Pregnancy Safe Products from Rodan & Fields

Pregnancy Safe Products from Rodan & Fields

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 Rodan & Fields as of 11/4/2020. 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.

Most of the Redefine line was revamped early November 2020. Note a few product names changed, but not all. Since so many people will still have the old versions, I’ve left my reviews of the old products up, and I have commented on which version is in that category. Please check your product name and version carefully.

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 R&F 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 see that you listed several products that are NOT safe due to Glycolic Acid content. Is this due to the acid itself or the amount? I was under the impression that Glycolic and Lactic Acid were safe in pregnancy. Thanks!
