Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Alba Botanica

What products from Alba Botanica are safe if you are pregnant?

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 skincare product (that I reviewed) from Alba Botanica as of 3/16/2019. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. On my next review I will add every other product to the other categories so you’ll know why I didn’t consider them to be safe. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

Alba Botanica is a 100% vegetarian and Leaping Bunny certified brand. You can find it at drugstores, Whole Foods and online.

      You don’t need to worry about hair products, so don’t worry about your shampoo.

      #1 and #3 have a salicylate, I would avoid them while pregnant but they’re ok for nursing.
      #2 is ok

    Hello,

    I’m so glad you’ve provided such a detailed list, I’m a little worried, I just found out I’m pregnant last week (around 9weeks gone) and I’ve been using alba products that are on the unsafe list every day as they’re part of my regular skin care routine, of course I will now cease using them, but could I of caused any lasting harm to my baby?

    Regularly using the deep pore wash and the face and body scrub.

    I hope to hear back from you shortly.
