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.

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.

Don’t See Your Brand? 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, are in the wrong spot or are rude.

If your brand is listed, ask your question on that brand’s page.

      Christine said:

      I would avoid in pregnancy and nursing both due to the bakuchiol. The rest of the ingredients are fine, this really boils down to how one approaches the Bakuchiol. When it came out everyone was immediately like… “it works JUST like retinoids, but it’s safe!” But… it really does work just like retinoids. To the point that it works via the same receptors and such, but there’s no evidence about safety. (To be fair, there’s no evidence that it’s harmful, it’s just too new) Given that it works exactly the same way as retinoids, I recommend avoidance.

    Hello,

    Trying to find a good belly oil for preventing stretch marks and I read your other post and saw that you recommended almond oil as something to help with preventing them. I immediately thought of L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil and the Almond Milk Concentrate. I believe you marked these as safe for pregnancy, so wanted to understand your thoughts on these vs the products you already recommended in your stretch mark post (i.e. would it be more or less effective than those based on the ingredients?). I also heard people recommending HATCH belly oil- would that be better or worst than the L’occitane/ the other products you recommended? Really appreciate your insight from an ingredient/ effectiveness point of view 🙂

    Thanks in advance!

          I’m not certain if the Malus Domestica Fruit 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.

    Hi Doctor,

    Thanks for all your help from me trying to conceive until lactation.

    I don’t have products to ask this time. However, could you give me some professional opinions about dyeing hair and perming hair during lactation. I have been breastfeeding for 8months+ now, will keep doing it until my son turns 1year old. Really wanna do something new to my hair like color and perm. But I’m not sure if I could do those during lactation period.

    Thank you in advance! 🌹🙏

      I’m not certain if the olea europaea callus culture lysate 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.

      Otherwise, this is Ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to chemical sunscreen (the stem cell ingredient wouldn’t change the safety category)

      1 is Ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to chemical sunscreens

      #2 and 3 both have an odd list and I think #1 isn’t complete (it’s cut off at the end). It’s definitely not pregnancy safe due to the chemical sunscreens, I’m not fully comfortable saying it’s ok for nursing. #2 is unsafe in pregnancy due to chemical sunscreens, but I think that list is complete and it’s ok for nursing.

    Hi! I am looking for pregnancy safe insect repellents. I found one with the following : witch hazel, distilled water, fractionated coconut oil, castor oil, essential oils of citronella, cedar wood, lemongrass, rosemary, geranium, peppermint, wintergreen.

    Is that pregnancy safe and do you have any other recommendations that contain picaridin?(which is likely more effective than the above, the mosquitos move to bite me) Thanks!

      The one you found is safe for pregnancy. I don’t really review bug repellants in a post because they change so much, even the same label is often a different product depending on the retailer. But if you find one I’ll look at the ingredients for you!

    Hi! I was wondering what is safe to use for burns during nursing? I burnt my face real bad with my very hot curling wand, 400-500 degrees hot. I have a large burn/scar on my face. Normally I would use silver silvadene cream but it says they don’t have enough information on if it’s safe or not. Do you know of any safe to use products while nursing? Thanks SO much in advance!

    • 5.15.22
      Christine said:

      I worked in a burn unit for 10 years. No Silvadene on the face, just bacitracin (which is over the counter now), though you can’t use that near your eyes. Do that 2-3x/day, keep it moist until you’re all fresh skin. Then just good moisturizer (but something like aquaphor) and TONS of sunscreen for the first year.

      Safe for pregnancy and nursing, except that I’m not certain if the Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Cell 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.

    Good morning,
    I have a question regarding mascaras. I know that I shouldn’t worry about them, but can one during pregnancy use mascaras that make claims like the following, as in that they are infused with some sort of treatment? Thank you!

    In just 30 days*, mascara makes the lashes naturally longer, voluminous, thick and resistant.

    Innovative formula enriched with SUPERLASH CPX at 2%, a synergistic combination of two powerful active:

    Biotinyl-GHK vitamin matrikina which stimulates the proliferation of keratinocytes of the eyelash bulb and strengthens it, reducing its loss and favoring the anchoring
    Panthenol-provitamin B5- which helps repair damaged eyelashes by strengthening them.

      They’re usually conditioners, similar to what you’d put on your hair. Still doesn’t matter as your lashes don’t absorb them.
