Pregnancy Safe Skincare from The Inkey List

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from The Inkey List

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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from The Inkey List as of 3/12/2022. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. 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.

    Hi. Why did you mark glycolic acid from inkey as unsafe? My dermatologist has listed glycolic acid as safe to use during pregnancy.

    • 10.14.19
      15mins said:

      Glycolic Acid is NOT universally accepted as safe by the medical community. It is absorbed at least 28% when applied to the skin and we have no real safety data. More about this here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

        Lawsonia is fine. I would likely avoid hydroquinone, arbutin and kojic acid while nursing.

        Unfortunately there are brands out there stating that it “works just like a retinoid” and we have no actual safety data. Just people saying “it works like a retinoid, but is safe”, but no reasoning to back them up and no further explanation of mechanisms. Until more info is out I recommend avoiding it and I’ve been screening Bakuchiol out like a retinoid, which is the #1 ingredient to avoid during pregnancy.

            This comment was in 2020, I’ve discussed the ingredient in question with other physicians and looked around since then, this discussion is relevant for the ingredient: ingredients I’m not worried about during pregnancy
            The product is appropriately listed in the post.

    Hi! Thank you so so much for this website and this list of products. I have terrible melasma and only want to use products that are safe while nursing! I ordered the tranexamic acid and vitamin c and Egf brightening serum along with the ordinary’s azelaic acid suspension cream in hopes these will help! I already use the ordinary’s hyaluronic acid+b5 serum morning and night. To make sure I’m using these correctly is there an order I should be applying all of these products in? I of course use mineral sunscreen during the day as well.
