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.

          Hello, can I use Beaute Pacifique Defy Damage Skin Repair Serum.

          The brand says it uses a pregnancy/breasfeeding safe vitamin A, but is that a “thing”?

          Ingredients:
          Aqua (Water)Polysorbate 60C12-15 Alkyl BenzoateCaprylic/Capric TriglycerideSqualane

          is an oil naturally occurring in human skin and is an important part of the lipid system. Its penetration capacity is remarkably high. Nanometer droplets of squalane function as effective “transporters” for the A Vitamins and other oil soluble active ingredients. Young and healthy skin contains a high amount of squalane but the level will decrease dramatically with age. Therefore squalane is absorbed excellently into sun damaged and aged skin. A lack of squalane within the skin can lead to premature aging, very dry skin and a loss of elasticity. Areas of constantly exposed, dry and prematurely aged skin such as on the hands, elbows, heals and knees etc become incredibly soft immediately when squalane is applied in the right formulation.

          GlycerinMethyl Gluceth-20Cetearyl AlcoholPEG-20 StearatePropylene GlycolCitrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract

          is a natural source of Vitamin C that functions as a strong anti-oxidant and stimulates collagen synthesis. Helping to also recreate the ceramides in the epidermis. Citrus Limon Fruit Extract gently exfoliates the dead skin cells and reduces the problems of excessive oiliness.

          PhenoxyethanolEthylhexylglycerinPEG/PPG-4/12 DimethiconeSodium Ursolate and Sodium Oleanolate

          are two very powerful ingredients with a unique capacity to repair aged and sun damaged skin. The most remarkable scientific findings are the recreated collagen fibre structures at the same level as found in young skin. This rejuvenates completely the treated skin, including a striking recreation of the surface of the skin’s micro-topography.

          Tocopheryl Acetate

          is a type of Vitamin E that plays an important role by protecting both the skin and the products against harmful free radicals.

          Retinyl Palmitate

          is a particularly stable form of Vitamin A that we have formulated into our cremes, in a way to maintain its high potency – both during storage and on application to the skin. Encapsulated in nanometer sized droplets of squalane, the Vitamin A can penetrate deep into the skin in sufficient amounts to stimulate the type of cells, that synthesise lost collagen fibre structures providing a younger skin. Wrinkles and fine line diminish and throughout the complete structure of the skin it is significantly rejuvenated. Made prossible via our patented combination with squalane that functions as an effective delivery system penetrating through the entire depth of the skin, The Vitamin A transforms into a totally unique and remarkably efficient Anti-Aging action within the skin corresponding to a 10- 20 years rejuvenation.

          Tocopherol

          is another source of Vitamin E that plays an important role by protecting both the skin and the products against harmful free radicals and functions as a natural moisturizer and capable of reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

          AlcoholChamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower ExtractRetinyl Acetate

          is like Retinyl Palmitate a particularly stable form of Vitamin A and it has a similar remarkable efficient rejuvenating action in the skin working in parallel with and in the same manner as in Retinyl Palmitate. It enables the skin’s specialized cells to rebuild and repair sun damaged and aged skin comparable to Retinyl Palmitate.

          Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) OilAcrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate CrosspolymerParfum (Fragrance)DimethiconeHydrolyzed Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid

          is a mixture of two ingredients that together build an invisible shield of moisture binding barrier on the surface of the skin, to enable the skin to maintain its elevated level of moisture within the epidermis.

            Yeah, not really a thing. There are a few doctors out there that will say “Oh, it’s not as strong, it needs to transform a bit…” but it still works the same way, and the evidence in the literature links retinoids the most strongly to birth defects. So most of us recommend avoiding all retinoids.

    Hello, is SLS (Sodium lauryl sulfate ) safe in skin care during pregnancy and specially first trimester? I’ve read a lot in the internet and I’m confused, everything contains SLS

    • 2.16.22
      Christine said:

      Pretty much everything does contain SLS. I don’t know any physicians who recommend avoiding SLS, but it pops up occasionally on random websites.
      I will say that SLS tends to be drying and cause skin reactions, and your skin is more prone to reactions while pregnant. So that would be a reason to avoid it. But not a safety issue.

