Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Malin+Goetz

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Malin+Goetz

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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Malin+Goetz as of 3/1/2024. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for your website! Absolutely invaluable. Question for you about the Peppermint Shampoo. I see that it’s listed as safe, but it includes mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, which is one of the few essential oils that What to Expect When You’re Expecting says to particularly avoid.

    The peppermint scent of this shampoo is very strong, so I just want to double-check its safety in case the ingredients have changed. Ingredients:

    water/aqua/eau, sodium laurylglucosides hydroxypropylsulfonate, glycerin, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, sorbitol, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate, cocamidopropyl betaine, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, lauryl glucoside, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, sodium pca, sodium lactate, arginine, aspartic acid, pca, panthenol, glycine, alanine, serine, valine, proline, threonine, isoleucine, histidine, phenylalanine, hydrolyzed quinoa, polyquaternium-7, gluconolactone, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, limonene.

    Thank you!

      You can pretty much find info out there about avoiding everything possible, much of which isn’t based on much. It’s not considered an ingredient to avoid by the medical community. My list of ingredients that I screen out is very conservative and it’s here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
