Pregnancy Safe Facial Sunscreens, BB and CC Creams

Pregnancy Safe Facial Sunscreens, BB and CC Creams

My pregnancy safe makeup and beauty guide has become very popular, and readers have been asking a lot of questions about pregnancy safety! One of the major issues I’ve been having in discussing pregnancy safe skincare is sunscreen. I feel like I tell everyone that emails me that their sunscreen is not safe, and they need to find a pregnancy safe sunscreen, and I’m sorry but I don’t have one to recommend. All of the sunscreens I used when I was pregnant have been reformulated and I can no longer recommend them.

I do not recommend any chemical sunscreens (if you’re not sure what those are, check out my sunscreen guide for more information) as those are actually absorbed by the skin, they’ve even been picked up in urine tests! While many of these ingredients are likely safe, due to ethical reasons it is highly unlikely that clinical trials will ever be completed to prove the safety of these ingredients.

The sunscreens included on this list are all physical sunscreens, with the active ingredient Zinc Oxide, and usually (but not always, check individual products to be sure) Titanium Dioxide as well. This means that all of these products are full spectrum UV coverage.



There’s also a list of pregnancy safe body sunscreens. Here is a post on daily moisturizers with SPF, those are much harder to fine in pregnancy safe versions. There are also a lot of sunscreens included in the big list of pregnancy safe skincare.

Ask about Product Safety

Note I have closed the comments here as I had many questions about products that are already on the site. If your product isn’t here, please check the list of pregnancy safe beauty brands. Make sure you look for variations on your product’s name, frequently brands will rename a product very slightly. You can ask about your product on the brand specific page or the list of brands if your brand is not included.

Note: The most up to date product information is always found on brand specific pages. I update those more frequently than round up posts like this one.

Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing

Note I’m including products with retinoids here, as those are a bit iffy. It depends on how conservative you want to be while nursing (still absolutely contraindicated while pregnant). Refer to my post on ingredients to avoid while nursing for more discussion.

        I used Cerave AM lotion all throughout my pregnancy. Eek! What are the risks? Is there anything in particular I should be concerned about or just lesson learned for the next one?

        And, now that I’m nursing (and no longer pregnanat)—any reason to switch to a different AM moisturizer or is the Cerave AM safe?

      I’ve got both of those brands on my list to do. I’m a bit worried about the Origins ingredients as they’re owned by Estee Lauder, and they make the ingredients hard to find. I did Clinique recently (also owned by EL) and had a reader point out that the ingredients I had looked at on the Sephora website were incomplete and in a bad way! I had to pull the entire list from the post. I’m hoping that origins is more accurate, but…. we’ll see!

          15mins said:

          Well, it does have some ingredients that I would avoid in pregnancy such as the sunscreens, the salicylate and licorice root extract. A lot of those are more theoretical risks (without proven problems, we just haven’t proven that they’re safe). The worst ingredient while pregnant (retinoid) isn’t in this one. I think a lot of women don’t think about their makeup and skincare at all. There’s enough other things to worry about and lose sleep over (which let’s face it, is hard to get much of in the 3rd trimester), so i wouldn’t stress about it. Just put it aside to use after delivery, and use this as an excuse to try something new for fall. 🙂

    Thank you for all of your lists of safe products. Throughout my pregnancy and nursing years, I have used yours lists for products. My skin is dry and I’m having trouble finding a good night cream in my 40s while nursing. I want to try the Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore because I’ve tried so many night creams on your list and have yet to purchase one that is a good fit for my dry skin. In addition, I figured I’d also pick us a safe moisturizer, but the Skinceuticals one you have listed here is for oily skin. My question is this: is the moisturizer Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 (it is formulated for dry skin as well as others)safe?

      The Triple Lipid Restore is fine! My skin is getting drier too and I’ve been planning on writing more about dry skin, anti-aging in dry skin, etc. I just haven’t gotten there yet. Let me know if you like this one, it looks really good!

      That sunscreen has chemical sunscreens, so I wouldn’t consider it to be a safe for pregnancy. I hope that helps!

