Pregnancy Safe Foundation

Pregnancy friendly foundations

Now that my list of pregnancy safe skin care products has grown so large, most of the questions I’ve been getting actually are about pregnancy safe makeup. I’ve shared a list of pregnancy safe foundation primers, today is the much awaited list of pregnancy safe foundations!

Note that for this list I have only included products that I can find a full list of ingredients. Makeup ingredient lists are very difficult to locate. If you want to ask about a specific product, you need to provide a list of ingredients, I will not comment on safety without a list of ingredients. I will also add a list of products that are not safe here (rather than leaving them off the list like I usually do, then you’ll know if I’ve reviewed a product’s ingredient list.

Read this before commenting to ask about your product

If you would like to ask if something is pregnancy safe please provide the product name, an ingredient list and limit yourself to a 2 products. I have readers asking about 20 products sometimes, and as much as I want to help, I simply don’t have enough hours in the day to check so many products. When you comment, please search the comments for your product first (command F will let you search for the name with most browsers) in the comments, I have already answered safety for hundreds of products.

Don’t forget to check out the other articles in my Pregnancy and Nursing Skin Care Guide! Please only ask about foundations on this post, you can check other product types on these other posts. I have been getting questions here for the products that are already in these posts. I will no longer answer questions about products on the wrong product type post, it spreads the information out and is a waste of everyone’s time.

    What are your thoughts on Butylene glycol? I currently use Urban Decays Naked Foundation which is an approved one on your list so I was so excited! But another article I read, states to stay away from Butylene glycol so I was curious on your thoughts? I loved my Naked foundation but just want to make sure it’s safe! Thanks! I was also curious if you had done any research on the Burt’s Bees foundation? Obviously the one without salicylic acid.

      I can’t find anything really that says to stay away from butylene glycol and I don’t know any physicians that advise to avoid it, but I get asked a lot because of that website. I think it’s fine.

      The Goodness Glows Full Coverage Liquid Makeup is fine, I’ll add it to the list!

      Both of those products are safe. I wouldn’t use huge amounts of any essential oil while pregnant, but small amounts of most (really as extracts) in products are fine. If you’re nervous I would talk to your OB about it.

    Hello, I’ve had sensitive rosacea skin for years and found Jane Iredale makeup incredible… but now that I’m pregnant I have to think about the baby. This website is extremely helpful for that!

    Unfortunately I think the foundation I use – Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage BB Cream – has a hydroxy acid in it (after reading your other posts) is polyhydroxystearic acid a hydroxy acid?

    My other product is this Jane Iredale Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder. Is it Ok in terms of ingredients?

    Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Boron Nitride, Zinc Oxide (Ci 77947), Zinc Stearate, Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Plankton Extract, Algae Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract. [+/- (May Contain) Iron Oxides (Ci 77489, Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Ultramarines (Ci 77007), Chromium Oxide Greens (Ci 77288)]

    Thankyou for such a great resource

      polyhydroxystearic acid isn’t a hydroxy acid, and you don’t need to worry about powders at all 🙂 I just looked at the full BB Cream list of ingredients and that looks fine to me

      Rosemary is ok, you’d absorb much more when you eat Rosemary and we don’t advise not eating rosemary.
      I think this foundation looks fine
