safety for items such as these would be much appreciated.

    I also have scalp psoriasis and struggle to find anything safe that works and worry that could make some ingredients riskier as they could get absorbed?

    Thanks so much. I’ve had several losses and am worried about all products now, despite having always been careful.

    • 8.24.20
      Christine said:

      First, you should know that your products are very, very unlikely to have been at all involved in your losses, which I’m very sorry to hear about. It’s one of those parent things, we feel guilty about everything related to our kids, whether it was anything we could influence or not. Losses are typically very much out of your control, and you couldn’t have prevented them. But it is very understandable that you’d be super careful.

      Regarding if you need to need to worry about hair products, all the OBs I’ve ever talked to have said that I’m over thinking it too much, and even screening the ones that touch the scalp is too much (though I don’t see how that’s much different than facial products). I’d say if you’re super worried, you could screen all the products, or even just consider moving things over to spray versions. I have a lot of spray serums and creams even that I use on my hair. Then you’re not touching the product at all. The product you posted here I’m only worried about the salicylate, the others are ok.

      What do you typically use on your scalp for your psoriasis? I’ve always had eczema that flares with my allergies, and there is 1 patch on my leg (always! every spring and fall!) and 2 spots behind each ear, but in my scalp. My dad (also a pediatrician) swears I have psoriasis, not eczema. I’m not so sure about that… anyways, I use Head and Shoulders Green Apple, and that is pregnancy safe. I know some people can use typical zinc/tin shampoos with decent results, but not everyone.

      • 8.25.20
        Melissa said:

        Thank you for your response. I’ve used a variety of things for the psoriasis including prescriptions to little results – I find sulfates aggregate it which is why I have tried H&S. I also have highlighted hair so try to avoid sulfates and also thought they were recommended to avoid in pregnancy. It is all a minefield!

        • 8.25.20
          Christine said:

          Sulfates are ok for pregnancy, it’s salicylates you need to avoid. I only apply the H&S directly to affected areas, then let it sit there for a few minutes. I don’t wash everywhere with it, it dries my hair out too much, esp where my highlights are!

          If a brand had a hand sanitizer when I reviewed them, then it is in the brand lists above. Otherwise I have decided very specifically to NOT create a post dedicated to them because the market is evolving so quickly (meaning, something is released, it sells out within a day, and it is never seen again). It would honestly be extremely difficult to make a useful post.

    Hi Doctor,

    I saw that Mighty Patch was highly recommended by the site What To Expect When Expecting, so I decided to give it a shot. It’s good in terms of extracting white heads without popping, but I still don’t know what to do about lingering redness afterwards. I cam across another product in the same Hero line, rescue balm. It sounds like just what I need, but is it safe for pregnancy? Here is the list of ingredients: Water/​Aqua/​Eau, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Propanediol, Butylene Glycol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl PEG/​PPG-10/​1 Dimethicone, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Allantoin, Pantolactone, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Copper Tripeptide-1, Trihydroxystearin, Diisostearoyl Polyglyceryl-3, Polyglyceryl-3 Oleate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Polyglyceryl-4 Diisostearate/​Polyhydroxystearate/​Sebacate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Aluminum Hydroxide, Magnesium Sulfate, Propylene Carbonate, Tetrasodium Iminodisuccinate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891)

    Also, how long should I wait to cover up a recently extracted zit with make-up? And would it be safe to put another Mighty Patch over a recently extracted zit while it’s healing? I also keep reading mixed reviews as to whether tea tree oil is a good skin remedy for pregnant women. What are your thoughts regarding this?

    Whew! That’s a lot! Thank you so much again for taking the time to answer all of our questions.

    Best,

    A. Toner

      I would wait a day or so before putting makeup over something if you’ve popped it. You want the skin to have a chance to heal over a bit. I haven’t seen the mighty patch in person, so I’m not sure if it would be good to use or not. You could definitely try it!
      Tea tree oil is ok for pregnancy, but like everything I would use it in moderation. As a spot treatment is ok, but I wouldn’t wipe it over your entire face.

    Dear Dr. Christine,

    May I ask if this product is both safe for pregnancy and nursing?

    Brand: Bio essence
    Product: Bio-Water Vitamin B5 Gel

    Ingredients:
    Water, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Ceramide 3, Euglena Gracilis Extract, Tocopherol, Biosaccharide Gum-1., Triethanolamine, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin

    Also, am I right to say that all pregnancy-safe products are also safe for nursing, but not vice versa?

    Thank you.

      Christine said:

      This looks fine for pregnancy and nursing.
      Pregnancy is the most restrictive time, anything pregnancy safe is also nursing safe. But you’re right, vice versa isn’t true which is why the next category specifically says not safe for pregnancy.

      This has licorice root, I think has stem cells (Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract is sometimes apple stem cells, sometimes just apple cells), so I would say ok in nursing but not pregnancy

      #1 is fine for pregnancy and nursing.

      The thing with nail polish is all marketing. Your nails themselves are dead proteins, they can’t absorb anything. Nail polish hardens to form a film, with the aim of not moving or being absorbed (and the nails can’t absorb anyways)…. The chemicals the companies discuss are yes, capable of causing birth defects, but the way you use nail polish means you can’t absorb it (I’m assuming you’re applying it and not drinking it) 🙂 So, use any polish you want. My only warning would be the same whether you are pregnant, nursing or simply breathing: apply in a well ventilated place.
