Pregnancy Safe Skincare from CeraVe

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from CeraVe

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 CeraVe as of 8/14/2020. 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.

Don’t See Your Product? Read This Before You Ask About It…

Please read the Pregnancy Beauty Guide intro first, where you will learn which products you actually need to worry about (spoiler alert, you don’t need to worry about all makeup or hair products). I will not review products that fall into the “don’t worry about it” categories. If you want to ask about a specific product, I require that you follow these guidelines for asking about pregnancy/nursing safety. You can also learn more about how to use these pregnancy safety lists. I will delete questions that don’t follow the guidelines or are rude.

    So I have a question about PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion marked above as safe. It contains methylparaben and propylparaben so is it still safe to use it during pregnancy? I’ve been using it during my 1st trimester because I found it to be safe, but later I’ve read that methylparaben and propylparaben are hazardous. So I’m confused and worry about my baby.
    Thanks

      The medical community considers parabens safe. Please refer to my post on ingredients to avoid during pregnancy for more information. If you are concerned you can avoid them, but I don’t screen products with parabens out of my pregnancy safe criteria.

    I read your article just now and I am pregnant for 6w 4d. I just learned that the sunscreen is not safe for pregnancy. I will stop using it right away but what will happen with my baby’s development if I have used it already? Any sunscreen recommendation? Thanks.

      I actually left those ones off due to the Pramoxine, I was waiting to hear from an OB friend about that ingredient. We can’t figure out if it is pregnancy safe or not, it’s a category C and the brand recommends talking to your OB. It is a somewhat unusual itch relief ingredient and not found in other topicals. I’d likely talk to your OB about an alternative.

        Oh perfect.
        Speaking about OB, last time my OB mentioned to avoid hyaluronic acid. I was confused because most of the pregnancy safe products I bought were containing it.

        Is there any evidence or maybe she was confused with it and something else ?

        I kept reading but nothing came up.

          Hyaluronic acid isn’t a real acid, it’s a very large molecule (already found in large amounts in your dermis) and is so big it often can’t penetrate down into your skin, and is felt to be safe. Info here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

    For the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, are parabens safe to use during pregnancy? I thought they were not. And parabens are clearly in the ingredients of this product. Thanks for clarifying!

    Hey.

    Regarding the CeraVe am facial moisturizing lotion. It says because of chemical sunscreen, but isn’t the problem with pregnancy and chemical sunscreen the ingredient Oxybenzone or benzophenone-3? I don’t see that in the ingredient list for the CeraVe am? So why is it not safe?

    • 2.4.21
      Christine said:

      All of them have issues, and they’re all well absorbed. Most of them also count as salicylates, and the links to hypospadias have also been found with others beyond the benzophenone-2. That’s why I (and many other physicians) recommend avoiding all of them.

    Hi! Thank you for this resource, the website is very informative and thorough! One question I had was regarding a prop 65 warning that I saw when trying to purchase CeraVe daily Moisturizing lotion. It warns of chemicals that is known to California of causing birth defects and reproductive harm, but all the ingredients are on the approved list. I am feeling overwhelmed with trying to figure out what to use . Thank you for the help!

    • 7.4.21
      Christine said:

      The prop 65 warning in California was something the voters decided to add. It’s pretty much added to everything in the state, when things end up on the “warning” list it’s done in a petri dish, at very high doses. I don’t know any physicians who recommend looking for the warning on items, it’s so broad that it’s actually somewhat useless.

      You can pretty much find info out there about avoiding everything possible, much of which isn’t based on much. It’s not considered an ingredient to avoid by the medical community. My list of ingredients that I screen out is very conservative and it’s here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

    Hello Dr. I have to been using Cerave Skin Renewing Night Cream and when I was looking at other options and comparing I saw this in its description.
    “Encapsulated retinol in a timed-release formula provides mild exfoliation and improves visible signs of aging without irritation” And now I am panicking because I have been using it. I have attached below the ingredients because I could not figure out where the retinol will be.

    Purified Water, Glycerin, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Stearic Acid, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Saccharide Isomerate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Ceramide 6 II, Ceramide 3, Ceramide 1, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Caprooyl Tetrapeptide-3, Tripeptide-1, Cholesterol, Phenoxyethanol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Behentrimonium Methosulphate, Sodium Hydroxide, Tocopherol, Allantoin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Phytosphingosine, Dextran, Xanthan Gum.

      I had this same issue when I reviewed it. I saw that it said that but there’s no retinoid (or anything even close) listed there. And I checked a bunch of other sites and could only find the same list…

        Oh okay! Thank you for your clarification. That makes me feel better!
