Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Rodial

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Rodial

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 Rodial as of 3/8/2020. 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, etc.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing

Note I’m including products with retinoids here, as those are a bit iffy. It depends on how conservative you want to be while nursing (still absolutely contraindicated while pregnant). Refer to my post on ingredients to avoid while nursing for more discussion.

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.

CBD Drops: CBD
Retinol 10% Booster Drops: Retinoid, Bakuchiol
Snake Bubble Masks: Retinoid

The products below have a new/novel ingredient for brightening the skin/treating hyperpigmentation (Dimethylmethoxy Chromanyl Palmitate). It works via a very similar mechanism to hydroquinone, which is recommended for avoidance in both pregnancy and nursing. I can not find any safety date for this ingredient. I would likely avoid it during pregnancy and nursing for this reason, but the decision is up to you. I have also mentioned additional ingredients of concern below.
Pink Diamond Instant Lifting Serum
Pink Diamond Magic Gel
Pink Diamond Magic Night Gel: Retinoid

    I recently bought Venofye Products, was thinking about getting pregnant soon, so wasn’t sure whether to keep the package sealed till after my pregnancy. The main theme in the product line is Bee Venom. Its the last on the list of ingredients though, so I was wondering if it would be safe in small amounts?

    The Cleanser ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl, Glycinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-150 Distearate, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Citric Acid, Sodium Cocoyl Amino Acids, 1,2-Hexanediol, Potassium Olivoyl/Lauroyl Wheat Amino Acid, Carbomer, Fragrance (Parfum), Fructose, Bee Venom

    The Facial Peel : Aqua, Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Cocotrimonium Chloride, Hydroxyacetophenone, Phenoxyethanol, 1,2 Hexanediol, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Bee Venom

    I am also trying the red Led wand, I was reading about LED treatments being safe during pregnancy, but wanted your opinion on it..
    Thanks!

      There’s no information about bee venom, but I would have similar concerns to the snail secretion, you can read my thoughts on that here:
      skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      Otherwise, bot products look ok. But it’s up to you re: Bee Venom.

      LED and lasers should be avoided during pregnancy. The thought is that you are actually damaging skin and releasing cytokines and such, the effects aren’t always just local.

        Thanks! The powder I’m using now is Too Faced It’s Bananas and it has salicylic acid which is why I thought it to be unsafe.

          Christine said:

          There’s info in that post about powders and why you don’t need to worry about the ingredients in them. But if you’re going to worry about it too much, it’s not worth it to use a powder. I would just move to something else then.