      I’m not recommending any of the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular products based upon the company’s description of apple stem cells penetrating down into the skin and proliferating. I don’t think they could really do that, I’ve talked to a few dermatologists about it and that doesn’t describe how apple stem cells would work in their minds at all, but with the brand saying those things I would not use any of the products with this line while pregnant.

      The ingredients of the supergoop are ok, but note that you don’t need to worry about powders (more info in my pregnancy safe makeup post), but also you should know that in order to get SPF 45 you’ll need about 1/3 of that entire container on your face…. I would NOT rely on that product to get your SPF, but as a mid-day touchup it’s probably ok.

      The Farmacy product is fine.

    Hello,

    I saw someone else post this with an incomplete ingredient list. It’s Neutrogena Sheer Zinc face sunscreen. Is this safe to use? The active ingredient is zinc oxide (21.6%) and these are the rest of the ingredients:

    Water, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Octyldodecyl Citrate Crosspolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Phenyl Trimethicone, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Glycerin, Ethyl Methicone,Cetyl Dimethicone, Silica, Colloidal Oatmeal, Tocopheryl Acetate, Chrysanthemum Parthenium (Feverfew) Flower/Leaf/Stem Juice, Glyceryl Behenate, Phenethyl Alcohol, Caprylyl Glycol, Cetyl Dimethicone/Bis-Vinyldimethicone Crosspolymer, Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin

    If it’s not safe would you mind pointing out which ingredient so I know for future reference? Thank you very much for this and ALL your lists!

    Hi, nice to see your helpful website, but I need your help too about the sunscreen i used. It’s from Think Baby spf 50.
    Is it safe for pregnancy?

    Here i put the ingredients:

    Purified water (0), aloe barbadensis leaf juice extract (0), capric caprylic triglycerides (0), sorbitan stearate (coconut based) (1), methyl abietate (pine wood resin) (0), vegetable glycerin (0), cetyl dimethicone (0), hydrogenated castor oil (0), magnesium sulfate (epsom salt) (0), sunflower oil (0), jojoba oil (0), ascorbic acid (vitamin C) (0), tocopherols (vitamin E) (1), olive oil (0), raspberry seed oil (0), cranberry seed oil (0), hyaluronic acid (made from vegetable) (0), glucose oxidase & lactoperoxidate (0), papaya (0).

    I’m afraid when I read magnesium sulfate, hyaluronic acid, cetyl dimethicone, capric caprylic triglycerides.

    Because I never heard it before

    I really need your help, is it really safe for pregnancy?
    Thank you so much

    • 6.16.18
      15mins said:

      This one is fine. Magnesium sulfate is just a salt of magnesium, hyaluronic acid isn’t even an acid, it is a large molecule that can’t penetrate down into the skin (though your skin makes it also so it is found in the skin) and attracts and holds on to water, so it is a moisturizer. The Cetyl dimethicone is a silicone used to help it feel slippery and aid in application, the capric caprylic triglycerides is derived from coconut and glycerin and also moisturizes.

    Hello! I feel like I search high and low for safe cosmetics. It can be discouraging. Thanks for your time. I’m from Canada and so I don’t have as easy as an access to American products. For pregnancy and nursing, what do you think about Burt’s bees BB cream :
    And how do I know even if one ingredient here is not safe ?

    It’s like a whole other language. I’ve tried to familiar myself with certain words to stay away from.but also get lost when it comes to natural and essential oil ingredients because there’s ones to avoid too. I find this a struggle and am happy to have your website as a resource.

    It says key ingredients:
    Medical Ingredients (Light Shade): Titanium Dioxide 5.3% and Zinc Oxide 7.0% Medical Ingredients (Light/Medium Shade): Titanium Dioxide 4.7% and Zinc Oxide 7.0% Medical Ingredients (Medium Shade): Titanium Dioxide 4.7% and Zinc Oxide 7.0% Inactive Ingredients (All Shades): Water, Glycerin, Decyl Oleate, Isoamyl Cocoate, Isoamyl Laurate, Octyldodecanol, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Alcohol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Polyglyceryl-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Stearic Acid, Morinda Citrifolia Fruit Extract, Beeswax, Jojoba Esters, Mica, Iron Oxides, Silica, Sorbitan Stearate, Stearyl Alochol, Behenyl Alcohol, Sodium Carboxymethyl C10-16 alkyl glucoside, lauryl glucoside, magnesium aluminum silicate, xanthan gum, citric acid, isostearic acid, lecithin, polyglyceryl-3 polyricinoleate, polyhydroxystearic acid, sodium phytate, trihydroxystearin, alumina, arachidyl alcohol, sorbic acid, alcohol denat., potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, fragrance, phenoxyethanol.

