Pregnancy Safe Products from MDSolarSciences

Pregnancy Safe Products from MDSolarSciences

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 MDSolarSciences 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.

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.

    Thank you for this site. It’s so infuriating when trying to find safe products and lists like this https://www.bestproducts.com/parenting/maternity/g39559789/best-pregnancy-safe-sunscreens/ pop up as “from a dermatologist” and I have to second guess just to come here and you’ve listed them as not safe (AND WHY with the ingredients). Thank you!

      Sadly, many dermatologists do NOT get training in pregnancy/nursing safety. As a pediatrician, I did. Most OBs do as well. I’ve seen derms who even say retinoids are safe. There are some that have taught themselves about it, but sadly that isn’t all of them.

        You stated the mineral creme spf 50 was not safe during pregnancy but this is a mineral sunscreen, which of the ingredients makes it unsafe?

          Every product has the problem ingredient noted. For that product there’s a salicylate in the formulation.
