Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Elemis

What products from Elemis are pregnancy safe?

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 Elemis as of 7/23/2021 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.

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 Elemis 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.

Note, UK and US versions of Elemis products are the same. US orders actually ship from the UK.

Several stores (esp DermStore) use their own names for the Elemis products. Please look at the packaging picture on those sites and then search for your product here, it’s listed by what Elemis calls the product. One exception is the Pro-Collagen Definition and Pro-Definition lines. For some reason the Collagen is dropped on other retailers. I’ve named them Pro-Collagen Definition, which is consistent with Elemis’s website.

    Hi!!
    First if all: THANK YOU X
    Next…why is the dynamic resurfacing facial wash okay during pregnancy; but, rest of the range of dynamic resurfacing is not? Is that a typo?
    Thank you!!

      No, it isn’t a typo. Each product has the ingredient of concern noted, I’ve specifically placed each product under what I think they are safe for. It isn’t unusual to have different products of the same line be safe while others are not.

    Hello, is it possible for you to review the RE9 skincare line by Arbonne? I eat their protein powder and some other products and would like to try their skincare. I don’t see any major issues with it but I’d love a second set of eyes on it. Thank you!!

    Hello! I have a few questions on products. Elemis claims all their FACE products are now safe for pregnancy and nursing moms. One product I use I do not see on here, and the other is on the “not safe” list, but I am not seeing the ingredient listed. I am curious if they may have changed their formula since last year or if I am missing something? They are:

    -Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask -the only ingredients I can find on their site is plant derived hyaluronic acid, padding pavonica, and watermelon snow algae.
    -Superfood Facial Oil- broccoli oil, flax seed oil, daikon radish seed extract, cucumber oil, macadamia seed oil, rice bran oil, poppy seed oil, Rosehips fruit oil, meadow foam set oil, squalean

    For both I am unable to find on their site the complete ingredient breakdown lists. The internet lists this, but none seem to be consistent, therefore I do not know whether to trust them or not 🙂 Any help is appreciated!

    • 4.30.20
      15mins said:

      This is the list for the eye mask (via Revolve, which is a retailer I trust):
      Aqua/Water/Eau, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Maltodextrin, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Glycerin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Lespedeza Capitata Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Lactic Acid, Serine, Sodium Lactate, Sorbitol, Urea, Rhizobian Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Padina Pavonica Thallus Extract, Chlorphenesin, Plankton Extract, Chlorella Vulgaris Extract, Sodium Chloride, Coenochloris Signiensis Extract, Lecithin, Tocopherol, Allantoin.

      It looks fine for pregnancy and nursing

      The oil (also via Revolve):
      Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Flax) Seed Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Papaver Somniferum (Poppy) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Squalane, Raphanus Sativus (Radish) Seed Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Oil, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Fragrance (Parfum), Limonene, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Sweet Orange) Peel Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Cymbopogon Martini (Palmarosa) Oil, Geraniol, Linalool, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Benzyl Benzoate, Farnesol, Citral, Benzyl Salicylate, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract.

      this has a salicylate and I would avoid it in pregnancy, but it’s ok for nursing.

      There isn’t a universally accepted list of safe vs unsafe ingredients for pregnancy, but salicylates are pretty universally accepted as an ingredient to avoid. More discussion on that here: pregnancy beauty FAQ

      I hope that helps!

    Hi Doctor!
    First of all, THANKS for your website, it’s being a tremendous help in figuring out what’s safe to use and what isn’t, rather than having to check every single product’s ingredients and still be unsure since some are not easily spotted.
    In the few days I’ve been reading you I’ve had to put aside most of my lipbalms and the only one I have left is Elemis but not listed here, could you please let me know if safe?

    Hi Dr., thank you for all that you do on this site, it has helped me so much! I just bought the Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil which is listed here as safe, but then I noticed it says on the box “Do not use when pregnant”. I’m wondering if this is just a marketing gimmick to get you to buy multiple products (I also have the Japanese Camellia Body Oil and that one is heavily marketed toward pregnancy, just wanted to add another scent to the mix!) Or is there any other reason besides the ingredients that I should be worried about using it?

    I did read the ingredients on the specific package I have, and they exactly match what someone else posted here a few months ago (I am just copy-pasting from that comment so it’s front and center here, but nothing has changed). Thank you so much!

      Ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to glycolic acid
      It’s worth noting (because someone will see this and freak out later) that this list is NOT for the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads, which are pregnancy and nursing safe. This is a list for the Multi Active Resurfacing Facial Pads, which I think are basically discontinued and only available at a few retailers worldwide. They don’t appear on the Elemis UK/US website.
