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. Please be polite enough to read how to do this, and refrain from sending me rude emails if you can’t follow the directions.

    Hello Christine!

    Thank you for all the useful information and advice you offer.

    I’m sorry to ask you about the same product again, but it seems I can’t find my comment or your answer.
    I’d like you to review the catrice one drop weightless coverage concealer.
    I have already checked at the list with the pregnancy safe concealers and you only review the catrice camouflage concealer.

    Hello!

    Sorry if I missed this somewhere, but do liquid brush cleaners need to be something of concern? I know it’s applied to the brush and not the skin but I wasn’t sure if it would be transferred or not.

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    First of all, a huge THANK YOU for putting together this guide! It is hugely helpful and fills a big gap – I haven’t found anything remotely like it. And it’s great to see so many brands I use included!

    I wanted to ask about the Nécessaire body products (body wash, exfoliation, lotion) and if you might be able to review.

    Thank you and look forward to hearing from you!

      I think you’re missing a large part of the ingredient list here. It appears to be cut off mid-ingredient at the end? And I’m not sure if the stem cells are in the Crithmum Maritimum Callus Culture filtrate or not (usually stem cells say cells in there, this is something different). Regardless, I recommend avoiding stem cells while pregnant: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      This is one of those face creams with the neuropeptides, which they say penetrate into your skin and do things to the muscles to make your face look smoother. If it can go there, it can definitely get into your blood stream and go systemic. I have no idea what that could possibly do while pregnant, so I’d leave that up to you. I don’t see other ingredients of concerns, but the neuropeptide ingredient (Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate) makes me a bit nervous.

      The Dr. Bronner’s has hemp, so it’s up to you. here’s my hemp disclaimer:
      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.

      The Conditioner is fine, though note you really don’t need to worry about conditioners as they only go on your hair, which can’t absorb anythinng.
      The cleansing towelettes are ok for pregnancy and nursing.
      I think pure argan oil is fine for pregnancy and nursing

    Hello!

    Thank you for this amazing website.

    I was wondering about glamnetic magnetic lashes while pregnant. To use, they require a magnetic eyeliner.

    Ingredients for liner:
    CI 77499 (Iron Oxide), water, Dimethicone, Acrylates/octylacrylamide copolymer, Propylene glycol, Butylene Glycol, PVP, Steareth-21, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, BHT, Chlorphenesin, fragrance, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

    Here is the website where they provide more information on the ingredients of this product. https://glamnetic.com/pages/faq

    This is the statement they have under “is it safe?” :

    “Yes, all our products have been tested for safety. Our eyeliner has the same types of ingredients you might see in other liners or mascara. What makes our liner magnetic is our iron oxide ingredient. There are no heavy metals or parabens in our formula. Iron oxide is a cosmetic ingredient commonly used for pigment and is rated as non-toxic according to EWG’s skin deep profile. Of course, as with any eye cosmetic products, if you have any pre-existing eye conditions, consult your doctor. For a break down of all our ingredients, please visit our FAQ ingredients section.”

    Hi, Your website has been invaluable to my wife and I. Our newborn is beyond healthy and we feel very grateful and lucky. We cut out EVERYthing listed in your ingredients to avoid – not an easy feat since many ‘pregnancy branded’ products shockingly contain many of the items that should be avoided. I will never ignore an ingredients list again.
    My question is about: Salicylate. That is also contained in aspirin which is prescribed to take in small amounts for many pregnant women, yet it needs to be avoided in products used on the skin. How can this be? Are they different versions of the same thing and the aspirin one is safe to take orally? I asked our Dr and their answer was not satisfying. I feel they didn’t actually know, so I wanted to ask you. Thank you if you are able to answer this question.

      It’s actually to be AVOIDED in pregnancy in the US, certainly not “by many women”. We use it very judiciously for certain things in pregnancy (pre-eclampsia and certain hypercoagulable disorders), but it and other prostaglandin analogues are used for things like closing the ductus arteriosus after birth, that’s one of many reasons to avoid it during pregnancy. The salicylates are to be avoided in pregnancy due to the risk of this.

      I can’t review the second cleanser without an ingredient list.
      The first product looks ok to me for pregnancy and nursing if those are all of the ingredients. Clean and Clear sometimes separates out the drug ingredients, and that’s often salicylic acid, which you need to avoid in pregnancy. Look around on the bottle to be sure it isn’t there

      I’m not sure if the Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract is a stem cell ingredient or not. Some brands it is, some it isn’t. My concerns about stem cells are here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      Otherwise it looks ok for pregnancy and nursing, so I guess it depends on if they are stem cells or not and how comfortable you are with that.

    Hi there

    I did not see the brand Guerlain in your list. Can you please review this brand?
    Thank you for all the information you have provided on your website. It is very helpful.

      Christine said:

      I already have a post about 90% done. But please don’t comment on other random brands. I try to reserve the comments for ONLY the brand on that post, it makes it hard for other people to sort through the comments if they are looking for something. As stated at the bottom of each post, I delete comments in which you do this.

      I have discussion on extracts and oils here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      I don’t always agree with the EWG, they’re highly controversial in the medical and scientific communities as they like to draw conclusions from studies that the authors disagree with. In particular, our views on product safety during pregnancy often differ.

      This product looks ok for both pregnancy and nursing to me.

      #2 ok for pregnancy and nursing
      #3 has hemp and salicylic acid. The SA means I would avoid in pregnancy for sure, ok for nursing. The hemp part is still up to you.
      #4 has salicylic acid, ok for nursing but not pregnancy

      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.

