Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Drunk Elephant

What products from Drunk Elephant are safe to use while 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 pregnancy safe skincare product from Drunk Elephant as of 1/30/2019. 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.

      I have reviewed the entire line, if your product isn’t listed above then it isn’t safe.

    Just curious what ingredient(s) in the C-Tango eye cream makes it unsafe during pregnancy. I really wanted to try it but was bummed to see that it’s not on the safe list. Thanks!

      I have a stricter definition of pregnancy safe than Drunk Elephant.

    Thanks for this list. 3 of my staple skincare products are on the not safe for pregnancy list. Going to switch back to CeraVe for now! Really thankful you put this list together.

    Hello! So the Sukari baby facial is safe for nursing women? When I asked Drunk Elephant on their ig, they mentioned that it isnt, now I’m confused as I really would love to try it!

      I don’t know what their criteria are for nursing women, but I think it’s fine.

    Is the soybean extract safe in the protini while pregnant? I know eating a lot of soy isn’t reccomended but didn’t know how that translated to skincare

      I wouldn’t go crazy eating a lot of soy, but you’ll get a lot more exposure from eating 1 tofu cube than applying it topically for a year. Should be ok!
