Pregnancy Safe Skincare from L’Occitane

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from L'Occitane

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 L’Occitane as of 2/7/2022. 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.

    Hello,

    I just wanted to point out that some products listed under the “safe list” actually contain ingredients that are not safe to be used during pregnancy. For example, the L’Occitane Shea Light Comforting Cream, Shea Butter Ultra Comforting Cream, and several other facial moisturizers, contact benzyl benzoate. It should be avoided during pregnancy or nursing.

      Benzyl Benzoate is thought to be safe by the medical community. Please refer to my post on skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy to see what I screen out.

    Hi doctor, thank you for all the information you provided in your website. It’s really helpful 😊

    1. Could you please advise if the L’Occitane Intensive Repair Shampoo is safe for pregnancy?

    INGREDIENTS: AQUA/WATER – SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE – DECYL GLUCOSIDE – PEG-7 GLYCERYL COCOATE – COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE – CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) OIL – ANGELICA ARCHANGELICA ROOT OIL – ANGELICA ARCHANGELICA SEED OIL – AVENA STRIGOSA SEED EXTRACT – LAVANDULA HYBRIDA OIL – SODIUM CHLORIDE – HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL – LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA (LAVENDER) OIL – CANANGA ODORATA FLOWER OIL – PELARGONIUM GRAVEOLENS LEAF OIL – CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) PEEL OIL – HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE (PALM) GLYCERIDES CITRATE – GLYCERIN – PANTHENOL – COCO-GLUCOSIDE – GLYCERYL OLEATE – POLYQUATERNIUM-7 – HYDROXYPROPYL GUAR HYDROXYPROPYLTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE – CITRIC ACID – LECITHIN – TOCOPHEROL – ASCORBYL PALMITATE – SODIUM BENZOATE – POTASSIUM SORBATE – PARFUM/FRAGRANCE – LIMONENE – LINALOOL.

    2. The L’Occitane Gentle & Balance Shampoo is Sulfate free but it has Benzyl Salicylate in the composition. I was advised that the quantity of Salicylate is minimal in hair products so I shouldn’t worry about it. Could you please advise if this is true and if it’s more beneficial to use this shampoo provided it is sulfate free.

    Thank you!

      #1 Safe for pregnancy and nursing
      #2 My info on hair products is here: Hair products to worry about
      Basically, lots of OBs say not to worry about hair products at all, I think mostly to make their lives easier. But shampoo isn’t really used any differently than a face cleanser (which we screen the ingredients of) and it’s actually more likely to leave some ingredients behind on the hair/scalp to get the advertised benefits. So I would avoid the shampoo with salicylate, but some physicians would say that’s overly conservative. It’s kind of up to you. Re: more beneficial to use that shampoo as it’s sulfate free, I doubt it. In theory it’s not a harsh on the hair, but that’s not as much of a concern now as it was about 20 years ago, when shampoos were much harsher. The Intensive Repair shampoo won’t be harsh, I would start using that one personally. 🙂

            I think this is safe for pregnancy and nursing

            I’ve never heard that benzyl benzoate is “prohibited” under age 2 (Note, I’m double board certified in pediatrics…) You can pretty much find info out there about avoiding everything possible, much of which isn’t based on much. It’s not considered an ingredient to avoid by the medical community for kids or pregnancy. My list of ingredients that I screen out is very conservative and it’s here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

    Hi, I noticed Loccitane cherry blossom bath & shower gel were placed at both safe for pregnancy and not safe for pregnancy. Hence it’s under which category?
