Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Biossance

Pregnancy safe pregnancy skincare products from Biossance

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 pregnancy safe skincare products from Biossance as of 5/20/2020. 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.

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.

Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel (at Sephora): Please refer to my post on ingredients to avoid in pregnancy for information on stem cells.
Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil (at Sephora): Willow Bark (Salicylate)

Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing

Note I’m including products with retinoids here, as those are a bit iffy. It depends on how conservative you want to be while nursing (still absolutely contraindicated while pregnant). Refer to my post on ingredients to avoid while nursing for more discussion.

Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum (at Sephora): Bakuchiol is their “phyto-retinol” and I haven’t been able to confirm how closely related this is to other retinoids. I’ve been treating it like a regular retinoid, I recommend complete avoidance while pregnant and the same argument for while nursing.

      It looks safe! If you try it please let me know if it works for acne, I have such a hard time finding pregnancy safe products that work for blemishes. The Tea Tree should help!

        Thank you! The mask was working great 2x week with a few tiny blemishes I was getting, but then I discovered May Lindstrom’s Blue Cocoon and that has really cleared up my skin!

    Hi there!
    I am 8 months pregnant and have looked into the face products I am using but after doing a quick google search to reassure myself all is good (paranoid mama), I noticed you indicate that the Biossence Squalane and Glycolic Facial is not safe. I had spoken with a few people prior to staying to use it and was told it was safe and also wasn’t aware the ingredients you’ve listed were not safe, I’m slightly panicking so would like more information! Thank you!

          15mins said:

          I haven’t changed anything, it was there before. The issue is whether the cell extract is stem cells or not (which is a soft call on my part, they’re likely not able to penetrate anything), the link is in the list still. But lately the Biossance stuff hasn’t really indicated they’re stem cells? It’s confusing sometimes brands label stem cells this way, but sometimes they’re not stem cells and it’s like a soup of cells and cell culture material and they do something with that.

    Hi Doctor,
    Thank you so much for doing all this research! I’m bummed I’m only learning about this site now. I’m 5 months pregnant and trying to use the best products possible that are also safe. These lists have been very helpful so far and I love reading all your content. I’m commenting here because I am just about to order from Biossance. My question is in regard to the ingredient Phenoxyethanol. Which is in a TON of skincare and makeup formulations. These days it’s kinda hard to find products that it’s not listed as an ingredient. In doing my own research it’s usually only used at a 1% or less concentration. My concern is overexposure from repeated products. I’ve seen to avoid if pregnant, breastfeeding or using on a child under 3. I know you don’t have in your skincare ingredients list to avoid. Just was wondering your thought on this. Thank you!!
