Pregnancy Safe Products from INNBeauty Project

Pregnancy Safe Products from INNBeauty Project

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 INNBeauty Project as of 4/3/2021. 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 INNBeauty Project 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.

        Hi doctor!
        I was hoping you could provide some clarity on stem cells? I am trying to learn as much as I can about pregnancy safe skincare and your website is amazing!
        I noticed you said this product is safe for pregnancy and nursing however , it lists “pomegranate stem cells” in the active ingredients. A different product I was researching (Glamglow Youthpotion Collagen Boosting Peptide serum) you have listed as not safe due to stem cells but the product advertises “raspberry stem cells”. I was hoping you could fill me in on what the difference is that makes one kind of stem cell safe and not the other? Is there a different kind of stem cell hiding in the glamglow I am not seeing?
        Thank you very much!!!

          So my concerns about stem cells are here:
          skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

          The issue with stem cells is that there isn’t a standard way to list them in an ingredient list, and most brands are inconsistent with the way they list it in an ingredient list. So, I pretty much have to rely on what their copywriters have chosen to highlight in all of their media/website, etc. Stem cells are a big buzzword so they will usually (but not always) call them out. Throw into the mix that some brands are choosing to call extracts stem cells in their marketing (because hey, maybe some stem cells got in there when we squeezed that apple), and the whole thing is a muddle.

          On top of that, my reviews are a moment in time, what things looked like at the brand when I reviewed them. You can always find the date of my most recent review in the post. The brand is free to revise formulas and their website at any time, even as soon as the day of my review. I screen out stem cells. I don’t consider them to be safe currently. I am NOT personally inconsistent with this. However, I am one person with a more than full time job and a family. I don’t have time to review the ingredient lists and websites of every product daily. Things change on the side of the brand and there’s only so much I can do.
