Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Burt’s Bees

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Burt's Bees

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 Burt’s Bees as of 8/17/2020. 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.

Which hair products do you need to worry about?

Technically, none. Most OBs will tell you not to worry about any hair products. Your hair is a dead protein, and it can not absorb anything. It’s amazing how pregnancy brain can take over and we forget that simple fact!

Personally, I screened products that would sit on my scalp for a few minutes (aka- shampoos, scrubs, etc). My thought process was that those products would be similar to a face wash, even if washed off right away it sits there for a bit. So, on this list you’ll find products that sit on your scalp. This is shampoo, scalp treatments and root styling products. Other styling products should just be on the hair shaft, and if you’re worried about sprays being inhaled, I recommend holding your breath while you spray and then step away a few feet.

      I’ve reviewed this entire line and have only included the pregnancy safe products so far. I’ll expand eventually to tell you why i didn’t like the others, but I haven’t had a chance yet with Burt’s Bees. But if it isn’t included here then I didn’t think it was safe for pregnancy.

        Diane said:

        Can you say anything more about the first ingredient “ricinus communis (castor) seed oil”? I’m a little paranoid about that given that castor oil can be used to induce labor. Is your view that this is a safe ingredient in the amounts in these products? I just recently purchased Burts Bees Sunny Day 221 100% Natural lip gloss, where it’s the first ingredient, and two lipsticks (Satin Lipstick 510 Blush Basin, Glossy Lipstick 504 Nude Rain) where it is the second ingredient, after diheptyl succinate (Satin) and capryloyl glycerin/sebaric acid coploymer (Glossy). It is also found as the 6th ingredient in a product you marked as safe above, Intense Hydration Night Cream. (Thank you, your site has been a godsend!)

          15mins said:

          You actually need to take quite a bit by mouth to induce labor, a little topically won’t do it.

    Holly Morgan said:

    Hi I found this article when I was looking to make sure that the intense hydration cream and mask were safe since it has clary sage in it. I was reading that clary sage oil can cause uterine contractions and has been used to induce labor but can cause miscarriage if used too early in the pregnancy. So why is the that safe in the cream and mask? TIA!

    • 5.10.19
      15mins said:

      You need massive quantities to induce, it’s impossible to do that topically basically. I’ve asked a few OBs about it and they agreed with me.

    Hi, I’m wondering about the Burt’s Bees cucumber and sage facial towelettes. I’ve heard you should avoid sage in pregnancy. I know you already responded to a post about clary sage, would the sage in the face wipes be safe then because it’s in small quantities ? Here is the list of ingredients. Thanks.
    Ingredients: aqua (water, eau), aloe barbadensis leaf juice, polyglyceryl-4 caprate, cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, salvia offcinalis (sage) leaf extract, tocopherol, citric acid, xanthan gum, dicaprylyl carbonate, caprylyl/capryl glucoside, glycerin, glycine soja (soybean) oil, benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, parfum (natural fragrance), phenoxyethanol, hydroxycitronellal, citronellol, amyl cinnamal.

      Yes, the sage is fine. Much less exposure than from eating it, and you can still eat regular sage. These ingredients are fine! 🙂

      More info on the extracts/oils in my post on ingredients to avoid during pregnancy. Unless a specific issue is found, the studies that would really prove safety can’t be done, they’re unethical. Most extracts/oils are fine, but there are concerns specifically for Neem and Willow Bark, so I recommend avoiding those. Typically in a mixture of oils or products like this, there isn’t enough to worry about things too much, but I wouldn’t recommend applying a large amount of tea tree oil at one time for example.

      Pregnancy is also considered a “sensitizing” time, meaning you will have reactions to products you’ve been fine with before, and that reaction will possibly persist after delivery. For that reason I recommend avoiding products with a lot of extracts and botanicals, many of them have limited proven benefits (other than they are “natural” and it makes us feel better about that). When possible, go for shorter ingredient lists if possible, it’s easier to sort out what you reacted to later on. I hope that makes sense. In the scheme of things, both of these products have “shorter” lists, you should see some of the products I review! Both of these lists look safe to me.

      I hope that helps!

      According to the Amazon ingredient list, the pink grapefuit towelettes do not contain either ingredient you listed. Is Amazon incorrect? Or are the taboo ingredients hidden under different names? I really like these towelettes, so I am very curious! THANKS!

      • 1.4.20
        15mins said:

        I reviewed the ingredient list on the Burt’s Bees website. I’ve frequently found errors on the Amazon page listings, so I don’t trust those.

        This is the list for those towelettes that I just now pulled from the brand website:
        Ingredients: aqua (water, eau), glycerin, decyl oleate, oleyl erucate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, coco-caprylate, hibiscus sabdari¬a flower extract, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, rubus idaeus (raspberry) seed oil, citrullus lanatus (watermelon) fruit extract, lens esculenta (lentil) fruit extract, vaccinium myrtillus fruit extract, adansonia digitata fruit extract, scutellaria alpina flower/leaf/stem extract, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) fruit extract, citrus medica limonum (lemon) fruit extract, acer saccharum (sugar maple) extract, salix nigra (willow) bark extract, beta vulgaris (beet, extrait de racine de betterave) root extract, saccharum o cinarum (sugar cane, extrait de canne á sucre) extract, hydrolyzed corn starch, sodium PCA, ribose, lysolecithin, sclerotium gum, pullulan, glycine soja (soybean) oil, xanthan gum, polyglyceryl-4 caprate, arginine, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, sodium phytate, tocopherol, lactic acid, citric acid, p-anisic acid, alcohol denat., sodium lactate, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, parfum (fragrance)*, phenoxyethanol, eugenol, limonene, linalool *natural fragrance

        I have bolded the willow bark (considered a salicylate) and the dipotassium glycyrrhizate, which is a derivative of licorice root. I would personally avoid these while pregnant, but use them while nursing.

I’m only in my first trimester, is it safe for me to use this face wash and lotion or could it potentially cause preterm labor? This might be a dumb question but as a first time mom I’m worried.

      The Bakuchiol has been billed as working the same way as retinoids, and I haven’t been able to confirm or deny that info when I try to search fore more info about how it works.
