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. 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 products from Exuviance as of 8/11/2020. 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.

FYI, when I was reviewing products on Exuviance’s site, I noticed a lot of them mention a previous name. I think a lot of products were recently renamed. You’ll need to poke around a lot to find an old favorite, but I’ve reviewed their entire US site!

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.

      This has gluconolactone, a retinoid, licorice root. Avoid in pregnancy and in nursing if you’re conservative due to the retinoid

    I didn’t see this exact one on the list, and I tried to look to see if it was renamed: hydrating eye complex. Is this safe for pregnancy?
