Pregnancy Safe Body Washes

Pregnancy Safe Body Washes

While I’ve posted a lot about pregnancy safe beauty products including skin care and makeup, I haven’t done a lot on beauty staples such as body wash and deodorant. You will find some options within the brand lists in my list of pregnancy and nursing friendly brands, but today I wanted to share a list of drugstore body washes that are pregnancy and nursing safe!

As a reminder, you can learn more in my pregnancy beauty guide, and learn more about what ingredients to avoid while pregnant.

This list is not an exhaustive list of pregnancy safe body washes. This is a list of products that should be easily found or ordered online, hopefully they will make your life easier!

    I came on this website a month ago to find pregnancy safe products. I’ve been using loocatine almond body wash for weeks now and when googling around today on oils to avoid, it came up bergamot and rosemary because they can cause misscarriage. Why do you tell women to use something that can cause a miscarriage? I hope to god that everything is ok after using it for weeks.

      Those warnings are NOT accepted by the general medical community based upon current research. They aren’t even recommended to avoid ingesting, which is a much higher level of exposure than topical use.

        Oh god it made me freak out. If you google it, it comes up as a warning and that it could cause contractions etc. Same with castor oil! Is castor oil ok to use topical as an ingredient in a beauty product? Thank you for replying. Google is a dangerous place… Thank you!

    Hi there!

    I have two skin products that I would appreciate you reviewing and confirming to be pregnancy safe.

    Nivea Cocoa Butter Lotion (I know you approved the other Nivea firming lotion, but I understand one ingredient that’s on the no-go list is fragrance, yet these products have fragrance listed – does that matter?):
    Water, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Cetearyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Mineral Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Trisodium EDTA

    The other is Dove soap (white) – again on the fragrance concern:
    Ingredients. Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Sodium Tallowate Or Sodium Palmitate, Lauric Acid, Sodium Isethionate, Water, Sodium Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoate Or Sodium Palm Kernelate, Fragrance, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium Edta, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

    Thanks!

    Hi!

    I saw you had Dr. Bronner Castile liquid soap in the Rose scent, however are all their scents ok to use while pregnant or breastfeeding? I was wanting to get their hemp almond body wash and saw somewhere online that hemp oil should be avoided but I believe all their products for body wash have hemp in there.

    Water, Organic Coconut Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide**, Organic Palm Kernel Oil*, Organic Olive Oil*, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Natural Almond Fragrance, Citric Acid, Tocopherol. *Certified Fair Trade Ingredients **None Remains After Saponifying Oils Into Soap & Glycerin.

      15mins said:

      All of the scents are different, I can’t make a blanket statement about safety.

      Personally, I would avoid Hemp (note, I’m likely overly cautious, but with a decision like a body wash it’s just easy to pick a different one)

      Here’s my hemp blurb:
      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.

        Maria said:

        As a follow up question-If you would avoid Hemp products, then why did you recommend any of Dr. Bronner’s soaps including the Rose Pure castile soap?

        Thank you!

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for this site! I’m curious about Dr. Bronner’s, more specifically the Unscented Baby Castille Soap. In other parts of the site, you recommend not using some products due to hemp oil, but two Dr. Bronner’s soaps were approved. If I’m using this as my hand soap, dish soap, cleaner, etc, is it overboard?

    Hi! I see you’ve included an extensive list of pregnancy safe body washes but curious about bar soap. I use Dove’s basic beauty bar (ingredients below). Would this be safe? Or do you have other bar soaps that you’d recommend? Your website has been super helpful! Thanks for all the hard work to take the guessing game out of buying clean products! Hope you’re doing OK in the current environment!

    Ingredients:

    Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Lauric Acid, Sodium Tallowate or/ou Sodium Palmitate, Aqua, Sodium Isethionate, Sodium Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoate or/ou Sodium Palm Kernelate, Parfum, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

      Unfortunately this product has gluconolactone, so ok for nursing but not pregnancy.

      It’s odd how they’ll completely reformulate some products for different areas of the world! I live in the US, and the asian market is very different. My aunt and uncle lived in Singapore for a long time when I was growing up, and my aunt didn’t like toothpaste and a few other products in Singapore. So every summer when she came back to the US she would bring an extra suitcase and stock up on so many silly things! I thought she was nuts, but I can understand it more now.

        I was a bit upset with Puracy because I found it from website and said is safe to use for pregnant woman (also has asked from Puracy seller in Singapore & they clarified that its safe to use for pregnancy). ☹️
