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

    I have found your page so useful! I’m using it as my sole guide basically for pregnancy products. I’ve seen many influencers promoting Dime Beauty as a all natural makeup and skincare line. I know you get thousands of requests, but I wanted to suggest that line.

      This has a salicylate, I would avoid in pregnancy but ok for nursing
      For super dry skin my favorite thing to do is add in a few drops of this face oil under my usual face cream at night

    Melissa said:

    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,

      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:

      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.

      #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.

      I found some concerns for all of these products with pregnancy, they’re probably all ok for nursing.

      Zero Pore Pad 2.0: Salicylic Acid, willow bark, salicylate
      Triple Deep Erasing Cream: Salicylate

      Both of these have Disodium Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA)
      Triple Collagen Toner 2.0
      Triple Collagen Serum 2.0
      EDTA is an anticoagulant, and I can’t imagine what purpose it would really serve in skincare. I don’t feel comfortable saying it’s perfectly safe in pregnancy.

      With the retinoid and salicylate it isn’t safe for pregnancy. Some people avoid retinoids while nursing, though I don’t really know of any studies that support that. I have seen more physicians recommending this though, and if you’re already hesitating I don’t think it’s worth using the product. There’s enough going on in the world currently, you shouldn’t be worried about your skincare!

            For the Luna Moisturizer it contains Diglucosyl Gallic Acid as one of the main ingredients, do you think its safe for nursing? Because I read on your Inkey list there is Diglucosyl Gallic Acid as one of the ingredients that belongs to the product on not safe for pregnancy & nursing category. Thanks again for confirming 🙂

    I couldn’t find any where that had the ingredients typed out.. and even tried to type them out myself with very little success. I have included the links below.. the ingredients are the second image if you click the arrow. I am so sorry to ask this extra step of you, I just dont know what else to do.

    Hi Christine,

    My understanding is that butterfly pea flower/ blue sweet pea flower is known to cause uterine contractions, so pregnant women should avoid consuming it, but I am wondering if it is ok in skincare? Do you have any thoughts on that?

      These weren’t screened as they only touch the hair, not scalp. Please refer to the section on what hair products to worry about.

        Ashley said:

        Thanks for following up about this. I was just curious, why you screen some leave in/hair prep products. I noticed a primer detangler was screened as safe so was just curious. I know these don’t technically touch the scalp, but I guess I was concerned about spraying and it getting on my scalp accidentally.

        • 11.24.20
          Christine said:

          I occasionally do it if people are driving me crazy or it’s a product some people do use on their scalp. But I get asked about so many products each day (and I work full time, have a family and we are virtual schooling right now) that screening 10-15 extra products that people shouldn’t worry about, esp when I have already explained in the post why they shouldn’t be worried about, is a frustrating time suck.

        THANK YOU! I have a follow up question (that you may not be able to answer), but foods with malic acid, are those unsafe as well? Specifically sour candies a lot of times have malic acid in them (gummy worms, etc.).

          You don’t need to worry about those really, though food is a higher level of exposure, they don’t generally dump large amounts of these things in. I’d talk to your OB, they’ll give you a list of things to avoid.

          I think all of these products are fine for pregnancy and nursing.
          The stem extract you have here is the actual stem of the plant that they’ve juiced basically. Stem cells are tricky, brands label them differently, and sometimes they label them like a cell broth basically. If I see one of the suspicious labels, I typically have to say to look and see what the brand is claiming is in there, if it’s stem cells that sounds fancy and they’ll call that out in their copy, they want you to know it is there!

          When it’s added individually as a chemical it’s actually in a much higher concentration, and it’s actually not exactly the same chemical when from the “natural source.” Brands that claim it is in there aren’t actually being entirely accurate in that.

      #1- ok for pregnancy and nursing
      #2- Arbutin, avoid in both pregnancy and nursing

      I would talk to your doctor about the perioral dermatitis. Typically it has a staph infection component and you can’t get rid of it without a topical antibiotic. Over the counter options (like bacitracin or neosporin) don’t work for it.

      Ok for pregnancy and nursing:
      Black Clay Facial Soap
      Aloe&Rose Clay Complexion Soap

        Thank you! It’s something I’ve dealt with on and off and is just exasperated by pregnancy 🙁 My concern is most of the topical antibiotics I researched seem to not have enough data to show if they’re safe for pregnancy, so I was hoping to keep it mostly at bay while pregnant by possibly switching up my skincare routine. But will definitely bring it up at my appt next month, didn’t know it was related to staph. Thank you again for this awesome site and your quick responses!!

