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.

          This has a retinoid. Avoid in pregnancy and in nursing if you’re conservative
          There’s also salicylate to avoid in pregnancy.

      Hi there, thanks a lot for setting up this website. I found it very useful. just wondering would you be interested in adding two more brands to your list- Valmont , La prairie. Both are very popular European brands, I think adding these two brands will be a great asset to everyone. Thanks

        They’re both on my to do list, but unfortunately La Prairie doesn’t really release their ingredient lists, so I’m currently unable to provide a good list for them 🙁

    Hello, I am looking for pregnancy safe sunscreen in the UK and there really isn’t much available. Is Badger Unscented SPF30 Clear Zinc Sunscreen safe?

    Ingredients: *Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Uncoated Zinc Oxide, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Tocopherol (Sunflower Vitamin E), *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract. *=Certified Organic

    antioxidant-rich Sunflower Oil base. Active ingredient: 18.75% uncoated clear zinc oxide.

    I couldn’t find Badger on your product list.

    Thanks for your help!

      Are you sure this is the full ingredient list? It looks like a featured ingredients list rather than a full ingredient list, I don’t want to miss something.

        Ruth said:

        Hi Christine, thanks for your quick reply. It looks to be the ingredients list on the back of the bottle. I missed the word‘Non-Nano’ from uncoated zinc oxide. Some of the sites say in the marketing info that it only has 5 ingredients. Looks like the company have discontinued making it now but it’s still available online.

        Ingredients: *Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Non-Nano Uncoated Zinc Oxide, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Tocopherol (Sunflower Vitamin E), *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract. *=Certified Organic

    Hi! I was wondering what your thoughts were on Fitglow’s lash serum.

    Ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, *Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail Plant) Extract, Glycerin, Lupine Amino Acids , Sodium PCA , *Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Cell Extract, Cellulose Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Levulinate. *CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

    Is the grape fruit cell that extract a concern because of stem cells or are they not stem cells?

    Thank you!

    • 4.19.21
      Christine said:

      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.

    Hi Christine,

    Thank you so much for this amazing resource- it’s been so valuable to me during my pregnancy, especially when midwife / doctors appointments have been cut due to covid! I was wondering if you could please tell me whether this shower oil is safe? It claims to be but it includes vitamin A so I was a bit confused. It’s the Sans Ceuticals Activator 7 oil and the ingredients list is:
    INGREDIENTS:
    Squalane [Olive] Fruit Oil
    Olea Europaea [Olive] Fruit Oil
    Simmondsia Chinensis [Jojoba] Seed Oil
    Oenothera Biennis [Evening Primrose] Oil
    Limnanthes Alba [Meadowfoam] Seed Oil
    Adansonia Digitata [Baobab] Seed Oil
    Retinyl Palmitate [Vitamin A]
    Tocopherol [Vitamin E]
    Fragrance — ECOCERT
    Many thanks in advance.

      Ok for pregnancy and nursing: 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11

      Ok for nursing but not pregnancy: none

      Avoid in both pregnancy and nursing:
      2: retinoid, salicylate
      5: retinoid
      7: retinoid

      10: I can’t answer this one as it says vitamin A without saying which chemical name, so I don’t know if that’s a retinoid or not.

      Jane said:

      Thank you so much ☺️ I so appreciate it. This is the best website ever, you’re so helpful and informative! Yes, the Vitamin A was listed as a main ingredient in no 10. It reads: “Vitamin A is the most frequent form is retinol palmitate. By stimulating epidermal revitalisation, this substance prevents excessive keratinisation. It is known to improve the horny layer’s structure and restore skin elasticity. By regulating melanogenesis, it also lightens skin discolorations”
      I am assuming this is a no go, I’m sorry I should have added this to the above post!
      Thanks so much again, so helpful!!!! ☺️

        Christine said:

        I agree, I’d consider it a no go then. Usually they list the actual chemical. The main reason I said I’m not sure with that Vitamin A, rather than just saying no, was sometimes it’s beta-carotene instead, which is actually fine.

        I know that in second one there is salicylate, but I wonder if this can do any harm if used just once? I need it for my wedding to apply on chest, neck and arms..

          #1 Safe for pregnancy and nursing
          #2 Ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to salicylate

          I don’t feel comfortable saying it’s fine to use at all, which is why I recommend avoidance. Have you seen this list? Pregnancy Safe Body Bronzers, Makeup and Highlighters

Also, if there’s any hyularonic acid syrum that you recommend, I’d love to know!

    Thank you so very much!

    Hello! I hope this message finds you and yours safe and healthy during these times. I cannot thank you enough for what you do, your site has been a life saver. Pregnancy has made me anxious enough so to have somewhere I know I can go for answers to my worries really helps put me at ease.
    I tried searching back to see if you’d already shared information about Huxley products but I don’t think I’ve been looking in the right place. Is Huxley’s Keep Calm Healing Mask safe?

        Hi Christine,
        It will be great to screen the Pipette and add it to the safe brands list. The brand is created by the same parent company, Amyris, that created the Biossance products. I have been going through their products as well, and looks like some great skin care products for expecting moms.

      I’m not certain if the Panax Ginseng Callus 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.

      #1 and 2 I don’t think you have the right ingredients. They’re both labelled as Hemp (which I think should be avoided in pregnancy and nursing), but neither list hemp in the ingredients. When I look at the Tres site, the shampoo has the wrong ingredients (I didn’t check the conditioner). So, I don’t think those are the correct lists, but I recommend avoiding hemp anyways. Given the mix up, if the other ingredient lists are from the same place I would definitely check bottles before you start using.

