Pregnancy Safe Products from Peter Thomas Roth

Pregnancy Safe Products from Peter Thomas Roth

Pregnancy safe skincare 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. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find every pregnancy safe skincare product from Peter Thomas Roth as of 9/5/2021. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about Peter Thomas Roth on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.

            The wrinkle resist has retinyl palmitate so how is it safe?

          • 4.25.19
            15mins said:

            Looking at the list now it is NOT the same as when the products were first released, it is about twice as long. And I looked carefully for retinoids before, because I expected them to be there. So, you’re right, it isn’t safe. But please note I am at the mercy of online ingredient lists, which can change and be updated and that is NOT my fault, please give me a little grace. I work with the information I am given.

      I would avoid this while pregnant for sure and while nursing if you’re being conservative due to the retinoid. It also has tartaric acid to avoid while pregnant

        I know you already reviewed the Pumpkin enzyme mask. I just ordered mine before becoming pregnant. The ingredients on my box do not include Retinyl Palmitate as the previous poster mentioned. Is it still unsafe?

          Christine said:

          Sometimes there are slight variations out there (especially if you’re in a different country), which is why I always recommend checking your actual packaging. I don’t see any other ingredients of concern in this list, but check yours carefully for other ingredients of concern.

    • 12.19.19

      It depends on whether the AHA is within an extract (which doesn’t count) or is a higher concentration chemical listed on its own. I look at the actual ingredient list, not what the brand puts in a product description.

      I would avoid it in pregnancy for sure due to the kojic acid, and it’s one you might consider avoiding while nursing as well if you’re conservative about it. The Tranexamic Acid can be used to clot blood, and it’s one that I can’t find anything to say you definitely need to avoid it, but I would likely avoid it myself while pregnant/nursing

However, it includes Propylene Glycol When using the longest, the pregnant is very easy to cause irritation, causing the skin to age quickly, when absorbed into the body, it will increase the risk of damage to the brain, liver, kidneys, heart …

    Sodium Pca
    Tocopherol

    Caprooyl Phytosphingosine
    Caprooyl Sphingosine
    Saccharide Isomerate
    Saccharomyces/Magnesium Ferment
    Saccharomyces/Iron Ferment
    Saccharomyces/Copper Ferment
    Saccharomyces/Silicon Ferment
    Saccharomyces/Zinc Ferment
    Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract
    Methyl Gluceth-20

      The list of ingredients that I screen out is here:
      skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      Propylene Glycol does not have enough evidence that the medical community widely thinks it should be avoided in pregnancy (note, my list is pretty conservative). It is irritating but not to all skin types, and this list isn’t about potential irritants. If you think I would knowingly not screen out unsafe ingredients, I think you need to realize how rude you are being and also seek information elsewhere.

        Dear Doctor,

        I just asked because it was quite worrying when some websites mentioned Propylene Glycol. I am sorry if my question is that you are uncomfortable. Anyway, thanks for your reply, now I was able to continue using this product with confidence. This is useful website, many thanks !

    First of all – thank you so much! Your work is priceless and unmatched – nobody does anything like that. Thank you-thank you-thank you.

    I have a question about 21 Peptide moisturizer. It’s on an OK list, however, the link takes us to the old (beloved) product, which Sephora, sadly, doesn’t cary but PTR and Nordstrom do. Wanted to make sure that I’m actually looking at the product you OK-ed. Nordstrom contains the easy-to-access ingredient link

    Also, overall, are peptides the same as growth factors and should they be avoided? Very confused, as you can see. THANK YOU

      Christine said:

      The peptides aren’t the same as the growth factors I think should likely be avoided. This product does have this ingredient that I always wonder a bit about…
      I haven’t added it to the “avoid this” list, but when people ask about products with it, I sometimes point it out. Otherwise the ingredients here are ok for pregnancy and nursing.