    Hello! Your blog is insanely fabulous! Thank you so much for posting so much helpful information for all of us.

    I would love to see more about ARCONA products. I use EWG Skin Deep to select my beauty products. Now I’m taking one step more to make sure all products are safe for pregnancy.

    This is an exfoliator I love, ARCONA Cranberry Gommage. The only ingredient I can see that is questionable (and please do correct me if there are others) is willow bark. Overall, is this a safe product? The ingredients are as follows:

    Aqua (Distilled Water), Diatomaceous Earth, Jojoba Esters (Beads), Glycerin*, Caprilic/Capric Triglyceride(Plant Oils), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Behenyl Alcohol, Sucrose Stearate, Vaccinium Macrocarpon(Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Red Raspberry (Rubus idaeus) Extract, Zeolite, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extract, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Xanthan Gum, Alcohol Denat., Volcanic Minerals, Maltodextrin, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance (Natural).

    Thank you for any information.

      Talc is fine.
      this shampoo has hemp, my disclaimer for that is below. It is otherwise ok.

      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.

    Alastin Skincare

    Hi, first THANK YOU for your lists! So helpful.

    Hi Doctor,

    I wish I found this website sooner. There’s so much valuable information here.

    I am breastfeeding and ever since my pregnancy, I’ve not used toners or moisturizers. I was just so afraid to put anything on my face except the regular soap.

    Hi there!
    I’ve been reading your posts about Retinol/breastfeeding. I know doctors have mixed opinions on whether they see it as a concern or not. I’m new to the retinol world and started using about 6 months before getting pregnant and then quit using it. I’m now breastfeeding and was wanting to start using again but not sure if all retinol is “created equal” with the ingredients that are in it! 🙂
    Here’s the ingredients in the SkinPharm 1% Retinol drops:
    Dimethicone, Isododecane, Caprylic,Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Glycerol Oleate, Retinol, Sea Whip Extract, Bisabolol, Hydroxymethoxyphenyl Decanone, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopherol, BHT

      Christine said:

      It’s a very mixed recommendation currently. Pretty much all retinoids are treated equally, we can’t do the studies needed to differentiate them or the % they are used at (the studies are unethical). It’s really a personal decision if you want to use retinoids while nursing. I used them, the trend toward avoiding them was after I had my girls. If I was nursing now, I would concentrate on using a great exfoliator (either physical with a clarisonic or chemical such as glycolic acid) and then vitamin C

    Thankyou for your help doc!

          I can’t say that all breast firming creams are safe, they vary by a lot, I would need an exact product with an ingredient list to comment. Most are the same as a basic face cream.

      Christine said:

      I would avoid the night serum due to the gluconolactone. The glycolic acid isn’t in the ingredient list, so they’re likely considering it to be in the extracts, which doesn’t count for pregnancy safety. But the gluconolactone does. Ok for nursing though.
      The skin elixir looks ok for both pregnancy and nursing

    Hello! I have a nail and cuticle biting problem when I’m anxious or stressed. Just a couple of months ago, prior to getting pregnant, I started using Mavala Stop. It has worked really well for strengthening and the bitter taste is an immediate wake up when I start doing it subconsciously. Are the ingredients in this that I should be concerned about during pregnancy?

    Mavala Stop from Switzerland

    Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Ester of PVM/MA Copolymer, Phthalic Anhydride/Trimellitic Anhydride/Glycols Copolymer, Isopropyl Alcohol, Alcohol Denat, Denatonium Benzoate, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Benzophenone-1, CI 60725 (D&C Violet No. 2).

      The benzophenone-1 is a chemical sunscreen that I would avoid while pregnant

    Hello! Your site has been incredibly helpful to me! I’ve been able to get through most of my skincare and makeup drawers to weed out products that I should probably avoid while pregnant! Having all of this info in one place has been a godsend! I would love to see your pregnancy-safe reviews of Thrive Cosmetics (https://thrivecausemetics.com/) as well as a blog post on pregnancy-safe nail products (polish, press ons, removers, cuticle treatments, etc). Thank you for all of your hard work!

    • 7.13.20
      Christine said:

      Thrive is already on my to do list, I love their products!
      For nail products, anything on the actual nail is ok as it’s dead protein and can’t absorb anything, so all polishes and removers are actually ok as long as you use them in a ventilated area. There’s already a lot of cuticle products in the lists above.

      Avoid in pregnancy, not sure about nursing:

      Not sure about pregnancy or nursing:

      Unfortunately, nothing topical has ever been found to be helpful for stretch marks or prevention. Dermatologists typically recommend just massaging in some sort of moisturizer, any one that you want to use is fine. After pregnancy many of the usual anti-aging cream ingredients can help (retinoids especially), and later there are laser treatments if they’re really bad. I wish I could be more helpful!

Info here on why sometimes brands and I disagree: pregnancy beauty FAQ, and some info here on hydroxy acids: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy Basically, we don’t have info but know they penetrate and we don’t trust them.

      #1 has hemp, licorice root and a form of salicylic acid
      I’m not comfortable saying hemp is fully safe in pregnancy or nursing, my reasoning is below and that’s up to you. The other 2 ingredients are ones I recommend avoiding in pregnancy for sure, but ok for nursing.
      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.

      #2 has a few things that could be stem cells, but they aren’t always (not all brands label them the same), there’s discussion on that here and it’s up to you: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      I don’t see any other ingredients to be concerned about there
