Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Perricone MD

Is Perricone MD safe for pregnancy or nursing?

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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Perricone MD as of 1/17/2022. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. 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.

    Hi doctor,
    First, thank you so much for your blog!
    Quick question, I went out and bought the Photo-Brightening Moisturizer SPF 30 before reading your blog. I know your list says chemical sunscreen, but on the box it says titanium dioxide, which I thought was a mineral sunscreen? Any chance you can help? I’m confused. Thank you in advance 🙂 Here’s the full list of ingredients:
    Active Ingredient:
    Titanium Dioxide 4.2%

    Inactive Ingredients:
    Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycerin, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Pentylene Glycol, Ethylhexyl Methoxycrylene, Polyester-8, Polyglyceryl-3 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Benzyl Alcohol, Aluminum Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Diethylhexyl Syringylidenemalonate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Isohexadecane, Bisabolol, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Polysilicone-11, Polysorbate 60, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Benzoate. Potassium Sorbate, Xanthan Gum, Hydrogenated Phosphatidylcholine, Thioctic Acid, Astaxanthin

      The issue here is the Ethylhexyl Methoxycrylene, which is a slight variation of octinoxinate (ehtlyhexyl methoxycinnamate). The tricky thing is that they list the ingredients under active which are currently being used as sunscreens, but sometimes you’ll find chemical sunscreens not listed there, they can also act as photostabilizers and improve the life of products. That’s why it is here. I’ve even found them listed in night serums, the last place you’d think you need a sunscreen. Sorry!

        Just wanted to let you know that in your Pregnancy Safe Daily Moisturizers with SPF post (https://www.15minutebeauty.com/spf-moisturizers-pregnancy-safe.html#comment-15425) Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Photo-Brightening Moisturizer SPF 30 is listed to be safe for pregnancy. However in the post above it is safe for nursing but not for pregnancy due to chemical sunscreens.

        Just wanted to let you know so that you won’t have to answer additional questions about the posts.

        Thanks for your hard work! Your blog has been an amazing resource.

          Ugh…. I’m at the mercy of online ingredient lists, so there must have been a change in listings in between the 2 posts (I think the Perricone was done a couple of months after the daily moisturizer one). And there are now sooooo many different lists for this product! I just looked at Sephora, Dermstore, ULTA and Perricone’s site, they are all different. Which is very rare but annoying too. I’m going to go with the Perricone site’s list, which is with the chemical sunscreen and ok for nursing but not pregnancy, so I fixed the other post. Thank you for noticing that!!

    I was wondering about the Perricone Face Finishing Moisturizer. I noticed you have the Face finishing Moisturizer and Firming Cream listed, the one I have does not include the firming cream. The ingredients are the following:
    Water, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Aleurites Moluccana (Kukui Nut) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polyacrylamide, Polysorbate 60, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Dimethyl MEA (DMAE), C13-14 Isoparaffin, Citric Acid, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C Ester), L-Tyrosine, Parfum (Fragrance), Laureth-7, Hexylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Tocopheryl Acetate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Starch, Thioctic Acid (Alpha Lipoic Acid), Hydroxycitronellal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Benzyl Benzoate, Eugenol

    I went to two different sites and they have different ingredients listed for this product.

    Thank you.

      Isn’t it amazing how brands name things so similarly even though they are just slightly different? This one looks ok to me, hopefully the ingredients match up to what the product actually is

    APie said:

    Hi! Thanks for this list its amazing. I have a question about Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Photo Brightening Moisturizer. Up above you say it is not safe because of a chemical sunscreen. I have a jar and it says the active ingredient is Titanium Dioxide. I thought that was considered a safe sun screen during pregnancy. It’s the same as my Bare Minerals foundation which is listed as safe. Is there something else in the product not listed as active?? Thanks!

    • 9.1.19
      15mins said:

      Brands don’t always list every sunscreen under “active” if they aren’t using that ingredient to achieve the proper SPF value. In this case it is the Ethylhexyl Methoxycrylene, which is one of the most commonly used ingredients for this. It will photostabilize the product for a longer shelf life, but that’s not helpful if you’re trying to avoid all chemical sunscreens.

    This blog is an amazing service to all women! Thank you!! I use the PRE:EMPT series exfoliating pore refiner daily and I was wondering why it is included on the not-safe list? What are the risks? Thank you!!
    Also I didn’t see PTR’s Peptide 21 on your PTR list. Is that safe for pregnancy? Thank you so much!!

      15mins said:

      Do you have an ingredient list for Peptide 21? It likely wasn’t on the website I reviewed.
      The exfoliating pore refiner has a salicylate, it’s on the list below under safe for nursing but not pregnancy.

      This has the CBD, cannabidiol and licorice root. Definitely avoid in pregnancy
      Here’s my little blurb about the cannabis related ingredients. That’s up to you, but I typically recommend avoiding in pregnancy and nursing as there are unknown issues and many alternative products:
      There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well.
      Note that in theory Hemp and CBD do not have THC in them, it’s breed out of the plant is the official status. However, depending upon how it was processed many CBD oils will test positive for THC. But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.

      I think this list was cut off. I know the last ingredient is phenoxyethanol, but is there anything after that?

        This is the body treatment. According to their website this was listed in their ingredients.

        Ingredients
        GROWTH FACTOR PEPTIDE: Visibly Firms Skin

        Inspired by naturally-occurring epidermal growth factor, critical for creating firmer-looking skin, our peptide fragment visibly corrects tone and texture, improving the appearance of thin, weakened skin. It works alongside skin’s natural functions for visibly youthful-looking skin.

        MICRO HYALURONIC ACID (HA): Combats Crepiness

        A miniaturized version of hyaluronic acid, micro-hyaluronic acid smooths thin, crepey skin by providing deep, nourishing hydration. This small, easily absorbed molecule helps to replenish skin’s moisture barrier, which naturally weakens over time.

        RETINOL: Exfoliate for Accelerated Regeneration

        Ultra-powerful, non-prescription vitamin A derivative replenishes the look of thin, collagen-depleted skin by helping to accelerate skin renewal and exfoliating away uneven tone and age spots. It can help create the appearance of thicker skin by working alongside skin’s natural skin cell regeneration process.

        Ingredients:

        Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycerin, Isopropyl Myristate, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Stearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Metabisulfite, Ethylhexylglycerin, Retinol, Carnosine, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Lecithin, Heptapeptide-7, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide, Polysorbate 20, Propanediol, Phenoxyethano

        Thank you 🙏🏽

          It seems like it is missing things like preservatives, so I’m not sure it’s really there or not. But regardless, it does have a retinoid and should be avoided in pregnancy and nursing
