Pregnancy Safe Products from Exuviance

Pregnancy Safe Products from Exuviance

Pregnancy safe beauty products 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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Exuviance as of 12/27/2022. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

    I’d love to use the Performance Peel AP25 At-Home Chemical Peel but the box states do not use if pregnant or nursing. From reviewing ingredients and your site, I can’t figure out why. Thoughts? Could it be increased sensitivity?
