Pregnancy Safe Products from Averr Aglow

Pregnancy Safe Products from Averr Aglow

 

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 Averr Aglow as of 1/3/2021. 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.

Which hair products do you need to worry about?

Technically, none. Most OBs will tell you not to worry about any hair products. Your hair is a dead protein, and it can not absorb anything. It’s amazing how pregnancy brain can take over and we forget that simple fact!

Personally, I screened products that would sit on my scalp for a few minutes (aka- shampoos, scrubs, etc). My thought process was that those products would be similar to a face wash, even if washed off right away it sits there for a bit. So, on this list you’ll find products that sit on your scalp. This is shampoo, scalp treatments and root styling products. Other styling products should just be on the hair shaft, and if you’re worried about sprays being inhaled, I recommend holding your breath while you spray and then step away a few feet. Conditioner and treatment masques don’t usually touch your scalp, though I have screened a few masques that people sometimes apply up to their roots. If you apply any of these further from the scalp, they’re all safe (even if I screened them as not safe).

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 Averr Aglow 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.

    Have you had a chance to review the Forever Radiant kit products line? If not, can I request please? The do have the sign for pregnancy women’s in these products. But figure I ask your opinion on them. Thank you in advance.

    Hello! I love these products, but have found some issues with a few ingredients. The radiant cleansing nectar is one of my favorite products, but it contains colloidal silver, which is contraindicated in pregnancy. Also, the luminous complexion toner has comfrey in it and that’s strongly contraindicated in pregnancy and nursing. Do you have any information on those ingredients? Thank you!

      Things that I am worried about and screen out are here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      You can find evidence out there to avoid pretty much anything except water (I’m waiting for that one to show up somewhere). What you need to keep in mind is that many websites out there aren’t using evidence from the medical literature, and even if they are, the medical community has to look at how the study is done (in a person/animal or in a petri dish), is that level of the ingredient achievable in an actual person, IV vs oral vs topical use, etc.

    You have listed as safe the radiant cleansing nectar, but it contains colloidal silver. I’ve searched your website for your views on colloidal silver and can’t find anything. I was going to switch to the other cleanser they offer but you have that as having a no-no ingredient. Now I’m not sure what to use. I’m about to start ivf after several losses, so I want to be careful, but not unnecessarily remove products from use.

      Topical colloidal silver is considered fine, though I admit that guy who made himself turn into a smurf by ingesting a huge amount every day is a bit worrisome. If you’re worried then I wouldn’t use that product, but if I was concerned about an ingredient enough, then I wouldn’t say it’s ok on the site. If that makes sense.

        Thanks! Since I couldn’t find it called out on your site, but I know it’s been rearranged recently, I wanted to get confirmation. If there is a page on it that I missed, please direct me to it as I’d love to learn more. I love being able to cleanse my acne prone face without having to make a mess at the sink every morning, so I’ll be happy to not have to drop this product.

        Hello, I am also curious about the topical use of colloidal silver during pregnancy. I am a bit confused on your position, as I saw another comment from 2018 by you on a different post that says, “Honestly the colloidal silver makes me nervous. It doesn’t have skin care benefits, and doing pubmed searches brings up a bunch of articles only on toxicity.” Has there been newer data released that now makes you comfortable with colloidal silver? Thanks!

          I’ve just talked to more physicians about it, and none of them are worried about it with topical use. I think I’m still just swayed by the guy in Kansas who basically turned himself into a smurf with it, though he was ingesting huge amounts orally.
