Pregnancy Safe Foundation

Pregnancy friendly foundations

I’ve shared a list of pregnancy safe foundation primers, today is the much awaited list of pregnancy safe foundations! You might want to check out pregnancy safe concealers as well. Here are pregnancy safe BB and CC Creams, and tinted moisturizers. Finally, pregnancy safe makeup setting sprays.

You can learn more about pregnancy safe makeup, note you do not need to worry about powder foundations.

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 foundation isn’t here, please check the list of pregnancy safe beauty brands. You can ask about your product on the brand specific page or the list of brands if your brand is not included.

    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.

      So, the products I used while pregnant (mostly skincare) have been reformulated or I just don’t plain remember, my youngest is 3 1/2 already. 🙂 Here are the most recent posts I have from my favorites, but I should update this!

    Thank you for all that you do!

    Are the two foundations below safe for pregnancy? I switched to several of Juice Beauty products and thankfully I found your site because it appears that all though they claim the majority of their products are safe for pregnancy it certainly isn’t the case. Super disappointing….

    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)]

    Aqua (Water, Eau), Propylene Glycol, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Water, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Fucus Vesiculosus Extract, Propanediol, Polysorbate 20, Ethylhexylglycerin, Benzophenone-4, Parfum (Fragrance), Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, CI 19140 (Yellow 5), CI 42090 (Blue 1), Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool,

      I can’t comment on vegan products generally or not… They often still include ingredients that you need to avoid.
      Both products are fine

    Hello there. I’ve read all of your pregnancy skincare articles & all those to avoid, but I just wanted to know your thoughts on triethanolamine? I’ve read in several places to avoid this at all costs in pregnancy. Thanks in advance.

    • 7.31.18
      15mins said:

      It is a salicylate salt and is labelled as salicylate in products, so I recommend avoiding it and I screen it out in my product screens. I haven’t found information against using it when it is NOT a salicylate salt, there’s nothing in the medical literature.

  36. 7.31.18
    Nancy said:

    So I should avoid it during pregnancy or not?
    I’m just confused because one the of products I asked you about (Lush’s Sympathy for the skin lotion) had it and you said it was fine, but after reading the label again I remembered that was one of the ingredients I had read up on triethanolamine in my first pregnancy & read to avoid it! Please let me know. Thanks a bunch.

    • 8.1.18
      15mins said:

      If it is listed as a salicylate I would say to avoid it and I would definitely avoid it. The problem is the salicylate version, not non-salicylate versions, so I wouldn’t worry about it if it isn’t listed as a salicylate. Note I see information on this ingredient only on “natural” sites, I can’t find anything in the medical literature and it isn’t listed as an ingredient to avoid by OBs and such, just when it is as a salicylate and then it falls under that category. I hope that makes sense 🙂

      The BB cream is fine. Typically we don’t worry about powders as they sit on the surface of the skin and aren’t absorbed, but this one does have a chemical sunscreen that should be avoided. Up to you if you want to ignore as it is a powder or switch to a different product.

    Hi,

    I bought the Lancome teint idole, however, I am now seeing that it contains 3%octinoxate and am worried as it is not recommended for pregnant women. Any views on it as I am confused.com when it comes to this.

    • 9.4.18
      15mins said:

      Octinoxate is a chemical sunscreen. They haven’t been confirmed to be safe, and with more derms and OBs recommending physical sunscreens only I’ve added the chemical sunscreens to my list of skin care ingredients to avoid while pregnant, but note that they were a very recent addition. Some of the chemical sunscreens are salicylates, which have always been on the list of things to avoid. I would not worry aobut this at all, if you are worried I would switch to a new foundation. But really, it is not worth worrying over.

    Not sure if you share your views on blush and eye shadows. I rarely use them anyways.

    Thank you again.

      I’ve been working on the lip products, but since so many shades of each product have different ingredients…. it’s a huge chore! As for blushes and eye shadows, you don’t need to worry about those as they’re powders and sit on the surface of the skin.

