Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Fresh

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Fresh

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 Fresh as of 7/24/2021. 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.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about Fresh on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.

Note, Fresh’s website often doesn’t list products by the name on the packaging. Everything has been listed here by what is on the package.

    One question I do have.. What are you throughts on hair products, and lip products? I do know some of my hair leave in sprays have a salycilate ingredient, and some of my plumping lip glosses have retinyl palmiatate. I’m assuming leave off the lip gloss, and I would assume the leave in treatments, if they have this ingredient (saly..) but what about shampoos etc? Does the same go for them as well?

    • 4.16.19
      15mins said:

      Lip products you actually eat, so they have more exposure than most other skincare products. Hair products you don’t need to worry about unless you’re leaving them on your scalp for an extended period of time. Hair spray for example I wouldn’t worry about, but a treatment shampoo that you’re leaving in for 5 minutes or so I would.

      I address that in this post: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      Essentially, as long as you’re not bathing in large amounts of oils (which won’t happen when small amounts are in these formulations, even if you’re applying to your entire body every day) it’s ok.

      You can use it, but note that the usual advice to avoid fragrance during pregnancy is because it is a sensitizing time, meaning you’re more likely to develop a reaction to an ingredient.

      Ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to licorice root
      The Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate is also a neuropeptide that absorbs into your skin and is meant to “freeze” your muscles similar to botox. I don’t have info on safety but it’s definitely something I’m leary of.

    Hi, you’ve listed the Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment Lip Balm as safe during pregnancy. However, I did notice that it has Ammonium Glycyrrhizate on the ingredient list (according to fresh.com and Sephora). Can you confirm that the presence of this ingredient would make the formulation safe for nursing but not pregnancy? Thanks!