      It’s fine to use baby oil on baby, but I can’t think of any time I have recommended this as a pediatrician. We just don’t use it here now in the US for babies. Similar to baby powder.

        thank you! Just wondering why you don’t use it in the US if it is safe?! Would you reccommend to just avoid it? 🙂

      I haven’t seen it quite like that before, I’m not sure if they mean they have enough of it added to the oils that when they put the oils in they have to call it out?

    Thank you doctor for your previous answers! 😊🙏🏻 When it comes to insect bites (and to relieve their itch), we often have Camphor/Menthol liniments. I never put these on my face, just small dabs in arms/legs that get mosquito bites–and not everyday, just when needed… But I realized these might not be safe for those expecting pregnancy/are pregnant?

    1. OMEGA PAINKILLER – COUNTERIRRITANT
    Ingredients: Methyl Salicylate, Camphor, Menthol, Turpentine Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Liniment Base

    2. VICS VAPORUB
    Ingredients: Camphor 4.7%, Eucalyptus oil 1.2%, Menthol 2.6%

    ———-
    I realize that the 1st item should already be avoided because it has “methyl salicylate”? 😞 Would you also flag other ingredients? Thank you again!

    • 2.26.22
      Christine said:

      The first only has the salicylate issue.
      The 2nd I can’t comment on as it isn’t a full ingredient list.

      It’s chemical, these are the sunscreens:

      Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine
      Diethylhexyl Butamido Triazone
      Ethylhexyl Triazone

      It also has a salicylate to avoid in pregnancy. There are very few pregnancy safe sunscreen sprays, most are chemical based or have a salicylate

        Lisa said:

        Thank you for checking and letting me know what ingredients to look out for. I do have the ren mineral spf that’s safe. I was hoping there maybe a spray one that didn’t white me out so much. I would rather use a safe product of course 🙂

        • 2.26.22
          Christine said:

          Sprays are tricky to get into solution when they’re purely mineral based. Of note, sprays are actually basically impossible to apply correctly. We all know you need about 1 ounce of lotion on the average adult body to hit the correct SPF application. But what about spray? How far down do you hold the nozzle? How far away? How do you sweep the product? It’s actually because of those issues that the FDA has talked about no longer allowing sprays in the US. I’ve also taken care of a bunch of kids in my Peds ICU (my “other” life) who were there with severe asthma attacks due to spray sunscreens. Some of those kids weren’t even having the sunscreen applied to them, it was a kid nearby. Because of these issues I don’t use spray sunscreens with my family.

            Lisa said:

            Just to clarify theREN one I’m using is a cream. I always use a daily spf. Thanks for the additional details. It makes so much sense why not to use them.

    Hello Dr. Christine,
    Thanks a lot for your thoughtful initiative to help the ‘would be moms’ and ‘new moms’ !
    I was wondering when should I stop using pregnancy unsafe products while planning fir baby / trying to conceive? I’m planning for baby after recovering from covid last month and till now I’ve been using products with glycolic acid, arbutin , kojic acid for treatment of acne and scars (prescribed by my dermatologist) and had my glycolic acid peel treatment today. My ovulation period will start in 2days . Could you please let me know would it be harmful for my baby if I try to conceive this week? Should I wait for couple of weeks or a month after I stop using all these prescribed products/treatments?
    Mistakenly I forgot to read the ingredient lists of all the products and continued applying till today and was told by my dermatologist that glycolic acid peel is safe if not yet conceived.

    I would really appreciate if you kindly help me out with my quarries.

    Thanks Again.