      The % acceptable really isn’t something the consumer needs to worry about so much, just look at the SPF, check the ingredients to make sure there is full spectrum UV coverage, and look for the term “broad spectrum” which will indicate that there is adequate coverage for most of that spectrum, rather than all being concentrated in part of the UV spectrum.

      Unfortunately this product has a salicylate so I wouldn’t recommend it for pregnancy.

        It’s great, but not for oily skin.
        I think this product is already discontinued tho.
        You should try the vitalumiere aqua, that one is my fav.
        The coverage is so light but it makes your skin glowing naturally.

          I wouldn’t lose sleep over it, I’d just switch to something else. Many of the things we say to avoid have theoretical harm and haven’t been proven to be safe, so we say to avoid them. Most women don’t think about this at all for their entire pregnancy.

    first of all, really thank you for your time to help us to analyze the products! It takes lots of time to read through the ingredients.

    I remember when I search Eye Creams With Retinol in Sephora website, the Fresh black tea eye cream did show up on the list but when I read the ingredients I can’t find retinol. I wonder is retinol also appear in another name? I have checked Tretinoin and Retin A not in the list, perhaps it’s Sephora mistake or they removed from the products?

      I think that may have been an error on Sephora’s part. I don’t see any retinol in there and the descriptions on their site and Fresh don’t mention anything. It definitely wasn’t there when I reviewed the ingredient list. So I’m not sure why it showed up in that search. It’s definitely safe to use during pregnancy, and I don’t see hidden retinol 🙂

They said it was mineral and I could use it on my baby too. In the packaging it doesn’t say it’s mineral but it does say it’s good for babies, children and adults. Could you tell me if it’s safe?

    Ingredients:
    AQUA (WATER) . DIBUTYL ADIPATE . DIETHYLAMINO HYDROXYBENZOYL HEXYL BENZOATE . HOMOSALATE . GLYCERIN . C12-15 ALKYL BENZOATE . ETHYLHEXYL TRIAZONE . TRIDECYL SALICYLATE . DIMETHICONE .

      It isn’t safe for pregnancy. It has snail secretion, salicylates and a retinoid. It’s fine for nursing, and it’s one of my favorite BB Creams.

      The BB Cream has chemical sunscreens so I would avoid it while pregnant, it’s fine for nursing.. Powders you don’t need to worry about. Concealers mostly sit on the surface of the skin, but some likely does get absorbed.

    Hi Christine! Thanks so much for all the helpful information you provide. I’ve been looking for a daytime moisturizer (preferably anti-aging) with sunscreen that’s safe for pregnancy–and I remain a bit confused about what you have posted above. Perricone MD’s Photo Plasma seems to have been discontinued, and Fresh’s Black Tea Age-Delay lotion does in fact contain a chemical sunscreen (I checked the ingredients when I went in to buy it). Are you aware of a daily moisturizer with sunscreen that’s pregnancy-safe? Thanks!

    • 2.2.19
      15mins said:

      Unfortunately I’m at the mercy of the online ingredient lists, and often there are product reformulations (and Photo Plasma was a best seller at Sephora when I made this list). All of the products on this list were purely mineral based at the time I published. I recommend checking my post on pregnancy friendly skincare products, there are a lot of sunscreens in there.

        Sam said:

        I had a similar question as Shar above.

        So there aren’t any pregnancy-safe moisturizers w/sunscreen you know of or would recommend? I am hoping to avoid layering on multiple products. Thank you so much.

        • 2.3.19
          15mins said:

          This post has an entire list of them above, 1 was discontinued and another may have been reformulated (note I haven’t been able to confirm this with the brand, I’m waiting for an email back as the active sunscreen ingredients are no longer listed on line, but they were when I made this list). I’ll make a separate post of just lotions with sunscreen.

