Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Neocutis

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Neocutis

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 Neocutis as of 3/25/2020. 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.

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.

    Hello! Thank you for making this website for us!
    Would you consider checking “Frudia” products safety for pregnancy? They are mostly fruit extract but still not so comfortable to use them.

    Thanks for this. Very helpful. Is there an eye cream from this line that is safe to use during pregnancy?

      I’ve reviewed everything I have access to from Neocutis, so unfortunately there isn’t. Sorry!

    Thank you for all of your work here, it’s been so helpful! I can’t find licorice root listed as an ingredient on the Lumiere riche eye cream product box, does this ingredient go by another name that I should be keeping an eye out for in general?

      It is the Glycyrrhetinic Acid