      Some of them are ok and some aren’t. This one has hemp in it, here’s my blurb on it. It’s up to you.
      There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well.
      Note that in theory Hemp and CBD do not have THC in them, it’s breed out of the plant is the official status. However, depending upon how it was processed many CBD oils will test positive for THC. But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.

    Hi there! Have you reviewed any products for Static Nails brand? I looked around your site a bit and couldn’t find any but wanted to confirm before sending you ingredients.

      I haven’t reviewed nail products because you don’t need to worry about them. Your nails are very thick, dead protein and can’t absorb anything. Just apply in a well ventilated area.

    Hi, I wanted to know your view on whether it’s safe to wear perfume during pregnancy. I suppose one could spray it on the clothes and hair and avoid contact with skin, but what about inhalation?

    Thank you 🙂

    • 10.17.20
      Christine said:

      You should never be inhaling when spraying yourself with products, for hair or body. That goes for when you are pregnant or not. I recommend spraying while you hold your breath and then step away out of the cloud of product. Most perfumes have salicylates and aren’t pregnancy safe so yes, I recommend spraying on your clothes and hair. Breathing the scent while you’re wearing it should be fine.

    Hi!

    What are your thoughts on using a powder sunscreen instead of liquid while pregnant? For example if a powder foundation has zinc oxide in it.

    Thank you!

    • 10.21.20
      Christine said:

      I’m not a fan of powder sunscreens. It has to do with how the SPF is measured.

      When they test sunscreen SPF values, the sunscreen product has to be applied to a standard application level. This is 2 mg/cm2 of skin area, which for the average adult is about 1 ounce of sunscreen for your entire body, the recommended amount. It’s almost impossible to put enough sunscreen into a powder to get the correct SPF value. With the size of the average face, this would be about 1.2 g of powder per application (most jars are about 18-20g total). The average woman applies 0.085 g of powder, so ~1/14th the amount you need to get the correct SPF. (This is all from my Cosmetic Dermatology by Dr Leslie Baumann textbook.)

      So, powder sunscreens should never be relied upon to actually deliver the stated SPF.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your pregnancy posts, they are really useful. Have you reviewed any of the Tropic Skincare products?

    I use these for skincare, body care and make up as even when not pregnant I want to use more natural products without nasties in them. But I wasn’t sure of their use when pregnant.

    Thank you so much!

          I added numbers to the products so it would be easier to refer to them.

          You don’t need to worry about lecithin or steric acid. Salicylic acid I would avoid in pregnancy. It depends on the actual ingredient chemical name for their bio-retinol (here I think it’s actually beta-carotene which is ok) and the plant derived PHA. (The INCI is the full ingredient list with actual chemical names)

          Ok for pregnancy and nursing:
          3, 5

          Ok for nursing but not pregnancy:
          1, 2- Gluconolactone (this is likely your plant derived PHA)
          4- Gluconolactone, salicylic acid

    Hi Doc,
    In many of these comments i see that the ingredient ‘benzyl salicylate’ is listed and is identified on your blog as a potentially harmful ingredient. You confirm in multiple replies, it is not safe to use during pregnancy.
    The famous product Bio oil, a recommended topical oil to be used directly on your stomach during pregnancy and after pregnancy, contains benzyl salicylate.
    Can you please confirm that Bio oil is potentially harmful to the fetus when used on your stomach during pregnancy.? Thanks.

    • 10.23.20
      Christine said:

      Bio-Oil has it’s own page in the list above and if you look there and/or search the blog you’ll see that I state over and over that Bio-Oil has not only salicylates but also retinoids, so shouldn’t be used in pregnancy for sure and while you’re pregnant if you’re conservative. I know many physicians who go out of their way to counsel their patients to avoid this product, but the brand markets it like this despite the mainstream medical community stating to avoid these ingredients.

      When it’s a leaf/stem extract that typically is just a juice from the leaves and stems. Zostera Marina is ok too. I wonder more about the Rhus Semialata Call Extract (cell extract?) Sometimes stem cells are labelled that way, you have to sometimes look at their marketing materials to see if it is, they always mention stem cells if that’s the case. Otherwise I”m not worried about any of the ingredients in this and it’s up to you if you want to use it in pregnancy.
