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.

    Hi Doctor,

    I’m not sure what happened to my post, I couldn’t find it anymore? Maybe my internet was not working good yesterday.
    Could I ask you again if pregnant woman need to worry about hand-soap? I’m think to purchase some hand-soaps from Bath &Body works? I can’t provide the ingredients due to there are so many variety scents of hand-soap? Just wondering if you can help me out? Thanks in advance!

      Bath and Body works has so many scents, all of which are different and change almost weekly, that I will not review them in a full post. I have tried and everything turns over almost immediately, making weeks of my time worthless. You can ask about specific scents if you have an ingredient list, but I will not make a post for them.

            Off hand, I don’t. I think there are some included in the various brand lists. I’m sorry!
            There are a lot of brands that include chemical sunscreens (without testing for SPF) to prolong shelf life.

            Thank you for your speedy reply. You are so nice.

            Since there a lot of brands that includes sunscreen ingredient to prolong self life. Should pregnant women be careful of it as the hand soap? Or it doesn’t matter since it will be rinsed out by water?

I have posted a question here about 4 lancome products and was hoping to find an answer here, but can’t see any older comments, neither from PC nor my phone, they seem to just have disappeared. 🙁 any chance you could repost it? sorry for the trouble.

      I don’t allow questions about products from brands that I’ve reviewed outside of their own brand pages. They clutter up other pages, and if it’s a question that someone else has later people can find it more easily on the brand’s page. I have also spent untold number of hours reviewing many brands, including Lancome which is linked above. All of this is covered in the page how to ask about product safety, which is linked above. You asked here, instead of on the Lancome page, which is already in the alphabetized list.

    Many thanks! 🙏

    Dermaroller Mask-Intensive Hyaluronic Moisturizer

    https://dermarollerclinics.com/product/mask/

    Ingredients:

    Matrixyl®
    A patented peptide combination based on anti-aging research and can be considered a miracle treatment to prevent skin aging. Peptide increases the production of the skin’s own collagen and hyaluronic acid. Improves the elasticity and tone of the skin and helps smooth out wrinkles.
    Protects against the harmful effects of UV.

    Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
    Smooths the skin surface texture and improves the moisture retention capacity of the skin. Increases the enzyme activity of the skin and protects against oxidation damage caused by UV radiation (free radicals). Supports cell protection and stimulates tissue repair. Protects against premature aging.

    Hyaluronic Acid

    Binds moisture in the outermost skin layer and releases the stored moisture after several hours to maintain this effect for a long period of time. Increases the firmness of the tissue and smooths the skin. Small wrinkles are diminished and a skin-toning effect is created.

    Full Ingredient List
    Aqua, Propylene, Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Matrixyl (Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3), Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide-E (Cetyl-PG Hydroxyethyl Palmitamide), Coconut Acid, Fragrance

      The shampoo is fine for pregnancy and nursing.
      The conditioner has gluconolactone to avoid in pregnancy, but since you’re only applying to the end of your hair (which can’t absorb anything) you shouldn’t worry about it. Just don’t apply to your scalp.

      • 12.11.20
        BR said:

        Got it, thank you! One more question. Since I obviously use my hands to apply the conditioner and rub it in to the ends of my hair is that ok? Or better to be safe and use a different conditioner?

        • 12.11.20
          Christine said:

          Should be ok. At some point we’re all way over thinking all of this. Technically per my discussions with derms and OBs even worrying about any hair stuff at all is way over thinking it, I just worry about the stuff that’s actually on the scalp.

      This has a retinoid, Avoid in pregnancy and in nursing if you’re conservative
      Most of the more “proven” ingredients (esp the retinoid and the peptides) are all at the bottom of an extremely long ingredient list, WAY later than any preservatives. I’m not sure there’s enough to make a big difference.

        Anastasia said:

        Thank you for prompt reply!
        For Disinfecting hand gels, that I am using (Europe), unfortunately the only ingredient they specify on bottles is Ethanol (CAS 64-17-5).
        I was wondering if Ethanol itself might not be safe during pregnancy and better be avoided (maybe starting from certain concentration %).
        Thank you for your great website and support!

        • 12.15.20
          Christine said:

          Ethanol itself is ok and necessary for it to work. But typically it’s around 70% to kill viruses, and it is not the only ingredient. I don’t comment on products without a full list, as they may be elaving out ingredients that are not safe. I can’t take responsibility without that information.

      This is fine, but you typically don’t need to worry about eyebrow pencils. They’re a wax that creates a layer that sits on the skin and is almost impossible to absorb, very similar to eyeliners. More info here: Pregnancy Safe Makeup

    Hi, Doctor.
    I’m looking for a substitute firming soap or lotion for Mustela firming gel since it is quite expensive.
    My pre-pregnancy soap was Gluta White and Firm Soap but I stopped using it when I got pregnant.

    May I ask for your help if this is okay to use while nursing:
    Ingredients:
    Palm Oil, Pelm Kernel Oil, Tetrasodium EDTA, CI
    77891, Bioflavonoids, Algae, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Centella Asiatica, Carnitine, Tea Salicylate, D-Panthenol, Claire Blanche, L-Carnitine, L-Tartrate, Glutathione, Fragrane.

    for centella asiatica – I know this is safe but for the other ingredients like algae extract i’m worried that it will be like as sage extract the may affect the milk supply of the mother. Clair Blanche is a whitening complex composed of extracts of peony, scutellaria, and saxifraga flowers, glutathione, Arbutin, Kojic Acid, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine.
    I am planning to use the soap just for the legs and thighs since I get fatty legs full of cellulite when I got pregnant.

