        Hi Christine, love your site and research!

        I was quite bothered that this sunscreen had salicylate and is positioned as pregnancy safe by Hatch. I’ve recently emailed them, in which they shared the following responses – I’m still confused by their thought process? Responses pasted below.

        I did reach out to our beauty development team to address your concerns with the tridecyl salicylate. At HATCH, we base all of our formulations around a product development blacklist that has been reviewed by dermatologists, regulatory experts, lactation consultants, and pregnancy experts in the space. Our team has confirmed that tridecyl salicylate is not a harmful chemical when applied topically. They confirmed that the percentage of tridecyl salicylate used to formulate our sunscreen is less than 5%.

        All mineral sunscreens contain 2 types of ingredients: active and inactive. In both our face and body formulas, the active ingredient is zinc oxide at 12%. The active ingredients are those that keep you safe from harmful UVA and UVB rays. The inactive ingredients (where you find water, tridecyl salicylate, and other ingredients) are only there to preserve and hold formulas together, they do not cause the product to be a chemical sunscreen.

        All of our formulas and claims are submitted and must pass FDA regulations in order for us to sell the products.

          The “active” and “inactive” ingredient terms just refer to whether the FDA considers that ingredient to be the ingredient doing the “drug” job, which in this case is acting as a sunscreen. The “inactive’ ingredients are still there and doing their thing. The Salicylate still is a salicylate, it doesn’t matter where they put it (and the % doesn’t matter by the way), it’s still in there and it isn’t a straightforward thing in the medical community that it’s safe topically in pregnancy, which is why I screen it out. The FDA doesn’t say anything about pregnancy safety either way.

          These might help:
          Why does X Brand say this product is safe but you don’t think it is safe? (or Vice Versa)
          But what about this % of an ingredient?

    I was wondering if some Of the products in the pregnancy safe lines such as rosemary leaf extract ( in hatch belly oil) or centella asiatica ( found in nearly all stretch mark
    Products for pregnancy) are safe to use? When reading up on those ingredients they say that rosemary oil can induce uterine contractions and that centella asiatica has vitamin a in it and I know that’s off limits in pregnancy. Please help.

      You can pretty much find info out there about avoiding everything possible, much of which isn’t based on much. It’s not considered an ingredient to avoid by the medical community. My list of ingredients that I screen out is very conservative and it’s here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy. Rosemary for example you can still eat, which is a much bigger exposure than topical ever would be.
