Pregnancy Safe Skincare from La Roche-Posay

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from La Roche-Posay

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 every pregnancy safe skincare product from La Roche-Posay as of 4/8/2020. 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 La Roche-Posay 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.

Please check carefully for your product’s name. La Roche-Posay’s names are somewhat difficult to determine as they often list something different on their own site than what is on the packaging, and then DermStore often lists something different. Click a few links for things that are close, I promise I went through all of the La Roche-Posay US site and the DermStore site, which had the biggest selection.

    Hi, I’ve started using Effaclar deep cleaning foaming cream, effaclar mat moisturiser and and the effaclar anti shine mask for my acne prone skin but I’m trying for a baby? I’ve looked on your list and I don’t think I can use them. Please can you confirm? Also, if I can’t use them will it effect anything as I could be early in pregnancy?

    • 4.25.19
      15mins said:

      If they have the same ingredients as the products I’ve listed above, I would see which category your exact products fall under. Note La Roche Posay has a lot of products with very similar names. I would only use products that I have listed under pregnancy beauty.

      Please refer to my Pregnancy Beauty FAQ regarding use of a product that isn’t on the “safe” list.

    Thanks again!

      Both of these looks ok to me.
      Honest company is just like others, they like to market how “natural” they are, but they aren’t 100% pregnancy safe. It varies by product.

          Your hair can’t absorb anything, so you don’t need to worry about it. I would only worry about things that you apply directly to your scalp, which is pretty much just shampoo.

            The nioxin is ok
            The Clinique has a chemical sunscreen, but I can’t figure out if it is really a powder or more of a cream? Powders sit on the surface of the skin really and don’t get absorbed, creams are more likely to absorb. So I guess if it’s a powder it’s fine, but if not then I’d save it for nursing.

    Omg… just read on your website that the serum for darkspot of laroche posay shouldnt be consumed during pregnancy.. i wore it every day.. and my baby was born with severe hearing loss. I hope it is not linked.. i still cant find the cause as we did all kinds of genetic tests. Do you think this could have a link! Have you heard of any other issues like that?

    • 9.12.19
      15mins said:

      I haven’t heard of anything specific with regards to hearing loss for anything topical. Hearing loss is one of those things that has a LOT of things that can cause it in young children, and while the chances are good that you’ll never know why your baby has hearing loss, it is highly unlikely to be from your skincare. Things like antibiotics, other illnesses, even just issues with cartilage can cause this. I don’t think it was your skincare at all. NOPE. I would not worry about that.

    Hi Doc, I have been using La Roche Posay Effaclear medicated gel acne cleanser for severe inflammatory acne. It controlled it better than anything else. I’m in my first trimester and continued to use it because I read up to 2.0% Salicylic acid is ok in a face wash. I decreased to using it once every other day and use something else with 0.5% salicylic acid the rest of the time. Is this safe or do you suggest not even using 2.0% Salicylic acid. Thanks !

      Many physicians (including me) think you need to avoid salicylic acid during pregnancy because it is a BHA AND a salicylate. Discussion on the % ingredient here: But what about this % of an ingredient?
