Pregnancy Safe Skincare from GlamGlow

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from GlamGlow

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 GlamGlow as of 7/15/2020. 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.

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.

    Good Morning,

    Just wondering your thoughts on the new Glamglow Omega rich face moisturizer.

    -Hemp Seed Oil: Reduces the look of redness and calms irritation.
    -Chaga Mushroom: Helps soothe daily skin stress and protect against blue light exposure.
    -Hyaluronic Acid: Moisturizes to instantly replenish depleted skin.

    Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Pentylene Glycol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Peg-100 Stearate, Fuscoporia Obliqua Sclerotium Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Zingiber Officianle (Ginger) Root Extract, Linoleic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Bisabolol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ishoexadecane, Octyldodecanol, Cellulose, Polysorbate 80, Butylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, BHT, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxythanol, Potassium Sorbate, Blue 1 (CI 42090, Yellow 5 (CI 19140).

      I think hemp/CBD/Cannabis products should be avoided during pregnancy. Here’s my reasoning:
      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 there are hemp and CBD products that still test positive for THC). 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.

      This has licorice root that I wouldn’t use while pregnant, but it is ok fo nursing. I was surprised when they d/c’d this product, it’s kind of their signature, I thought?

        Emily said:

        Thank you! I think the youthmud mask is a signature but maybe not this cleanser. Maybe they’ll bring it back, though, which would be great because I love it!

          I thought it was the whole YouthMud line, but yes, the mask is their signature even more! I wouldn’t be surprised to see it make Limited Edition appearances for holidays and such!

        Hi! Your website has been so helpful! I was wondering about glam glow supertoner is pregnancy safe. I’m leaning towards no because of the edta? But it’s phalates and paraben free. I would love your opinion! Here is the ingredient list.
        Water\aqua\eau, alcohol denat, propanediol, mandelic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, tartaric acid, pyruvic acid, charcoal powder, eucalyptus globulus leaf powder, eucalyptus globulus leaf, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) extract, algae extract, salix alba (willow) bark extract, nylon-12, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, sodium hydroxide, citric acid, fragrance (parfum), limonene, linalool, disodium edta, phenoxyethanol, mica, titanium dioxide (ci 77891), iron oxides (ci 77499).

          I would avoid this due to all of the hydroxy acids (glycolic, salicylic, tartaric) as well as the salicylate (willow bark extract). EDTA, phalates and even parabens have enough evidence of safety that the medical community doesn’t recommend avoiding them.
