Pregnancy Safe Drugstore Lipbalms

Pregnancy Safe Drugstore Lipbalms

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 pregnancy safe lip products. 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 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.

Please refer to the brand posts for the most up to date information on each product.

  40. 9.11.20

    Hello doctor, in past few days since I found out pregnancy, I have checked all my cosmetics (about or more than 100), and throw away many, and kept many. Many people tell me vaseline, ingredient is major petroleum jelly, is totally safe during pregnancy, however, this website says the petroleum jelly isn’t safe. It looks like a commercial website without any proof or expertise, what do you think? I got a jar of pure petroleum jelly from Dollarama last week, which is made from India, should I use it? Or it’s not safe as this website says?

    • 9.11.20
      Christine said:

      The main issue most people have is that it’s derived from crude oil basically, and they feel that’s “not natural” (though it comes out of the ground) and that alone is enough to make it horrible. We don’t have any evidence that it isn’t safe, similar to mineral oil which is in the same boat. I don’t think you need to worry about using it at all, while pregnant, nursing or otherwise. Having said that, if it makes you at all nervous, I just wouldn’t use it. I don’t think it’s worth losing sleep over skincare, there’s enough other things in the world right now that cause anxiety and skincare shouldn’t be one of them!
