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! 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.

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. Finally, remember that you do not need to worry about powder foundations, as they sit on the surface of the skin and are much less likely to be absorbed.

          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. May Contain (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163).

    Hi Doctor!

    I tried to search for Mineral Fusion Liquid Mineral Foundation’s ingredients on Mineral Fusion website and online but did not get to find a complete list of ingredients like I did compared to previous Cover FX Total Cover Cream foundation I asked about. However, here’s the complete description of this product on Mineral Fusion website:

    Skin-Soothing
    Formulated with only the safest, most gentle ingredients, the natural UV protection of minerals, plus skin-soothing Licorice Root, Aloe Vera, and Lavender. Great for use on all skin types.

    Formula Purity
    Gluten Free :: Cruelty Free :: Paraben Free :: Artificial Color Free :: Fragrance Free :: Talc Free :: Hypo-allergenic :: Phthalate Free

    https://www.mineralfusion.com/collections/cosmetics/products/liquid-mineral-foundation?variant=4085336387

        I’m so relieved! Thank you very much!
        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
