Pregnancy Safe Products from Chantecaille

Which products from Chantecaille are safe to use during pregnancy?

Pregnancy safe skincare 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 every pregnancy safe skincare product from Chantecaille as of 4/1/2019. 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.

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 Chantecaille 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.

      You don’t need to worry about mascaras. There’s a link to learn more about which makeup you need to worry about up in the post, the paragraph should be bolded.

        Thank you! I just wasn’t sure since it had lash serum in it!

        • 9.21.20
          Christine said:

          It’s kind of like conditioner that way, if that helps 🙂 Regardless, it’s ok and no reason to worry!

    First off, your index for pregnancy safe products has been a godsend! Thank you.

    Help me understand why the Chantecaille Rice and Geranium Foaming cleanser is not ok for nursing if licorice root is the only offender. Many products on your nursing list contain that ingredient. Thank you!

      Christine said:

      It’s under the wrong spot. When I make these lists I do it in HTML and sometimes things get muddled. I paste in the product name in the right alphabetical spot, immediately type in the ingredients I saw that were an issue (before I forget) and then come back and put the html for the link in. But since the other products are already there, it’s a lot of html and sometimes I think I’m in one section and i’m in the wrong spot. (Another reason I immediately type in the ingredients) Sorry about that!

        Does the Chantecaille Rice and Geranium Foaming cleanser still have licorice root or is is disguised under a different name?

        • 1.4.21
          Christine said:

          Yes, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate
