Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Caudalie

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Caudalie

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 Caudalie as of 5/24/2020. 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.

Note, Caudalie and Sephora often call the same product by different names, and that sometimes is different from what is on the actual product. Please look at similar names and check a couple of products for your favorites! I defaulted to the names used on the Caudalie website.

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.

    The Caudalie website says some of their products aren’t BF safe, but you have them listed here as safe. I’ve been using them and am curious- are they safe or not? I’m hoping they are otherwise I would feel awful! Have you seen their website?

      I haven’t seen that on the caudalie site, but my list of things to avoid is pretty conservative. I’m not sure what they are saying to avoid that I don’t have on my list.

        Hi,

        On the Caudalie qebsite (FAQ) here what the company says:

        In the early months of pregnancy and when breastfeeding, as a precaution we recommend avoiding products concentrated in essential oils and containing glycolic acid. These include our night oils Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Oil, Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil, all of the products in the Vinopure Collection, Contouring Concentrate, Glycolic Peel Mask, Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening EssencePurifying Mask, and the Instant Detox Mask,Beauty Elixir, as well as the Crushed Cabernet Scrub. Vinexpert Dietary Supplementsare also not recommended for pregnant women.
        If you have the slightest doubt, we recommend that you consult your doctor, who is best qualified to inform you.

        It says « in the early months » does it mean that after 1st semester it is ok? I am confused.
        Thank you

    Hi! Thanks for your info, it is really helpful! I have been looking all over for the products that are safe to use, it is a dificult search until I found your info! Thanks!
    I have a question about vinopure natural oil control moisturizer because i can see in the ingredients that it has salicylic acid on it and this compound is usually known as non safe for pregnancy, if you could clarify this to me I would be greatful!
    Same with Premier Cru eye treatment because it has caffeine on it.

    Thank you very much!

      Hi Monica,
      These are the ingredients for the Vinopure Natureal Oil Control Moisturizer. I don’t see Salicylic Acid listed on the Sephora site and this product isn’t on the Caudalie website. Where are you seeing the salicylic acid, is it on the packaging? You’re right that it should be avoided, I’m just trying to find out where you saw that.

        I’m sorry. I made a mistake with the spanish name of the vinopure oil control lotion, it is not the same product than the moisturizer that appears in your post. The oil control moisturizer does not have salicilyc acid.

      Please carefully read the post above- This list is everything that was pregnancy safe as of the review date. I had reviewed the entire brand at that time, and the products were included on a long list of pregnancy safe skincare. I have since separated the products out into individual brands as it got too long, and on my next review I will list out all of the other products. But if your product was available before that date, it is NOT included as it was not safe.

    Jessica said:

    Hi, I love your blog and appreciate how much effort you’ve put into helping other women!

    I have a question about tyrosine inhibitors in Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. Caudalie states that the Viniferine (grapevine extract) in its Radiance serum prevents the appearance of dark spots by controlling tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the overproduction of melanin: https://en.caudalie.com/about-caudalie/ingredients-and-patents/viniferine.html

    Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) isn’t in Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, but I’ve read that it’s also a tyrosine inhibitor. You’ve mentioned that Licorice Root should be avoided because it acts through inhibition of tyrosine, and it is unclear the effects this could have on an unborn baby. Shouldn’t Viniferine and Vitamin C be avoided for the same reason? (I am hoping you’ll say Viniferine and Vitamin C are safe for some reason; otherwise I don’t know what I’ll do about my dark spots!)

    Also, my understanding is that tyrosine inhibitors slow down pigment creation, but Niacinamide is not an inhibitor; it works by detering pigment transfer instead. Is that why you consider Niacinamide safe?

    • 5.30.19
      15mins said:

      Yes, niacinamide is currently considered safe because it works slightly differently. Vitamin C is also felt to be safe because although it somewhat acts through the tyrosine inhibition, it is found in large amounts in many foods (a much higher level of exposure than topical use), but note that other ingredients that act more strongly through the tyrosine pathway like that have been somewhat implicated in birth defects, that’s why it’s pretty universally recommended to avoid hydroquinone, arbutin, etc during pregnancy. And note we’ll never be able to truly study if any of these ingredients are safe during pregnancy or not, the studies that would really prove safety are unethical to do. So we make assumptions and inferences. So the OBs I’ve talked to and the reading I’ve done says that we’re fine using Vitamin C and Niacinamide, and I consider the Vioperfect Radiance Serum to be ok.

      • 5.30.19
        Jessica said:

        Thank you so much for the quick response! I suspected it was just that the “avoid” tyrosine inhibitors were stronger than Vitamin C and Viniferine. I’m relieved I don’t have to give up all my products!

    May I ask you about the resveratrol line of Caudalie. Is resveratrol safe during pregnancy? Because I read articles about avoiding it. I am quite confused and I really love that products and would love to be able to continue using the during pregnancy.

    Thank you so much in advance.

      The evidence isn’t strong enough that we recommend avoiding resveratrol (meaning, ACOG doesn’t have a statement against it and I don’t know any OBs that recommend avoiding it, but you can check with yours). There’s also a lot of studies looking into use of it during pregnancy and improved outcomes from different maternal nutrition issues. But note all the studies I’ve found pertain to oral supplementation, not topical use. So, not enough evidence that we say to avoid it at that higher exposure, and topical is a lower level of exposure.

    Thanks for all the info on this website! It’s super helpful. Caudalie just came out with a new line, Vinopure, which has “natural salicylic acid”. There’s facewash, toner, serum, and moisturizer. Assuming they aren’t safe? But if they are–sounds like what my skin needs for blackheads and breakouts!

    In the early months of pregnancy and when breastfeeding, as a precaution we recommend avoiding products concentrated in essential oils and containing glycolic acid. These include our night oils Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Oil, Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil, all of the products in the Vinopure Collection, Contouring Concentrate, Glycolic Peel Mask, Purifying Mask, and the Instant Detox Mask,Beauty Elixir, as well as the Crushed Cabernet Scrub. Vinexpert Dietary Supplementsare also not recommended for pregnant women.

      skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      As well as why sometimes brands and I disagree here: pregnancy beauty FAQ

      I’m a physician, with training in providing recommendations regarding medications and products during pregnancy and nursing. There are no definitive sources and very few absolutes regarding the safety of these ingredients during pregnancy and nursing, as the experiments we would need to do to prove our theories are all unethical. My list of ingredients to avoid is actually very conservative, but I don’t know any physicians who recommend avoiding all essential oils. It’s up to the person and their own comfort level.
