Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Farmacy

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Farmacy

Pregnancy safe beauty products 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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Farmacy as of 1/24/2022. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. 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.

      I recommend avoiding all Cannabis products during pregnancy, here’s my little blurb on it:
      There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well. Note Hemp does not have THC in it, it’s breed out of the plant basically (though occasionally there are some hemps that will still test positive for THC, they sometimes still make very small amounts). But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.

    Hi, I don’t see salicylic acid in the ingredients for the Dew It eye cream. In Sephora’s site it says it’s a ‘clean’ product’. Am I missing something

      I don’t see it listed now either, though it was before. It may have been a mistake on the website (listing it or not listing it), or a reformulation. If these are the ingredients currently it looks fine, but I would check on the packaging to be sure before using it.

        I don’t see this ingredient list on Sephora nor at their website and cannot find the Malic acid you are talking about. And the ingredient list is not that long. Could it be that they changed the sunscreen in total?

          Your IP address indicates you’re in Croatia, so that may be part of it as frequently brands have different versions for the EU and US (about 90% of my readers are in the US like I am). The US sites for Farmacy and Sephora now say NEW all over the place, and no malic acid (so likely a reformulation), but now there’s gluconolactone so still ok for nursing but not pregnancy.

    Hi!

    I know the 10% Niacinamide Night Mask is listed as safe to use, but I have a couple of questions about the general use of some of the listed ingredients.

    1) Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter – Shea butter seems to be a pretty prevalent ingredient in pregnancy related products like stretch mark creams so I assume it’s definitely safe to use. However, it’s also rich in Vitamin A. Is this similar to rosehip oil where it’s actually considered ok for pregnancy even though it is high in Vitamin A?

    2) Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Flower/Leaf Extract Ocimum Sanctum Leaf Extract – I’ve read that Basil essential oil should be avoided in pregnancy. However, some of the sources I’ve found don’t seem to have a lot of medical/scientific backing. Have you heard anything related to pregnant women needing to avoid?

    Thank you so much for all that you do! So grateful to be able to have access to this amazing resource!

    • 4.5.22
      Christine said:

      Lots of things are rich in natural vitamin A, but it’s really the retinoid family that we worry about and when it’s added as it’s own chemical.
      Basil is one of those things that has almost no evidence to back it up. Rosemary is similar. We don’t say you should avoid eating it, which is a much bigger exposure than a little bit in a cream.