        Dear Dr. Christine,
        Thank you so much for this helpful article ‘ https://www.15minutebeauty.com/pregnancy-safe-beauty-faq.html#ttc ’ which really helped me a lot to decide what to do.
        I’ve stopped using all the products with unsafe ingredients which are mentioned in your articles. Cancelled all of my glycolic acid peel sessions which my dermatologist advised me to get in next 3months.
        May Allah keep my body safe from those harmful ingredients which I’ve been using mistakenly and bless me with a healthy baby and safe pregnancy.

        Your articles are really helpful and you’ve already guided us through your previous articles which I’ve just noticed.

      The ingredients in all of these are garbled and have some repetitions of that garbling, or in some cases (esp #3) look like words but when you look more closely those aren’t words that actually mean anything (some are close but not quite right, like potashumphate in #3), so I can’t say for sure what a lot of that is meant to be. So I don’t feel comfortable answer about safety.

    Hello, I hope I am posting this correctly and in right spot. In reviewing pregnancy safe brands, I did not see any reviews for Attitude shampoo, specifically their Blooming Belly maternity shampoo. It is an EWG verified shampoo, but one ingredient has me concerned: ethyl acetate natural (pear)? Below is the ingredient list. Thank you so much for this website. I find it to be an incredible resource.

    Aqua / water / eau, sodium coco-sulfate, coco-glucoside, vegetable glycerin, sodium cocoyl isethionate, citric acid, panthenol (vitamin B5), sodium chloride, glyceryl oleate, sodium benzoate, inulin, potassium sorbate, hydrolyzed wheat protein, argania spinosa (argan) leaf extract, maltodextrin, cyamopsis tetragonoloba (guar) gum, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, 3-hexenol (green leaves), ethyl acetate natural (sweet pear).

    Dear Dr. Christine,
    My dermatologist prescribed ‘Clindamycin Lotion’ for the treatment of acne vulgaris . I wanted to have an expert advice and thought for asking you if it’s pregnancy safe (I’m not pregnant yet but trying to conceive) .

    Clindamycin Lotion:

    Ingredients:
    Each ml lotion contains Clindamycin Phosphate USP equivalent to Clindamycin 10 mg.

    Thank you so much for your previous suggestions which were really helpful and also for all the articles regarding pregnancy safe products with links and ingredients which helped us a lot to decide which products would be ok for us and which would not.

      Christine said:

      Clindamycin is fine (it’s an antibiotic), though not all of the lotions and gels are the same and you haven’t included the other ingredients.

        Nikita Rubab said:

        Dear Dr. Christine,
        Thank you so much for helping me out with this ingredient. I couldn’t find any other ingredient of this product on the ingredient list .. everywhere is written ‘Ingredients:
        Each ml lotion contains Clindamycin Phosphate USP equivalent to Clindamycin 10 mg.’

        I apologise for your inconvenience and will definitely try to find another product with Clindamycin which has complete ingredient list and send you to check .

        Thank you so much for your kind gesture.
        May Allah bless you with a healthy and blissful life.

      I obviously have ads (and I need to tell my ad company to tone it down, I rarely look at the “front end” of the website and they appear to have gone quite crazy since I last looked at it) and I get money from affiliates. I do well with it already, but that’s very sweet of you to offer to help support my endeavors! Just use my links to purchase and tell your friends if you thought this was helpful 🙂

      I would avoid both the kojic acid and arbutin in pregnancy and nursing (they work the same way as hydroquinone, so likely have the same effects), also has licorice root to avoid in pregnancy.

      I’m not certain if the Vitis Vinifera 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.

      Otherwise, this is safe for pregnancy and nursing

    Also, would you mind reviewing the arbonne skincare and makeup brand?

      Christine said:

      Arbonne is on my to do list, I just haven’t gotten there.
      Neither of those lists are full ingredient lists, they’re just key ingredients (things need to be in chemical names, no sunscreens are listed, etc) so I can’t provide safety info.

        Joanne Mcneill said:

        Thank you for the info, the full list isn’t on the website. I’ll reach out to my dealer to see if she can provide further assistance.