    Hi! Thanks for your list of make up and skin care super helpful! But what do you mean by chemical sunscreen in the foundations? Two of the ones you listed say that/ just wondering what specific chemical.. and why it isn’t safe? I’ve been using a few thru out pregnancy.

    • 9.7.18
      15mins said:

      It depends on the product, but most foundations use chemical rather than physical sunscreens if they list SPF on the packaging (when they list an SPF it will be under active ingredients). There are some that don’t say SPF but still include one for other reasons such as thickening or something. You can learn more about why I say to avoid chemical sunscreens in my skin care ingredients to avoid during pregnancy post.

    Hello could you please advise if Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation is safe? Thank you

    THE MAGIC FORMULA:

    Mushroom Extract: A concentrated mushroom extract that firms skin. It instantly tightens pores whilst flooding the skin with moisture, for a comfortable, nourished yet flawless finish.

    Genius Hyaluronic Filling Spheres: What makes Hyaluronic Acid so beneficial is its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. These “genius” spheres absorb into the skin and plump up wrinkles from within. In 1 hour skin looks smoother and firmer, plus more supple and youthful.

    Super-Charged Vitamin C (VC-IP): Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant that fights the damaging and ageing effects of free radicals. My Magic Foundation is the first time this new super-charged Vitamin C has been used in a foundation. With consistent use, it helps skin build new collagen (essential for youthful elasticity), reduces the appearance of age spots by 75% in four months, and reduces the appearance of acne after 9 weeks.

    Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Protects from damaging rays so skin can retain a healthy, youthful look.

    Aqua/Water/Eau, Cyclopentasiloxane, Talc, Cyclohexasiloxane, Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Titanium Dioxide (Nano), Glycerin, Nylon-12, Hdi/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Zinc Oxide, Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Alumina, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Dehydroacetic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Benzoic Acid, Dimethicone, Tetrasodium Edta, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, Propylene Carbonate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Butylene Glycol, Silica, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fomes Officinalis (Mushroom) Extract, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, [May Contain/Peut Contenir (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499)].

      Unfortunately the issue isn’t likely to be the foundation, it’s more likely the hormones run amok. I was like this when I was pregnant too for the first half of both pregnancies, everything made me break out. I masked like crazy with a clay mask, but all of the foundations really formulated for breakouts have salicylic acid, which you can’t use in pregnancy 🙁

          All of these ingredients are fine. Note that powder makeup sits on the surface of your skin and is fine to not worry about. Eyeliner is mostly waxes that also sits on the surface and isn’t absorbed. Mascara is only applied to the lengths of your lashes, which are dead proteins and don’t absorb anything either. There’s more information in my pregnancy safe makeup post, but don’t worry! These are all ok 🙂

        the cleanser has a retinoid, so definitely don’t use it while pregnant and if you’re conservative about what you use during nursing you wouldn’t use it then either.
        The resurfacing gel has glycolic acid and is ok for nursing but not pregnancy

    Hi,

    Thanks for your article! I heard you can use silicia, but I can’t find foundation or setting without it. I’d also prefer to use something mineral-based. I was looking into BareMinerals & Juice Beauty. Are there products out there without it? Is it safe to use if it’s not the top ingredient?

    Hi Dr. Christine,

    Please have a look at my foundations. I am 6 weeks pregnant and is very concern that I would not harm my baby. This page is so accommodating for us preggy moms. Thank you so much!

    You mentioned that L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation is safe? Is this the same as L’Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Mattifying Infallible Foundation or the 24H Stay Fresh Foundation?

    INGREDIENTS: AQUA / WATER, DIMETHICONE, ISODODECANE, NYLON-12, ACRYLATES / POLYTRIMETHYLSILOXYMETHACRYLATE COPOLYMER, SILICA, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, PEG-10 DIMETHICONE, ISOHEXADECANE, ISONONYL ISONONANOATE, PENTYLENE GLYCOL, SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE, BIS-PEG/PPG-14/14 DIMETHICONE, MAGNESIUM SULFATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, ACRYLATES COPOLYMER, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, DISODIUM STEAROYL GLUTAMATE, CALCIUM GLUCONATE, PERLITE, MAGNESIUM GLUCONATE, TOCOPHEROL, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, .

