Pregnancy Safe Skincare from May Lindstrom

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from May Lindstrom

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 May Lindstrom as of 6/23/2019. 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.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

    Hi! Thank you so much for your very helpful pregnancy safe skincare guidance. I bought May Lindstrom’s The Problem Solver and the ingredient list looks safe (looks like you agree from above). However, the description of the product states: “The Problem Solver delivers antioxidant carotenes, flavonoids, and high concentrations of vitamins A, C, and E.” Where is the Vitamin A coming from and isn’t that an ingredient to avoid (i.e. retinoid)? Here’s the website description: https://www.maylindstrom.com/products/the-problem-solver

      It’s in one of the extracts I think, though none of them pop out as a source of a lot of vitamin A. When it’s included in extracts, oils, etc it’s considered ok, it often isn’t exactly the same as a retinoic acid derivative.

    Thank you so much first for providing such great informations. My question is about the Blue Cocoon. It says it has Myrrh in it and when I have found conflicting evidence that Myrrh isn’t safe (even topically) during pregnancy. Is there a reason this product is marked as safe? Is it because it’s highly diluted? Appreciate your response in advance.

      There isn’t enough evidence that the medical community is concerned about it being topically currently. If it concerns you I would avoid it, simply because I don’t think skincare is worth losing sleep over. 🙂

        Thanks so much for your reply. I am having a hard time finding a clean product that doesn’t have essential oils (specifically, the ones listed to avoid) and/or licorice root. Is there a product you recommend for a facial moisturizer? Thanks so much in advance.

          Did you look at the big list of pregnancy safe brands? Most people have a different idea of what they mean by clean, but there are a lot of options from there. I would likely check out BeautyCounter first 🙂
