Pregnancy Safe Products from The Organic Pharmacy

Pregnancy Safe Products from The Organic Pharmacy

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 The Organic Pharmacy as of 8/8/2020. 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.

Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, brow products, etc. I do not review these products.

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 The Organic Pharmacy 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.

      I screened this brand with the ingredients on DermStore, as they were not on the brand’s website when I checked. Per DermStore these are the ingredients:
      Aloe (Aloe Barbadensis)*, Squalane (Vegetable), Glycerin (vegetable)*, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Sodium Lactate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Rose Geranium (Perlagonium Graveolens)*, Parfum (Fragrance), Sucrose Polystearate, Benzyl Alcohol, Magnesium Sulfate, Aqua (Water), Polyglyceryl-3 Ricinoleate, Sunflower Oil (Helianthus Annus), Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Sorbic Acid, Citronellol, Eugenol, Geraniol, Linalool.

      Note, there isn’t salicylic acid (and it’s also spelled wrong in the brand’s list?) I’m a bit confused. I would check my actual packaging.

        Many thanks for the great help!

        It would be helpful and you would not have to receive requested to review the same products if after your review you would add them to your initial list.

        Sometimes the comments are hundreds and is not easy to check them all.

        Just an idea..

          Christine said:

          I do not add a product to my list unless I have myself seen the ingredient list from what I consider a legit source, as there are websites and retailers out there with incorrect lists, and these lists also vary by country. Many of the comments on this page in particular are from outside the US. Stating a product is safe within the US based on a Singapore ingredient list is not an option for me, you’re in Germany and you have products not available here in the US and they are likely to be different than my versions. I’m fine with answering about a list if a reader considers that list to be legit, but I’m not putting it in my list. I get many rude comments about things like that, if I have a slightly different list than the product someone has, even if it is due to a product change or being from a different country, I get emails and comments attacking me. Thanks though.

          It’s much easier to do a command-F and search for keywords from your product name rather than manually checking the comments.