(F. I. L. B163109/2).

    Can I still use them? I am afraid no, because of the parabens in the 24H Stay Fresh & Powder Foundation.

    Also, can you please have a look at this one? I just recently bought Maybelline Age Rewind Radiant Firming Make up, before learning that I am pregnant. I think I should avoid this one too, because of the anti-aging formula & parabens.

    Active Ingredient: Octinoxate 4.5%. Inactive Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Talc, Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Tribehenin, Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Polymethyl Silsesquioxane, Peg/Ppg 18/18 Dimethicone, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Laureth-4, Diphenyl Dimethicone, Methylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract, Propylparaben, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Tocopherol, Caffeine, Aluminum Hydroxide, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Propylene Glycol, Panthenol, Alcohol Denat.

      I swear L’Oreal names soooo many of their products exactly the same thing! It gets super confusing. I linked to the specific products to help avoid confusion, but if they change packaging… ugh!

      So, the foundations you have here, the first is fine, but the 2nd has a chemical sunscreen. Powders you don’t need to worry about at all, but that list looks fine. The Maybelline also has a chemical sunscreen.

          Because they sit on the surface of the skin and aren’t absorbed. The skin is actually a barrier, very few things can penetrate and they have a hard time doing so.

        Great, thanks! I really like it so far! The only issue I have with it is that I’m the lightest shade 1C0 and the shade in this foundation is not the same as in the Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear foundation (which is my perfect shade match and favorite foundation). The shade still works for me though, I just can’t build it up too much, otherwise it’s more obvious that it’s a little too dark and pink. The formula on this is better for my dry skin this time of year though.

    Hi Doctor,

    I see the YSL all in one glow tinted moisturizer is among the list of unsafe products for pregnancy. I am really concerned because I’ve been using it for months and that it’s in my blood stream. I’m planning to try to conceive soon. Should I wait a certain time for the product to get out of my system before trying to conceive? Sorry if this seems like a silly question but I’m worried. For reference please see ingredients below: Water, Glycerin, Caprylyl Methicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Propanediol, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Propylene Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Triethoxysilylethyl Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance, Disodium EDTA, Alumina, Dipropylene Glycol, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Citrate, BHT, Benzyl Alcohol, Tocopherol.

        When I went to America, what I did was checking your list of safe foundation (or the comments below) -> find a Youtube review of vbloggers trying the product -> go to sephora to ask for sample. But somehow all the ones that I decided to try was not agreeing with my asian combo skin. So on the very last day before I left America, I just went to Ulta and pick this one up (as strongly recommended by Thataylaa on Youtube) figer-crossing that it would be safe too.

        Your great effort putting into replying all the comments are very much appreciated! <3

        Hi! I’m new to your blog and admire your helpful work for people out there trying to figure out what’s safe to wear, especially when there’s a baby on board 😉

        I was just about to ask if Bare Mineral’s COMPLEXION RESCUE™ HYDRATING FOUNDATION STICK SPF 25
        is safe for pregnancy, and I noticed Mini’s post (above) was missing a few ingredients. I’m not sure if it’s because her’s does not include sunscreen or the way the make-up ingredients are listed was confusing because it separates active and inactive ingredients, but here’s the full list:

        1. Volcanic Sea Water: Filtered through volcanic rock and sourced from the legendary Jeju Island, this mineral-rich sea water helps deliver a burst of hydration.

        2. Red Algae: Has been shown to possess better hydration properties than hyaluronic acid.

        3. Squalane: Derived from olives, this nourishing ingredient helps to prevent moisture loss.

        4. Mineral Sunscreen: Titanium Dioxide provides mineral-based SPF protection.

        5. Pollution Protection Complex: Protects against environmental aggressors, heavy metals and blue light.

        Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 4.15% Sunscreen.