      Ok for pregnancy and nursing:

      Ok for nursing but not pregnancy:

          There’s no evidence that it isn’t safe, and has long been regarded in the US medical community as safe. I wouldn’t use giant amounts daily (because that can cause issues even when not pregnant), but this is the first I’ve heard of it not being safe in pregnancy.

    Hi Dr.,
    Greatly appreciate your help to navigate the safety of products. Are the products below safe for pregnancy/nursing?

    Thank you!

      Both are fine for pregnancy and nursing.
      Everything I worry about is here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      Sage is fine topically during pregnancy. You need to ingest extremely large amounts to have any effects (similar to rosemary) and physicians don’t advise avoiding in the diet, and it isn’t accepted by the medical community as something you need to avoid topically.

      It’s the Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate
      Discussion here: Why did you say this product has sunscreen when there isn’t an SPF?
      Also I think there are a few ingredients that are suspicious for stem cells (Malus Domestica Fruit Extract, Rosa Damascena Callus Culture Extract), but I would check with the brand about that.

          Christine said:

          It’s kind of a similar argument though. It isn’t there for the SPF, it’s there for shelf life. But every time I screen a product that claims to be mineral and then find a chemical sunscreen… it kind of angers me. I feel like it’s false advertising 🙁

    Hi there,
    My husband uses a body wash with retinyl palmitate, a shampoo with salicylic acid and a hair styling product with licorice root in it. I just noticed this as I was cleaning our bathroom drawers the other day. I am pregnant and I do not use his products with these ingredients in them. I use my own pregnancy-safe beauty products. However, my husband and I share the same shower and same bed (among other things we share:) ). Is this going to pose harm to me and my future baby, since I am pregnant? Do I have to review all of his bathroom products? (He has others.)

    • 5.4.21
      Christine said:

      I think you’re way over thinking this. Our skin is a barrier, and it actually kind of hard for products to absorb into the skin. Even when applied directly to your own skin, brands need to go and really prove that things are absorbed. The chances of something being on the tile of the shower or sheets of the bed… it’s pretty impossible. I wouldn’t worry about it!

      Personally, I think old self tanner turns me orange, so I’d take that as an excuse to try new. The NKD looks interesting, you just put it on for only 10 minutes and then wash off? Do you like it?

      Ok for nursing but not pregnancy:
      1: I’m not certain if the Ocimum Basilicum Hairy Root 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 Doc,
    Love this page! It’s been wonderful to use as a guide as I’m new to pregnancy. I tried to find a page on Redken but didn’t see one, possibly because it’s not safe yet I haven’t found any info directly saying that either online. Would love to hear what you think of the Redken frizz dismiss hair instant deflate oil-in-serum. The ingredients are:

    Hi,
    A generic question about full-spectrum sunscreens. I read the guidance here: https://www.15minutebeauty.com/full-spectrum-sunscreen-broad.html/. It says that “The good news is that you can achieve full spectrum UV coverage if you check the ingredient lists. “. Also saw on this link: https://www.15minutebeauty.com/pregnancy-safe-sunscreens.html, that Zinc Oxide has coverage across UVB, UVA-II and UVA-I, while titanium dioxide has only overage for UVB and UVA-II. Does this mean that for “full-spectrum coverage” (I loved the research behind broad vs full spectrum, and esp the term “full spectrum” itself 🙂 ), the product must contain Zinc Oxide, even if it doesn’t contain Titanium Dioxide? Meaning if a product only has Titanium Dioxide, it does no provide the “full coverage”?

    This might be obvious, but just wanted to doubly confirm.
    Thanks

      Note, you don’t need to worry about most hair products, please read this: Hair products to worry about
      (I’m just hoping it will save you having to ask about many and then wait for me to reply)

        Thanks for the reply! I wondered about that one as it stays on the scalp and is meant to help with hair growth (I’ve had a lot of shedding during pregnancy!) so it’s a relief it’s ok. Thanks again

    I have been using Cover FX Power Play foundation. It’s listed as safe on your site but ThinkDirty indicates that this ingredient is a concern for pregnancy: PERFLUOROALKYLETHYL PHOSPHATE

    What is your opinion? Is that an ingredient you are concerned about? I’m bot sure if think dirty is very broad or accurate.

      Most of the scientific and medical community aren’t fans of the EWG, as they seem to have different interpretations of studies than the evidence states, and sometimes very different than the scientists that did the study. I’ve already screened out every ingredient that I’m worried about.

      I can’t answer as “bark fruit” isn’t really a thing… and Aquatide isn’t a chemical name, it’s something they made up. They aren’t following FDA guidelines with clear and concise labelling.

    Hi Doc, just a quick question about alcohol in beauty products. Is it allowed because it’s contained in very small insignificant amounts? I see a lot of approved products with this ingredient, just says “alcohol” not cetearyl or smth. Thanks a bunch!

    • 5.11.21
      Christine said:

      It’s fine, it only gets absorbed in incredibly tiny amounts, and it isn’t alcohol like you drink.

          Both are fine for pregnancy and nursing
          Any heat protector should be fine since you shouldn’t be applying at your roots. Anything you apply beyond the 1 inch or so closest to the scalp you don’t need to worry about.