But they’re ones you’d need to layer, something that drives me crazy. There’s a good range of price points, a couple of Neutrogenas up to more expensive. Hopefully I’ll have it ready for tomorrow, I’ll come back and post the link here and in the post!

      In the post above I discuss what to look for and link to the sunscreen guide for more information. Only zinc and titanium are physical sunscreens, the rest are all chemical sunscreens and unsafe. Both of these have chemical sunscreens (and licorice root) and are unsafe.

    Hi Christine, I have a quick question that I hope you can answer quickly if you have time…I note that you have Nars sheer glow foundation as a safe for pregnancy foundation. 2 of the ingredients in the foundation are Butylene Glycol and 1-Methylhydantoin. I have read that butyl (Parabens) and hydantoin (formaldehyde) are not safe.
    Are these the same ingredients in the foundation?

    • 3.15.19
      15mins said:

      Neither of those ingredients are parabens, the parabens all say paraben in the name. They’re fine in pregnancy, please refer to my post on ingredients to avoid during pregnancy for the discussion. Hydantoin is not formaldehyde, though it is chemically related. All are safe.

    First of all, thank you so much for the time and effort you’ve put in to this site. It’s become such a valuable resource for me! I was hoping you could clarify something–on this page you have Philosophy renewed hope in a jar skin tint listed as not safe for pregnancy due to the chemical sunscreen, but on the Philosophy product page (https://www.15minutebeauty.com/pregnancy-safe-skincare-philosophy.html), it’s listed under ‘Pregnancy Safe Products from Philosophy’. Has there been an reformulation of the product or is is truly not safe to use in pregnancy?

    Hello Dr. before I ask I just want to thank you so much for all this great information. On my last pregnancy I had to spend all 9 months wearing a horrible drying foundation that I thought was the only safe one I could find and using a highlighter palette as eye shadow. It was a bit depressing. I was using no skin care products because I wasn’t sure what was safe and I was hiding from the sun as I was afraid to use sunscreen. As a result my face aged in 9 months what I hadn’t in a decade. Thank you so much for making it easier to take care of ourselves.

    3. One more question: Is it better to use baby sunscreen, of course mineral preferred, instead of regular mineral sunscreens? Would it be safer for moms too since ingredients are more mild for babies? Or is it not effective enough for adults?

    Thank you for your answers

      Both of these have a salicylate, I would avoid them while pregnant but they’re ok for nursing

      Baby vs “adult” formulation doesn’t really matter for strength, baby sunscreens tend to be stronger with a higher SPF actually because they have very sensitive skin to the sun. occasionally mineral sunscreens will have chemical sunscreens added in to add photostability, baby products don’t usually do that, but otherwise I would just look for a safe formulation that you don’t mind applying.

    I hope it’s ok to post this here. I am wondering if this natural mosquito repellant is safe in very early pregnancy. I live in a country where Dengue is prevalent and so want to protect myself but not sure which mosquito spray to get. I bought this one called babyganics but I’m not sure if it’s safe to use these essential oils on my body in early pregnancy. This is the list of ingredients:

    Soybean oil 95.25%, citronella oil 0.95%, rosemary oil 1.50%, lemongrass oil 0.25%, peppermint oil 0.60%, geranium oil 0.75%, cedarwood oil 0.70%

        I just have aaaaanother question: if something isn’t safe to use during pregnancy, wouldn’t it make sense not to use it at all? Even when I’m not pregnant, would you not suggest a sunscreen that’s free of anything that could be harmful whilst pregnant? And why or why not?

        • 7.2.19
          15mins said:

          It’s pretty restrictive to always be using pregnancy friendly only skincare all the time. For example, the best anti-aging skincare ingredients out there are retinoids. And most sunscreens for the face and in makeup are chemical, not physical. Many women (such as myself) aren’t trying to conceive all the time, so it doesn’t make sense to limit ourselves in that way. If there’s a pregnancy safe product you love using, that’s great! I have a bunch that I use all the time. But I don’t limit myself to pregnancy safe products as I’m not pregnant or trying to get pregnant any time soon.
