Pregnancy Safe Products from Ilia Beauty

Pregnancy Safe Products from Ilia Beauty
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 Ilia Beauty as of 8/5/2021. 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.

Which makeup do you need to worry about?

There are a lot of products you don’t need to screen, and it really depends upon the formulation. You don’t need to worry about powders such as setting powder, highlighters or eye shadows. Eye liners and brow products that are wax based pencils also don’t need to be screened. Mascaras and mascara-like primers and brow products also don’t need to be screened.

I have purposefully not screened these products, and as I’m usually overwhelmed with request to review products that should be screened, I will not review these products for you. Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup for more explanation.

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 Ilia 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.

    Hello!

    Hello,

    On the Ilia review for pregnancy safe products the True Skin Serum Concealer is listed as not safe. However, it is recommended as a pregnancy safe concealer on your concealer review page. Please confirm if it is safe or not:)

    Hello,

    I am a bit confused about the Ilia True Skin Serum Concealer. Is this ok or not? On this page it as listed as NOT pregnancy safe, but on in the “safe concealer” page it is listed as safe?

      There’s a statement on that page about always deferring to the brand lists, as the round ups do NOT get updated in the case of reformulations. I’ve just removed the product from there, but also verified that the statement is there (and it was). Only the brand pages are updated, it’s too hard to review all of the round ups. This is ok for nursing but not pregnancy.

    hello, I wasn’t able to find any information on your “ingredient information” pages about why to avoid Gluconolactone. Do you have any information or sources you could share here? As always, thank you so much for your resources!!

    • 2.6.21
      Christine said:

      Gluconolactone is a polyhydroxy acid, there’s discussion on the page

    Tia said:

    Hi Dr, thank you for this website, It is so useful. Just a question about the PHA – Gluconolactone. Its an ingredient you have put to avoid in the ilia skin serum foundation and conealer. I was under the impression that this was even more gentle than lactic acid and therefore safe, is this not the case then?

    • 2.16.21
      Christine said:

      It’s not a matter of being more gentle to skin, it’s something that is more highly absorbed than lactic acid and other AHAs and we have no safety data. It’s thought to work similarly to AHAs. Note, lactic acid gets a pass only because it is something that is already made in your body, so adding a little more topically won’t mke a difference.

    Hi! Thank you so much for all of the work you’ve done in sharing your knowledge! I recently found out I was pregnant and I took with me to the doctor my Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 with the ingredient list. My doctor said it was fine to use, and that the Butyloctyl Salicylate used topically (and under 2%) was not an issue during pregnancy. Then I came here to do more research for other products I’d just purchased, and found the Super Serum on the no list! Now I’m so worried. Is there any info/text you can direct me to that I can share with my doctor? At minimum I’d like to point this out to him in case he isn’t aware of the latest information out there! Thank you so much for your thoughts, I truly appreciate it! 💛

    • 7.6.21
      Christine said:

      My list is pretty conservative, none of these things are straightforward and the recommendations are slightly different when you’re a pediatrician vs OB (I’m peds). And in general I can tell you that coming at your doctor like that is a great way to have it really backfire and have him feel attacked. My recs are overall conservative, and all doctors have different recommendations for what to avoid as there’s little to no actual information in the literature (the studies we actually need to do are all unethical to do, so we make educated guesses). I would likely ask why he feels it’s safe to use and he can explain his reasoning.

      But Salicylates are pretty commonly recommended to avoid in pregnancy, my own OB recommended avoiding it 11 years ago when I was pregnant with my youngest. The 2% isn’t something I’ve heard mentioned for Salicylates in general, many people try to say that for Salicylic Acid. Note there isn’t any evidence to back that up, it’s mentioned as the % because that’s the max amount of salicylic acid you’re allowed to have in an over the counter product. The % in a product really shouldn’t matter, there’s some discussion here: But what about this % of an ingredient?