    Secondly, I just want to ask question for palmer’s cocoa butter firming lotion – is it also safe while nursing? because on its page it is only belong on pregnancy safe category. Just checking with you since when I read the ingredients, panax ginseng extract, does it affect milk supply?
    is it safe to use only on concentrated areas like tummy, legs and thighs? please advise.
    Apologizing for the long message.

      Christine said:

      You need to avoid arbutin and kojic acid while pregnant and nursing.

      Sorry, I’ve reviewed a LARGE number of other brands, but as I am rarely asked about either of those I have them lower on my to do list. You don’t need to worry about nail polish at all, your nails are dead proteins and can’t absorb anything.

    Hi, I’ve just come across your site and am so impressed with all the information you’ve shared.

    I have a question about a specific ingredient that I am unsure about: candelilla wax.

    I have tried to research it myself but can find no useful information. Everything I have read says that ‘pregnant and nursing women, and those with sensitive skin, are advised not to use Candelilla Wax without the advice of their medical professional’.

    But nothing further explains why! I’ve asked my obstetrician about it and he had no clue why either.

    Is this something you could maybe help with? Or would it be better to just avoid it until my pregnancy ends?

    Thanks so much!

      I don’t review nail products as you don’t need to worry about them- your nails are very thick and don’t absorb anything. Just use them in a well ventilated space.

    I found these two primarily organic skin care lines that I think are quite wonderful…
    Was hoping you could do a brand page for them bc I don’t see them on your list.
    1) cocokind: in particular I was wondering about their resurfacing mask – it has a retinol alternative that I am unfamiliar with and was wondering if safe
    2) beauty by earth: (sunscreens and self tanners in particular!). Thanks so much, your website is super informative!

      Both the foundation, blush stick and contour stick have a cell culture in it. I’m not sure if that’s stem cells or not (sometimes yes, sometimes no, it depends on the brand). My concerns about stem cells are in this post: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy. All 3 are otherwise ok for pregnancy and nursing

      The highlighter doesn’t have that ingredient and is fine for pregnancy and nursing

    Thank you so much for the research you’ve done to make this list. It has helped me out so much during my pregnancy.

    I was also wondering if you wanted to review a brand called Alima Pure. I think they are considered a clean brand and they have minimal ingredients for all their products.

    There are a couple cream blushes of theirs that I wanted to use on my lips. Based on the ingredients, do you think this is safe?

    Bijou: Caprylic/CapricTriglyceride (coconut derived), Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Squalane (oliver derived), Silica, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Powder, Tocopherol, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil [+/- CI 77742, CI 77891, CI 77491]

      The vitamin A must be in one of the extracts, brands like to call that out sometimes, but it isn’t something to worry about if in an extract. To me this looks fine for pregnancy and nursing.
      Propylene glycol is one of those that I’m not worried about. ingredients I’m not worried about during pregnancy

      1- has bakuchiol, which I’m currently screening out as a retinoid, so avoid in pregnancy and nursing.
      It also has willow bark which needs to be avoided in pregnancy.
      2- Glycolic acid, which also needs to be avoided in pregnancy.

    Hi there, I am really finding your blog incredibly helpful. How can I tell if a product ingredient is a hydroxy acid? You mention that all of they hydroxy acids, alpha, beta and poly, have pregnancy categories that recommend avoidance. So how can I tell if Isostearic Acid or Polyhydroxystearic Acid are not hydroxy acids? They are in so many of the foundations. Many thanks for your help in advance, Alisa

    • 1.5.21
      Christine said:

      There’s only a few actual hydroxy acids, neither of those are them. Glycolic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, malic acid, tartaric acid and gluconolactone are all hydroxy acids, but you don’t need to worry about lactic acid.

      • 1.6.21
        Alisa Davis said:

        Thanks so much. Are glycolic acid, mandelic acid, malic acid, tartaric acid and gluconolactone the only hydroxy acids to look out for? What about Linoleic Acid? It’s in the Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 hour foundation by Smashbox that you’ve already reviewed but I know the brand changes it’s formulation frequently and I believe you may have reviewed it a couple years ago. Here are the ingredients:

          Yes, those are the ones to worry about. Linoleic Acid isn’t an acid like you think of, it’s a fatty acid already found in your body. Info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linoleic_acid

        Even though you have reviews on your blog you do not review them? https://www.15minutebeauty.com/best-sunless-tanners-pale-skin.html/

        I just want to make sure that I am understanding correctly so I do what is best. You are saying there are no safe sunless tanners specifically for pregnancy? Or in general, avoid sunless tanners for everyone?

        You would advise to avoid sunless tanners completely during pregnancy and nursing, correct?

          My entire blog is NOT pregnancy beauty. This is a regular beauty blog that happens to have pregnancy products. That post is about sunless tanners in general.
          I’ve added some reviews here and there because even though I will state on a brand page that it isn’t safe, people don’t actually read the posts. I can have entire paragraphs in bold and people do not read them. Sunless tanners are not felt to be safe while pregnant (info here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy) and it could be argued that it applies to nursing as well as just in general. It’s actually something that comes up at dermatology conferences, are they at all safe? The general consensus is that it’s better than sun exposure, but not the safest thing due to the systemic absorption, even when not pregnant.

          I have this post about alternatives: pregnancy safe body bronzers and makeup.

      #1 is ok for pregnancy a nd nursing
      #2 might have stem cells? The way a few of them are written is the way some brands disclose stem cells, but it isn’t always stem cells (need to see what they’re advertising). If so, I would say ok for nursing but not pregnancy
