Pregnancy Safe Products from Pura d’or

Pregnancy Safe Products from Pura d'or

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 Pura d’or as of 1/23/2022. 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.

Castor Oil (at Amazon): I want to comment to say that yes, I know castor oil is one of those things you can take to induce labor. But there’s a difference between drinking a bunch and using a little on your eyelashes (which are dead protein and can’t absorb anything). A small amount topically should be ok.

      For sure avoid in pregnancy due to stem cells, I don’t know what their DHT blocker is but it should likely be avoided in pregnancy and maybe even nursing.

    Can I ask if Rosemary oil is safe for pregnancy

    • 4.12.22
      Christine said:

      Rosemary is fine topically during pregnancy. You need to ingest extremely large amounts to have any effects and physicians don’t advise avoiding in the diet, and it isn’t accepted by the medical community as something you need to avoid topically.

      Shampoo is Ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to willow bark (note, I think this is the same as just original gold label, which is in the list)
      Conditioner is Safe for pregnancy and nursing

    Are you concerned at all about the DHT blockers mentioned in the advanced therapy shampoo on the safe for nursing list? I am nursing, not pregnant. Thank you SO much for being a resource on this, it has been so valuable for me.

      Christine said:

      No. The derms I’ve spoken with actually say they are so little that they can’t even have a local effect when applied topically.
