Pregnancy Safe Products from Garnier

Pregnancy Safe Products from Garnier

Pregnancy safe beauty products can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Garnier as of 11/5/2020. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about Garnier on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.

Which hair products do you need to worry about?

Technically, none. Most OBs will tell you not to worry about any hair products. Your hair is a dead protein, and it can not absorb anything. It’s amazing how pregnancy brain can take over and we forget that simple fact!

Personally, I screened products that would sit on my scalp for a few minutes (aka- shampoos, scrubs, etc). My thought process was that those products would be similar to a face wash, even if washed off right away it sits there for a bit. As well, most cleansers are formulated to leave some ingredients behind, to fulfill those product claims such as moisturizing or anti-aging. So, on this list you’ll find products that sit on your scalp. This is shampoo, scalp treatments and root styling products.

Products that don’t need to be screened are ones that are not applied near the scalp. Most styling products should just be on the hair shaft. Conditioner and treatment masques don’t usually touch your scalp, note I’ve screened conditioners for Garnier because I’m tired of explaining that you  don’t need to worry about conditioners (if you’re reading this, you might be the only one that reads it). If you’re worried about sprays being inhaled, I recommend holding your breath while you spray and then step away a few feet (note, I recommend doing this regardless of your pregnancy/nursing status). If you apply any hair products to the hair shaft only, further from the scalp, they’re all safe (even if I screened them as not safe). This is because your hair can not absorb them.
