Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Good Molecules

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Good Molecules

Pregnancy safe skincare 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 Good Molecules as of 8/28/2019. 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.

Don’t See Your Product? 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 or are rude.

        Thank you!
        I noticed on the website that under the description for the rosehip oil it said “Provitamin A, a natural derivative of retinol” is it still ok to use?

    Hi Dr, just wondering if the discoloration serum is really safe during pregnancy ? Because its listed here safe but in the comments tranexamic acid is considered unsafe? Please advice

    Water, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Cetyl Tranexamate Mesylate, Cetyl Alcohol, Ceratonia Siliqua (Carob) Gum, Tamarindus Indica Seed Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol.

      It’s not listed as unsafe in the comments. I comment that I’m always a little leary of it but we don’t have enough evidence to consider it something to avoid at this time. I don’t have enough to actually put the ingredient on my to avoid list (which is already a very conservative list). There’s discussion in this post: Pregnancy Safe Melasma Treatment
      This product is fine during pregnancy.
