Pregnancy Safe Products from Pacifica

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 Pacifica as of 9/20/2020. 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 Pacifica 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.

        Hi Christine!
        Per Pacifica’s website, here is the ingredient list for that product (I’d also be interested to know if this cream is pregnancy safe). Thanks so much for all that you do!
        Ingredients:
        aqua, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, glycerin (vegetable) ethylhexyl palmitate, acetyl hexapeptide-3, glyceryl stearate, cetyl alcohol, palmitoyl tripeptide-3, butyrospermum parkii (shea) nut oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, laminaria hyperborea (kelp) extract, tocopherol acetate (vitamin E), magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, hyaluronic acid, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, panthenol (vitamin B5), allantoin, xanthan gum, sodium alginate, avena sativa (oat) beta glucan, cocos nucifera (coconut) water, iris pallida (sweet iris) leaf cell extract, rosa damascena (damascus rose) leaf cell extract, cichorium intybus (chicory) root oligosaccharides, caesalpinia spinosa gum, cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, pelargonium (geranium) oil.

          The only thing of concern that I see is the cell extracts. Brands aren’t consistent in how they label stem cells in products, so I would look on the page and marketing write ups to see if they make mention of them. I’m just not fully comfortable saying they are pregnancy safe. My concerns are discussed in this post: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

          Otherwise, all of the other ingredients look pregnancy and nursing safe.