        Inactive Ingredients: Sea Water, Water, Coconut Alkanes, Squalane, Paraffin, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, Glycerin, Bis-Butyldimethicone Polyglyceryl-3, Jojoba Esters, Lauryl Peg-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Saccharomyces/Xylinum/Black Tea Ferment, Isostearic Acid, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Dimethicone, Trifluoropropyldimethyl/Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Trehalose, Moringa Oleifera Seed Extract, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Salicornia Herbacea Extract, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Extract, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Sea Salt, Biosaccharide Gum-4, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Peg-12 Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Lauroyl Lysine, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopherol, Silica, Aluminum Hydroxide, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Microcrystalline Wax, Propanediol, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Carrageenan, Stearic Acid, Trisodium Edta, Aluminum Dimyristate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, 1,2-Hexanediol, Boron Nitride, Disodium Phosphate, Citric Acid, Bht, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol.

        I love it! It makes your skin look so smooth esp if you use the right primer under it. I have dry skin and it doesn’t seem to stick to any dry patches. It covers very well and is nice and lightweight. It does pull a little yellow (I am more neutral toned) but I chose a cool tone and it counteracts it well!! This is my new favorite!!

    Hello Doc,
    I have also question regarding Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup. You wrote, that it is not safe in pregnancy because of Salicylic Acid, but according to this website: https://shop.nordstrom.com/, there is no Salicylic Acid in it, only 10-Hydroxydecanoic Acid (ist this a Salicylic Acid?). Please let me know if it can be used during pregnancy.

      The Salicylic Acid is listed separately in the active ingredient list on the packaging, but online (even the clinique website) they only list the inactive ingredients. It’s listed on the front of the packaging though so I wouldn’t use it.

      This looks fine, but it is missing the ingredients that make it SPF 25 (it only says may contain Titanium Dioxide at the end), Sephora didn’t list the “active ingredients” for this one. I can’t say it is 100% safe without knowing what those are, sorry!

      I don’t have access to the Chanel ingredient lists without emailing the brand directly, and these lists vary by country, so to obtain all of the lists it would take me weeks (this is why I don’t comment without readers supplying lists, sorry but this is a HUGE time investment for me without chasing down ingredient lists, that makes it even worse). In general Chanel uses chemical sunscreens for all of their foundations and skincare which means none of them are safe to use during pregnancy.

          I have looked all over and have found a few random Asian sites with ingredients for Chanel products, but when I check them against my own the lists are different, so it isn’t helpful for creating a safe list. I emailed Chanel and they said I could ask for 3 products at a time and that was it, and they would limit how often I could ask. Oh well. I wish I had a Chanel PR contact to ask!

      There’s nothing in the medical literature to suggest you need to worry about japanese honeysuckle. In fact, the data regarding parabens isn’t as skewed as sites like the EWG suggest, the medical community thinks they are safe.

        or is it fine if i didn’t use it daily?

    I’m considering trying MAX FACTOR Facefinity 3 In 1 Foundation, and couldn’t find it on your list. So I was simply wondering if I can use that one, or if you could recommend another good foundation for me?

      I had read that too about the perfumes, when I asked my OB he said that it was such a small amount and such a gross overgeneralization for something that we have no data to support that I shouldn’t worry about it.

      This has a chemical sunscreens (the Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate), I haven’t found a Chanel product yet that is mineral sunscreen based. So, I would avoid it while pregnant but it’s ok for nursing. And I say that as a fellow Chanel user, their foundations/BB creams and such are always my favorite as they match me perfectly.

    Hi there I’m just switching over a lot of my makeup and skincare routine since finding your site. It’s been super helpful btw and I do wish I would’ve found it with my first baby. It was such a headache trying to figure out what was safe or not. Anyways I picked up some tarte Amazonian clay foundation today but also got a BB cream for days when I don’t get all done up and want sunscreen with a little tint. Could you tell me if it’s safe… I don’t see the obvious things like chemical sunscreens,retinol, or salicylic acid. Just want to be sure. Thank you in advance!
